Priorities

Changed priorities: Diabetes365, day 269, 14 March 2010

I have had to switch around and evaluate priorities lately!

My priorities right need to be keeping up with my exercising, planning Kavi's 3rd birthday party(it's on Feb 6th), getting needed things for the trip to India, and trying to keep my house in some sort of order. It needs to be put in order in so many ways! I am not a neat freak and I sometimes wish I was! Then maybe I'd stay on top of things better. I get into organizing or cleaning moods once in awhile, when I've finally had enough of the piles of laundry(clean too) or scattered junk on counters. But keeping things in very good order on a daily basis just does not happen.

Things getting majorly neglected are jewelry and pillow making. I have to stop thinking of the shops in a certain way and just keep them open, even if I am not doing much, in case something in there sells. I have to stop comparing to other shops when I don't currently have the focus needed to make a lot of things.

Oh, and my husband's birthday is in 2 days! Kavi's birthday is Feb 1st so their birthdays are very close.

I completely understand your situation. Especially when your children are young, they need a lot of attention (and husbands, too!), and sometimes that means that other things fall by the way side.

I've been trying to figure out ways to use my creativity to make money the last few years, and it is always a challenge to balance family and creativity. My kids are 11 and 14, so they both have been in school awhile. I find I am much more creative/productive in the summertime, and right after school starts in January, as there are not as many projects and tests that have to be taken care of.

I've discovered that a full-time business is not for me, but I can still participate in crafts fairs, or just be creative to please myself. Try not to compare yourself to the other sellers on Etsy, I think you're doing an AMAZING job!
