As soon as the New Year approaches, I am finding myself confused on what to do next, what step to take, and where I want my next journey to be. I like to start with a blank page. This year is going to be different, interested, more accomplished, more traveled, and I really want to push myself, but enjoy it. (I say this every year).
I have spent the last year doing direct sales. I love the products I sell, but I am not always certain that the “job” is for me. I am a more hands on type person. I have yet to find my passion, and something that works well for me and my family. I don’t think I have ever had a job where I knew that is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, and maybe I will never find that. With that being said, I want to try to find it if I can.
My husband has known what he has wanted to do since he was a kid. Lucky him, he has completed it. He loves his job, and it is all he has ever dreamed about. Me on the other hand, I never have had a full dream of what I want to do. I start a lot of things and never finish them. I am scatterbrained, and well, to be honest, the worst multi-tasker in the world. I just can’t do two things at once.
I want to focus and find that little thing that brings passion in my life. Right now, it is fabric. I love it, I swoon after it, I enjoy cutting it up, and I am learning to sew it back together. I make a great mess, and it gives me my own freedom. So this year, I am going to dedicate myself to quilting. I want to get better at the skill, and develop it. I want to make a few quilts, and see if I have the knack, and maybe, if at all possible, it might lead me to a passion. Maybe even great ideas. But I a not 100% sure what will come of it.
So with the move from Hawaii to Florida complete, and we should be fully settled into our new home. It’s time to jump. It’s time to kick. It is time. Nothing should get in my way — well unless my daughter decides not to take a nap, like she is right now. It is time to escape into my little fabric hole, and fill my heart with joy.
