Work Life Balance July 19, 2015 10:36 1 Comment
Well, it feels like I have not written in a while and I haven’t. I was lucky enough to be able to take a month off of serving to really dig into my business. I was doing great with keeping up with #MagazineMondays as well as staying up on top of my searching for good content to post on all my social media outlets. Now that I am back to serving full-time and were all in the full swing of summer I seem to be struggling to find a balance between work and life. Its funny too because I was searching online for quotes related to work life balance and most of them were geared towards being focused on career and having no life. My deal is I am focused on my side hustle but I also serve to pay the bills and there always seems to be something coming up socially. I know that it sounds so “woe is me” but I find it difficult to balance serving, side hustle, friends, family, baseball, relationship, home life etc; it can be a bit overwhelming. Sometimes you just need to step back take a few deep breaths and taking it day by day. And another big thing for me is saying, “No”. I always to commit to heaps, never wanting to let people down but also enjoy staying busy. It’s a vicious cycle, lol. I was also lucky enough to go to Vegas this summer, which was as always amazing! I have also been super busy working with many brides this season creating the perfect gifts for them to give the special ladies standing up beside them ( I will be doing a blog post showcasing all the gifts I did this season). That might be another reason why I feel as though I haven't had as much time for my site. Sourcing out products, creating and making takes longer than I always expect. I have really been loving this side of the business being involved in such a special day for these ladies is great! Tapping into my creative side has been very motivating! I am at a time in my life where everyone seems to be getting engaged or is involved in some sort of wedding so I am hoping this is just the beginning of my wedding work.
On the product side of things; I have the most amazing stock in right now. If you have been following me for a while you know that I had my website redesigned a few months back. I was lucky enough to have a sit down with my web designer who gave me a photoshop tutorial, now that I have all this stock I have been vigorously reading through my notes to try to create great photos. I also began taking all my pictures on some amazing ladies to give my products a real life perspective. All in all I am still here trying to create my Earrings and Stuff empire albeit sometimes stressed, sometimes self conscious, sometimes have major self doubt but I figure if I continue to think positive thoughts the universe will lead me down the path I am supposed to endure.
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
