Melissa Wert at Print Therapy wrote a wonderful blog post recently about enjoying the day to day journey and process of life.  We are so consumed by how much better life will be once we reach our goals that we never appreciate the steps we take to get there.  She summed it up very eloquently: “The Beauty is in the Blooming”.  Her beautiful words inspired me to create this free printable for you (I have it hung in my office):

Since starting my creative business I have definitely noticed a shift in my priorities and that needs to change.  I taught myself to crochet, began creating some awesome stuff and decided I wanted to turn my hobby into a business.  It is something I enjoy and do well.  Once you make the leap to creating a business everything changes!  I can’t tell you how much time I spend reading and learning about creating a successful creative business.  On top of that I have to set goals, market, promote, and connect with others.  I spend much less time actually creating my items than I do selling them.  (I really do love the business side though).  I am so focused on having a successful shop and blog that I forget how much I love crocheting and writing.  From now on I am going to stop and enjoy each step of the journey!

Please remember to stop in over at Melissa’s blog and read her wonderful post (I know you’ll love it)

 

Are you rushing towards the finish line?  Do you wish you were enjoying the journey more?  How can we make sure that the joy of our hobbies doesn’t get lost in the pursuit for success?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!
