I wonder what would have happened if I had said “no” to turning my hobby into a business, and instead went back to my career in TV communications when I needed a full-time job in 2008.
Sometimes I picture my soul poking me in some other way and I would have found my path. Eventually you have to give in to your heart.
What is whispering inside of you right now?
“What you focus on expands,” a friend once reminded me when I was going through a hard time. Whether you desperately need a change, need to find a part of yourself again or want to try something new...what is that little voice inside your head saying to you?
Maybe this is your time. Maybe you have had other signs, pokes or reasons to shake things up.
What are you here to do? What do you want or need more of in your life?
For me it was something to call my own that was not about everyone else's needs - cooking, picking up toys, walking the dog and caring for others. A lot of us lose time for our passions as we devote our energy to others. As our responsibilities increase, so many of us stop taking time for ourselves - whether it's exercise, painting, travel, a coffee with friends or even curling up with a book. For me, I desperately needed more creativity in my life. I needed to build something meaningful.
I was lost.
At the time, I letter pressed LIVE YOUR TRUTH on a necklace and wore it as a reminder. In the middle of changing diapers, grocery shopping and cooking, I had forgotten to listen to that little voice inside my head.
During this time, I loved letter pressing words for people and hearing their stories. It was a reminder that we are not alone.
We all get lost.
Whenever I am having one of "those" days (you know, when you just want to hide in your bed, when you feel like throwing in the towel, and wonder what the hell you are doing), I ask myself, “what do I need more of?”
At Suetables, our purpose is to create meaningful reminders of what you hold close to your heart. We would love to letter press your intentions or soul goals on one of our pendants.
