Which way you say? I found direction....

So I've blabbed on a bit recently about my unexpected Christmas and my start to 2013. It's left me not where I thought I would be with the dawn of the new year with big plans for my business and blog. But a little business meeting come catch up this week, has me seeing the ability to start plotting and planning dates again. You might remember my chance meeting with a lovely lady at a party late last year. Well meetings of the minds have been had this week and we are working towards my first shop display in March, giving her enough time and space to clear things after her florist shops busiest day of the year being Valentines Day.

It's exciting, signage has been discussed, position, exposure has also been discussed as well, so I'm left with some extra planning time for which I'm inadvertently grateful for. It's been hard to find traction after an ill start to the year, but this weeks meeting and other goings on have helped things immensely. Sure the timeline of my intended plans for this time of the year are out of whack, but I'm going to get there the goal posts just have to be pushed back a month or two.
My Sweet Little Boy's gift to mummy after our meeting. Gosh that kid has my heart.

So the lesson being learnt here and perhaps a message for other mummas out there trying to forge opportunities and businesses with kids in tow, is this:
Be kind to yourself, if your dream and desire is true, you'll find a way. The way might not always be on your schedule but as long as you keep chasing your dreams with intent to actualise them into something tangible, you'll be fine, you'll get there.

  1. Lovely and wise words there Trudie! I'm finding the same...in my case it's been the kids getting ill, but there's always something when you're at home with little ones. Things take their own sweet time but we'll get there in the end! Glad that you're better, I hope 2013 is a great year for you. Rachel x

    1. It's tricky isn't it? I'm determined though to keep documenting the process though. I know there are so many mums out there wishing they could find a way to have a little something on the side. They often feel torn trying manage it. I'm no superwoman and I often have to undertake things with kids in tow or in spurts when they are content. But you've just got to do what you can, when you can.
