Yes!!! I have been putting off doing the toddler ties for our little cousin, so of course they have not gotten done, but I've been busy!! Or so I tell myself. I've been busy on the computer, trying to catch up on sleep, cleaning... One of my priorities is learning to sew, it is one of my two 'Big Goals.' But if I never do it, how am I going to learn!? I think that being good at something makes me nervous, so I'm not even putting half the effort into it. Same goes for losing weight. I'm afraid of looking better and calling attention to myself. But, at the same time, I want to look better, and feel better, and be strong and flexible. So I'm going to do it now. I'm not going to let it become never.
I got up super early again thanks to insomnia, and dressed for exercise. Only by the time I was ready to go work out, my body said nope, more sleep. So, happily I went back to bed. I'm still going to work out today, just later. Today, my top priority is sewing. Second is exercise, third is my Clutter Free Challenge. Even if nothing else gets done, if those three things get done, I'll consider today a success!!!
I already weighed, no weight lost, but none gained either, so at least there is that!
So, today I'm going to step out of my fear, take courage to do the things I have been trying to aim to do, and work hard towards my goals. I'm going to make this choice, to step out of my comfort zone every day. Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE sewing. It's soothing. I can get totally lost in the hum of the sewing machine and watching fabric go from just cloth to something I've made, usually for someone I love, right before me. Same with crocheting, I mainly make stuff for myself now with crochet because some people don't appreciate the love and hard work that goes into it. But, that is on them, and I should not let it stop me from making things for myself, or for those who do appreciate it.
I can't say 'nobody', because my husband is an amazing supporter of mine and so are my kiddos, but even if they weren't, I'd keep going. Because while I have many reasons to do these things for them too, I'm doing this for me first. I have to bring myself to do it everyday, and if my whole heart isn't it, that won't happen. So I have to have reasons for myself, or it won't be enough.
Okay, gonna go read my instructions and get to work on all the cutting and prep work I have to do to even get started!! Hope you all have a beautiful day!!
