Am I doing things right?

Hello to all I want to start this blog post off with a quote.

“Stay true to yourself, it will be worth it in the end.” 

Rishabh Panwar

I have had to face a reality this last month that has made me stop and reflect. I spent three years in therapy for my mental health issues not because I wanted to but because being in foster care you don't get many choices.

I was told by a therapist once to let my anger be channeled in healthy ways instead of unhealthy coping skills. I had almost forgotten about this until yesterday when my frustration boiled over and I punch the wall. After talking to my husband I checked my phone and saw i had a message for a custom sewing project requests.

(Here is the bandanna)

Once the details where discussed I started to work on the project and begin to calm down. Faster than reading a book would have done for me. So, part of me realized that my artwork and sewing is more than a hobby, even more than a business I'm building for the ground up. It's a way for me to express my emotions in a positive way.

My business was going to help me inspire other people but shockingly it's also inspiring me.

I'm to show three designs that I made along time ago because I thought out selling them but I not sure about it. One of them would only be a print.

Sometimes things don't work because it wasn't the right time. I have tried to write my story at least three times before and it never worked out. I ended hating what I wrote. Or I didn't like the way the story was unfolding.

I decided a couple of months ago I wanted to try for attempt number four. This time I wrote out a chapter list with possible titles. I research took notes and made a outline to guise my writing but to also be flexible if I choose to go on a tangent.

I hope that my journey helps inspire you. To take action and be able to show yourself love, kindness, and patience.
