there is everything in my mind to a point where i wonder when i will breathe again. it’s an exciting time with risk around every corner, but one where i am going to be pushing myself to open up, to get closer to everything that gives me bliss..
i got in. the show i had been hoping for – i got in. two solid days of bittersweet at the convention center for crafty wonderland – 200 local artisans in the prime of the holiday season. which means a LOAD of work, prep time, and initial investment. then, as soon as i felt my blood pressure rise and my worries start to collect, one of my amazing friends volunteered to pay the expensive table fee. i nearly wept.
there is still so much more. buy more chocolate. packaging. marketing. merchandising. money i don’t have with my recent cliff dive. it’s ironic that the minute my world changed that it became even busier. even crazier. even more of a test. but i have to embrace it, breathe deeper than i’ve ever breathed before.
