"Why am I doing what I'm doing?"
So this will maybe be kinda long-winded...and maybe a bit angsty (is that a word?)...but I've been wondering lately what I'm really doing with, and in relation to, my business and blog. I've been floundering a bit with it all...Feeling overwhelmed for no really good reason.
I have all these ideas and projects swimming around in my head...and I'm not sure how to organize my thoughts and activities.
And today I could finally put into the words the feelings I was having:
There are a lot of people out there doing what I do...and they're doing it better than I am.
Yeah. I know. Such a HUGE revelation, right.
Pardon my sarcasm.
I've been trying to figure out why I'm doing what I'm doing. And being able to pinpoint the feelings I've been having has made me question a few things.
Like: "Is what I'm doing useful?" "Is it needed or necessary?" "Does it matter if it is...or isn't?"
And I can honestly say that I don't really know the answers to those questions yet...
I do know that I like being creative...I like being a mom...I like being a wife...I like to crochet, and blog, and, sew, and doing fun things with my kids...I like being me...
And being true my ever-changing self is something I need to continue to work on.
So...here are a couple of quotes that have been helping see my potential and want to work harder to figure out why I do what I do.
