So why start a blog? That is the question I kept asking myself. I am not a writer nor do I desire to be. However over the last few years I have had what I would call a yearning or a hankering, dare I say a vision, to create a website. What I envisioned was a place to show all my varied interior design projects, drawings, furniture restoration, craft projects, etc. Quickly after the yearning would come the question, who would even care? The desire would be cooled and end there… but it would not leave me for long. Then the cycle would begin again. See I’m an idea person. I get different ideas all the time. They come and go without any effort. Some I get excited about and some fade quickly. What I have found over the years is to pay attention to the ones that keep coming back. So here I am, writing a blog. Building a website.
As I was mulling this idea over the one thing I kept thinking of was you, my girls. I wanted to teach you to try, fail and not be afraid to try again because our failure can be just as valuable as our success. Overcoming the fear of failure builds confidence. No matter what it is your working on it is the overcoming of fear that is more important than what your are likely working on in the first place. I wanted you to have the confidence you will need in the future as you face life’s trials. The best way to lead is by example, so here I am writing to you for the whole world to see. My hope is that as you read you can learn from my mistakes and have the courage to pick up and move forward. I love you and I cannot wait to see the amazing women you will grow up to be.
BTW – I totally kept the quote from the website template. It seemed appropriate because you are good company, better than good, the best! And quite honestly, I was to lazy to find a better one. 😉
