The last couple of weeks have been interesting. Our house in cleaner than ever, I took the time to organize our laundry room (who does that?!) and I’m in the middle of painting O’s office. While it’s a always a great feeling of accomplishment to have a clean and organized home, for me, it usually means that I’m procrastinating on other projects. It’s been tough. I’ve been in a bit of a funk. I had my hopes up about something that didn’t pan out, and it left me feeling a bit defeated, which I hadn’t anticipated. I know this is something that happens to all of us, but man does it sometimes catch me off guard.
Anyways, after just taking some time to think (without a vacuum in my hand!) I’m feeling so much better- ready to make big things happen. I’m so grateful for these learning experiences. They sometimes do get us down, but man do they make us better and stronger people. I found this quote on Pinterest last week, and immediately made the print above to hang in my office. A little reminder to always seize opportunities but not feel knocked down when things don’t work out.
