These days, if one so chose, hours could be spent perusing social media looking at the perfection of other’s lives. It is so easy to get caught up in how perfect their life looks and how not perfect my life is. But what is the perfect life? What is perfection?
Lately home decor Instagrammers are posting the behind the scenes look at what the rest of their house looks like, save the small corner that they staged for the photo shoot. Nobody can really live like that all the time. And I am so thankful for this dose of reality. Though I don’t agonize over these kind of details, I do find that all this information makes me rather indecisive in my creative and business decisions. I simply cannot keep up with all the latest trends and I will never be that kind of Pinterest crafter. It is exhausting, and for me doesn’t feel authentic.
I am so blessed to be at a place in my life to be free to do what is truly authentic to me and I am confident that there is an audience for it and there are other like minded folks out there who feel like they craft in the shadows and are looking for any ray of light to shine their way. I want to be that light. Time for my girls, traveling with the hubby and sharing my love for crochet and beautiful yarn, to me this is living the dream.
Whatever your definition of living the dream might be, I pray that at some point you are able to experience the joy found in finding and living it.
