Usually once a month I set goals. Well I say that, I just went over my blog and seen I'd skipped July and August for 2016, dived into September 2016 with goals and nothing since. I started thinking to myself, do I blog my goals because I feel like I have to, do I even want goals for 2017? My one little word® for 2017 is FOCUS. Then all of a sudden I got this idea. Instead of posting goals every month, I'm going to FOCUS on a monthly blog post based on my one little word®. With that being in mind it could be something I want to focus on more, something I'm currently focusing on and even shifting my focus.
Today I'm putting all my focus onto letting go of what others think. I've mentioned this at the start of the year and maybe you are over it and I absolutely get that. But what I keep seeing on mainly instagram, [favourite social media EVA], is a bunch of amazingly talented ladies letting what others think and say, give them self doubt. These ladies then doubt their ability, their work they share, their life snippets they add in and worst of all they judge themselves. YES I'm guilty of this, YES I've started something, shared it, announced it and then failed and then I worry about what people will think. Hey, at least I tried right? YES I've judged myself many of times, OH so many. YES I've overly focused on someone that doesn't even know and you know what? I bet they have someone they focus on and think is better than them and has it all sorted out. We need to FOCUS on ourselves, on our family and friends, on the community that honestly I absolutely love this crafty community and to stop focusing on the negative or caring what others think. As long as you are happy, or excited or sharing what you love to do, does it matter what others really think? REALLY? What about all the people cheering you on? Shouldn't we be aiming our focus on the wonderful supportive people? I mean don't you think it would be a boring world if we were all the same?
I want you to know that you ARE amazing!
