Inspiration Through Art

 

Hi everyone,

As I’ve worked on writing content and building this blog over the last few weeks I have to admit there have been quite a few “What am I doing?” moments. I’m sure my fellow moms-bloggers know those moments all too well. You temporarily lose sight of your goal for a split second and doubt begins to creep in, “Can I do this?” you ask yourself “Could this time be better spent elsewhere?” and the big one “Am I even any good at this?”. As moms we find it hard to steal time for ourselves without feeling some level of guilt, feeling that our time, if not spent on our children should be put towards necessary household tasks. It’s even harder to justify this “me time” to yourself when your working towards a goal that doesn’t come with much instant gratification. You write, edit, and rewrite. you take pictures from every angle, and under every light, trying to get that perfect shot. You post it, share it, pin it, and still, you have few subscribers and followers to show for it. Wash, rinse, repeat.

At one time or another, we’ve all been there. For writers, and especially bloggers it’s an inevitable pit stop along our journey. I wish there was a simple way to avoid it, but, truth be told the struggles we face while we pursue our dreams are what make them worth it in the first place. If everything was easy to accomplish overnight we wouldn’t enjoy that warm sense of pride that comes along with a real achievement. It’s the time we invest and the work we put in that make our triumphs just that, triumphant.

I’ve designed a few free printable signs that you can print and frame, stand on your desk, or hang on the wall in your office or workspace. Just a little gift, from me to you. I hope they inspire you on the days when you’ve run out of creativity and uplift you when your feeling tired and worn.

One thought to “Inspiration Through Art”

  1. I definitely relate! I often ask myself if it’s even worth it to keep trying to make money with my shop. I often spend more than I make on supplies due to the new business aspect and trying to get everything needed to stay open and literally open it. After one year in business I am still purchasing items most new business owners would have purchased the first week! But I am still open. Still working every night after the toddler goes to sleep, and still trying to navigate the stay at home, business owner, mom boss, care taker to my 84 year old father in law, wife, and mom to 3 other children that are over the age of 17. My escape is my work at home now. I love what I do. And I keep moving forward with the goal that one day it will actually pay off and help me with all these medical bills for my reason for opening my business in the first place.
    And for whateber it’s worth, I love your blog. I love your writing. I think you are doing a phenomenal job! And this is only the second blog I have ever followed or found that I liked. I have scoured quite a few and just didn’t feel much of a connection with the content or writers so I would just scroll on. Your blog actually makes me want to keep reading until the end of the article and then go looking for more that you wrote! Please keep on keeping on! You’re doing an amazing job!
