Since I started adding magnesium and a B complex supplement to my daily routine, I’ve had a noticeably higher level of energy and positivity in my life. I have been much more productive too, which is supremely satisfying. Yesterday I made a vat of homemade applesauce, that turned out to be super tasty and refreshing. I also whipped up a pitcher of the apple lemonade that I use to make for Miles when he was a wee little thing. I swept, vacuumed and hung a few new shades in our bedroom. Also, there was laundry, walks and a trip to the playground! I am loving my life a lot more and somehow having more patience for Miles and his toddler antics. Or, maybe it’s all in my head. Who cares really, as long as I feel better and it lasts.
A new line of hats and headbands has been blossoming in my brain too. I’m not sure where they came from, but I love their quirkiness. They are simple to make and make me really happy when I wear them. The hat is called ‘Mon Petit Chapeau’, a mini hat that is tied with string on each side. I envision many wonderful embellishments for maximum cuteness. The headband/choker is an even more mini version of the hat. I don’t know why I love them so much, but I really do. There are several of my friends that I can see wearing them. Maybe I’ll call them ‘Happy Hats’ instead, they do seem to inspire good cheer. In me at least.
On a separate topic, I’ve been trying to decide whether or not I would continue my Etsy store. I don’t feel as if I’m really making that much money from it. It’s fun every once in a while, but at the end of the day, it’s a little more stressful than I’d like. There are a few friends and family that have been supportive, but no real interest other than that. If I was going to really devote the hours a day that are necessary to maintain a successful shop, it would be a different story. I’ve been going back and forth in my head for a couple of months now and still haven’t come to any conclusion. I love creating, but I’ve never really committed myself to it. So, the decision is, do I go whole hog and dedicate myself to building an online business, or do I call it quits and devote myself to being the best mother/wife/me that I can?
