There are a couple little mountains I have been thinking on moving lately. Well, mostly one and it has to do with my Etsy business. I am still in the stage of accepting the fact that I want a change and trying to turn my creative ideas into formulated thoughts and direction; but the fact that I am beginning to feel emotionally ready is a big step. Change is scary. At least it is for me. I am good at reacting to change, kind of with a warrior vibe, but deciding to change isn't my forté. I am a creature of comfort at heart who longs for the next adventure - this usually just leaves me confused and daydreamy.

But now this little voice has been nagging me for quite awhile to improve on this "thing" I blindly hoped would work (and which it did!) and take what I have learned and turn it in to something a bit different. I have no idea how to do that, but I didn't the first time either. This week I was asked by Gabrielle at Design Mom to share my favorite inspirational quote, you can see that here. Maybe meditating on this little quote is what has me thinking about all this. Anyway the quote that I shared is this one by Winston Churchill: Success is going from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. 

Are there any mountains in your life that you are wanting or needing to be moving?

  1. So awesome that you were featured on Design Mom. That's a pretty wonderful quote to pick, too. I don't think I have any tried and true inspirational quotes that I stick to, other than, "This too shall pass." I'm not religious but I really find that quote comforting, maybe more than inspirational. Have a great weekend. xo

    1. Thnaks! I (obviously) love that quote too. I think it used to sound kind of sad and dreary until I understood what it really meant.

  4. Hi Christine, Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my ranunculus photos. :)

    Churchill's quote, like so many of his, puts so succinctly concepts we all struggle with, and with a wonderful dash of humor that lightens the potentially serious subject.

    Wishing you success with moving your mountain.

  7. How funny - I treat change kind of with a warrior vibe as well. I understand that at times it is critical and it keeps me from becoming antsy and self destructive. But there is that brief moment of panic in my eyes when I'm confronted with it

    1. I know exactly what you are saying! I think it's the panic that switches to warrior. xo
