I am a very modest person when it comes to bragging on myself. Self critical is something that I have issues with. I am super hard on myself. I have no problem bragging on my husband, our children, the kids in my after school class, how amazing our church is, how great the fire department is but this week we were suppose to write about someone being proud of us.
It was kind of ironic that my husband was just telling me how proud he is of me. Once in my life I was a wild child who only cared about herself and now, my family comes before me always. For years I have wanted to stop working at someone else's job and be avaliable to my family but what could I possibly do to make that happen.
After looking into almost every direct sales company I could get my hands on and deciding that none of them were quite what I was looking for, I decided to give up on my dream and just focus on my family. In that process is where my husband first started becoming proud of me. I made a tutu for my niece, I made her and our daughters hairbows, I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas, I took cake decorating classes, I did things that I thought were fun.
I noticed that there is a huge market for baby and children's boutique items and thought "Well just maybe". I started looking at Etsy and reading about their policies, on how to promote and generate traffic to my Etsy site.
I have signed up for my own Etsy store online. I have not posted anything as of yet but this weekend I am launching. My husband tells me he is proud of me for not giving up on myself and getting back on the horse again after falling off. My family means the world to me and if being able to support them and be there for them means I have to step out of my comfort zone, then I will be uncomfortable for a while.
I told you I have an awesome husband.
