The Go-Getters.

Generally, I would include myself in the above category but the last couple of weeks I seem to have lost my mojo. I don't know if it's a holiday hangover, the fact I just moved two states away, I'm discontinuing my most popular products - or maybe just a little bit of both. Whatever it is, I haven't been in that up and at 'em, work until you can't keep your eyes open anymore, mentality. I've been relaxing like a college student and it has been fabulous. But, deep down I know I need to snap out of it and get things back to normal.

I know that sometimes it's OKAY to stop and take a step away, but let me remind you that I stepped away before Christmas to enjoy time with loved ones. I have had lots of time away. For some reason I just can't turn it back on. I feel an immense sense of pressure, that is purely self-inflicted, but there nonetheless. I have bills to pay. New products to create. Deadlines to meet. 

So, any tips you have for getting out of a slump and back to kicking ass are welcome! ;)

  • I make a list! I go back over my website and see what I want to improve (that always generates a list!) sometimes it is something new and sometimes refreshing an older idea or theme. Or I jump on Pinterest and get lost for a bit, that always inspires me! I hope you are feeling reenergized about your work soon. I check for new posts all the time, your work is great and what you’ve built an inspiration!

  • My new year started out with a bang… In the wrong way. My family had an event happen new years night that is going to effect the whole family for some time. Soooo it is really hard to get back into the groove of things. Hoping with prayer and patience that we all find our own way to snap out of it and get back to accomplishing our dreams and goals. Bless you all!

  • First of all, I just found your shop and I’m absolutely in love with everything! You’ve pretty much encapsulated my personality in a stationary shop, and I kind of want to be your best friend now.

    Also, I could have wrote this post myself today. Just before the holidays, I left my job to follow my husband’s career to a new state. I’ve always been extremely driven, but after taking time off to see family I’m having a really hard time getting back into a groove. It’s been difficult to finding my footing in a new place and to figure out where I want my career to go now.

    I don’t have any awesome bits of advice, but maybe it’s a little encouraging for you to know that someone else knows where you’re at right now. I know we’re both going to pull through, and we’re going to have tons of energy and inspiration on the other side of this slump.
