I’ve been absent. I’ve wanted to sit down and write many times, but we’ve been so incredibly busy over the summer with our business, but also with fun activities with our kiddos, and there’s a little thing called sleep that I hear is important to get once in a while!
One of the things that’s been keeping us so busy is an interior decorating job that’s come our way. We’ve done a few interior consults in the past, but not to this magnitude and we’re having so much fun with it. It’s a wonderful family that actually found me on Instagram from a picture of our kitchen remodel. We’re not just consulting on this project, we’re actually shopping and installing as well, and we feel so blessed to be doing this.
The fact that we were asked to tackle this decorating job actually makes this blog post even more poignant, and as always I share the rest of this post as encouragement for you. You see, since I last posted, Mutual of Omaha sent me the link to “My Aha Moment” that I recorded a few weeks ago. I did a 15 minute interview with them and they edited everything I said to 2 minutes. It sounds like I repeated myself a ton, but I love how it really drives the “take the step forward” message that I’m always trying to send you.
Here is the link to watch:
Every word I said is very true. We honestly had no idea that I’d end up selling my refurbished furniture, or that we’d host Vintage Sales in our driveway, or that we would travel to many states giving presentations or selling our wares, or that we would open a little workshop that has now turned into a full blown retail store complete with classes, or that we would be building custom barn doors and tables for people in our community using reclaimed wood from incredible barns and farmhouses from across Wisconsin, or that I would be helping families furnish their dream homes, or be blessed by the incredibly wonderful people we meet on a regular basis.
This journey has certainly had a heart beat of its own, and Lord knows I haven’t always been very compliant in following it, and it has been very tough (very tough) sometimes, but I will never regret it, hard times and all.
A friend shared something with me recently. She said on a trip to Switzerland, she took a tour in the countryside and they saw many homes in the middle of vast valleys. She said it was very humbling because as humans we often feel the pressure to do something extremely significant with our lives, something huge. But it was in that moment that she realized the people living in those homes will live and die in that valley and who is she to think that she’s any better or more capable of changing the world than them? It was in that moment that she realized changing the world doesn’t always have to be something huge, or significant. Sometimes changing the world is simply being the best you can be, doing the next right thing and doing small things with great love.
I could quit and close our business and never blog again and feel confident knowing that I had done the best I could do for this season of my life. And maybe it’s quite possible that none of this has been about me at all. Maybe something I’ve done along the way was simply a catalyst for someone else to do something great with their life?
I know I’ve had the pleasure of touching a few lives in a positive way, and I’ve had a wonderful time doing it. And isn’t that enough?
