I don't know if it's just me, but on my birthdays I tend to reflect on the year past; what I've learned, what I need to work on and what goals to set for the following year. Maybe it's because my birthday is so close to the end of the year as well, and revelations and resolutions are flying through my brain.
Things to be grateful for: I have the love of a great family, and am truly blessed that everyone is in great health. We have a roof over our heads, and my husband has a well paying job that I am lucky enough to be at home for the kids. I am happy that I have chosen to move forward in following my passion for interior design, and hopefully will be able to help other people in planning their designs for their homes in the future. I am happy that I started a blog, to keep me focused on my passion and getting to know other bloggers, and followers along the way.
What I need to work on is my horrible procrastination problem, and self- doubting problem. I let the fear of failing stop me from trying and I need to let that go. After all, I am not getting any younger!
If you've read my post on Nate Berkus' book, Things that Matter, you'll know that I really took this to heart and will really try to focus on things that matter in my life (not just in design), and try ever so hard not to worry about the little things.
In honor of my birthday, I would like to giveaway a gift instead of receive one, to a lucky reader.
I will be giving away one of Nate's book, Things that Matter.
