What I learned in 2014...

This last year has been very good. It was the year I officially decided to turn my passion into a business and it has flourished already so much. It has taught me how to be disciplined in my life. I lack discipline and I guess being an only child, that has its downfalls with that. But running a business has forced me to learn how to run my day. I am a wife, a business and a mother to my pups (believe me, they are high maintenance, not by choice), but I have learned how to balance spending time running my business along with cooking, cleaning, spending time with my husband and doing the little things I enjoy like working out and taking my dogs to the park and cooking or baking new healthy meals. It has been a challenge for me mostly because I procrastinate and I am more a free spirited type person. This has allowed me to actually manage my days and be on a schedule. OH and not to mention I am black and with being black, I have the hair and if you don't know what that means, that means 7-8 hrs every two weeks on my hair and thats if I decide to straighten it, if I don't straighten it then that 4 hrs once a week plus anther hr a day to work on it. Please don't tell me just shave my hair cause honestly who wants to be a bald woman by choice. It ain't me! But to continue on, I have grown a lot in being discipled also spiritually, I have to always remind myself, this business is not what matters. It is my walk with Christ. He can make or break my business and whichever He chooses, I will still praise His great name. That has helped me too, each day to remember that this business, this marriage and this life is all about Christ and I can choose to serve myself in this area or choose to serve Jesus and I am faced everyday with this battle but when I choose to serve Christ with my business and my marriage and my life. The outcome and the joy of it is what keeps me going :)
