Earlier this month I was feeling down. I went to a bookstore for some retail therapy and let my thoughts run off to the far corners of my mind to try and find out what might be missing (sometimes dangerous, sometimes rewarding). I found myself feeling unhappy with where I am in life and like I was still waiting for my life to start (spoiler alert: still feeling this way). Every time someone asks me what I am doing now I always say I am still figuring out what I want to do. It feels like my life is on hold while I wait. And while I have some ideas of what I may want to do I am terrified to do anything about it. I am afraid of committing to jobs, careers, projects etc. Anything that might advance me in a direction I am interested in is scary.

There are a number of things to consider if you want to run a successful craft fair. And the number one thing I would like to say about that is: DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!
I put on shorts for the first time in over a year.
Correction – I put on shorts for the first time in over a year and didn’t cry.
I even managed to successfully venture into a store to try on said shorts without getting too upset to buy them. This may seem like no big deal, but trust me – facing yourself in those awful dressing room mirrors is just about the scariest thing that can happen sometimes.
