It's never too late to be who you might have been.

Time for this chick to fledge

For years it seems I have longed to be a crafter, an artist, an antique dealer, or something of that combination.  I have hoped for it, I have stashed away supplies, made fits and starts, and then keep putting it off until I can be "ready" or have my house "ready" or have enough money, etc etc.  I see all the successful people out there and think that the world doesn't need another one.  But I still want it. 

So, I was just reading MORE of these awesome blogs about worlds that I want to belong to, and decided, what the heck, I will just start my blog, now, and quit waiting for things to be right or my house to be clean and ready.  Just start here where I am. 

I figure, I will try to do one thing every day to move towards this goal, to clear off one spot of clutter or do one thing that I have been procrastinating about and just maybe I can sit down and do one of those awesome crafts, clean those walls in my future craft room, paint those walls, start uncovering and unpacking all the awesome little things I have been packing away.  Maybe little by little I can chip off the stone that covers my heart and uncover that sculpture of the person that I am meant to be. 

Didn't all you awesome bloggers, crafters, home decorators, start someplace?  It's time for me to recognize my talents, to see what I have done already, to be proud of myself and to quit hiding.  It's time to reach out and make new friends.  To believe in who God made me to be, to quit putting it off because I am getting too old for that!

  1. I found you! :) Thanks for sending me that message on Facebook about jumping back into blogging, here, too .... and wow, does this post ever speak to my heart, Christy!! I've done all of the same things in hopes that everything would be 'just right', and my 'someday' would finally come!! I have to say, though, seeing all the successful people out there, well, that tends to bring depression as well, and, walking through some family problems lately sure hasn't helped much, either ... it has basically stopped me in my tracks, but reading this is very encouraging to me! So many times I've felt alone on my little 'island' ... the one I've created to hide on because of fear, and anxiety! Yes, I need to 'break out' - send up a 'distress signal', look up, quit putting it off, as you said, and trust in who God made me to be, too!!

    Sorry I went on there, but I needed this word today, my friend! It's been a rough couple of years for our family, and, yes, I've got lots of de-cluttering, and unpacking to do, too ... besides, I'm not getting any younger, either!

    So looking forward to staying in touch here and seeing more of the "sculpture of the person that you were meant to be"!! I haven't been over here all that much, and need to get back to sharing here again, too! Also am sending you a 'wordy' message on Facebook about Xanga and this bloggy thing! :) Blessings to you!!
