School is about to start, for me and the kids both. Student teaching is about to begin too. I craft also. And I can do it all well. But I have to sleep at some point, lol.
I've learned in recent weeks that I'm not good at being the Popular, Cool girl. I never was. That's why Studio Calico wasn't a good fit for me anymore. I don't have flair, and I don't want to spend all my spare time trying hard to impress you. It feels fake. And I've got other plans. I have a life outside the computer.
I just need to remember, I think we all do, that you need to choose what's best for you, what fits YOU and your lifestyle best, and not worry about what everyone else is doing. Because, truth be told, nobody is doing it all, even if they lead you to believe so on the internet.
Disney commercials get me every time. I saw one that other day that said something about only having 850 or 950 Saturday's with your kids before they graduate from high school (Gosh, I need to look that up. A difference of 100 is quite significant. Good grief). I'd much rather make sure all of those count with my family before my girls have the choice to leave and never come back, ha!, than try to impress someone who in the end doesn't really give a hoot about me personally. It's been a humbling lesson, but one I needed to learn.
I'm still here, and I'm still creating. I still have projects to share. But I don't need to be standing in front like I thought I did, for you to see me.
