I’m having a baby today!!!

We’re heading to the hospital right now! I’ve already pre-scheduled tomorrow’s post, but depending on how everything goes, there might be a delay in the sneak peeks for a few days.  I’ll be back as soon as I’m feeling good enough to sit up to my computer! Prayers for a good delivery would be much appreciated!  Have a wonderful day! XOXO, Crystal

*For today’s comment, I want to hear your thoughts on the quote below…

My thoughts: This quote changed the way I thought about failure. Too often we think of it as a bad thing & use it as a “sign” that it’s time to give up. When, in reality, it can be the very best thing that happens to us! When used as a tool, failure can help build humility, patience, & perseverance…all of which are VERY good characteristics to develop. It also helps us to think out of the box & create something far better than we would’ve had we succeeded in the first place. There are so many amazing examples in our history of people who went from failure to failure without giving up & the results were miraculous. I’d love to focus more on these examples in July, as part of the monthly challenge. Would this be of interest to you? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the topic! Leave me a comment below…

My thoughts: This quote makes me stop & think about what I’m letting stand in my way. What am I holding onto that I’m not willing to give up for something better?

My thoughts: This quote really struck a chord with me. I did not major in graphic design, let alone take a single art or graphic design class in college. I pretty much taught myself everything I know after I was a young mom with three kids. It was the passion I had for color & design that drove me to learn through online tutorials & lots of practice.  There have been so many times I’ve been ready to give up because I doubted myself & my abilities. Sometimes I would worry that other people would think I was a “fake” because I didn’t have a degree in graphic design. The funny thing was, the more people praised me, or the more jobs I got in the scrapbook industry, the more I would start to doubt myself & want to give up. The mind is a funny thing, isn’t it? That’s why I love this quote! When I first read it, it hit me that I was truly my own worst enemy when it came to doing what I love. I knew I had to start believing in myself in order to move forward. No amount of outside praise or criticism could help or hurt me…it had to come from within. I’m not saying I’m 100% positive with myself all the time now…far from it. But whenever that negative self-talk starts to creep in, I read this quote…and it helps…a LOT.

My thoughts: I love April’s quote because it is the key to change. It doesn’t matter how much we know if we don’t apply that knowledge. And it doesn’t matter how willing we might be if we never act. The only way we can improve & move forward in our lives is to DO! Let’s make 2015 a year of “DOING”!
