I found this free printable designed by Kristen from Hello Monday Design which perfectly fits my situation right now. I mentioned before that I’ve been keeping really busy with my business, which is why I haven’t been able to post as much as I used to. As stressful as it is and as bad as I feel that I don’t have as much free time to blog, I feel so incredibly lucky that I’m able to pursue my passion and do what I love. It’s definitely a rare thing, which my boyfriend likes to remind me during the tough times. So even when I’m having a bad day or a particularly crazy week (which this week has definitely been), I still look forward to each and every day. And that even includes Monday!
Yesterday, I had one of the toughest, most challenging, and most illuminating days ever. I was simply at my breaking point. As many of you know, I have my own small business making nut butter that I run with the help of my boyfriend. But because he has another full-time job, I of course have the responsibility of handling all the physical production and filling orders. Everything was going smoothly until our equipment (which we just bought a month ago, mind you) decided to break all of a sudden. I guess the building stress had gotten to me, because I basically had an emotional meltdown. How did I get through it?

How lovely is this Alfred Tennyson quote hand lettering by Lisa Congdon? I always find that quotes like these speak to people differently, carrying a different meaning to all of us and touching us in different ways. For me, I see it as meaning hope and promise for the future. Every challenge I face, every good day and bad day I live, and every memory I make becomes etched into me. It would be silly to pretend I don’t cry or get sad, but what really keeps me going is this hope and overwhelming sense of joy.
