Today I'm going to be completely honest with you guys. Life has been hard lately. I've felt as though I've been stretched in a million different ways. And those lines that have been stretched so thin are getting ready to break, spring back, and take out anything and everything in its over tensed path.
I've been on the road A LOT lately traveling for shows and my interior design business. And while I'm away from home it seems as though every other avenue in my life begins to crumble. I get behind on emails, important business tasks, house work, personal care such as exercise, blogging.... and the list goes on and on and ON. Then once I get home I feel like I'm playing a game of catch up until its time to hit the road again. I ALWAYS handle all my business task but my personal things are what seem to be swept under the rug until next time. I love to garden and not until this past weekend have I planted a single flower this season. I'm quickly learning I HAVE to take time to do these things.
Not for one second do I want you to think I'm complaining or ungrateful- because I'm not! I'm am beyond blessed with how God has allowed my little business to grow. I'm just sharing some of my struggles, so those who too feel this way know they are not alone. And I truly know I will come to peace with it all once I find a happy balance. Whether you own your own business, are a new mother, job change, newly married, or none of the above, we all go through seasons of change and stress where we must find balance. Unless you're one of those people that I envy that adapt ever so quickly to change. And if you have found the secret to balancing your life please help a girl out.!
Well since we are on the subject of change I'm going to share something that scares the living crap out of me... and why I bought a cabinet that won't even fit in my house. WE'RE MOVING! I almost threw up even typing those two words. No we're not moving tomorrow, next month, or maybe not even next year. But it's definitely in the works, and we are currently searching for the perfect piece of land to build our forever home.
This is something Austin and I have wanted for so long- you know one of those things you lay awake at night pillow talking about. I've drew up house plans, designed, squirreled back furniture at the warehouse, and most of all dreamed. Nothing is set in stone yet. We haven't even found land. And nothing scares me more than sharing this on here. Because there is always that fear of- what if it never happens. What if I open up about this uncertain chapter in my life, only for that chapter to never come. And everyone would be like- what ever happened to Kayla's house she was building... I can only hope and pray that one day it will happen.
But I plan on taking you guys with me every step in this journey sharing the whole process along the way good and bad. And right now the current process is finding land and saving money. Our hopes are to find the piece of land we want, do whatever clearing/prep is needed, then over time begin building. But one thing that is certain is that this beautiful cabinet I bought WILL be part of our new home or I'll be cutting a hole in the ceiling of our current home.. Let's just hope it's the first of those two outcomes. But until that time comes it will sit in my "when we build our house section" at my warehouse. Now you know why I bought a cabinet that won't fit in my house.
I'll keep you guys updated with this new chapter in our lives! And share some better pictures of this cabinet once it's unpacked. As always thank you so much for stopping by today and reading my blog. Feel free to leave me a little comment asking any question about the process you may have. I love hearing from you guys!
