The demands of life

I have been dealing with the demands of life over the past few months and working on reworking my business which has become a huge part of my life.

Life can sometimes be more demanding than we expect and I just keep trying to remember that we are never given more than we can handle. I personally like to bite off more than I can chew at times. However I seem to thrive at times.

My business Jamleewicks have become almost strictly a decal business and it has allowed me to focus more on just one aspect and not the millions of crafts that I do. In a way I miss this because I haven’t taken the time to sew, crochet, or knitt in many months but I have also started to grow my business and I am so happy with that. I will hopefully find the time in the near future to work on some of the other things too.

Life itself has just been moving so fast I am soon going to have my daughter in school and some days I love the idea because she is so happy; I also will have time to myself. On other days I am so sad because I have gotten used to having her around all the time. I know it is for the best and I will make it thru.

I have tried time and time again to develop a routine for life and my business however it just never seems to work out. So here is what I have decided: it is out of my control so I get up in the mornings and do a bit of house work and the regular have breakfasts etc. then I start working on what ever else I need to do at the moment. I have started having a routine by preparing everything I can when I have the time to shorten the time it takes to perform tasks. Such as I print business cards and thank you cards when I have time and I address envelopes so that when I get an order for a decal the only thing I need to do is cut the decal, print the receipt and put everything in the packaging. This is saving a lot of time for me and I an learning to enjoy the times that I do have.

On this journey I have learned a lot and the not important thing is that I need to try to enjoy my life and just go with things instead of being upset things aren’t going how I hoped and not having time for them. I have even learned that with all of the health issues I have had knowing when I am pushing myself too hard never seems to help.

I will be back soon to show some of the great new designs I have been working on for JAMLEEWicks because I very much enjoy the life I have and I am learning how to make it work for me.



About Jamleewicks

I am a recently sahm of an independent 5yo and working toward buidling my new business Jamleewicks. In October 2015 I was put out of work due to some pretty ugly migraines that were caused by stress and tension. Since then I have been learning to be a house wife, stay at home mom, and a business owner.
