Redirecting Focus

I have been blogging and sewing for a couple of years now.  Every minute of it has been incredibly enjoyable.  But there was something, something missing.  I couldn't quite put my finger on it until recently.  

The message I had in my heart was not getting out.  There was a general disconnect between my work, my art and my writing.  It wasn't bad - but it wasn't all it could be.  I have been a bit dismayed by the whole thing.

Until recently, when I discovered that disappointment was part of the process of getting me where I am right now.  I wouldn't say that I am sitting onto of the mountain of success, but for one of the few times in my life I am content in what I am doing, what direction this little business adventure is taking.  And the biggest joy out of the whole thing is that it has absolutely nothing to do with me -- it is all about you!

So Four is in a position to change someone's day.  

Do I seriously think a dish towel will change your life - no.  But I hope that the message my art and this blog bring, remind you to hold onto the little pleasures of life.  I hope it reminds you no matter how small those may seem - they can grow with a little bit of nurturing.  

In the next few weeks, I plan on sharing how So FoUr "enjoys everyday".  I am excited to intentionally shift this family's focus by taking the chaotic mess life pulls us down to and changing it into creatively meaningful moments.  For the mama's who dream on having a Proverbs 31 business, I hope to share with you a story of successfully living out that verse.  For the times where it seems to be too much, I hope that you can find a place for a little rest.  This blog and my shop will be honest, intentional, nurturing, empathetic, giving, and focused on making reality a prettier place.  

I can't wait to share the real stories and hope that you all are ready to share some of yours as well.  

This life is meant to be enjoyed!  Let's do that together!
