One Little Word

Playing catch up ... here's some random pages from my One Little Word album which I managed to bring up-to-date during National Scrapbooking Day.


I'm definitely in a better frame of mind than I was last time I posted. Nothing has changed except my own mindset. I still have no income and Jay is still on furlough. 

Yet, somehow I know it is all going to be okay.

Rather than fuss about things over which I have no control, I'm putting all my effort into building the foundation of my new business. When the world starts up again, I plan to be ready to go!

If any of you have advice on building a website, creating a logo, branding, etc. I'm all ears! I'm in over my head here...

It's great to see you with a lot of YES on the page and in your heart! This pandemic is difficult and scary, but with both you and Jay unemployed it's a lot harder than it should be! Hand in there. I LOVE the dress! :-)

Oh I like your special Mother of the Bride dress - you look gorgeous in it. I agree with Karen's comment, lots of positives, lots of yes. This storm will pass & you'll have rainbows & sunshine again.

So happy to read your positive attitude & your saying yes to getting things up and running with your business! There's so much advice and information out there about logos and branding and how to do things - I know you'll do great.

My advice is as you are getting set up, tell everyone about it so you start getting the word out that you are available to help small businesses, etc. Be prepared if someone asks how much you charge or what you offer ... even if you don't have the perfect website set up yet or are not sure about everything. I've seen lots of people who are working hard to get everything ready first, but that first client might come along any time.

(I wasn't even going to have a business/ministry when the first church asked me to come & teach. I made things up as I went at first & it all worked out along the way.)

Probably the only thing I've managed to improve during this "stay at home" has been the exercise. I still hate it, but I think I'm back in to the habit. I've been active most of my life and knew I really needed to get back to it. Still, I wish I had more to show for this time at home. I still need to get rid of a lot of stuff. I have done very little scrapbooking. I have done a bit of stitching, but I think it's the darn puzzles that are eating up so much time!! At least you are on your way with a business plan and you have finished this journal to show for your time in a more constructive way.

You are so right about changing the mindset - it does work wonders! It's a good decision not to fuss about things we don't have control over (even though we still worry). You have been busy with your scrapbooking - those pages are beautiful. I'm sure that focusing on building your own business helps a lot. Hang in there!

Yay for your optimistic outlook, that can make all the difference. I think I need a chore chart (oh make that goal tracker, sounds more grown-up) like yours, because the days are whizzing by quicker and it seems like I am less productive instead of more.
