There was a time quite a few years ago that I started Treasured Nest. I love the dictionary and what those two words together could mean.
The thing is that I started and then stopped for “Shiny Objects” that caught my eye. I tried several different things and right when I thought I was on the correct path, I went through what I call a dark period (meaning years of chaos, regret, just getting up and breathing each day was all I could do). End of progress.
No worries everyone, I have come out the darkness and things are bright and sparkly now.
TreasuredEssentialOils.com was one of those Shiny Objects and I still love and sell it. My love for it will definitely be sprinkled here. Their daily supplements is what balances my body and there is a reason they gave Frankincense to Jesus but I have been struggling with getting up each morning with that “who am I going to help today?” attitude despite my knowledge of how it has helped me and my family.
I’ve been journaling about a year asking God if there was something else. What was my direction? Is there more I should be doing and then these words where spoken during a devotional time with some of my favorite gals
Now I have to say, it didn’t hit me all at once but the idea of creating has come up over and over again. Like the very next day in an Article by Holley Gerth. I noticed my creativity in my journaling (the doodles in my margins have come back as of late). I then discovered my old journals that spoke about ideas I had for TreasuredNest.com. Then the domain name came up for renewal…do I hold on? Let go? I was reminded how exciting it was to write for a collaborative book project the end of last year.
So I took a dabble and created a Prayer the Word Journal Printable…well that was fun. Still not sure what to do but quite honestly…the mere act of doing it gave me such joy.
So here I am, participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge because I want to be creating and not consuming.
I worked this weekend on Devotional Gratitude Journal that is almost finished and the creativity is making a difference in my life.
So what about you? Have you been in a non-creative slump like I was? What things do you like to create that gives you joy? Gardening? Pottery or painting? Decorating? Writing? Oh this list could go on and on and is personal to you. Have you been doing it lately? I would love the hear from you.
You are a treasure!
