Keep Sitting Pretty (Even When The Seat is Hard)

Published on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 in , ,

Many of you know that I have started a new blog Keep Sitting Pretty and will soon be selling my own handmade jewelry, what many of you don't know however is how afraid I was to step out on my own.  I've played with the idea of starting my own blog for a few years now (yeah it took me that long), and finally one day I just did it.  Everyone has been showing me lots of love and I truly appreciate it!  My new blog for me represents a promise to myself not to let anything get in the way of my greatness.  I hope you'll make the same promise to yourself.

I had to get out of my own way in order to step out on faith and just do it.  I was talking with Kirsten about my blog and she jokingly said that the tagline to my blog should be, "Keep Sitting Pretty, even when the seat is hard."  We laughed so hard at that statement, but honestly it's the truth!  You have to keep going and keep striving to be great even when life gives you a hard seat to sit in.  If you've never sat in a hard seat, then you'll never be able to appreciate just how comfortable a cushioned seat is.

The hard seat I was dealing with was fear.  I motivate you all so much on a daily basis that I had gotten comfortable doing just that, motivating everyone else but myself.  You might even say I was hiding behind it.  My friends and loved ones were constantly pushing me to sell my jewelry and to start my own blog, but for some reason I was afraid to do it.  I just didn't think I could do it on my own, and I was afraid that people would not support me.  I've come to learn through the process of making jewelry and creating my own blog,  that you have to believe in yourself and the support will come.  I'm already seeing so much support and love for my blog that I am looking forward to sharing my Keep Sitting Pretty creations with you all as well!

I hope you all will check out my blog and my creations that I will be showing a preview of tomorrow!  I look forward to sharing more of this growing process with you!  I also hope that you will step out of fear and into faith.  Work on your dreams, they are sure to come true if you believe they will.

When I saw the title of this post on my blog roll it made me laugh. You're so right. It's so easy to motivate and inspire everyone else that we can easily forget to be confident in ourselves. I've found that writing articles on my website has challenged me to live by what I'm writing. It's been such a great process.

I love this post! I agree with both of you, it is so easy to stop believing and pushing ourselves when our goal is to motivate encourage and uplift others. Moving out of our own way is crucial to our success!
I am excited to buy some pieces of your jewelry. I wish you the best!
