maybe the journey is the destination

maybe the journey is the destination

I want to show you these, some of my favorite items from Etsy.

I love being a seller on Etsy partially because I’m so inspired by the other members of this artists community.  It really is  more than a marketplace- it’s a home for creations that may be searching for their voice.  Or artists with a voice, waiting to be heard.  It is easy to get lost in the jumble of awesome bits and pieces. Sometimes I feel like I’m struggling and want to give up.  But if the destination is the journey, then I am doing better than I give myself credit for, because I’m jumping in and putting one foot in front of the other.  And that is all I can ask for right now.

I hope you find peace in your moments today.  And every day.
