I'm always thinking of a project or idea, but often don't have the time
or energy to prioritize and make things happen (i.e. I've been trying to finish painting a vanity for a month). Well after years of convincing myself of all the reasons to wait, I decided to just go for it. Life will happen. There will always be more commitments than time. As long as I'm raising kids, they will have a myriad of needs, and those needs shouldn't completely drown out my goals and dreams.
In the past year, I've watched as several people my age or younger have died unexpectedly or had their worlds turned upside down. It's really forced me to realize that time waits for no one. The delay for the perfect time may be the only time. So, I took the plunge (and a few cake decorationg classes) and officially opened my home bakery. It looks a little different that what I imagined, but it works best for where I am in life at the moment. The biggest thing is that I took a HUGE step and just went for it. The plan and model can be as fluid as I'd like, because it's all mine.
So far I've had several orders, and I must admit it's a bit stressful. I'm hoping this subsides with more practice.
