One of my most important blogging tips is...
TO HAVE FUN and when you feel like you need a break from blogging, take all the time you need to rejuvenate yourself.
(note that I said "when" and not "if" because I can assure you, it will happen...and that's okay! I'm prime example of it)
16 Days of a blog break...I am still here.
My heart is so happy that you come here, check in on me, read my latest antics, and love what I have to share with you...
I wish that I could spend the rest of my days traveling, snapping photos of my vintage finds, and taking you along for the ride.
But like you, I have a "real" life too.
NEVER ever think that just because I don't share my "real" life with you here online doesn't mean that everything is "hunky-dory" over here in the LeJeune household!
I hate to break this to you but...I really AM human after all ;)
Sometimes, not everything is as pretty on the outside...
No one wants to see or read about "ugly"...right?
But...we all know that "real" life is not always pretty.
We must stay positive and make the right decision to do what's best for us, no matter how rough the road may be.
The key word = POSITIVE
Before you know it, one little problem...
Can weave it's way into "real" life and create havoc, making everything around you overwhelming to say the least.
Thank God for all of your blessings.
Pack up your troubles and lift up the "mess" to HIM.
Trust me...He will be more than happy to help you out.
In the meantime...
Stay POSITIVE and PRODUCTIVE!
Before you know it, things will start looking brighter (& prettier too)...
And everything will fall into place...
The blessings and the beauty, and unfortunately the havoc and the ugly are ALL present in our "real" life.
Sometimes we just can't see the pretty because we were so overwhelmed about the negative to see the positive.
So in the past 16 Days,
I have learned this above and these things below...
I have learned that as much as I want the best for my child (at the age of 22)...he must make his own decisions...without me.
I have learned that giving (other than receiving) is always the best medicine :)
I have learned that when I am tired, I must take a break ;)
I have learned that cleaning out my studio is a bigger task than I thought it would be!
I have learned that Oreo, (my little girl dog) does indeed have a heart condition that will have to be treated for the rest of her life. It's amazing how we can love these little fur balls so much!
I have learned that in order to keep my mind positive, I need to keep positive company.
I have learned that even though inspiration comes in many forms, I need to stay true to myself.
I have learned (although I really knew it all along) that I have the best husband in the world!!!! :)
I have learned that I cannot visit hundreds of blogs daily. I'd have to quit my day job and sacrifice my (required to function) 10 hours of sleep. I love you all, but...it ain't gonna happen! ;)
I have learned that even though you visit me and do not leave a comment, you still love me anyway :)
and...I've learned much more.
Thanks for letting me have a 16 day blog break!!!
I was in a swap with Tina of Tiny Bear recently. I sent her some lace, trims and trinkets. I just received her box this week so I'll be sharing that soon too!!! (I haven't opened it yet! are you surprised???)
In the midst of all my "learning", I have been traveling too. I hope to share that with you soon.
oh...I have learned that I should pick up the things I love when I see them. This one above I left behind. I gotta go back and get it. I "need" it for my "new" studio! haha
I don't know about you but it's triple digit HOT here in Louisiana.
When I come back home in the evening, all I want to do is shower and plop like a fat potato on the couch. and eat. and sleep.
What have you learned while I was gone?
You gotta tell me what all I missed so I can go over and visit!!!
I missed you guys!!!!!
The Fat potato is signing out for now...
