funk {and moving away from it}

Yesterday I said I would be sharing a post about blogging to link up with Ashley for blog positivity week.

The truth is I am kind of in a funk and the interwebs are not my favorite place right now. I feel like every time I get on some sort of social media site I am overwhelmed and left with a pit in my stomach. Not even just twitter or the bloggy world but fb as well. I tend to spend more time posting on twitter but as of late I don't really like to. It seems like so many people are in a bad mood or they want to bag on someone else. The same thing happens of fb, complaining about every single little thing. I know I am guilty of it but sometimes it is just too much. I have really tried to change the way I react to things and what I share with everyone.

Lately I feel like I am questioning my etsy shop. I know there is so much more I want to do and so many amazing bloggers have talked about how they don't even make the same product they originally started out with. It takes time, things evolve and I need to remember that. I don't think I am anywhere near where I want my shop to be. So when I see people being so mean and hurtful it makes me just want to say farewell and walk away. I don't want to let some one's bad attitude affect my life and thus I am lefting trying to ignore the mean and focus on the good.

The Good:

I have met some amazing women from blogging and they have been so encouraging. When I wrote this post a few weeks ago I was so touched by the words people wrote to me.

stephanie, annie, me, molly and kristina

I went to blogher last year and met some amazing women.

I have gone way out of my comfort zone and tried things because of this little blog and the encouragment of my readers.

I never thought I would sell my creations at a market. {Let's be honest I never really thought I'd open my own etsy shop} NEVER! But with some amazing encouragment I did and I met some amazing women. {I need to find a new word to replace my constant use of the word amazing.}

I need to focus on the good and not worry about what other people say. Because at the end of the day I have met so many more awesome people than not and I have had so many more wonderful experiences than not.

{I apologize for this post being so all over the place, that is kind of how my head feels these days.}
