You are never gonna do a whole lot unless you are brave enough to try 
 Quote by Dolly Parton

Sounds simple right?

Hardest lesson that I am still trying to learn. I have to say this quote to myself almost everyday when I am out with my lil man. You see I am not a very out going person by any means I am the one at the party/play date that sits there smiling looking ridiculous. I have done this now for 33 years... but last year I read this quote (cue ahhhh haaaa music) and thought why am I so afraid to put myself out there?

I made a choice that day to never again allow myself to be afraid of being brave, I have alot of things to accomplish in my lifetime. So I started to put myself in the most uncomfortable situations that I could imagine, I started hosting a bi weekly play date with parents I didn't even know, I joined the Canadian West Design and Lifestyle Bloggers community and will actually be attending their Spring meet up. (cue heart failure and excitement)  My bravest moment is still to come...... I am working on accomplishing my biggest dare to dream goal, it's gonna take abit but I am gonna do a whole lot with it!

  2. First, I love Bits of Bee's response! What a nice comment :-) And second, I can relate. I get that 'smile' state :-)

    Nancy Marcus pinned a great quote, and it was, 'Be the Type of Person You Want to Meet' - I have been reflecting on it ever since. It puts a lot in perspective for me.

    I'm not sure if I'll be at the Spring meet-up but would so love to be. These women are amazing and incredibly welcoming. You'll be in good hands and I know you'll be glad you went!

  3. Gotta love Dolly, she's got so much wisdom. I can so identify with you in so many ways! It's scary to put yourself out there. Proud your taking such big steps, major bravery. And whenever you figure out how to combine interior Design, Art, and Dance, you let me know, I'm so in! xo
