It’s been a rough week for me. Tuck started back to school the same day I started something new at work. That made for an awesome Monday that carried into the rest of the week. We got more bad news at the dentist for Tuck, which sent me into a shame spiral to say the least. And the list goes on from there. But…
The sun shined for what seems like the first time in weeks. We got an encouraging note from school in Tuck’s report card. I got to work somewhere new, with people I don’t get to see much, and it was a refreshing change. And I had a couple of friends take the time to talk me off a ledge when I needed it most.
Balance. Thank God for it.
But the highlight of my week, weirdly enough, was seeing someone use one of my products without thought. They weren’t doing it because I could see them or because they couldn’t find their normal product. They just used it. Like they did it every day. It was the best thing this week and is still in my mind days later.
Don’t get me wrong. I know I am making products people can use. Hello – I make stuff I use and then share it. But I kind of assume about 50% of it is because my friends are trying to help me out. So it is really satisfying to see my label on something being used without thought. Doing something I love and helping someone at the same time – that’s the kind of balance I’m looking for. It’s nice to see a sign that I’m on the right track.
