Reconnecting With Yourself


    I continue to believe that a big part of starting over is reconnecting with yourself. It is important to remind yourself things you used to find passion in. I'm the happiest when I am feeling truly authentic. Selling has been a part of my soul for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, it continues to be an area that I "take a break from" or compromise on when it comes to giving something up.  It's essential to not feel shame about having things in your life that bring you peace.  I took time this weekend to pick out some cute packaging from the Dollar Tree to wrap one of my latest sales in.  As you can see, I have little cactus stickers, adorable rainbow paper, and to die for mini kitty cat card in this picture. I'm hoping that my buyer will smile when they open their package and that this bit of color will add sunshine to their day. 

    Something about myself that I have observed is that it is really on the day before I go back to work that I get truly productive.  It is like a countdown to when I will have no more time in my week left. Therefore, in honor of this observation, today I did a lot of different things at home. In addition to packaging up my order, I also got vegetable chili into the crockpot, vacuumed the floor, cleaned Mouse's (the cat) eating area,  painted my nails, took product photos, thrifted, and went to counseling. Hopefully, I will sleep well tonight! 

This is the picture of one of my swim dresses by Torrid (Size 3 X) that I will be listing in my Ebay shop. For anyone that is interested, you can find my shop by clicking on ===> Bluffton House . I do not always have a lot listed but I am going to make more of an effort to list clothing on a regular basis. I love boho styles, plus sizes, and soft materials! I take great care to make sure everything I sell is in New-Very Good condition. And all items are from a non smoking home. 

That's all I have for tonight! I am sending you so much inspiration to find your peace and reconnect with it. it is never too late to start over, darling.

A Day For Baking Bread

    Today, was a VERY rainy day.  One of those days where you want to eat warm food and not stray far from your bed. My boyfriend and I listened to church online, as it continued to rain outside. The pastor talked about Joy VS. Happiness . Explaining, that these two words have very different meanings. Hundreds of thousands of people every year search the word "happiness." So many (including myself), are searching for relief from this economy, answers to questions, and their identities that they are convinced they have lost. I've seen a multitude of How To Find  Happiness & Self Fulfillment books at the thrift store. In full transparency, I'm sure some of these books have made it into my buggy.  For some reason, these books that are supposed to give these life altering answers always get donated back. As I listened to the sermon, I learned that happiness is a feeling created from positive events happening around us. While joy, despite what is going on, is created

What To Do When You Can't Find Balance In Your Life

  Anyone else feel like they are struggling to get through each and every day?  You may be familiar with burn out spreading through your workplace like a wildfire.  Everyone looks like they are having an out of body experience from the level of stress they are experiencing, right? I know one of the biggest questions running through my mind right now is, what should I do to balance my life in the midst of the chaos. Todays answer: declutter my closet and donate 5 full trash bags of clothes (amongst other items).  For some reason, cleaning either my closet or car makes me feel like my life is semi together. The feeling never lasts, but it is a good short term stress relieving solution.  I thought in this blog I could make a list of things that I do to balance my life, in hopes that it may help someone that is starting over or looking for alternative ideas for handling stress.  Organizing/Donating - This topic I know I just mentioned. However, I want to emphasize how important it is to j
