Choosing Your Own Life Roadmap

Being true to what is important to you is what matters. I’m making my own roadmap. Sure, there are bumps and unexpected potholes but I see them as challenges I can learn from.

On My Needles

I’ve made little progress on my daughter’s scarf lately.

Sneaky moments of knitting have been few and far between this week!

After scouring Pinterest for inspiration, *cough* (procrastinating), I’m still no closer to choosing what is next on my needles.

There is so much choice; it can be hard to make a decision.

How do you decide?

I’ve been thinking about how sometimes it is difficult to stick to the path in life you want to follow.

Being true to what is important to you is what matters.

The above quote resonated with me.

Sure, there are bumps and unexpected potholes, but I see them as challenges I can learn from.
