2019 is a little bit exciting for me. After 12 years of having small children at home, this year my youngest will start 3 year old kindy which will open up one (glorious) day all to myself! My house has always been filled with noise, and the introvert in me is rubbing her hands in glee with the potential silence that will fall on the house.
I am finding myself at a crossroads with Lava and Stone. I had to explain recently to a friend what L&S was, and I had a tough time doing it….which is a little alarming since it’s mine 🤣. I was like “Well, it’s kind of oils, it’s kind of jewellery, it’s kind of a micro blog and it’s kind of just me rattling on”. It’s “kind of” a lot of things.
So the question for me is, with my one precious day a week, how will I invest it? What do I want? I never started Lava and Stone with any real financial plan – it was purely for my own mental health. I was having having my own challenges, and I needed something outside of the home to anchor myself to. I needed a life….or even a purpose…. outside of the home. It was either starting Lava and Stone or rocking in a corner for the next few years. I spent $200 on some beautiful natural stone, opened an Etsy store and the rest is history.
So I don’t know what I’m doing. But I am excited to be on the journey. Anyone else with their youngest starting school this year and thinking about what that might mean for you? Maybe you might start studying again? Or take up painting? Or starting a blog? Let’s journey together.
