My Inspiration

by Sedie of Yarn Obsession

You never really believe your life will change when another life becomes attached to it until it happens. When I got married, my outlook turned from a "me" to a "we" and it motivated me to make certain changes in my life. Not without growing pains, but they were made. Two years ago our "we" was expanded and things have certainly not been the same.

When my little boy was born we made decisions that were best for the three of us and continue to do so every day. When I speak of "my inspiration" I speak of what I'm inspired to do to make sure we're moving in the right direction for my son to have the best we can give him (I'm not speaking monetarily here) wherever we are. When I travel an hour and a half to get to and from work, it's because I'm inspired to do what needs to be done now, to move to where we need and want to be. When I work on crochet or knit projects on the train, or after my son has gone to bed, it's because I'm inspired to develop a business that will allow me more time at home with my family and less on the train to work.

Inspiration comes through motivation to do what is best for those in my life and myself. Sometimes, when I look at my son and how happy and healthy he is, I can't help but pick up my needles or my laptop or my hooks and yarn to chart the course I'd like to see Yarn Obsession take. I know that having my own business, with my own hours, is the only way I can give my son my presence, the best thing I could ever do for him in the long run.
