Hey there! Happy Tuesday! The weekend was great, but I didn’t post yesterday, because I actually got work done on one postcard pack! I got them all designed, and a mockup printed 🙂 Once I can settle on some photos of the cards and the journals I’ll be launching the Etsy shop! I’M SO EXCITED! I’ll probably do a countdown or something fancy on the RWP Instagram account so if you aren’t following along there I will post a link at the end of this post to check it out!
While there is all this excitement, and actual productivity being done, I have been thinking a lot about where I want this space to go, and what content I want to be posting about. My I have two Instagram accounts – @maggiegravier and @roamingwithpurpose – one is my personal account that I have been using for health and nutrition, and the RWP account is for adventures and the Easy shop. It has been easier for me to keep them separate, but I would like for this to be a place where they can come together! I will be incorporating a page for recipes of some of my favorite good-for-me things, and maybe even making some YouTube videos of them! I thought about merging them, but if the idea is that RWP will become a business I’m not sure if that would be a great idea. We’ll see, maybe something in the universe will tell me exactly what I should be doing 🙂
I’m rambling again! I assure you I have things in the works. With this season change I’ve had no motivation to get anything done once I’m home from work. I’m hoping to get things in order soon so I have a routine. I’m usually most motivated to work on my own stuff when I’m at my desk durning the day, which is the last place I should be working on it….. I do have a running list of posts to knock out, but I do also enjoy these journal-style posts so I’m thinking two posts a week! One like this, and one that is more structured and helpful to some of you out there in the world.
Also, I will be 30 in a few months, and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I’m not upset to be entering my 30s, but am not sure how I feel about leaving my 20s. I hadn’t ever thought much about where I thought I would be at this point in my life, but I’m not upset about where I am finding myself. I like to think I’m pretty good at not comparing myself to others, and there’s the whole “the grass is greener” thing, and I’m happy with my life. There will always be things that I wish I could change, and can change, and probably will change, and I can pick and choose what who and what and where I want my life! All good things!
These are the things in my brain right now. There’s equal parts chaos and a calm that comes from a daily dose of exercise, putting better things in my body, and a general feeling of being comfortable and confident with who I am. I am able to let myself feel things, process them, and have the tools to pull myself out of it. Basically I’m becoming my own super hero, no biggie.
Last thought of the day – I can’t stop thinking about rock climbing. I haven’t done it in a long time, but I Can’t. Stop. Thinking. About. It. I’m really not good, I’m not experienced, and I have a lot to learn. I really think this is going to be a big part of my life coming up, and I’m excited about it! The thing is, neither of the local climbing gyms are cheap, and Maggie is pretty tight on money. So, I’m considering picking up additional freelance work – photography/content/social media/etc to make some extra cash until RWP has a steady income. I have to make this happen, and I’m brainstorming ways to make it a reality! I’m also working on where in my life I can cut back on expenses. Walking more places, and having a shorter commute to work will help in the long run, but at this point it’s just pennies and dollars here and there.
So many things in my brain!
