Wow, I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. It is already March and this is only the second post I have done this year so far.
So how have you been doing with your New Year’s resolutions? I heard or read somewhere that a study was done and that most people that make New Year’s resolutions only stick to it for the first two weeks and then give up. So if you are one of those people don’t feel bad you are not alone. I don’t make New Year’s resolutions anymore, because I know I won’t stick to it for more than a few days. I do however make small goals for myself weekly throughout the year, that way I don’t disappoint myself.
Speaking of goals, back in October 2018, I set a goal for myself to start a Twitch channel and I did. Then in November 2018, I set a goal to stream live on a regular basis with a set time every day, I did that. In Dec. 2018, I reached my goal of 20 followers. Now in March of 2019, I have reached my next goal of 50 followers. This may seem like a slow process to some but for me I am very grateful and quite happy with the progress. My philosophy is quality over quantity. Meaning I would rather have a few great people around me rather than just a lot of people.
This process has been fun and quite rewarding in so many ways. I have met some really wonderful people and made some really good friends. I get so inspired by all the artists, crafters and creators that I have met through my channel and on Twitch itself. As an artist/crafter you find inspiration everywhere and in everything around you, but I never imagined this.
Crafting is my passion and I am so thankful that I am able to indulge myself every day with my passion, plus share it with others as well. So if you would like to come join me any time you are more than welcome. You can also meet the wonderful group of people that I hang out with every day. See you there https://www.twitch.tv/ginstb
Now for more family news – Hubby started a new job and is loving it so far. It is something totally different from anything else that he has ever done so it is still new and exciting for him. He is happy and likes the fact that he works for a very professional company that treats its employees with respect and like real human beings rather than $$$ signs or robots.
Jackson has gotten so big (not fat just solid) he weighs about 18 lbs now. He likes to make a daily appearance on my Twitch stream and everyone love him. Jackson also has a “pride” of 12 female stray cats outside that he keeps a close eye on through the front window and garage door all day. On “dads” day off the boys go outside together (weather permitting) and the girl cats all take turns coming up to Jackson and rubbing up against him and a couple of them even touch noses with him. Poor boy doesn’t know what to do with all that attention. He did run off one stray male that came in the yard one time, we have never seen that cat again.
Takara is doing so good with her every two hour feeding of boiled chicken, she hasn’t gained any weight but she is strong and is herself again. We have noticed though that as she is getting older she has become more vocal and very demanding. She has begun carrying around one of Jackson’s toys (that he never played with) this last year. When she is ready to sleep and we aren’t going to bed she will bring us her “baby” and cry until we acknowledge her, if I tell her to put the baby to bed she will put it in her shoe box or lay it on the blanket on the couch, it is so cute. I never thought that you could train a cat like that. Another cute thing that she does with her “baby” is if she is hungry and we don’t feed her fast enough then she will carry her baby around crying acting like the baby is hungry. LOL She really is something, and we love them both so much for their unique personalities.
Well that is about all I can think of right now as far as catching you up on what is going on around here but I would love to hear from all of you about what you have been doing. Let me know what your goal is for this month, week, or even year. If you have reached a goal and would like to share it, I would love to hear about it, so I can be excited with you. If you need help or encouragement in reaching your goal please let me know because I would like to be there for you.
A smile doesn’t cost anything, but it is worth everything to the receiver.
