Moving right along

In the last few weeks of my Etsy shop career, things have been all abuzz.  Packing the orders and giving great deals to everyone who stops by has been such fun.    As a life long retail person, I have to admit that selling is fun!!

And then...... as always with perfect timing ....  I received this re-minder today in my email box from one of my most favored guides - Abraham-Hicks:

If your dominant intent is to feel joy while you are doing the work, your triad of intentions—freedom, growth and joy—will come quickly and easily into alignment. See your "career" as one of creating a joyful life experience. You are not a creator of things or a regurgitator of what someone else has created or a gatherer of stuff. You are a creator, and the subject of your creation is your joyful life experience. That is your mission. That is your quest. That is why you are here.

Such a great reminder!!  Because I am having so much fun and joy with events taking place right now, more of it just keeps coming along!  Doesn't that just make ya smile?

Still not sure what happens after Etsy - but certainly not worrying about it either. I'm just loving my health, my good days, my family, my friends and all my connections.  I am so blessed!
