I want a Mentor




Build, yep, that's what I'm doing. That's what we all are doing! We are
building our lives. No, I really don't have a model or a personal guru
that I can run up to every time I feel stuck and need some help in the
decisions I'm facing. I've got to figure it out for myself. I've got
guidelines (the bible, morals, ethics), but on the day-to-day little
minor things it's pretty much up to me and the little choices I make.

For instance, I'm re-painting my Family Room. It was a light brown. This
room doesn't get much light. It faces South. When the sun is high in the
sky it doesn't really get into the room. I've been calling it THE CAVE.
The paint I've chosen is very light, almost a white. I like how it's
transforming the room. It's got a Beach House feel to it now. I want
it to be PERFECT! But I don't trust myself and my DECORATOR skills to
pull it off. I want someone to copy, someone to come running up and
TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

But I'm going to have to be BRAVE. I'm going to take it a little slow.
I'm going to have to ignore the voices in this house who don't like
change. And trust that the vision for this room will appear. I'm already
getting some ideas, and scrapping some other ones. It's fun!

How do you mentor yourself?

This is such a great post, Eden.

You go for it! Be brave! You'll have to show us that pretty room once you have it painted.

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
