So let’s talk about Healthy Bites. Let’s talk about how I haven’t promoted them much lately and took a break most of December.
You see, sometimes BIG DREAMS may be put on hold. Or maybe they don’t match up to GOD’s DREAM/PLAN for you. I am talking about me here, yes preaching to myself. And as much as I feel like a failure at not going through fully with Healthy Bites right now, I know in the end it’s for the best. I wanted to be able to do it all, but trying to do so just made me less of wife. So I’m surrendering for now. But surrendering this dream only enables me to focus on our other dream—> TRIATHLON, RACING, being a Sherpa wife to the Kiwi Cotter.
Am I making sense it all here? Ha, let me explain the “WHY and the “WHAT NOW.’’
I’m going to have to put shipping healthy bites on hold for the next few months. We’ve had some things change with our kitchen situation and we are not financially ready to invest more into fixing that situation. But I won’t give up hope, just refocusing. WHY? –> I see this as a sign. I really want to be there for my husband as he trains/races for what may be his last season.
The next six months will unveil GOD’s plan for us. If the Kiwi races well and stays injury free, then he will continue on in the sport. Maybe by then we will have saved enough money to get back into a kitchen for Healthy Bites. And maybe by then I’ll have more time to INVEST. But the reality is that might not happen. And I’m learning to be okay with whatever pans out. I’m open and ready for whatever plan unfolds.
“Where God guides, He will provide.”
The past few weeks I have wrestled with feeling like a failure. I wrestled with feeling like i should be able to do it all. I wrestled with the fact that I can’t do it all. Ouch that’s a lot of negativity, which will get me nowhere. Thankfully I had a good slap in the face and a Love tap from the kiwi and my family to realize this.
My first and foremost big dream will always be supporting my husband. And sometimes that support comes from just being fully present.
So what Am I going to do now? I’m not giving up on Healthy Bites, I’m just shifting focus… for now.
I’ll focus on making another healthy bites e-book
I’ll focus on sharing the flavor of the month and the recipe.
I’ll focus on local orders
I’ll focus on doing a once a month giveaway. Because I want to still share with you when I can.
And I’ll focus on being a Sherpa wife. More recipes, more time with my husband, more time to cheer, and more time to allow myself a what’s up rest when needed.
Thank you all for your continued support. It means more than you’ll ever know .Just wanted to give you an update. Tomorrow I’ll post the first recipe for the January’s Flavor of Month. And I’ll do a giveaway for a dozen (I will make these in my kitchen). So stay tuned for a FLAVOR FRIDAY giveaway.
Whoops there I go again with the corniness.
Do you need a SHIFT in FOCUS?
Cheers to being TRUTHFUL!
