My Inspiration

You never really believe your life will change when another life becomes attached to it until it happens. When I got married, my outlook turned from a "me" to a "we" and it motivated me to make certain changes in my life, not without growing pains, but they were made. Two and a half years ago our "we" was expanded and things have certainly not been the same.

When my little boy was born we made decisions that were best for the three of us. When I speak of "my inspiration" I speak of what I'm inspired to do to make sure we're moving in the right direction for our son to have the best we can give him (not monetarily) wherever we are. When I would travel an hour and a half to get to and from work, it was because I was inspired to do what needed to be done, to move to where we need and want to be. When I work on crochet or knit projects and patterns after my son has gone to bed, it's because I'm inspired to develop a business that will allow me more time with my family.

Inspiration comes through motivation to do what is best for those in my life and for myself. Sometimes, when I look at my son and how happy and healthy he is, I can't help but pick up my needles, laptop, hook and yarn, or notebook to chart the course I'd like to see Yarn Obsession take. I know that having my own business, with my own hours, is the only way I can give my son my presence, the best thing I could ever do for him in the long run.
