Are we there yet?

You know we're never going to get there don't you? Think about that. I'm going to explain what I mean in just a second. First, I'm going to tell you a little about who I am-who we are. I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I work part-time for other people. I started a business because I have kids going to college in a few years and I'd like for them to be able to graduate without a mountain of debt waiting for them when they are done. I also genuinely enjoy making things, and finding things from other people and companies that I love and passing those products on to others. I figured, why not turn something I enjoy into a way to make a living? Of course, as I tell my children, even when you do something you love, you won't enjoy every aspect of it. You have to work hard. I'm dreaming a new dream, and trying something I never really thought I would do. It requires putting myself "out there" in a way that is uncomfortable and learning a lot of new things. The other Young in TwoYoungDesigns is my daughter. She's only 11, but we're learning together and working together-and I love it.
So, back to the reason I said we're never going to get there. For the first few years after we were married, my husband would always say "we're getting there" if we were working on a project or trying to pay something off-and finally I realized I don't think I'm going to get "there"-wherever "there" is. You always hear that it's about the journey-not the destination. So, I'm making every effort to learn new things, and to enjoy the journey. If I do happen to get there, I'll let you know! Until then, I'll just keep moving.
