The perfectionist

I decided to start trying to sell some of the vegetables that I am growing in my garden. One reason being to not let any go to waste. Another so that my entire freezer isn't full of zucchini. Then an added benefit would be to make a little money. Something I have not done in over 6 years. I have dedicated my life to taking care of my family for this phase of my life. My goals everyday is that my husband, children and home are properly loved and cared for. I have not even once regreted that decision. Actually quite the opposite. I have seen the rewards for doing just that. I have been blessed enough to reap some of the rewards of what I have sewn.

Though the idea of making money is always appealing. Money will not ever be choosen over my families well being. I do all I can to pinch pennies where ever I can. I figure a penny saved is as good as a penny earned. My dream though is to have a business that my entire family can do together. No not one that will soley support our family but that will help. So this is the start of that endeavour. As the idea came to me. I found myself looking for approval from others that it was a good idea. Why? Maybe then it wouldn't be only my bad idea??? Who knows. It also took longer for me to get the stand going than what it was supposed to. I think the perfectionist in me was afraid of failing. Not that anything was going to be lost. What is the worst that could happen. No one stop and I bring in my vegetables and freeze them just like I would have had I not put them out.

It just makes me wonder how many times fear keeps us from doing something.
