I’ve been trying to get a little more person on here, so you can really know me. What better way than to share a few secrets, right? I know sharing secrets can be a bit scary, I mean really! I’m about to tell you, but we’re friends, right? Can you keep a secret?
Hit the Mark
Most of you don’t know, but I grew up in a really cruel place.
If you weren’t from this town, then you weren’t welcome (sometimes even if you were).
Ever been a place like that?
I get you, and know exactly how hard it can be.
So I never had many friends growing up, and people went out of their way to try and make me cower for a good laugh (they thought I had no clue. Seriously? Haha).
That is why I love it here!
We all have a common goal.
To have fun and enjoy life!
I love the simple and less is more.
I never expect anyone to ever be anyone but their true self, and respect everyone else.
I was having a conversation with Sarah a few days ago, and we were talking about introverts.
Sometimes it can be so hard to see who is an introvert online.
Sometimes someone is really talkative, so you assume they are an extrovert cause it seems so effortless for them. 🤣
My true personality is introvert, but sometimes when I get a bunch of energy.
Well let’s just say my family knows to clear the way.
When talking with Sarah, she made a fair point.
We are all introverts.
We would all rather stay inside crafting, than go out and be around everyone.
That is so true!
Even though I do a lot of traveling, it’s usually only one or maybe two other people around me.
So I think we can all agree that most of us if not all of us are introverts.
And take comfort that we all understand each other on that level.
Why do you?
Everywhere I look I have someone asking me why.
Why do you knit and crochet?
Why do you blog?
Why do you own businesses?
Most people say, because they love it.
Well yes, I think we all love what we do.
So I always want to know the true reason why.
Why am I doing something?
I actually surprise myself a lot of the time.
It usually has not a thing to do with me, but with someone else for some other reason.
I’m just doing it my own way.
I dream of living on the cost and a few other details you might learn of later.
I dream of going out of the US, and helping where it’s needed because we are so incredibly spoiled here.
And there are some more, but I’ll leave it at that to respect others privacy.
Have you ever asked yourself why?
Why you crochet?
Why you knit?
Why you do ____?
If you keep asking yourself why even after getting the answer, you’ll probably get your true answer.
And it probably won’t sound like everyone else’s.
Why not show yourself?
Well showing myself is more than showing a picture of myself.
It’s showing you who I really am.
I’ll tell ya straight out.
I’m not good at it.
I’ve always felt pushed down from everyone around me and well, that’s that.
When I do get brave enough though, I am well aware that I am loud.
I am quirky.
I am strange.
And all eyes tend to land right on me for it haha 😆 (Yeah, I know. You’d probably LOVE to see that ha)
Otherwise, you get my boring side.
It’s fun making mistakes.
You know when your traveling and you end up way off corse?
Those are the times I have the most fun!
It’s okay to make mistakes.
Love or Hate ’em?
I have a love/hate relationship with newsletters.
I am truly terrified to email mass amounts of people.
Because if I mess up then I’ll have loads of people emailing me all mad…
But the thing is, newsletters can be really awesome!
I love the idea of give newsletter subscribers exclusive content.
They are usually the most loyal followers.
So it’s only right that they get the most, and the only reason I feel comfortable with that, is because it costs you nothing.
Granted, I’m still trying to find the perfect service for me and for you.
So ya might see me change a few times.
Hopefully, it won’t be noticeable.
Hopefully you learned a thing or two about me.
If you want to learn even more, make sure to check out The Rundown.
You’ll probably find a few more secrets over there!
Save this post for later with the buttons below.
Bonus! Your friends and family get all the details too.
I’ve told you a few secrets about me.
Are you brave enough to let Ashies in on a few of your own?
See ya in the comments!
And before I completely forget, I know sometimes you need some extra help with something. Well since I'm really busy, it can take me a day or 2 before I can get back to you. The thing is, I feel REALLY bad about that. So I created the Ultimate Knit and Crochet Facebook group. It's got some really awesome women that love to share their projects, help out and get inspired from your cool adventures. But if you'd rather wait, you can always DM me on Insta for a lil extra help. :) All good?
I'm probably leaving something out. I'm only human afterall. Contribute to this information in the comments below!
