PS:110 – Need to feel inspired.

Lately, I don’t feel inspired. I feel pretty low. Some insanely difficult weeks ranging from personal to business, kiddo health, lack of sleep – you name it. It’s been difficult, and I get bursts of inspiration, but I just don’t have that “Conquer the world!” feel. I feel like I can’t even take a nap right.

One thing that inspires me a little is a vlogger named Casey Neistat, he recently talked on his vlog about following your dreams, not too shabby of a vlog, take a peek (some mild language, easily offended tread lightly):

This guy has some things I like, like drones. I was into it then he got into it, and it makes me go “WOW!” when he flies it around NYC! Impressive.

I want more positive in my life. More push that says “You can!” not “You can’t!” – I want that drive that says “You’ve made it, keep making it, grow it, build it, make it happen.”

Now Casey is one of those guys who helps me not give into that old TV Sitcom idea that “You give up when kids come” he has two kids, one which is little! And yet this guy has taken his daughter all over the world with him; he stays tuned with her over FaceTime when anywhere!

I want to grow. I want to just take off my business; sure it’s hosting, but I want it to be something bigger. I want to have the ability to load up the fam and go ANYWHERE and be blessed to have that fun and connections to companies, deals, things that are just me linked up and a valuable person!

I know I have value to some folks; I know I’ve made a change in lives around me, I know that in hosting folks in the past week have written some awesome things like:

I pastor a small church and thanks to Flock Hosting we are able to have some big church functionality! You folks are a real blessing!

It’s awesome that I do make a difference, but I want to feel like I’m moving forward, building, growing, and making more and more of an impact. I want to grow. Got a video or blogger that inspires you? Comment or email me and let me know!

PS:108 – Lilly Grace

So today has been a busy day with a busy kid! Today she has been go-go-go since 6:30 am, okay, probably honestly 6:15, but I held on to sleep thinking “Just five more minutes!” but it has been a busy day thus far!

Lately seems like no end in sight, and Lilly at least makes me laugh a lot! She is awesome when I’m on calls for the other server company I do work for, she plays and has fun pretty much on her own if needed, other times sitting here on my lap helping me write emails and support tickets! 😀

I’m blessed to have her as my daughter! She’s crashed out, so I’m going to burn through some work, we went to the UPS Store to get mail however upon parking and going to get her she looked exhausted! Brought her in asleep and she is still asleep! Back to the grind of work for me!

PS:107 – Somedays you just journal quietly.

I’ve always been a big supporter of journaling. For me it helps organize my thoughts, put out EVERYTHING – no filter, no “should I blog this?” type questions. Me, God, Paper. That’s it.

This week is going to be busy, my 3D printer got delayed until next Monday, and already booked a lot of hours and lots of no sleep, and it’s only Monday. I need rest. Desperately.

So till tomorrow, thanks for reading. Anyone who still comes here.

PS:106 – When you can’t sleep…

Lilly had a rough night last night, as did I. She, however, is sleeping awesomely right now which she needs mucho more of!

So when I can’t sleep I try to clear my head, try to stop sorting things out, go blank. I want all the noise to stop. Let’s be honest though – that rarely ever happens.

So last night till about 4:30 AM I was working on a few articles for TFH, Cleaned up FlockHosting.com’s few upgrade glitches, wrote a blog post, newsletter and social posts for Flock’s 14yr celebration, and eventually slept after talking myself out of a drone sunrise 🙂

I did get some good news this morning a box shipped from China, my Wanhao Duplicator i3 V2 is being shipped! I had hoped that I’d get the 2.1 (maybe I did!), but as it stands its the v2 listed so, we’ll see in 2 days (delivery is Wednesday).  I am super pumped, have a handful of prints I want to do, been sorting out to some cool toys and artsy stuff for selling! (Hello Etsy & Farmers Markets!)

My creative feeling is ramping up lately, and this 3D Printer has me excited! TFH has me excited including a re-brand (yes I know I haven’t launched yet) but wanted something more iconic than what I had. I’ll post about it with hopefully a screenshot here this week!

Hoping for a better week. Hoping for even just a better day. Still covet your prayers! Praying things are on a good track!
