Pondering Opportunities

My co-worker said something a couple weeks ago that really got me thinking. We were talking about times in our lives we'd love to go back to and she said that the most exciting and fun time in her life was her mid-late 20's before her husband and her had children. They went on adventures together and they both had a great jobs. It was just an exhilarating time in her life. That caused me to ponder...am I missing those years by wanting a child so badly? I literally live as though I am a mother...but I'm not. Right now, being a mom is not in Gods plans for me. I should really seize the moment and use the blessings I've been given to make the most of life.

After that revelation I was contacted by a clothing supplier who wanted to work with Jazz It Up. Feeling motivated from my previous discovery I jumped at the opportunity. Is it risky? Yes. Will I succeed in this venture? Who knows! But I am 26 years old and I am going to give it a try. Why not? I absolutely love each and every design that I will be selling. It feels great to believe in your product.

Here is a little sample of the designs-


Flounce One-shoulder Dress $13 shipped


Off-shoulder Lotus Leaf Dress $30 shipped

Round Collar Half Sleeve Dress $13 shipped

Retro Maxi Embroidered Dress $21 shipped

Peep Shoulder T-Shirt $18 shipped


Bowknot Sleeveless Blouse $13 shipped

Bohemian style blouse $24 shipped


Gorgeous Bowknot Cotton tank $10 shipped

Slim Leopard Montage Dress $48 shipped

Off-shoulder Lotus Leaf Dress $15 shipped
There are so much many more where that come from but I don't want to over-load you with pictures. I am so excited and nervous for this new business venture. Although I may not have a child like I had hoped I do have things to be thankful for.

I really appreciate all your prayers and well-wishes. They mean the world to me and they put a smile on my face when I was feeling down. I thank you from the bottom of my heart dear friends!

Hi Rachel, I am happy that Jazz it up is going on the right track.

Maybe God is giving you this time to find new adventures with your hubby. He know the right time and when that time comes, he will give the desires of your heart.

We will continue praying for that and for now, enjoy your time with your hubby and enjoy the expansion of jazz it up. I wish you all the best in life.

oh my!i just love that green blouse.

well anyway, you're right Rachel. maybe it's not yet the time. God answers our prayers at the right time and when He thinks that we're ready for it. so for the meantime, enjoy the blessings around you and continue to explore your creative side.

that is really excitng. And you are so right, you do really need to sieze the moment. Not because you are young and things will change when you have children. But you just need to continue to enjoy your life as a woman, a friend and a wife and when you suppose a be a mother, you will. I'm looking forward to the clothing line. How fun!!

All of those are so cute!

And as for enjoying life now and not having a child, other people have said that maybe it's not time yet, and maybe it's not. I wish you all the best with everything.
