FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS

This has been such a FAST time for me. Summer seems to go by faster. I have been trying to balance huge things. I am at my office today and working on some BIG deadlines, dealing with BIG things that never seem to go away and STRIVING for balance. I am a firm believer in looking for the GOOD and just being GRATEFUL even during our deepest trials and struggles. Recently, I have had to practice what I believe and not let a hard situation that would cause me to be very bitter to learn from this experience. I know this will be a HUGE life lesson for me. I often trust way too easy and when I get burned it's HARD to not feel angry at myself and the situation. I spent the last couple of weeks in much thought and prayer on how to grow from this experience. I have felt PEACE when I was feeling so discouraged. I was so disappointed in myself for making a decision that has made so many problems. I will be STRONGER from going through this experience. I told myself YOU can be BITTER or you can be BETTER. I will CHOOSE to stand stronger and more confident in going forward. I am so thankful for the people in my LIFE who are there for me and helping me to remember that there is GREAT AMAZING people in this world and in our life. My children, handsome husband, my work team and closest friends have supported and lifted me. TODAY I just feel I needed to share this quote.




I know that it is so easy to forget that we are all humans. WE all have problems. I have to keep things very personal due to my business and simply because I don't believe you should ever "air" your business on Social Media. It's simply not fair to anyone. I won't and will never do this. Just know that I am just like everyone else. Anyway, today I am looking for the GOOD... the GREAT... the GRATITUDE in today. 

This past week some of the things that make me smile...



Brian went to Wisconsin for the PGA Tournament with his brothers. I missed him!!!


McKay is feeling even better but seems to have gotten a intestinal problem. Taylor has been put on complete bed rest of the duration of the pregnancy. I could load TONS of photos of Cooper but am keeping these more private per Gent's request.  Coop is 3 months old. Oh my... my heart is in love.


She's starting Fall semester again at Brigham Young University. So thankful she is close to us. She truly inspires me.



Church EACH week is what keeps me going. I am so dependent on God in my life. I am always trying to be mindful that I am not in control and can only control how I handle WHAT I am given... good and bad.




My HUSBAND supports me 1,000% by going to the book debut at Cedar Fort. I spoke to book stores from around the world. I shared my inspiration and why I wrote my book. We debuted my journal. I was beyond grateful. I feel so thankful that I can't even articulate how amazing this has been. It's been tough. I shared
my heart, my struggles and my abuse as a child. It's real and 
it's scary to share what many of you don't know. It's 
been hard to open up my struggles and how I grew as a person through both good and very hard times in my life.
NO ONE has a perfect life. You may be surprised
to learn of what I went through. It's easy to judge someone by their looks, their outward appearance... but WE really never know
what anyone is going through. I used my trials to REFINE 
me and I am sharing how I did it.

 I know that Tyler would be proud
of me being honest on how hard at  times our marriage was. I wrote it with great love and acceptance of who I am. I spoke of how hard at times it was and how we worked through some serious issues. I know I am the wife
and mother I am TODAY because of Ty and my children.
I don't REGRET anything. I would do it all again.
I may have handled things differently- wouldn't we all?

I am truly a blessed woman who believes in LIVING life
with CONFIDENCE in who you are, being gentle
on ourself when we make mistakes and GROW from
them. DREAM BIGGER and LOVE yourself.
It's NOT all about me... or YOU... we are going to be HAPPY
if and when we FOCUS on others. 


I visited Seagull Book store on Saturday and saw my journals. I didn't even go to look for the book. I walked down the aisle and stopped and just stared at the books. I was in complete awe. I feel so grateful for this opportunity to design in this new market. I have always wanted to more lifestyle designs.


 My amazing friends Michelle and Andrew Grant from the UK came to visit and stay with us this past week. They went to church with me on Sunday. Michelle has been a true friend for over 13 years. We met in England at the Bonanza show. We have never lost contact. We realized the first day we met that we were very similar. Years later, she let me cry, talk and helped me when I felt so down that I didn't know which way was up. I know her positive outlook and love for me helped me when I was discouraged and afraid. She helped me realize that Tyler would want me to GO ON. He loved me and wanted me to be happy. She stayed with Ty and I before when cancer was not in our life. It was so great to have friends who understood and knew us as a family. She was that friend for me. I am publishing MY STORY because of her. She has told me for years to do this... she introduced me to the President of Cedar Fort.  Thank you dear sweet friend... love you!



This is a little bit of what I designed and what I have debuted with the Cedar Fort brand of publishers. MORE great things  are in the works too!




This is SO very exciting to announce. Yes, TODAY you can now go to my website and purchase my cell phone cases, pay for my TC events, speciality bags, t-shirts, paper, journals, stationery and more. In a effort to perform better as a company, I knew we needed our team to be able to handle the big growth we have had as a company. This way you can order direct on products and events. www.teresacollinsstudio.com
