Crackle Barrel Adventure

I described my typical work week to a friend. When you say it out loud or even write it down ---it can sound very exhausting. Enough to make your head spin. Not like in a Linda Blair kinda way. I just aged myself. If you don't know who she is , google her or just picture head spinning in a very unnatural and unattractive way. Where was I? Oh yeah, It's a lifestyle I manage yet so many others effectively manage the busyness of their day, as well. I'm very structured and realized just today , I don't leave a margin for spontaneity. My calendar runneth over so to speak.

Once again,my daughter,Julia (18) has taught me another lesson. She didn't come with instructions , yet came with such an amazing heart and sense of adventure. At a young age she was always running away from me at the mall. Even now at Parkway Plaza its hard to keep up with her. I either use Sprint locator to ping her or check her bank transactions to find her. Where was I ? Oh yeah, there are days that call for a spontaneous adventure. She and Nathan recently drove to Crackle Barrel for breakfast. Awe, yeah , in Yuma ,AZ . A 3 hour road trip to eat a meal. That's 6 hours round trip. My body aches now just thinking about sitting for 6 hours in a car. Yet, Travel memories will last a life time. I haven't even visited a local Chick-Fil-A ! That's right , I have never been inside a Chick-Fil- A. I heard there is one in La Mesa. In reality ,an adventure for me is driving to The Goodwill in Point Loma. That's an amazing date night with myself. It works for me. I'm a cheap date and can afford me. Plus, I like my East County neighborhood. I really enjoy my structured little life. Travelling stopped appealing to me when gas prices went up and don't get me started on how many people forget their manners when getting behind the wheel.
In my Christian life, I don't allow myself to get too comfortable or too at ease in my walk. I'm always learning and taking it all in always wanting to be a baby Christian. I need to do the same socially. I tend to stay in my comfort zone. Same routine. Same comfort level. Lately,in my walk ,I have stepped out into the uncomfortable. Praying more with people, sharing my faith more. Holding steadfast to an accountability partner who I share every fiber of my life with. Trusting God more.
It dawned on me today, I need to branch out more outside my social cocoon and live a little. Add room in my calendar for a spontaneous combustion of sorts. You know, like find a Goodwill store pass a 100 mile radius from East County, Live a little.
I bought a 2018 $3 Calendar at Target. I'm planning on setting my sights for an adventurous New Year.
How about you?

Rachel Rose Mercantile Est .2017

My little logo I made on Canva

Found a clothing line ,Gospel in a Jar that I really connected with. Here's their logo:

Well, I decided early on to acquire my re-sellers permit so I could purchase the clothing wholesale. The saying on the shirts and tees go like this: 

Grace Upon Grace 

Amazing Grace How Sweet the Sound 

Faith it till you Make it 

It is well 

She has fire in Her soul & Grace in her heart 

This wholesale/retail  process is in the early baby stages yet will one day come to fruition . 

I named the company "Rachel Rose Mercantile" to leave it open for a variety of merchandise. 

We shall see where this journey takes me. 
I can  vision a retail store , co-op type to help cover operation cost. 
I picture a retail website on Amazon to cover plenty of territory. 
Again, this is in the baby stages so I'm planning on writing a business proposal to keep me held accountable. 

Have you dreamed lately  of something that seems unattainable? Unreachable? 
Have you done any steps to help it along?  
Share your dreams and thoughts in the comments. 
I'd love to hear them.
