New Year, New Sage Wild

Hey Sage Wild Fam!

Well here we are, halfway through the first month of 2020. I started out the year with some sort of plague, which gave me a bit of a reality check on how I had been doing things. So I decided to take a step back, regroup, and restart myself both physically and mentally. More often than not I am running on 2-3 hours of sleep and coffee, lots of coffee. I tend to focus entirely too much on the task at hand which ends up causing me to put my health on the back burner. Along with this I usually put my home on hold, which means it looks like some sort of bomb went off. So I decided, while sitting on my couch wrapped in a blanket looking at the mess that I was too ill to clean, that 2020 would be the year. I decided to start this year out healthy. I decided to start this year out clean and organized. I have spent the past 2 weeks getting my home and self back together again. Most importantly in my home I have been FINALLY putting together the Sage Wild work room. Since I had moved in this room has been a work in progress. There was no ceiling (just a nice view of the underside of the roof, partial drywall, and probably a family or two of mice living somewhere in the room. The work room was always freezing due to the draft coming through the door, windows, and the lack on insulation in the non existent ceiling. Last winter my family went in as a gift for me and put in an insulated ceiling with storage, drywall, and sealed up some cracks. Though this helped, it still left the room slightly chilly and beyond unorganized. So far this year I have begun painting the walls, sorting and organizing supplies, and getting the room set up with work tables and cabinets. I hope to have the room completed before summer but there is still a lot of work to do. The floor is still just sub flooring which makes it a little chilly in the winter time. I still have some painting to do and trim to put up. A ceiling light needs wired in and there are some storage solutions I still need to move in. All of this is essential in having optimal production from Sage Wild. I used to be okay with the unorganized mess, but I realized that it is much more efficient this way. Though it is taking time out of my ability to create new products, in the end it will open up endless opportunities. It has taken a lot for me to be okay with stopping creating in order to get my life in order, but I know it is what I need to do. I can promise you all that I have big things coming. I appreciate your patience more than I could ever express as I take on this journey. I plan to post some photos soon of the progress of the room, but until then, Stay Wild.
