Have you had a proper chance to welcome 2018 into your life? Well, if not, now is the time to do so! 

2017 was a year of learning for me, and so will be 2018, yet in a different way. As a maker I am going to focus more on what I am actually making and why my audience desires to own it, rather than frantically trying to sell what is in my shop ; I prefer quality over quantity. We grow and evolve as artists every day, it is OK to try a million new ideas before you find the one that is right. After all you would not settle for a pair of pants that didn’t fit, just because it is too much work to buy a new pair , right?  One of my favorite authors ‘Andrea Owen’ says this in her ” 52 Ways To Live A Kick-Ass Life” book, and I feel it truly pertains to what I am speaking of:

 

 The hard truth is that the longer you stay stuck in a story of blaming your circumstances, the more you keep repeating that story to yourself and to others, the more you will remain in the same story”

This really resonated with me, how about you? Remember, it is YOUR business, your story, you decide how you want it to be, there are no rules. In business the only way to grow is through trial and error, and the only way for trial and error is to not sit back and accept defeat. You must put one foot in front of the other to keep moving.  ” What happens if I fall “? ”  Get up, and keep going.  ” What of others try to make it difficult for me “? ”  YOU are the only one that gets to decide your own destiny, NO ONE ELSE! You can’t let the haters control you, or you’ll never get anywhere; true story! I want you to repeat after me : ”

” We ALL fail, but I choose to give myself a break and realize it is part of learning 

 

Now get out there, create, be you with wild abandon, never say sorry, give yourself plenty of love and realize how ridiculously amazing and wonderful you are. There is not one else like you, an THAT is amazing. You will leave an impression on this world that no one will ever forget.
