So, this probably doesn’t quite qualify as inspirational, but it sure does crack me up. It really is true in the aspect it reflects the highs and lows I can go through running my own business. Ultimately, at the end of the day I’m happy. I love what I do and I wouldn’t give it up or change anything…but there are those times when I go “why the heck did I start my own business?!?!”
Actions speak louder than words. Can’t tell you how often I heard that growing up, in work situations, on sports teams… This quote reminded me of it. It reminded me that I set examples for my younger siblings, that my actions affected my teams accomplishments, that what I did could make a change (didn’t matter how small). I think this saying works for all aspects of life. It’s some good advice to try and live by.
It’s that time of year where I make a list of my goals for the year. And that list is always bigger and longer than any one person can feasibly get done in a year, but it’s great motivation. There’s always worrying and stress for me in the beginning of the year, but there’s also a lot of excitement for what the year will bring. I’m ready to tackle 2017!
As 2016 comes to an end can I give you all a challenge? Try something new this coming year. Whether it’s soap/bath product related or life related. Find something that fascinates you or intrigues you or frightens you (there’s been plenty of soap making related products I’ve put off making for fear of the challenge!). And do it. Make mistakes. Learn from them. I plan to do the same. Something soap related and something life related. I’ll post about them in the coming year and invite you to share as well!
Happy New Year Everyone! Here’s to a successful 2017!
