52 Weeks of Grateful: Courage

I don't always read Brons post before I write my grateful as I don't want it to change my thoughts but today as I had such a firmly planned one in my head I did and I am still sitting here with shivers as I could almost cut and paste!!

This week I am grateful for Courage. There are so many choices you make in life and last year hubby and I took a big leap of faith and trusted some advice from our web boys. That advice could have been just a good ploy to get some extra cash from us or could have been an absolutely priceless piece of advice for the future of our business. I love them and I trust them (I met them 5 years beforehand) and the feeling in my gut was so strong from day 1 of chatting to them about Down that Little Lane that we would be a formidable team that I didn't hesitate in saying go for it... Yesterday their advice paid us back.. not in a monetary sense but in future business we are now set to rock the world. I am so happy we had the courage to trust

But the freaky thing this week is that my other thing I am grateful for is Generosity... I went to Life Instyle yesterday and managed to meet so many of our sellers that were exhibiting there (I didn't get to all of them.. 90%) and the overwhelming thing I got back was that they firstly thought I was doing an amazing job (aw shucks) and secondly that they were so full of ideas and support along with such generous offers for the future. I was humbled yet ego boosted to the max..


I topped off the day with a surprise 40th (so a chance to frock up) for another favourite friend and really had a rather fabulous day...lots of fist pumps and boo yeahs!! What are you grateful for this week?

  1. I've been thinking A LOT about your journey recently, Tessa. I so admire your tenacity and courage as you get in there and follow your dreams. Down that Little Lane is still in its infancy, but already it's a triumph. I'm glad you are still feeling so inspired by it all.

    Courage and generosity, huh? I can't see you eating a Maxibon any time soon, but otherwise we are right on track together. x
