The light at the end...


This week I am grateful for other peoples honesty.. I met up with a couple of our sellers that I find really inspiring and that have been running their own business for a little longer than me.

I have always been self employed but I have never been a boss, never had people to look after, never had partners and actually never had many overheads so running the website has been a HUGE change and whilst we have hit every target and exceeded expectations in each and every way there are still days that I cry.

I sit at my computer and sob. I have a huge work load and I am a Mum who is only human. I am doing an amazing job (yes I can say that and yes I do believe it) and my tears are tears of fear, tears of tiredness and the tears of an over achiever that only has herself to blame.

So why am I grateful? I am grateful those girls told me they did the same, that they told me it was normal and they KNEW I would laugh at it all in a years time.

I took a picture of my tears. I feel vulnerable to post it but its true and its honest and I can't wait to look back in a years time and laugh at my sad old face and be grateful again that I have moved on..


Do you ever admit life is not all peachy? Its not easy but it is well worth it..

  2. Yes I do think life is not always peachy. But I truly think all the challenges and moments we don't love, only make us appreciate the moments we do. It sounds airy fairy, but I don't think we could have a deep appreciation for the good stuff if it was ALL good.

    Times are tough, but they make us who we are. You are right, you're doing a marvellous job, you're doing *something*. Good on and for you. :)
