Real Life

This is 10

This is Ten

My Maddie turns ten today. I’ve been reflecting a lot over the last few days about how much life has changed, how far we have come as a family, and how much we have all grown. The other night she was sitting in the back of the studio helping me unpack some handbags. I caught a glimpse of her out of the corner of my eye, sitting casually amongst our inventory, and I couldn’t help but start to cry. I was filled with gratitude, and also overwhelmed with relief. I am so relieved and grateful that everything worked out, that I didn’t mess our lives up when I started the business, and that she’s been with me every step of the way.

2017 Goals

At the beginning of each year, I share my goals for the New Year believing that by declaring my intentions I’m more likely to keep them. I spent the last few weeks reflecting on 2016. There are so many reasons to be grateful: a healthy family, happy marriage, great friends and a growing business. I am abundant in blessings.

But last year also brought many opportunities for self-reflection and growth. While I would love nothing more than to blame everyone else for the challenges I may have faced, the grown up thing to do is to find my ownership, learn my lesson, and move on. In doing so, I realized two things: (1) I have to stop caring about what other people think and (2) I must trust and respect my instincts.
