It is a rainy drizzly day here in NYC, the perfect day for sitting back with a cup of tea and contemplating the past year. I celebrated the one year anniversary of my business on Saturday.
It was nice reflect back on the past year and everything that I have accomplished. Sometimes it is hard for me to step back and see the full picture especially since I am juggling all the nitty gritty details day to day. I sometimes get wound up on the small things that went wrong, the sales I could have made, or missed opportunities. When in reality a lot has happened with the past year. For those things that didn’t go as planned, things I couldn’t have imagined came out of them and it has been an amazing journey!
I was talking with a friend the other day about my initial business plan and how if I were to take that out and go point by point things haven’t gone the way I have anticipated, but you know what at the end of the day it is ok. No one said that the first few years of business were going to be easy and I’ve had some rocky moments but throughout it all have never stopped believing in what I do and what I want to put out into the world.
I chose the above quote because it is something that I would like to take with me into my next year of running Kimberly Lewis Home. There have definitely been times when I have thought ‘what am I doing?’ and I often have to remind myself to run my business fearlessly and truthfully. I love the products that I put out and I hope that others find joy in them and adding them to their homes. I can’t wait to see what year #2 brings!
