Constantly Climbing


I am currently at my day job listening to my MP3 player, when I hear "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus. WOW! That song could be my anthem as of late.

She starts off talking about visualizing her dreams but that voice inside keeps telling her that she does not have what it takes to make it. Boy do I know that feeling. We all have dreams that we don't feel like we can accomplish. However, when we continue to chip away towards our goal, we wake up one morning and we have reached it. It is only when we give up that we lose our chance.

We all have mountians we want to move. Right now my mountain is the big 0 sales on my etsy store. Every day I am taking steps to move that mountain. Some are small, some are giant leaps, but I have faith that each step is taking me closer to my goal. And once I reach that goal, I will create another goal with bigger mountains to move!

In my life I have found that when I am constantly working towards a goal, I am a more content person. I wake up with something to look forward too. Something I am going to make happen. However, when I spend my time in aimless abyss, I find myself down emotionally and grouchy alot of the time.

So maybe always having another mountain to move is not a bad thing. You always have the surprise of what is on the journey and what you may find on the other side of that mountain. If you are lucky you might just find a treasure chest on the other side of that mountain!

  3. Keep up the good work! According to my etsy team, June sales are notoriously slow and they should pick up again near the end of July...I haven't had any since April, but just like you, I keep chipping away!

  4. Nice post - keep positive. I have been on ETSY for a long time now and my sales are very low. I believe in my work and I love what I do, feeling this way keeps me going.

  9. I've felt that way lately too! I had a couple weeks where I was selling something every few days, and I thought my shop was taking off at last. But now, two weeks of nada. Keep climbing! Your jewelry is lovely.
