As the captain of our wonderful team it is my privilege to write one of the first posts as we relaunch our blog. I have thought often of what I should write and how I can best help our members in the best way.
I know that the majority of our members are mothers or very busy career women or both and thus do not have as much time as they would like to devote to their shops and Etsy careers. This can be frustrating and discouraging.
One or our members actually reached out and wanted to know if others felt overwhelmed and discouraged when trying to juggle all the many things that are asked of us on a daily basis. I believe the answer was a resounding YES!
As I told her then I believe that it is a matter of giving ourselves credit for the things we are able to accomplish. I am amazed at our team members and the beautiful things they create even in the limited amount of time they have.
I am going to try to take my own advice and learn to accept my limitations and be glad and pleased with what I CAN do.
I hope you will do the same for yourself.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
