Each Step is a Push

This is a repost from last night since the link seems to have been infiltrated with spam!

If you have read my blog for a bit, you know that last year I had my first “sale”.

It was scary, and I did it, and then I did it again.

I thought once I went through it, it wouldn’t be scary anymore.

I was wrong.

I have been trying to convince myself that life is too busy, there is too much going on with our schedules in other areas to make it work.

I did not have a spring show, mainly because I had not had good luck in finding merchandise to sell in time.

However, my plan was to have a show this fall and then participate in another show right after Thanksgiving.

But the doubt starting to creep in once again.

So today, when I was in one of my favorite shops and saw this stack of 7 paneled doors, I knew exactly what I would do with them, but I wasn’t going to buy them.

Seven would mean actually doing what was in my head, committing to it.

But then it hit me – well that is just stupid.

And so, I negotiated a great price for all seven and also bought another three next door.

They are now in my chaotic garage with all of these fabulous boxes that I bought at Brimfield to work on and sell.

I don't feel any less intimidate by going through the whole process again, but I took one more step forward.

How about you, when something is intimidating do you have to talk yourself through each step, or do you just go for it?

Have a great weekend!
