I Can Do Hard Things ... So Do Them

Posted by Donna Fox on

I Can Do Hard Things

I can do hard things. I know I can, even when I don't feel like I can.

But sometimes, it's that I don't want to. 'Cause I don't wanna. And when that happens...that whining "I just don't wanna" moment...I realize I probably need to do it anyway. The only thing holding me back is myself. I don't want to make excuses.

So, this past fall, this was my motto: I can do hard things. First (and this is a big one) I did an outdoor show. The unpredictability of an outdoor show makes me uncomfortable, so I usually avoid them.Even harder, it was the first out-of-town show I had ever done before. Fortunately, this one turned out to be a peach of a weekend and a good show.

But that's not all. Harder than ever, I scheduled myself for 12 shows in 9 weeks. On top of working at a gallery. On top of being a mom. On top of actually making jewelry. It made for a challenging fall schedule, but I got through it. I even asked friends for help, which I'd never done before. And guess what. They were more than happy to help!

So now, I have to ask, what hard things am I gong to do this year?

What hard things are you going to do this year?

Why Shops Should Stock the "Rare" Initials

Many shops ask me what the "best" letters are to carry. My answer: The best initials to have in stock are the initials your customer wants. (So carry them all.
