Happy New Year to all!
In making my resolutions for 2105, I'm being gentler with myself. I've learned that setting unattainably high goals creates extreme stress and may be downright counterproductive. Despite fairly strong holiday sales in my Etsy shops and at craft fairs, I felt like a failure in 2014 because I fell so far short of my goals. If I'd ignored the goals, I might have convinced myself it was a pretty good year.
The crystal ball is cloudy as I look ahead to 2015, but changes may be looming on the day job(s) horizon that could impact my Etsy life. That's another reason I've lowered the bar for 2015.
My word for 2015 is: REGROUP
