Happy New Year….

1 January 2013

Happy New Year….

2012 was a big year for me.   Not only did I take a bold leap in the unknown with Eclectic Cool, but personally- a few events have occurred that have made me re-evaluate my life and work.  Unfortunately, being in retail, you have to spend most of your time on the floor.   How else are you going to find out the needs and wants of your customers?  But of course, the flip side to this is that you are away from the people that you love the most which is never good- no matter how successful you are.

This year, I’m not going to work on my work/life balance. To be honest, I have so much work , it’s impossible!  I am lucky to be doing something I really enjoy even though it takes most of my time.   Instead I am going to work hard on relationships- marking out time to be wholly present with the people that I am with, even though that time may be limited & trying to be more understanding, patient and loving towards people in general.   To me, good relationships are the key to joy in life- not matter how much time you have.   As they say in the Hostlee manifesto, life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them.    I’m lucky to be living my dream & I hope you are too.

Have a great new year & remember- don’t drink and drive.
