If you have had children you undoubtedly remember those days. Where you would wander, zombie like, from one task to another and forever grateful when your newborn was sleeping and you could shut your eyes briefly? That's how I felt today even though my youngest is no longer a newborn but nearing 3 years. And even worse, I was out of coffee with the exception of instant packs. (Instant packs are like eating granulated sugar when what you really want is chocolate.)
At first I cursed myself for not halting my crafting and going to bed earlier but then it hit me-Confectionique is like our newborn. We have grown our little market over the past year and socialized it and thought carefully about it's upbringing. It still means that I will have some "newborn days" where I just need to catch up on some needed sleep. The thing is that I don't want to rest for too long because I don't want to miss out on any steps our business might make.
So then I regain my energy once I start posting about the amazingly talented and supportive vendors we have that have brought such lovely treasures to Market. A smile appears on my face even as I type into wee hours of the night because I love what we have created and are doing. I love how it started, the positive energy it has and how it continues to grow. And like raising a "newborn", it takes a lot of support from everyone around us to maintain our stamina-even though it's all good.
