Happy New Year Lovelies, I hope you all had a good one.
I have been M.I.A for a few months as I needed some time to sort through a few things and to just plan out what I wanted to do in the New Year.
Towards the middle of last year, I embarked on my entrepeneurial journey with Gifts By Azania and it is making good progress. Small progress is still progress, and I definitely need to crawl before I can walk.
Check out my Etsy shop here!
I have designed my logo, my gifts tags, I have sourced my bags that they will be packaged in as well as the gift boxes. I have also incorporated flower hat boxes which I think has added that luxurious touch to my business, and it ties in well with home decor and interiors too!
What do you think? 😍😍
I am also working on taking part in some shows to showcase my products this year but this does come at a cost so I need to get my finances in order and make a few sacrifices. A few shows such as the Wedding show and other business that enable you to showcase New talent have been in contact with me which is always a good sign.
Sadly, my Grandma passed away in November which really got to me, and I took a week off work. It was at this time that I realised that I was not happy with a few things such as the stress of my job – when you work for a company where everybody leaves and your forced to take on extra work (with no increase in pay) when there isn’t enough manpower is draining both mentally and physically so I knew I had to make a change.
This year is about my sanity, health and well-being first and foremost in EVERYTHING – my work life, relationship and friendships. If any of these areas are causing you unwanted stress, try and work hard to change it. Life is too short to be unhappy.
My plans for the year is to work on myself and on my business. I know that once I can find a strategy to balance my 9-5 work alongside my business and home life, I will feel a lot more at ease.
Just remember guys, as long as your happy within yourself, all your other plans will fall into place because your are exuberating positive energy into the Universe. When you know that you are not happy inside, try and find that happy place slowly.
Find time to put yourself first this New Year. ❤️
