I put my gardening clothes on and I mowed the lawn...and enjoyed it. I painted planters, I cut branches, fixed some borders. Then, when the garden was all clean and pretty, I got the garden swing cushions out...and spent pretty much the next 2 weeks in the garden. It was nice, restful. I didn't think of the shops. Oh I still shipped orders if something sold...but that was about it. And I was unusually happy and at peace.
And then when I was done doing ...well...nothing...I reassessed my situation. Do I keep working on those shops that are simply not working? Do I just give up? I couldn't possibly do more hours. I need to change something but what? I have not reached any final decisions yet but I know I am not letting that eat my life away again.
I am closing my Storenvy shop. It'll be easier to look after 3 shops than 4.
I may lower my prices too. I know some of you will be horrified reading that...as it is poor business practice in general...but all my competitors are either cheaper or more expensive, being in the middle range does nothing for me...and I am not comfortable raising my prices.
I may also separate my plugs and kawaii jewelry. I know it's harder to look after several shops (duh...I just said I was closing one LOL) but I no longer feel those 2 ranges fit together. And maybe it'll just give me a new outlook on things.
Or I may just rob and bank and move to a warm places with the cats.
Oh and the lawn needs mowing again now...
