Time to reflect...Zeit zum Nachdenken

Today is a public holiday over here, and on slow days like these I tend to reflect on which direction my small business is going or rather which direction I want it to go. I'm at a crossroads. There are signs that point to rapid expansion ~ a lovely lady who owns this adorable boutique in the picture below contacted me about carrying my entire line ~ BUT there are also clear signs that this increased activity is not conducive to my health (yeah, I'm still having issues, but I don't mention it much because I want to keep my blog a happy place). Plus I opened another online shop (more on that in future). So today will be spent on the couch, reflecting, getting back in touch with my soul and hopefully coming to a decision that will reflect my true path.


Feiertage machen mich immer nachdenklich. Draussen wie drinnen ist alles still. Da es schon wieder regnet werde ich den heutigen Tag auf unserem Sofa verbringen, nachdenken wie es mit meinem Mikrounternehmen weitergeht ~ ich wurde neulich von einer sehr netten Boutique Besitzerin auf meine gesamte Kollektion angesprochen (siehe Bild oben). Hübsch, nicht wahr? Jammerschade, dass ich als Ein-Frau-Betrieb solch einen Großauftrag nicht annehmen kann. Tja, und deshalb werde ich mich heute darauf besinnen, was und wieviel ich persönlich erreichen möchte und ob eine schlagartige Expansion mich tatsächlich glücklich macht.

thanks for stopping by today. Have a lovely day!
wünsche allen einen erholsamen Feiertag!

  1. While expansion would be terrific money-wise, you're right: your health is number one important, and you need to take care of yourself. Enjoy your day on the couch, and get plenty of relaxation. :)

    (by the way, it seems like a lot of us are at a crossroads, including me. Good luck to us all!)

  2. Hello Duni! I always believe that health should be prioritized above anything else. Cliche as it may sound but health is indeed wealth. You cannot do things without being backed up by good health. I remember reading in your old blog about your health issues. I hope and pray that you'll be granted a healthy and strong body to surpass everything. Have faith, the right and perfect opportunity will soon come.

  3. Hi Duni! I am so happy for you that this lovely boutique wants to carry your items, you do such amazing work, it's no wonder! I'm sorry to hear that your health isn't up to par, and will pray for your healing! I've been at a crossroads for some time now...since my baby-girl turned 18 several years ago. I still don't know what's in my future! Well, I do know that I'll soon be a GRANDMA! : )

    Take care sweetie, and know that I think of you often and wish you well! xoxo~Cheryl

  6. Well, if you are not healthy then you won't be able to attend to the boutique orders! And what a gorgeous shop--it is inviting me right in and wish I was near.

    It is hard to be at that fork in the road and trying to decide which path to take. Goodness knows that I have taken many trips. I do see you hiring someone to help you out and I can only pray that your health improves. (Enough already!!)

    I was so excited to read about your new shop and I look forward to seeing what you do.

  9. Hej Duni,

    ich kann Deine Gedanken gut verstehen... was als wundervolles Hobby beginnt, darf eigentlich nicht zum negativen Streß werden. Aber ich denke, dass Dein Bauchgefühl Dir schon den Weg weisen wird!

    Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende! Katja

    P.S. neeeee, sie hatten sich nicht abgesprochen mit den weißen Outfits... ich (hinter der Kamera) war NICHT weiß - war schon ein komisches Gefühl...

  10. Das ist ja toll! Solch ein Angebot ist immer sehr verlockend und ich kann es verstehen, dass man über Expansion sehr vorichtig nachdenkt. Du wirst sicherlich die richtige Entscheidung treffen, die Dir und auch Deinen Lieben gut tut.
    Das Geschäft sieht ja traumhaft aus, da würde ich jetzt am liebsten reingehen wollen.
    Lass es Dir gut gehen!
    Alles Liebe und ich drücke Dir die Daumen für Deine Entscheidung!
    Verena
    xoxo
