|A picture of us taken few months back. :) I love this snap. to. the. core.|
If you are here for the first time, kindly read this post on Journal your Ramadan to understand this series better. Jazakumullah khair.
It's been crazy busy at home and shop. New stock came in, which meant I had to check whether everything reached safe, do some book keeping, upload products on the website etc etc etc. I'am not going to lie, PPS is a lot of work. It's literally one man (er woman) show. I do have an immensely talented Design Team to help me with challenges and other design related work. But rest everything is done by me. Alone. And ofcourse J helps me with all the heavy lifting. Poor thing, I really do nag him a lot. *wide grin*
But I love it. Too much. PPS is my baby. There are days when I ask myself why I do this to myself. Why can't I just sit and craft instead of running a business. Then there are days when I feel very proud of myself. PPS makes me feel strong, confident and has given me a lot of self esteem which I had lost a while ago.
I've met a lot of crafty ladies and made some good friends which is a huge bonus. Yes, I've lost couple of friends too. But that's ok. I cannot sit and worry about them anymore. I wasted a lot of time and energy trying to make amends. Now it's time to move on. It's time to do what is good for me. After all, who will take care of me except for me? ;)
Let me leave you with a quote I found on Shrimp Salad Circus. It describes what I want to say to those who left me without giving me a second chance.
