In December of 2019, a year that we hilariously wished would end so that we could make our "my vision is 2020!" sentiments come to life, I posted a photo with the following caption:
This time of year is always the best for reflecting. It can be so hard to do so without comparing or dwelling! I realized that I haven't really felt like myself for a while. And I haven't been even scratching the surface of what I'm capable of. But I finally feel like I'm moving toward where I'd like to be. It's been a really weird few years, and I'm very much looking forward to 2020. I can't wait to share another year of beauty with you all!
All I can say is L O L...I guess I can recycle that caption?
I could say so much about this year. In fact, I've been trying to find the right words for my yearly wrap up for over a month now. I've written several different versions of this, all of which came off as way too whiny. Who wants to hear that? Things are tough enough! I'll save my whining for my journal (and my husband, poor guy).
What I really want to say is THANK YOU. The percentage of small businesses that have closed their doors forever due to Covid is staggering, and without my amazing, loyal clients, mine would be one of them. I'm doing everything in my power to prevent that from happening, I promise! I might be barely hanging on, but my grip is firm and I am confident that I will be writing another year in review next December. I love you guys so much, and I truly am only living my dream because you have helped get me here. I can't believe that I get to do this for a living! Full time! I was really scared after my nanny job ended, because it meant that stability ended too. But the capability is endless. I can focus on giving you the best experience possible when you come to CDB. I cannot wait to create some amazing things in 2021. Whether you came in for one brow appointment this year or you get a treatment once a month, I'm grateful for your support of my business and I would not be here without you.
I know that things won't magically be better when the clock strikes midnight on December 31, but I'm setting positive intentions for 2021 regardless and I hope that you'll join me. If the magic doesn't come, I guess we'll just have to create it!
