It's not only the start of the new year, but also the start of a new decade! It's hard to believe that the year 2020 has already begun and that the holiday season is over. The end of each year seems to go by so quickly, and the beginning of a new year always seems to bring up instances of self reflection, resolutions, and looking forward to what the new year (or in this case, new decade) has to bring.
While I am not personally big on new years resolutions, or even just relying on the new year to motivate me to make new changes, as I think this should be done any time of the year, I do like to think about what the new year and the new decade will bring for Kat's Print Boutique.
This past year I have had ups and downs with Kat's Print Boutique and my own motivations with it. There were definitely times where I wished I could have been spending more time on it, but there were also many points where my motivation was lacking. Whether it be that I was tired, sick, lacking creative inspiration, or even just questioning the future of Kat's Print Boutique, there were definitely, and still might continue to be some moments where I lack the motivation I so desperately want to have.
No matter how many times I question myself and the future of my business, I always come to the same conclusion. I started this business as more than just a way to make money. I started as I way to fulfill some of my creative passions, as well as a way to fulfill a dream that I've always had in one way or another, to design clothes. While this journey hasn't been as easy and straightforward as I would have hoped it would have been, that doesn't change the fact that I am fulfilling a dream I have had since I was a child. My business is still new. Yes, I would love to be able to spend more time on it. Yes, I wish it was more successful at times. And yes, there are times where it is hard. But that doesn't mean I should give up. It means I have to overcome my questions and doubts and work towards making this business what I always dreamed it could be.
While it is hard for me to say where Kat's Print Boutique will be at the end of the decade, I can tell you a little bit about what I hope to do with it in the next year. I want to bring you more open and honest blogs, like this one. I want to be able to bring you more new designs that are hopefully going to become all of our new favourites. And one thing I know I'll be bringing you, is some great new products!
