Relying in the first on her own strength, she strikes with full confidence of victory

I thought long and hard about Black Friday

  I thought long and hard about Black Friday

I haven’t participated in black Friday sales for several years now. And each year I decide not to I have that moment when I waiver. Everyone’s doing it, maybe I should too, what if I’m missing out. What if I’m not busy. What if people buy somewhere else. It’s a revolving door of doubt! 

I talked about this over on my Instagram stories this morning. And then I remembered this quote from the Irish Proclamation

Relying in the first on her own strength, she strikes with full confidence of victory
– The Irish Proclamation 1916

And I remembered all the reasons why black Friday is not what I want my business to be. And let me be clear room not criticising any business that does it, every case is different. But this helped me stick to my guns. 

AND 

It gave me the perfect inspiration for how I will be thanking every customer who orders on my website over the weekend. 

Relying in the first on her own strength, she strikes with full confidence of victory

With every order will go one of these victory pencils. I think its the perfect little thank you, because sometimes we all need to be reminded of our own STRENGTH
