Anniversary

Commit

A strong meaning. Sometimes quite a daunting stepping stone. 

I find a few issues arise when thinking of commitment. It intensifies feelings you’re maybe not ready for. To commit to any promise means giving of yourself without holding back. Absolute belief in the object of your committing is vital. This doesn’t mean you won’t have second thoughts, that’s possible and not necessarily a bad thing. It won’t always mean you can’t commit to said promise, it may be that some things are more difficult or become more difficult as time goes on. 

Like relationships, they require hard work, yet someone doesn’t always feel the urge to stay or live with the same level of commitment. Its quite a challenge to commit to a business you’re building if financially its course seems hard and current outcomes aren’t what you envisaged. 

This month, the 19th of June, we celebrated our 1st year anniversary as Simply Home – Made. Its been quite a journey, sometimes I tend to tread in area’s that we aren’t yet ready for simply because I insist we can. I believe if we push boundaries, throw ourselves in the deep-end so to speak, it affirms our thirst for growth, resilience, a fearlessness for new trends or techniques, though we are still very lacking in the financial department. I put this down to “buyers fear”, pictures sometimes don’t speak a thousand words, though there is no lack of flavour, aesthetic appeal or cost effectiveness or competitive lustre. People sometimes just prefer sticking to vendors whom they know and trust. 

Also, there exists an unseen, yet subtle amount of envy between vendors, they are only willing to endorse themselves, perhaps there exists an invisible “clique”. Never liked clique’s. Always seemed untrustworthy a term. Almost like a Hollywood movie, where the popular well established financially sound perfect smiling faces seethe at the audacity of a newbie or rather a ” I prefer wearing my old blue jeans” kinda team. We like grassroots, we like our own space, we like shaping our own destiny. We are thriving inwardly, we can almost take care of our families needs, whilst stocking up on inventory, though small.

We don’t expect riches, nor popularity. We do however commit ourselves to continue our journey until the glow of light that motions us in the morning, finds its place in the sun, under the umbrella of opportunity that persists its knocking in our hearts for we have laid our foundation, we have planted a number of seeds and when the good Lord says its time, we shall carry on through the next avenue of our journey.
