Saturday Thoughts: Never give up, and a few tears are okay

As the week draws to close, dear readers, I reflect on how I came out of my post-hump-day, same ol' same ol' slump this morning. It was easy -I just turned on my computer, and there they were - not one but two Etsy sales waiting for me in my inbox! (No, it doesn't take much to get me excited, lol).
.
I sold this, my colorful Fiesta Flower Scarf -which had only been listed for 12 hours or so!

And I also sold my sweet Spring Tones Cropped Vest ~ which has been in my shop practically since I started selling, in August 2008.

So, in one day, I sold both my oldest and my newest item at EclecticaByJan! I love all my sales, and I was very happy to sell the vest - I've always thought it to be an adorable design, yet it sat there and sat there, to the point where I despaired of ever finding a buyer for it. (Plus, I've been wanting to make another one, because it was such a fun little project.) Well, now I can make another - and I'm happy for the reminder to Never Give Up on a Product - it may take a while, but there's always a buyer to be found!
.
Where did the tears come in, with all this good news? Well, I gave myself the treat today of listening on the radio to Live at the Met's broadcast of La Boheme. It doesn't matter how many times I've heard this well-loved opera, I always cry at the end when Mimi dies and her lover Rudolfo sings out her name. I defy anyone to listen to Puccini's music in this moment without getting teary! And it was cathartic for me - it has been a tough week (we don't need to go into that now), and even though I'm feeling better, shedding a few tears was a not a bad thing.
.
It's been good day, learning the lesson to never give up - and reminding myself that when a good cry is needed, there's always a opera for it!
