If at first you do not suceed try harder and stop feeling sorry for yourself

So the other day I was going over all my old work deciding what gets tossed. What I love and must keep. What to give away or put on special. Then I realized that I was also feeling a little sorry for myself that my art work was not selling much lately. So I looked at some Aceos that had been sitting and unlisted because the first pictures of them came out pathetic. So I got off my whining ass and made myself get better pictures. It sold the next day. So this got me thinking about my vintage shop and how truly neglected it has been as of late. So I went in took a list of all those things that just screamed help me. Then re photographed each damn thing. While no I do not expect them to sell the next day I damn well expect for people to at least see them and be more interested in my shop.
So my little lesson I learned and wanted to share was simply to not allow yourself to wallow. Really you just end up smelling like crap.
hehe see yall tomorrow
