Think Outside the Box


You've heard that before, right? "Think outside the box". Do you know what it means? It means, do not settle for second best! It means you've gone this far, but it's not far enough. Keep going, keep thinking, keep working, keep motivated!

I've mentioned twitter at least a few times on my blog. The non-twitter people just don't get it, but the twitter people, well, they know...twitter is great!

For example...while on twitter several weeks ago, an event planner http://www.eventjubilee.com/ sent me a tweet asking if I would be willing to send some of my vintage china to her for a bridal photo shoot, which will most likely be featured in at least a few bridal magazines in Connecticut! I didn't think twice! I thought outside the box! I love both of my vintage shops and they're doing quite well, but I know there are more opportunities out there!

What prompted this post is another opportunity that I found out about tonight! All I can say is I'm shipping out a pair of milk glass candlesticks to New York City (love NYC!!).

So don't settle-never settle-think outside the box! Live the best darn life you can. The way I see it is, what do you have to loose? Do you want to be 80 years old thinking, "why didn't I do this-or that"? Go for it!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Absolutely. Your post made me think of Forrest like as in Forrest Gump.
Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you will get.
