A Lil’ Inspiration #2

Quoted text is teal against a grayscale scenic background of a roadway with mountains.Hi Everyone,

I want to apologize for being MIA over the past week. I’ve been building out my online store and it’s taken a wee bit more time than I had anticipated but I’m hopeful that it will go live this week. In the interim I wanted to share with you a snippet from Mel Scott, a monthly contributor and one of the women I’ve featured on Women on the Move.

The image is a scenic roadway with mountains & low-hanging clouds. The quote is “We can choose to take responsibility for our thoughts and our words. We are in control. When we stop thinking of ourselves as “poor, unhealthy, tired, or depressed…” we can take small manageable steps in the direction we want to go.” ~Mel Scott

Have a Happy Monday and I hope to visit you soon!! ~Steph

  1. So great quote,
    Thank you so much for sharing.

    All the best, <3

    1. It’s one of my favorites. Thank you I’ll have to let Mel Scott know. 😀

  2. Love the quote. I will add it to my collection. My best to you on your online store and I will be visiting it.

  3. Love the quote Steph! I will add this to my collection. My best to you on your online store.

    1. Awe, thank you Wendy! 😀

  4. All the best with your online store. What will you be selling?

    1. Novelty items like Tees, Tanks, Mugs, Totes, etc. The store is called Abigail Style and of course features Abigail with some fun slogans on the cane and confidence.

      1. Sounds cool. Will check it out when it’s up and running. All best!

      2. I’m afraid I couldn’t find it online Steph. Surprisingly, or perhaps not so surprisingly, there are a number of Abigail Style fashions et al but I couldn’t find the novelty store. Could you give the full URL please?

      3. Hi Wendy, the address is but the store is not yet open to the public as I still finalizing a few things behind the scenes. Since I’m now officially behind schedule (I was hoping to open last week) I’m working furiously to get back on track and you can rest assured it will happen very soon :D. Thank you so much for your interest.

  5. Your online store! Wow! Can’t wait to hear more.

    1. Thank you!! I’m pretty excited and it’s also nerve wracking at the same time but it’s all good.

  6. Well that does it. I am now done with pity parties! I realize now that I’ve been investing far too much time in them. But, as for your online store, I have no doubt it will prove to be a success, Stephanae. When people fuss over something they have a passion for—as time consuming as it may be—it illustrates where they’re priorities are. So, how could it not be a success! ‘o)

    1. Gee I sure hope you’re right Paul because this is something I just have to do.

      1. Trust me, it’s going to work. Good vibes, Steph. ‘o)

      2. Thx Paul!!! I could just hug you 😀

      3. Virtual hugs are good to. :O)

  7. Steph, that little message is much appreciated this morning. I was just about to organize an impromptu pity party for myself when your post came along. Good timing. I suspect my blogging will slow its roll a bit as I continue to investigate some income opportunities as well. Best of luck and keep in touch, Bruce B.

    1. Bruce I’m glad to hear that the timing of this message was on target. While I wish you the best of luck in your financial endeavors I hope that we will still hear from you.

  8. Loved this ^_^

    1. Thank you. While Mel may have addressed a targeted group of people, the beauty of it is that it is applicable to everyone.

  9. Wow you have been busy. Impressive! Congrats!

    1. Thank you Caroline. Just hoping I can pull it off.

  10. Congrats on your online store.. good luck!

  11. It gets to be a bad habit to think of ourselves as “poor, unhealthy, tired, or depressed.” At least, that’s the way it sometimes is with me. The quote’s a useful reminder that there are steps I can take to improve my situation. 🙂

    1. Yes it is Bun. There’s been times I’ve been so good at hosting pity parties I thought for a minute there “hmmm, how can I make a living at this” Then clarity would settle in and I’d come to my senses, thank goodness!

      1. Hahaha! I love the idea as making a living as a pity party coordinator. I’ve obviously missed my calling. 🙂

  12. The life of a cyber shop keeper is always busy. Hang in there!

    1. Thank you Tony! This is my first foray into the world of onli e sales. Just trying to keep what little sanity I have left.
