Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021!
This is the last note I post here in 2020! It has been an undeniably eventful year for many of us. Some believe 2021 is start of an era, but isn’t every year?
2020 has been historical. A chain of events that usually happen throughout decades happened within months.
If you have survived this year and came out of it, then you know how strong you are. After all that has happened, we know well that all we have is hope in a better future.
Hope is what has brought the human nation forward in the last few thousands of years. The world has probably seen worse years than 2020 and it has continued to survive. We are not the first or last to be put through a test.
I had to rethink a lot of things in 2020. Made some serious changes in Narosib because the show must go on no matter what, and I am more than ever thankful to everyone who chose to buy from Narosib and other independent businesses.
We are there thanks to mindful, conscious ethical shoppers like you who care about the independent makers and what they stand for.
One of the best decisions I made in 2020 for Narosib was launching the Planners. It has opened my eyes to a whole new world and made me think more about my own journey and how I can have better impact on the busy woman’s daily lives.
Today I know about Narosib’s wonderful customers more than ever, the ambitious professional women that I sometimes had the honour to chat and befriend with. Thank you for sharing your feedback with me and show me the way.
I have learned that whatever I create here has to align with my highest purpose. But for a long while I did not exactly know what actually my true purpose was. Purpose is not a goal or a milestone or just some nice quote about saving the world. I too needed time to find out how I want to be of service to this world and make an actual impact.
2020 was tough but pushed me towards an expedited self-discovery journey and as strange as it sounds I am grateful.
Now that the last chapter of year 2020 is coming to an end as the tradition of every year I sit down and journal about what I want next year. I usually like to choose a mantra for the next year.
For 2021 my mantra is “Be yourself, be at service, create impact”. It sounds cheesy, I know but it will need me to come over a lot of my mental blocks and fears.
But I am finally ready for it (had some practice in 2020!) I have promised myself to be more visible, collaborate more with my favourite people and contribute to sharing more about my journey of personal development with others. Knowing that some of my favourite people are reading these lines I am ready to be held accountable.
I wish everyone a wonderful year 2021. I am hopeful it will be great.
Take care and see you next year,
Sara , The founder of Narosib
