2013, What a year. December 31 2013

looking back it 2013 seemed to have pass by in the blink of an eye, and here we are on the brink of the eve of  waving good night to 2013 and saying good morning to 2014. 
2013 was a trying tough year for Cwtchy Cwtchy, another year in which I was presented with more strings to add to my bow, some of these strings were presented in the cruelest of ways.
My understanding of the fashion industry is expanding week by week month by month year by year, I do believe it is an industry where learning will never stop, it changes rapidly, its hard to keep up. 
Optimism is one of my golden keys I use in my every day life, but it is also used in business. I do wonder had I not had this ability to remain optimistic would i have been defeated.
I'm strangely thankful for those who have deceived and taken advantage of my sincere business judgments, as this has shown me the dirty side of the industry which I have needed to see. This isn't something I was taught to deal with as I am coasting along on life experiences and certain lessons I have had to learn to gain progression, each and everyone are blessings in disguises, valuable experiences if not assets in which I can invested in to my knowledge bank in business.   
You can't buy experiences like these, and experiences like these are ones which shouldn't be forgotten as they could  be the saviour of your future judgments with in your business.  
                                            Replace the negative mind set with the positivity, it's all good and carry on.
