Our Year 2021
The year 2021 was again a very special challenge for everyone. I also had my ups and downs. However, Doll Moon has developed great, not only regarding our store and design but also my personal collection has changed.
Small steps in the right direction.
Pat yourself on the back? – Of course!
At the end of every year you like to think about what you have achieved in the past year. Even if it sometimes seems like self-congratulation, I find such a review meaningful.
You can pat yourself on the back! As long as you do not become arrogant, it is even important. Time passes so quickly and races past us. Stop for a moment, recharge your batteries, look back and see how far you have come. Without getting stuck in the past.
This can give you drive and motivate you! Especially helpful when you are not doing so well.
Work and frustration
I would like to give everyone an honest and well-intentioned tip along the way. From my own experience I can say that the Doll Moon Store was hard work. I have invested a lot of time, shed tears and there were moments when I was about to quit it all together.
It is not easy to open a store, especially in Germany many stones are put in the way. Risk, sleepless nights were not as rare as you might think with a small business.
Do I just want flame? Maybe a little. But the basic idea is: Nothing flies to you by itself. You have to take the first step.
Effort, time and motivation are important! Don’t give up and follow your dreams even if it seems hard sometimes. They are an important part of us.
The “right” goal in mind
Every person is different, has their own desires and dreams. These can change or develop over the years. And that is quite normal! What the “right” goal is you can only answer yourself. There is no template or rule for this. A small list of ideas for the next year can help, but is not a must.
There is no shame in not meeting these goals or in changing them over the course of the year.
What we have achieved in 2021
✔AssortmentExpansion at Doll Moon
This is what we have done beside our customs also eyes, wigs and more went online into the store.
✔ Improve my face-ups and modding skills
Of course I still have a lot to learn but I think I just improved with the face-ups.
✔ New home for my boyfriend and me
We found a great little house for us and moved in early 2021!
✔ / X More self-love and understanding when something doesn’t work out that way.
Yes, and no. I think also in 2021 I have made a lot of things too difficult for myself. But I am on the right path.
X Not letting the IG algorithm annoy me so much anymore.
Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way. I still got too annoyed. But to exhibit the preview of the Like numbers was a great decision.
X do my Doll Profiles & Backstories
I got some stuff down in December but it wasn’t quite enough for the finished profiles and stories. Although we have Kronos Story somewhat revealed in the past year.
Start X “Make Wish Project
It was not enough for this project. Maybe the idea will be put on ice for the time being.
