I’m reminded of a time about 14 years ago when I was a senior year in high school, taking the ACT test..

I felt as if I had been sitting in that testing-seat FOOOOREEEVVEERRR.

And in that moment I realized….

I still had a bajillion questions to answer and, like, two more hours of test-taking-hell.

I won’t forget it.

And I won’t forget the tiny tear that fell from my cheek onto my multiple choice answer sheet. 

The feeling was exasperation.

And that feeling is similar to what I’ve been dealing with lately…

As I duke it out with the gatekeepers of Amazon, there are metaphorical tears on my metaphorical answer sheet.

But here’s what I know despite my semi- exasperation: 

I can do hard things. 

This is hard, but I can do hard things.

Isn’t that great?

It’s been frustrating and it’s taken waaaay longer than I anticipated and I am not even sure HOW exactly it will get accomplished… and yet, I know for sure:

I can do hard things. 

For WEEKS now, I’ve been saying:

Our product is coming soon!

Our product is coming soon!

Our product is coming soon!

And, if you are like many of the people I am hearing from they don’t want it soon…. they want it now.

And we get it!

Really, we do.

Oh. My. How we get it.

It’s just that Amazon has us jumping through hoops we Did. Not. See. Coming.

If this isn’t a lesson in perseverance and tenacity, then I don’t know what is.

But I got through that ACT bologna and I will get through this “Amazon Test” and we will have our product available to buy as soon as physically possible.

Thank you, thank you for your interest and your support! AND! Don’t you ever forget it. Serisly. We can do hard things.
