I can't begin to tell you the feelings I had this afternoon after a long day at work. My motivation was shot and I was tired of dealing with "stuff". Well, I had to run by the space (a.k.a.- new office) after work to get some supplies... Much to my surprise it was framed out. That means the beginning of the walls were up.
Excitement, power boost, happiness, tears- these were the things I immediately felt. THIS IS REAL. I am going to do this- to be a business owner with my own future and others in my hands. It has taken 6 years to get to the point I was ready and it is a mere 45 days away. The fear that I once felt has now been replaced with hope and happiness.
On the wall of the office a saying was left from the previous tenant that summed it all up- "Hope is the new happiness." Over the past few years I have debated on whether Kansas City and I really meshed. Honestly, I didn't know if this was where I wanted to be in life. No more guessing, I'm embracing my past, present and future.
There will be ups and downs but overall, I have found my home and it is here. Welcome home.
