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.


  1. I am so happy for you! You are a strong and powerful force, you will find a way to make it happen!
    Happy walls!

  2. Yay!! Yay!! Yay!! Welcome home! Congrats on the office progress! I, selfishly, am so happy you and KC have meshed. :)
