Jan 29th 2011 Blog #11 Confessions and dreams of a middle age woman
So I think I have a plan Tania…. Here goes… I was laying in bed unable to sleep, feeling so down for like the 100th time this month… thinking “God what in the world is going on?’ I had a discussion with ‘the man’ that does the hiring for this district and basically he made it pretty clear to me that unless a plague moves through the area… don’t expect to get hired! Well, I know he doesn’t speak for God but it was pretty discouraging. It was also the birth date we lost our little Joseph so all in all the 27th was pretty awful… hence I didn’t blog my negativity.
So back to my story… I’m laying in bed pretty much feeling sorry for myself and thinking God has abandoned me. Then at 3 o’clock in the morning when all great inspirations happen, it came to me! “open a 2nd hand clothing store” A really groovy, upscale, boutique style store. I was so excited I could not sleep. I came downstairs, and started an advert and business plan. I thought if I waited till the morning my midnight inspiration might have left me. Interestingly, I phoned my sister today to tell her about it and ask if she wanted to do it together and she starts laughing! She tells me that this week she went out for coffee with her man and told him she wanted to start a business…perhaps a 2nd hand clothing store… and maybe call it ‘my sisters closet’… funny because I thought of the name ‘sisters’… how is that for coincidence?
I swear neither of us had talked about a clothing store ever before!
So… it’s not real estate but it is a business and it would engage me. I’m really excited. I’m heading out to the library to get a book on starting a business. I’m motivated for change Tania. I’m woman… see me charge… jk. J
You’ve heard my confession and dream… lets see what happens.
