But if you close your eyes, Does it almost feel like Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes, Does it almost feel like You’ve been here before? ~ Bastille
For day 15 of the June 1-30 challenge, of which I am WOEFULLY behind, we are to write 15 sentences. No more, no less. If you STILL haven’t found the challenge, go here. I usually do write longer stuff so this should be interesting.
Yesterday, I awoke, to an upsetting, tailspin throwing, unhappy surprise. My partner, my amazing partner I was so thrilled and lucky to find, quit. She found that working on the business, now that we’ve got extra work coming in, is too much for her. I can’t be upset with her, right?? She’s a great person and I hate starting over from scratch, but I’m no quitter so that is not an option.
Who needs Rose-colored glasses? Aside: They’ve actually developed these glasses for people that are colorblind (as are both my boys) and it refracts at different wavelengths, allowing them to see color. Pretty amazing!!
Luckily, I had just hired a great salesperson who is eager and excited and has some tech experience. I have a few people ready to do sales or help on the computer, but they certainly don’t have 30+ years of experience! I spent most of the day yesterday in a tailspin, but this morning I awoke, ready to take this on, to seize the day! I can do this! I didn’t want to do this, I didn’t want to do it on my own, but that doesn’t mean for a second I will stop!
Even if you don’t see it, it doesn’t mean you won’t eventually!
No matter what, this was my idea and, though I brought it to a few other people before Lydia, no one else seemed as excited. Even so, I can finish it and I can succeed. Now that I’ve started, there’s no going back for me. I have found people who are seeing things happen and, because of that, are willing to be there and help and work if I need them, willing to work on commission and keep me going.
Lucky for me, I’m an optimist! (By the way, the three main paragraphs and this previous sentence were 15!!)
There were so many good, optimistic pictures…. It was so hard to pick just a few! This tells me people WANT to be optimistic. CHOOSE optimism!
