I’m sleeping on my floor – well, thanks to Angel on an air mattress but never the less the floor. Perhaps you may think that I am doing an Ode to Van Gogh – who always slept on the floor, he didn’t need those types of material items in his life, a tortured artist he truly was.
But alas, no, it is not that either. I wanted new bedroom furniture but would not buy any until I sold mine – and I did. Didn’t think that it would sell so quickly, or that it would take me 2 weeks to find the perfect bed – it took me 10 minutes to find the ultimate mattress however. And when I get that new gem of sleeping goodness I cannot wait to spend my first night on it. The bed will come, in 2 weeks.
Angel and I can do nothing but laugh at how this all came in to place, that I live on the floor of my room and yet – it’s still humbling. I’ve had a week, one of those weeks that no matter what you do – nothing is going your way or turning out right. I lost internet connection at my house at the same time that my blackberry stopped working. My favorite coffee cup broke this morning and after one of my meetings I cried (which is totally not characteristic of me) I have decided that the planets are not currently in line.
But, at the same time, I know that this is a test. Call me crazy but when you become an entrepreneur after awhile you realize that throughout your journey you will always be tested – perhaps for something bigger that is coming down the road or it’s just another layer on your already thick skin that needs to happen.
No matter what, this past week has been a test and I’m not sure that I passed. After a few hours I finally figured out how to get internet and spending some time on the phone with Blackberry I finally fixed. I got a new coffee cup which is waiting for it’s first cup of java tomorrow morning.
In life, when it all seems like nothing is going well, think of all of the positive. If you can’t gain perspective, find a way to gain it. Some how sleep on the floor gives me a whole new perspective of life and what to appreciate.
