Testing 1..2…3

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.

To success,

My Life’s Recap

It’s another new year! And I can honestly tell you that I have no idea where 2009 went. I can actually remember the beginning of 2009 and then before I knew it I lost track of time and
*poof* it’s over. I think that the 2 biggest things that occurred in 2009 was the new office, then another new office and the addition of Angel. After a 2 year sick of each other break she came on board to help grow my company and we’ve been non-stop ever since!

I’m moving again this year, I moved in 2009, in 2008 – twice and in 2007. I’m so exhausted of packing and moving I only hope that the next place I land I will be less inclined to move again. Renting out my house was the best thing I could have done 4 years ago – now I can still own something but at the same time have more flexibility to live where I want to live.

I finally got to take a vacation after 10 years and went to Napa Valley with my dad. That was an amazing trip which has inspired me to take more me time and take trips. With the ability to take my laptop and go I look at all the possibilities of travel and expanding in to as many other states as possible.

I feel that 2010 is going to be a great year, I can’t say best ever because they have all been great and full of growth. I have grown and learned a lot. There are still many things that I need to work on, relaxing and taking a breath every now and again is definitely something that needs to be worked on!

I get to do what I love every day, for people that are amazing and doing amazing things. I feel honored to have what I have. I feel that us as a society get all caught up in the negativity or the things that go wrong we forget about what we have and where we have grown from.

To much success!
