Have you noticed how much more positive I am over the past few months? I made a conscious decision to look for the good in the hand that was dealt. Hey, sometimes no good exists, but I can still look for ways to cope and manage it. The simple truth is, sometimes I must deal with pure evil and those who represent it. It will not let this define me.
I attribute my change directly to getting excited about a few projects.
First, I’m practically busting at the seams to attend and take part in the Duke University event, Finding Consciousness. I have so much to learn (and offer) by spending a few days there later this month. The professionals that will be attending are the real deal. I’m so impressed by their credentials.
Then there’s the “Office” project, where I take Ryan “to work”. I want this so bad for both Ryan and myself. It’ll do each of us a world of good, yes, but allows us to give back to society in a meaningful way. Maybe our home will begin to feel more relaxing again by the mere fact that there will be more definition between tasks?
Unfortunately, I’m running into a major problem in pulling this off. That’s not to say I’m anywhere close throwing in the towel.
The problem? Finding space. Not a lot of space either. I can make this work with as little as 500 to 750 square feet.
Maybe I’m being too optimistic in believing there is a developer or owner who will donate (or deeply discount) the space. I know there is space out there that is sitting idle. My challenge is locating the people who can make the decision. Perhaps a realtor might have this insight? I tried doing this on my own, but just keep spinning my wheels. What I need is a caring company, like Koons Automotive who donated a van, to open their hearts. To see the business sense and reap the benefits in community goodwill.
My goal was to be occupying this space before the blooms of spring were on the trees. It still is, but it’s getting tight. Very tight. So tight it squeaks.
