The brilliant piece of advice I gave my friend last night. Truth be told, it sounded much better when spoken in Dutch.. But what I meant was stop wiggling around, stop refusing to choose! Just do it! As I told her that, I smiled. After hanging up the phone my smile turned into a laugh, a laugh at my own hypocrisy. Dude, who’s the one doing the ass wiggling???…..
Any way. This is it! 2014! The year in which I’ll achieve my goals! When I started this blog in October last year I set myself four goals and I got working on them. About half way through my personal “challenge” I have completed one, the first one..I have a home! And on my journey I have come to review the other 3 goals:
As you might know, besides finding a home, my business, my coffee shop was getting the most attention. Together with a coach I researched, planned, drafted. I contacted real estate agents, started dreaming up floor plans, began looking into finances. And then it dawned on me: this isn’t it. Wow! Talk about ass turning! Yes. My idea, my dream of having a coffee shop/cafe still exists. But whenever I visualise it, it always comes up with a palm tree, sea breeze, surf and a hammock. And Amsterdam, though sweet, does not provide the right setting. This does not mean that I have given up my goal! I still plan to be a successful & independent entrepreneur in 6 months time, just in a different way. I’m working on it. Behind the scene. And the coffee shop-cafe, I haven’t discarded it completely. I simply put it in the fridge.
What can I say? I’ll let Phil’s mum do the talking.
Ah, the dog..I’m afraid I’ve had to give up on this one. I’m not allowed a dog where I live. But, we have a cat. I guess the cat, Diego Fernandes, kind of substitutes the dog. It’ll do for now.
Right, so I’ve done some serious wiggling. Though I believe it’s been for the better. Setting these goals, researching and working hard has allowed me step closer to knowing what it is that I really want. Doing, reviewing, dreaming and daring to change course. Maybe a little bit of ass turning is alright, but in the end you’ve got to move!
Seems like a wise thought for the monday morning! Have a great week!
