Somehow the DNA has changed from last year. A year fraught with financial highs and lows…no! Lows and lowers. But now things are straight and I’m feeling secure and happy again. I haven’t had the urge to write too much to the masses cause I was upset, but now good news and days ahead.
I’m traveling again at whirlwind speed. All in all this year has been pretty crazy…February in Portugal; a group trip to the south of France, Paris and Amsterdam that was so much fun we’re doing it again next year; a week on the West Coast with my 95.5 year old beautifully healthy mother. I’m sitting tight in my store for a few days here in Chicago and then off to Istanbul again.
I’m excited by my life. I awake with a certain anxiety…not the kind that makes you crazy and cry. But a feeling of “where to now?”, “did I pack everything I need?” , “Where am I supposed to go now?”, “What day is it?”. Part of all this has to do with an aging process I suppose. But I”m feeling really good these days.
I’ve always been spiritual, but I’m almost evangelical in my conversations…”Speak only the positives”, “I know you can’t help what you are thinking, but speak only the positives”, “Everything is in divine order”, “The best IS yet to come.” , “You will bring on what you believe to be true”, “Believe the best.” And the goods are coming. Everyday I get a little uplift from the atmosphere, someone comes in with a friend who now also loves the store; the kids had great sales while I was gone; my cats missed me and are so happy to see me back it brings tears to my eyes. They are so demonstrative and speaking of that a few ‘sailors’ are calling and hanging around.
