The gym I work out at first thing in the morning is in the middle of a strip center. When I parked, I did so in front of a vacant store front with a big "for lease" sign out front. When I went to leave, I sat in front of that and stared and thought. I thought of what I would make of that space if I were to rent it, ideas for small businesses, etc. Then I thought about how appropriate that was to where I am in my life right now.
I felt that I was not in the right place employment-wise, that my job was not the right fit for me. This means I find myself in the position of asking, so what do I do now? What do I want to do? How do I want to do it? I am vacating apart of my life. There is a feeling of emptiness and sadness with that, but there is also the feeling of promise and potential. There is hope for something better, something I've always wanted.
That little shop looks kind of sad sitting there empty. But who knows what is in it's future? Who knows what will fill it next? And who knows what is in store for me? I'm determined that whatever it is, it's going to be wonderful!
