After some delays I got the word I would get the key to our new space tomorrow. On the way home I put on my “rock out” playlist to enjoy the moment. This song came on and I got emotional. I started my practice in 1 room on Dumbarton Rd over the new year into 2015. I grew to 3 rooms there and then in early 2017 moved to our current office on Hilliard - adding a suite in October 2017. We are now moving to a larger space that meets our vision. So why the tears?
I‘m not a business person by training or education. This is hard for me. I have had to make big mistakes to learn lessons. Move forward, move back, regroup and start again. These lyrics really spoke to me...
I won't give up, no, I won't give in 'Til I reach the end And then I'll start again. No, I won't leave I wanna try everything, I wanna try even though I could fail.
I have had to come to terms with my strengths and my weaknesses. Trust others, rely on others, never easy for me. I have always just wanted to help make the lives of adoptees and their families more joyful. This journey is simply taking shape and the fun is just beginning.
Shakira says it well, sing it with me!
