Next Project

Pondering

This pondering came about from an email invitation from the City of Raleigh to  Fwd: Apply for the New Impact Partner Grant, which I received just before reading the article Fwd: One Woman’s Journey on Dr. Bria White… and all that was a day AFTER writing the following in my notebook as I was thinking what do I really want to do… and telling myself I had no one to talk things out with now that Dad was gone. I have also been praying about things, thanking Jesus at every chance, speaking with my spiritual guides (Sisters, strangers – you know how you just ‘connect’ sometimes? daily readings…)

The Wish
A wish answered? I wrote down who I’d need to contact with the hope I would obtain a tiny street-front space in which to sew my banner products, teach sewing, and mentor youth entrepreneurs.

And Blessings

I do feel I have received blessings – some beyond belief- drop into my lap or run across the path I am constructing. I do question though, is this a blessing or the result of me being more open to finding opportunity, new acquaintances, continually remodeling my business model of 10+ years -but not into the monster it feels like at times; and dreaming of moving to the beach to repair boat and golf cart canvas, etc.  I have been told – even by the receptionist at the Dr’s office – to just accept the gift’ and stop questioning. Did I strengthen the receptive muscle with a marketing vitamin (CCCC, Dr. Wilen)?

I am working a project template to help me solidify the storefront idea… stay with me.
