Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver. --Ayn Rand
This is a quote that someone included in the card they sent me last week. It along with her donation toward the funding of a new Sweet Bee Trailer, combined with SO MANY WONDERFUL supportive encouraging people has left me feeling HAPPY! You may think "How could you be happy after being sad from loosing part of your business?!" Well, I'll explain.
This event has reminded me why I decided to jump off that bridge and start my own business. LOVE. Yep, pure and simple! I love baking. I love sweets. I love people. I love the experience of someone enjoying that treat I made. And most importantly, I finally love ME. I finally love myself enough to be willing to take a risk on me and what I love. Risk following a long time dream. Be vulnerable and willing to fail. I didn't want to wait any longer. I couldn't be told NO another time.
So, as you out there have reminded me "As one door closes, another one opens". Yes, I find that very true. It's also been a good time to step back, breathe and listen.
Thank you for reminding me to NOT GIVE UP!! and to keep plugging away at my dream. Thank you for reminding me that there's so much more good than bad in the world. At the end of the day, I believe we're all looking and working for the same thing. LOVE. and. ACCEPTANCE. so thank you.
