Sometimes, we can have the best of intentions, and the most carefully laid out plans…and it seems fate has other plans. Many of those times, fate’s plans are much better than yours!
I was planning and searching for a second job. Something part-time, where I could work on evenings and weekends, to save up and pay off all of my debt. Nothing suitable was coming up. Then three nights ago, I was able to finally get started at our family business…families business, I should say. My husband’s partner’s wife has been putting in full time hours since long before the store opened, but because I have a full time job, I haven’t been able to do that. But now that we’re open to the public, more help is needed…that’s where I come in…and that’s where my plans for a part-time job get thwarted… or so I thought. For three nights now, I’ve been going there almost directly from work, and staying well past closing time….learning the program, the product, getting familiarized. And not only do I absolutely LOVE it, but this has now BECOME my part-time job, AND at the same time I’m helping to create a business which will help us achieve our goals!
So the lesson I learned this week is that when the wind blows, it’s not always to stop us…but maybe slow us down a little, and make us sway…. we just have to learn to bend where the wind blows, and things will be what they’re meant!
