We’re slowly coming up onto our four-year anniversary and I’m in a bit of a daze. So much has happened from the beginning of the salon’s birth to this very point. We’ve had out fair share of staff turnover, rental issues, business development and then some. As if four years can pass without some sort of confusion, instability, laughter, tears, sorrow, joy… you get me right?
This past week, for some reason, really had me thinking of some of the decisions I’ve made and some of the goals I’ve set out for myself. What am I going to do about ‘this’ in six months? Where should we be as a business now? As a family? Where should I be as a wife and mother? Am I sort of in the area that I thought I would be in? Am I growing? Is the salon?
All these questions have had me reflecting on my life thus far. I’m not going to lie, I’m blessed and very fortunate. I have little to complain about and worry for. I am healthy, pseudo-wealthy (in life and love), and somewhat wise. Why do I need to reflect? Well, how about for the fact that I am a human being and far from perfect. I am still a small part of this great big ‘dance’ we partake in daily and I know that I can do more, be better, and try harder. I know that I can accomplish more and learn and learn and learn…
When was the last time you took a step back to take a look at where you are? When was the last time you reflected on your life? Is it something you do regularly or might this be a new thing for you? Think about it. Don’t think about it. The choice is yours.
