I'm in the process of moving from one chapter in my life to another. For the past nine months, I've had my own store in Hamilton. This has been an absolutely fulfilling experience for me. However, Kevin and I have realized that parenthood is not that far off for us, and we have some other things we'd like to accomplish that we were not able to do while running a store. So, we're selling our business. We're moving on. It's time for a new chapter.
Everyone keeps asking me: 'So, what are you going to do now?' ...and to be honest, I really don't know. Our aim in selling the business was to simply our lives, and find a way to relax and live in 'shalom'. We want to be able to enjoy life, with minimal stress. We want to have the time to explore our great city, and spend time with our friends and family. I want time to clean my house, and hang my laundry on the line. We want to pay off school debt, and ready ourselves for children. We want to contribute to the healing and restoration that is taking place in Hamilton. We have a few projects under wraps, that we'd like to have time and energy to focus on. So...who knows how I'll spend the next few months and years.
Today I was inspired by this post. I've never been a career-driven woman, and my passion has always been to have children, and to do good for my city, but I am very much looking forward to finding a meaningful job, where I can really utilize my gifts. The prospect of a job like this is very exciting. I'll keep you updated, as I discover where the job-searching process takes me.
