Back in the saddle again

Time does seem to fly doesn't it. Here it is almost April and my last post discussed Christmas season festivities!!!

The first quarter of 2009 has been, to some extent, a tiny bit tumultuous. As the year came to a close and I still had not found a source of income, decisions had to be made on what to do with my life. Strangely, this forced me to come face to face with my own personal commitment issues. Funny, how you can wander along in life not really thinking that you 'have' a particular issue until one day BAM - it is clear as day to you that you do.

Should I stay in this country? in this relationship? What about work? Should I do one thing or another? If I went back to Canada, should I live in this city? or that city? I found myself unwilling to make any of those decisions, as they would all mean that I was making a commitment... closing a door on the other options (to some extent). And it dawned on me that I had rarely made a full blown commitment to anything... that I am a person that likes to keep my options open.

When I've had a job, regardless of how much I've enjoyed it... I've always monitored the job ads... kept my eye open for something else, something better. When I've had a house, I've always looked at the real estate section... keeping my eye open for something better, something else. I'm not saying this is completely a bad thing... one won't find opportunity if one doesn't look for it. On the other hand....

Anyway.... after a few agonizing weeks (and one long distance therapy session) I made a decision... then spent a few more weeks struggling with that decision... but here I am. I am a full-blown partner in a business down here. I am an entrepreneur! Scary as hell.... but that's the decision I made.

Buena Vida Fitness Centre is scheduled to open on April 1, 2009.
