What will I be when I grow up?

Life is changing again.  I know it tends to do that, but somehow I'm never prepared.  Last month one of my business partners decided to take a full time job.  Our small business just never has grown beyond a part time/hobby level, despite our best efforts.  Although no decision has yet been made, by January I expect we will close our business entirely.  I'm also thinking about closing my nonprofit consulting business, as it is truly nonprofit.  With the downturn in the economy, many organizations stopped using consultants.  I have requests to donate my skills, but paying gigs are rare. 

The journey I started 5 years ago hasn't ended up where I thought it would, but I certainly have learned a lot.  My many community board responsibilities are coming to an end, with the exception of school board. Life overall is looking like less meetings and more knitting.  January may find me back in the job hunt,which would be weird after so much flexibility. 

I feel unsettled and uncertain again.  Sports teams have rebuilding years-  I think my life is having one!  Maybe some knitting and Dr. Who will put things in perspective :-) 

Have a restful and happy weekend!

Knitting and Dr. Who is a good solution to almost anything. Also, chocolate is the answer. What was the question?

To everything, there is a season. Sometimes, there is a season to lie fallow and just be. Relish what you have. Count your marbles, organize your files and photos, make a list of the things that bring you joy, and pursue them. Knit.

This is your time to reassess. I'm sorry the business didn't work as well as you planned. I hope after the dust settles you can reincarnate it in maybe another form. It was a good idea, just not a good time.
