So the big news I was waiting on was a possible buyer for my cafe. And after many offers, much back and forth and high hopes, I have sold the cafe as of Monday, August 8th. It is such a relief, as some of you may know, to no longer have the stress of everyday small business ownership. I will be training the new owner today and hopefully that is all. He wants me to stay through Saturday, but I just really want to move on, ya know? The cafe gave me so much these last two years. It’s given me a new perspective, lots of new friends and the chance to challenge myself everyday and watch what I can do with sheer determination!
Now the big question on everyone’s lips: What are ya gonna do now? And my answer: I don’t know, dude! Ha-ha!
Honestly? I just wanna find a nice job with a decent, but more importantly, steady paycheck. The cafe wasn’t a dream of mine, but a project I felt compelled to complete. That behind me, I feel more free to follow whatever dreams do pop up or come to mind. I have lots of ideas, many of them fat related, but for now money and stability are on my brain. My husband wants to move up to the Santa Cruz mountains and I am seriously considering that as a possibility now. To be surrounded by redwood trees? Hmm, that doesn’t sound so bad at all!
I would like to thank you all for your support. I know I’ve had some mini breakdowns and y’all have helped me through that so much! Thank you to those who were able to come visit me at the cafe and to those who wanted to. Thank you all! <3
It is bittersweet of course. I truly surprised myself by accomplishing exactly what I set out to do. I hadn’t done any of that or anything like that before. It just goes to show what can happen when you are passionate and willing to step outside of your comfort zone. But I could not have done it had I not discovered and embraced fat acceptance/liberation wholly and completely! It gave me the confidence to trust in myself and the support of so many wonderful people all over the world. And they say fat is bad? Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Seems it’s done nothing but good for me, but hey, I could be the exception.
Thanks again! *Hugs*
