The best laid plans

So, this morning I was feeling grumpy and underappriciated by the manager at work who expects me to deliver the world, yesterday. But as the day wore on, and I was very busy, I got over my initial pissiness and was just happy to be constantly busy. Really. So much that i feel like I didn't get anything accomplished today.

THEN, after work, I went to the floral shop who's owner I met the other day at my open house, and, I am all giddy, not because I have serious potential for sales to her business, but because I made a new friend. The kind where we just spent an hour chatting and giggling and comparing stories about that it is like to be in your late twenties and single, and oh my aren't men a pain in the butt.
She's the kind of person I will never feel weird abot popping in to visit. I haven't felt this "new friend" joy in a long time. I don't make friends easily. Partially because I don't get out of my usual circles much, and partially because I am very picky about who I allow into my inner self. Most people are kept at a disance. Not so, her. Or her mom, who was also at the store. So now I am all fired up, and it feels really great.

I've found the hardest part of my business to be networking, because I'm not really good with others. It's taken a long time, but it feels so good when you finally "get there".

The Bible says, "To have friends, you must show yourself to be friendly."

Now that you got one, go after more. Go to another and another shop. You will find the blessing from this first business/friend relationship will give you the power to press through the non-business/jerk meetings.
