Leap of Faith
Tomorrow is my last day at Princeton Paper Source. Am I sad........yes!!!! Am I glad..........yes!!! I absolutely loved my job. This was a hard decision. There are many reasons big and small..........and they don't really matter. I have decided to lease a space (signed the lease yesterday) in Asbury Park. It will be a studio/gallery/gift store. This is a lifelong dream come true. I grew up 4 blocks from the beach. But, you would find me in the heat of the summer with a table in front of my house selling lemonade and my old comic books. When I told my daughter she squealed with delight.........almost as loud as the first Christmas my children got their first Nintendo. My mom has helped make this possible and I can't wait for her to see all of my dreams come to life. The space is right next to where my niece has a shop.....I saw it a couple of months ago. Every morning I would wake up and have it decorated and full of merchandise. I couldn't get it out of my head. When we went to see Ian at the Stone Pony........I asked my niece Debbie if the space was still empty...with a big smile she shook her head yes. This is a big thrill, but at the same time I am afraid of failure........but, this has been the answer to......."What would you do if you knew you would not fail" question for a very long time. I am taking a leap of faith and could really use your prayers and good wishes.
