Break out!

I'm stressing. My face knows it and, in turn, the world knows it (or they think that I am a woman with major hormonal issues...which may be true as well).

I was told this week that the other LMT that I rent space with will not be resigning our lease. The lease needs to be resigned by May 1st and this puts me in a little bit of a scary position...

Here in Wolfeboro, finding prime real estate at a reasonable rate is VERY lucky and I have found it with this place. We are right on the water, ample parking, ground floor entrance, quiet (mostly) and INEXPENSIVE! I pay less than $300 a month (for my half) with everything included. You can't find that in town at that price!

Between now and the end of April I need to find someone that fits my personality and the extra space. I know who I want, just not sure they want what I want right now (does that make sense). I know someone who would work, just not sure I want them. Argh!

I am ready to separate myself from the people I have been working with, so this is not all bad. I have worked with/under them since I first got out of school. While, mostly, it was incredibly helpful to my career, there are things that I am ready to be rid of.

I know that I can make it on my own without having to use someone else's name to get it. My clients love and respect me and my work. I am confident in my ability to make this happen.

I am trying really hard to have faith...it is really hard to feel so not in control! And like I have mentioned in previous posts, I want what I want when I want it - and now!

Big changes coming my way and I am ready for it - I think :)

Hang in there, you can make it happen... you've already made so many strides in becoming a reputable LMT.

Things usually seem to fall into place, and if not, it may be a struggle but where there's a will there's a way! Erica, I know you have much will!

It does sound scary and stressful, but maybe it is time for you to "break out" into your own.

Hey there from a lurker. Sound like this is your shot its your chance to strike out on your own! Here is a nice little quote I had kicking around give it some thought.

Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don't let them scare you unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.

Alas I never got who said it when I wrote it down but its good and seems to apply.

Good luck....
