Happy Friday! Well, if you’re a returning friend (because here there are no visitors), you may have noticed a few changes here in the cafe. The new custom theme is courtesy of the brilliant Men With Pens. Any bugs, or errors are courtesy of yours truly! I am still unpacking boxes and moving things around so please bear with me while I make the place nice and comfy for you.
I am a big fan of change. I move my office and home around all the time. I find that the physical change somehow provides me with a new perspective and revitalizes my energy. However, I am aware that some changes can shake us from our comfortable positions and force us into unfamiliar patterns or routines. Rather than energizing, we may find ourselves initially drained and more than a little cranky. A new job, or a physical move immediately come to mind.
When I engage in a physical move I tend to do it fast. I hate the transition phase so clean and unpack everything immediately and put it away. I will work until I am so exhausted I can no longer stand but I will go to bed on fresh sheets with no boxes in the house. However, once moved, the decorating is never done. There is always something more to be planted, changed, painted, taken away, well you get the picture. Yet, it’s not a chore but a journey that is savored with each step.
I moved the blog from blogger to WordPress and that was the “let’s roll, get it done” phase. Now, I am taking my time to savor the decorating. So, I’ve tried to clean it up so that you have a comfy experience and don’t trip over boxes, but there’s still work to be done. I really and truly enjoy each and every one of you and hope that we can continue to entertain one another in this new space under the bamboo tree. And hey, there’s even room for more, so feel free to invite a friend or two. 🙂
