Since I moved into my office, it has leaked every time it rained. There was so much to like about the space that I overlooked that defect, but was always mildly bothered by it. Two other practitioners, that have offices next to mine, had some issues too (like no heat for days in the middle of January!).
Talk started about moving into a new space together. I really didn’t want to move again but was at least open to the idea. Last Friday I mentioned this to a friend and she said, “What about Bean Heads?” Bean Heads was a wonderful cafe that closed a few years ago and the building has been for sale ever since. Our community still misses it.
We called Bill (the owner of the building) to see if he would be interested in renting the offices upstairs and all met on Sunday. It was a unanimous YES! There are 3 offices and a great waiting area. As we walked through each office, I kept thinking that any one would be fine for me. When we came to the front (with the 4 great windows) my heart jumped. I loved it but didn’t say anything…it just seemed “greedy” to say, “By the way, I want the biggest office!’ As the 3 of us looked at the space, each had their “secret” favorite (no one wanting to say anything and step on the other’s toes) and each was different…the other two women hoped that I would want the larger front office with all of the windows!
When things work like this; so easy, smooth…almost effortless, I am reminded that all things work for good when we trust in something greater than ourselves, in a power that has only benevolent, expansive energy. I heard a wonderful expression once: “What you are looking for, is also looking for you!”
P.S. We are going to have an Open House in mid-July. I’ll post that here in case you are in the area!
