Oh the baby steps are so frustrating! Things are coming along at the shop but we have been fighting the wall repair. Today I was really happy to see we are moving in the right direction again, however slowly that may be. If everything goes according to plan we could be finished painting this week!
One of my top 10 least favorite things to do is pick out paint colors, fixtures, or anything that has to do with decorating. I am easily overwhelmed by the 50 shades of grey that I have to scan to pick a wall color but I think we have it narrowed down. I mentioned before that I'm going for an industrial look so I see a lot of those crisp colors. I also picked out the new awnings today. We will be removing the black ones on the front of the building (that I believe were original in 1969) and replacing them with a slate colored valance with darker charcoal trim.
So although it doesn't look like much, those baby steps will, in a couple weeks, turn into a huge transformation that someone who hasn't been following the progress all along will see as an overnight success. Isn't it funny how that happens? The ones who are not there for the tiny wins or the baby steps miss the best part of the story. Without the struggle, what is the win? Empty.
This reminds me of a note from the Universe I received.
