Fixing Bumps in the Road

Bumpity, bump, bump was my ride this morning. My normal 4 minute commute, I know, it’s a really long commute, became a 15 minute commute. Sigh! This is what happens when they tear apart the road that leads you to and from your house. The good side was I got a massage on my way to work from all the bumps. We’ll see how long it takes for them to finish this project seeing as we live in Slow  Vannah. Lots of trucks and people, not sure how much work is actually getting done.

This, of course, leads me to the very predictable segway into how life is full of bumps and, with time, will smooth out. Blah! Blah! Blah! I could go on and on about how we all run across rough ground but we will eventually find our footing. I could talk about how this has made me a stronger and better person. All of that is, once again, predictable and rather trite.

Instead, let’s realize that bumps in the road are immensely annoying. Nothing like travelling down the road getting jostled around like a rag doll. Hitting another bump wondering if you should be making an appointment with the chiropractor as your spine is now out of alignment. Hitting so many bumps in a row that you can hardly wait to find a restroom. This is the reality of bumps.

You wish that other people would just hurry up and fix the bumps. If they are working of fixing them, it seems to take them forever. There are times that we do not wish to be patient, despite it being a virtue.

My store is like a road and it has been very bumpy. I’ve been filling in the pot holes trying to smooth things out. That has not been working so I’ve been working on repaving the entire process. My patience is waning as the people I need to help me, customers, have not shown up to work.  

(insert Rhianna dance break, cause why not?)

So, I continue to work on the repaving and getting rid of the annoying bumps; new products, new partnerships, shaking up my image as a natural retailer. I have to have faith, and somedays that is hard, that the road will eventually smooth out, the customers will show up, and my dream of a small retail store in Savannah will become a reality.

It has to, right?!

Until next time,

                Have a Healthy Day!!
