My report on the ‘project’ for the end of this week involves a bit of a climatic turn….
This will be difficult to expand upon since I can’t divulge any particulars. Once again, my ability to keep a secret is strengthening. In order to not spill the beans, all I will say is that a portion of the fabulous idea the ‘project’ is based upon is now out there in the world. When I first learned this, my heart sank and the butterflies in my stomach invited every aunt, uncle and cousin to join in on their flight.
At first, I wondered it if this would bring everything to a screeching halt. Rude and doubtful thoughts ran through my mind, “See, you were a fool to think this was possible…it was too good to be true!” Yada, yada, yada.
After I RSVP’d that I would be attending Melody’s Pity Party, I changed my mind, picked my self-esteem up from the floor, brushed off the negative self-talk, then chucked the invitation in the trash paper shredder. You could say I pulled an SNL Stuart Smalley…”The project is good enough, it’s smart enough and doggone it, people will LOVE it!” (Right now, some of you youngins are Googling Stuart Smalley.)
This is just a speed bump that will not slow the project down, but instead allow for an astute pause to refine my view of the big picture. The project has an exceptionally finer concept with superior options….and I’m not one to shy away from competition. Truth be told, I thrive on competition, but let’s not encourage too much of it, OK?
This new element proves that the project IS a great idea. I’ll stand on that.
As my husband put it, “Things happen so you can blog about it, remember? And besides, every great story needs a climax.”
I’m strappin’ on my highest heels, throwing on the pearls (because us tall girls not only accessorize, but still like to wear 4 inch heels from time to time) and marching into the battle which will lead to next chapter of this adventure.
Someone queue the orchestra to begin dramatic crescendo…
