I came across the poster online at a time of my life which could be described as a crossroads. After a painful divorce, I found myself having to start over again. I had bought a condo and was working at Starbucks and found I wasn’t making ends meet. I had to sell my condo and so it happens the very day I accepted an offer on the condo, someone emailed me asking if I would be interested in taking over her bakery. I had started a cookie business out of my home and had always dreamed of having my own store. I decided to dive in without looking how deep the water is. Honestly the whole poster spoke to me but mainly the opening – this is your life! I was and still am scared to death but I don’t want to wake up when I’m sixty and wish I had tried. At least now my son sees me doing something I love and I want him to be as proud of me as I am of him. My poster is framed and hanging in the store. I look at it every morning.
I’m second from the left.
All the best and thank you!
