“How do you like your eggs?”
This is my favorite line from The Runaway Bride.
How do you know what you like if you don’t know what your favorite eggs are in the first place? I have spent the better part of 4 years trying to work through this analogy/question, because it pertains to everything in my new life.
In 2017, when I started creating LOLA, my dream was to help people in a time they needed it most. Before, during and after a loss.
However, the business side of building a dream means:
I am living in 2 different worlds. The LOLA world where my heart is always full because I am in the depths with families, helping them during the darkest of times and then in the business world dealing with vendors, contracts and the administration of LOLA.
Sometimes finding vendors who really understand you can be difficult, it can be very much like learning what type of eggs you like.
I recently had an AHA moment! And I realized I needed to begin asking these questions when it came to the business side of my life. (heck even my personal side)
Has this person experienced a LOSS? Have they ever watched someone they LOVED Die and then not know if gravity is up or down?
I realized I had a new perspective on a new-criteria I needed to start including for LOLA and myself. If you haven’t experienced LOSS, you probably won’t ever understand me. YES, I was finding the type of eggs I like, and it is a process.
Being a business owner and widow brings many new challenges, but after almost four years I am finding out a lot about myself. When I was married to Carl, everything was scrambled eggs and in the challenging times Eggs Benedict…But now, I really Love Sunny Side Up eggs!
What kind of eggs do you like?
