I was speaking to my hairdresser today about the fact I want to open a bookshop in the village and she was so positive about it that it made me take a step back and really think about it. My friends have all been supportive of the idea in the past but much as that's appreciated it's always been coloured by the fact that they/you are my friends and as such will say things I want to hear. The girl today, I'd never spoken to her before today and yet she was excited about the idea. (Bizarrely enough my family doesn't want me to do it - well my sister doesn't anyway.)
So I'm going to do it.
I'm scared, I don't know where I'm going to get the money from or how to even start building a business plan, but I am going to do it. This time next year I will either be in the position of running my own business or be able to say "at least I tried".
I really am quite scared about this but also more optimistic and... content than I have been in years.
Oh - and for Serenity fans? There's at least two different trailers on UK tv right now - I've seen both of them on Living and C4 at various points today
