We have chairs…We have tables and a whole lot more…Our bright, shiney open space provides you with a blank canvas for you to express and share your magic with the world…
The origin is based in kismet, and the evolution organic. For years, we had dreamed of having a place of our own. Walking through the front door of 10590 Pico Boulevard felt like stepping into that vision. There was something magical about the space. It was bright with high ceilings, a small loft space upstairs and sitting room in back and it was in West LA…A community we had been a part of for years with SoccerKidsUSA.
It didn't take long for us to decide we were going for it…We spoke to the property manager, submitted the paperwork, and we were on our way! We kept the news to ourselves, with the intention of sharing once we knew it was ours. It was hard to hold back…Justin, Elsie & I were SOOOOOO excited!
And then it happened… Everything stopped.
As time passed, fear and worry began to kick in. I could see it…FEEL it, and I didn’t understand why this was happening or should I say not happening. I never wanted anything so badly and as each day passed, I found myself obsessively looking at the phone, unconsciously saying: ‘Come on, Bessi’…‘Come on, Bessi’…
I was beyond grateful for my upcoming appointment with Dr. Sadeghi... I knew if anyone could help me understand what was going on, it would be him. Sitting in his office, I shared my story and like he always does he shared his wisdom. He pulled out his black sharpie, a blank piece of paper and gave me a lesson in the porosity of soil. As he drew his picture he started to explain that when soil has holes in it…Porous, when it rains, the soil becomes moist, an environment for growth is created. If the soil is dense, compacted when the rain comes, the ground above floods and below stays dry and growth is restricted. Perhaps I should consider “letting go”…finding space in me, like the flow I find when dancing. My desire was so strong, that I had become constricted both in thought and body. I was trying to control the outcome and I wasn't trusting the process…
I drove home that day, reflecting on our conversation. When I saw Justin and Elsie, shared what I had learned, we decided to surrender…
2 days later, the text came in…10590 Pico Boulevard was ours :-)
Aunt Bessi is a symbol for all of us to share… She reminds us to trust the process, stay open and to believe in our dreams~
With Aunt Bessi LOVE~
