The Trinity House




Claws
At the Trinity House

I don't like moving. I live in the same house that I moved into when I married 33 years ago. But that doesn't mean I don't like change. I do. I like change a lot. My work environment is changing. It makes me sad that I am pushed to move, but once decided, my excitement for new experiences is climbing.


I have been very happy with all the ladies I work with, there are over 40 of us. It is rare that so many women can work together with minimum conflict. Note I wrote conflict, not drama. Drama is an integral part of such a large grouping. But my dissension is not so much with the drama as just needing to be in a place of stable ownership. My days of trying to help owners overcome their self-destructive patterns seems to be at an end. I am most certainly glad to help. But over the years, I have put my own desires and interests behind others in the name of helping them run their businesses successfully. To heck with what I want. Time and time again. The last time, nearly five years ago, I said never again. From now on, I run my business for me alone.


What happens next? Immediately I find myself in the same situation. What kind of karma am I trying to burn? What is up with the same scenario over and over. I have walked a way from three businesses with nothing while leaving the owners with what I have added. A great opportunity presented itself to me once I started looking, and I am going to take it. This time it is for me. Maybe this is the lesson of my karmic Groundhog Day.


I like this house. It is very similar to the one in which I live. The energy is calm and peaceful even though it is a bustling little business. The mighty Sacramento River runs to the back side of the building. My massage room is upstairs, on the river side of the house under the shade trees, where you see the windows on the roof. They are screened windows that can be opened when the weather is nice. And plants. I can have plants because they will get some light. I am looking forward to being in this space. I am looking forward to all of the great healing and energy work I can do here. Oh, yeah, it suits me!

I hope you enjoy your new space! My pattern in life- make myself so important to my employer that the business won't function without me, but remain just a paid employee and never get a big enough slice of the pie! Nice guys do finish last!!!

Very cute house. I'm just mad that you live so far away, I could do with some raki massagey sweet smelling aura nourishing karma right now. Good on you for having the spunk to go it alone. I wish I could but I haven't a clue what I could do that would pay the rent! He Otin, does bus driving pay? I have a feeling my 601 guy from Parramatta is going to be killed by his passengers . . .soon!

Dave King said...

Good on you. Go to it and enjoy it.

Leah said...

That is so thrilling for you! It's a lovely space. I just wish I lived closer and could be your client!

Brian Miller said...

Hope the move goes well for you! Cycles of change skip through my life like a needle on an old 45. leaving lots of scratches. a lot like Claws. Happy energy your way! weekend is coming!

Ronda, many blessings and wishes in your new home and business :)

Mrsupole said...

I want to wish you the best in your new endeavor. All will go well and it seems like you are going to like it because you will feel comfortable there. That is half the battle right there. You will do great and wish you were closer too. I could us a good massage ever day. Right here, just a little more to the right, down a little, oh yes that hits the spot. Sigh.

God bless.

Otin: My pattern is the same. Here. Do you like apple pie? It is your turn.

Baino: I'll be watching the news for the 601 Parramatta story. Sounds like a drive is on the way.

Dave: Thanks, I will enjoy it.

Leah: I would love having you as a client. Just think of the scope of our conversations.

Brian: Why is it that I always type "brain" first for your name and then have to change it? Freudian? Do you like your cycles of change? The scratches are what give character.

Subby: TY. You are so sweet.

Sherry: If you were my client, believe me, you wouldn't even have to direct me to that special spot. I would find it right away. Ahhhh.

Megan said...

I'm excited for you!

Megan said...

Oh. and p.s. that bit about drama, but not conflict? Spot on, sister.

Candie Bracci said...

I'm sure it's all going to be fine for you over there.Changes bring often positive things and it looks like one of them here.It's such a good feeling thant the one to work alone,for yourself,specially that helping others,you've already done your part,now it's your turn,it's time to think about yourself and your dream.Good for you.The best of luck.

VE said...

Congrats...you've been officially spoofed on my blog...

Ronda Laveen said...

Megan: Yeah, the is definitely a difference between drama and conflict. Some people are so attached to their own drama that I wonder how they get through life.

Candie: It seems like it will be a very positive move. Thanks for the luck.

VE: They hey you say. I've been spoofed? On my way you sneaky spoofer.

Don Jacobs said...

What do you mean you are moving??? I do like the house, the house has been may different things just in the eleven years I have been here. Talk about BALANCE, this really fits in with my latest blog, also try hanging on and see what happens. You need to balance and make the move.

It wil work out for the best, as it was meant to be.

Ronda Laveen said...

Lettuce: Isn't it funny how excitement and annoyance can tie so closely together?

Don: Yep, I'm moving. Sorry I didn't tell you at your last session but I just decided. Thanks for the encouragement.

Congratulations on your new space! After more than six years propping up the person who owned the last space where I worked, I got OUT of there and into the new space. It's not perfect either, but I enjoy the other women who work there (they are psychotherapists) and I've been content.

Now that Jake is gone I feel more changes ahead. I don't have to figure it out now, thank goodness.

Bravo for you!

p.s. I love Groundhog Day - one of my very favorite films of all time.

Ronda Laveen said...

Reya: Yes, I knew you moved in the spring. I realize no place is going to be perfect but centered is what I am hoping for in my work space. I'll just have to see how it goes. And I am sure there are more changes ahead for you. I am thinking of Jake a lot today with the memorial for MJ. He's been gone a week.
