Today, I want to share a core foundation of my life that I ALWAYS try to live by. It’s something that helps me not freak out when things aren’t going my way.
Sometimes it can feel like you are faced with challenge after challenge, no matter what you do. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve been seeing a lot about how we have been moving one of our Playa Bowls.
Here’s the backstory:
We opened our first Playa Bowls location back in November 2018. We have always known the landlord intended to knock down the building and rebuild it, we just didn’t know when. Well, this past spring, we got the official notification that he intended to knock down the building as early as the summer, so we needed to figure out what we were going to do.
Keith was definitely more concerned about finding a location than I was. I genuinely believed in my heart that this was a good thing. Was it ideal? No, but I looked at it as an opportunity to be in a newer building, redesign it so it can operate efficiently, and maybe even have a lower rent.
Fast forward to how this all played out. The landlord offered us to open up in an old Panera temporarily right next to the building he owned, which meant we didn’t have to shut down for a few months. At the same time, we were working with our real estate team and it ended up that right across the street from our existing spot, there was going to be a building available. It was perfect and we were able to take ownership of that building in August.
What has been so interesting to remember is that there are so many times that we could’ve freaked out in this process and been really negative. It was such a reminder that life is rigged in your favor. All of these things that are happening are not happening to you, they are happening for you.
Instead of having to shut down, we had the opportunity to pop up in a location right next door. It worked out even better than we could have imagined. So, look for the opportunity, the lesson, the growth, and it may not happen right away. It could take you a couple of months or even a couple of years to realize.
While this is a situation I could’ve easily freaked out about, I always go back to this core foundation.
It’s KEY to ensuring that you don’t lose your shit when things aren’t working out the way you want them to, but it’s also key in helping you see that maybe they actually ARE!!!
