Saturn seems to be residing in my zodiac these days.
There seems to be much tension around. There are a lot of things on my mind, and I feel so much disoriented with lots of negativity in the air.
Maggie Farah predicted a year full of challenges and risk for the Gemini! And she has been right so far. There has been no such challenges in my life since I finished my tawjihi! This year has been hard, with lots of loads at work, being allocated to different projects and getting more reposnsibilities by becoming a web developer in addition to my previous responsibilities as UI specialist. In addition, starting one’s small business seems not an easy task at all.
After some problems with the municipality to issue the licence which we haven’t yet get because it is pending on us to finish the decoration so that the health department can do their check up, we have face even a bigger challenge dealing with people to furnish the shop. We deligate all the matter to a relative of mine (lets name it X), who took all the responsibilities in return of an agreed amount of money.
Unfortunatly, the saying that you must never engage in business with a relative is true. I learnt it the hard way.
1. The project that supposed to end in a month, took 3 months so far and still needs some work.
2. The budget jumped 40% above what we had initially agreed on.
3. Nothing is finished completely and there are a lot of stuff that we are not happy with.
4. We feel cheated, with more and more money drawn from us as time goes on.
So me and my business partner (who happens to be my best friend), decided to end things with X. Enough is enough. He didn’t stick to our agreement, and he is keeping on asking for more money.
The other day we met with him and refused to pay him more. We asked for the keys and ended things up. He wasn’t happy, and neither were we, and so, things got escalated and my b-parnter and X were too close to have a fist fight!
Yesterday, X called and threatened me! He wants some more money that he claims that he paid from his own. He never got us real invoices, and the ones he brought the night of the fight were a joke! It was so obvious that he wrote them himself! Lol!
Anyway, we have set up a meeting tonight at my house to try to solve things! Hope it works and we reach to an agreement. (Kinzi, we need your prayers) 🙂
All this fuss has disturbed my inner peace. I can’t really focus and feel relaxed with such tension around. Yesterday, I felt a need to a positive move in my life, and so, and after a couple of months of not talking to a friend (10 years old friendship) because things haven’t been good between us as he got married and distanced himself from us. It didn’t suit me his changed behaviour, and thus, I kept some more distance myself with a couple of unappreciated moved from my part.
So yesterdya, I called him. He sounded serious at first, but when he heard my tone voice which I made it friendly and lovely, his attitude changed. We had a nice 4 minutes chat, asking about each other and breaking the ice built between us.
It was a needed positive move from me. I felt that I have been able to fix a 10 years old relationship with a small nice gesture. I burnt a small light that eased the darkness of this phase of time which brought to me some joy and lightened my heart.
