It all started at the end of 2014, when I was chewing the fat with a friend. “So, Chris, what are your goals for 2015 then?” he said. I gently explained that I don’t do this goal-setting stuff. I’ve had enough of setting myself up to fail by setting goals that my body decides I can’t achieve when it gives up on me.
It was what he said next that floored me. It was almost as if he’d opened a wormhole to the future. “What would you say, if you knew that just by saying it, it would happen?” And from thin air I heard myself saying “I’d open a therapy centre”.
This was not what I anticipated saying at all. It was not on my radar. I had given up all thoughts of having my own place, ever since having to leave Utopia in Warwick in 2009 because my landlady hadn’t paid her landlord. So, taking everything into consideration, I decided to ignore what I’d just said.
A few days later, I was leaving my bank and happened to look up at the first floor of the building opposite, where for the first time I saw a To Let sign. “That’s interesting” I thought. A couple of days after that, I’d gone down with the annual lurgy and, to save myself from getting too bored, I decided to google the property.
Well it was about twice as big as I needed, but then I thought, I could let the rooms out. And the rent was interesting. So I put an enquiry in and waited.
The next day the landlord rang. He asked me what I wanted to do with the building, so I told him I wanted to put a therapy centre there. You could have knocked me down with a feather when he told me he wanted to do that too! But he is a builder, and didn’t want to deal with all these therapists. He just wanted to deal with one person. Me.
So that is how it all started. When you are doing what you are on this earth to do, the Universe moves itself to facilitate it, and that is exactly what has been happening.
