#5 – Behind suburban walls

My perimeter wall collapsed today. With city living, a collapsed wall brings with it a deep sense of anxiety. Suddenly my neighbours are able to peek into my suddenly ‘naked’ material possessions. After a few hours of this urban nakedness, you go through Elisabeth Kubler Ross and David Kessler’s famous 5 stages of grief, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

Once I had accepted my situation, I struck a conversation with a gentleman who was helping rebuild my wall. An hour later I had learned so much about business ranging from construction, auctions and energy conservation. Besides the cost, I’m glad that my wall fell as it led me to discover a lot more about life. A few months from now I won’t remember that on this day my wall collapsed, what I will remember is that through the fallen wall I was introduced to Garth.

Happiness is getting a free lesson on business from a total stranger expecting nothing in written.
