An indication to me that this was the right thing for me was that after a day of being frustrated/angry/disappointed after a set-back, I got right back to it and moved on.
It feels like it's taken forever for construction to get started, but now that it has, the store has quickly taken shape and now (in the words of my cousin), it's starting to look like a store (instead of a construction site).
