One must never lose time in vainly regretting the past or in complaining against the changes which cause us discomfort, for change is the essence of life. -Anatole France
In the coming weeks and months at work, I will be faced with some major changes. I like to think they will be good changes, but of course, not w/out challenges. I am choosing to be positive, and do my best, that is all I can really ask of myself.
I will go into these next days and weeks with an open mind and heart, knowing I will learn a lot about the new position I will be in, as well as about myself and how I can handle it.
It is no secret that being a career girl is not my biggest dream, being creative is where I really feel most comfortable and happy, but I also really enjoy the people I work with and the variety my job offers. It also pays the bills, so "quitting my day job" at this time in my life, is not an option.
I feel the next three months will let me know where I fit best and that the path I will ultimately follow will be a little clearer to me.
I am happy that I took a few days of work this week to spend time with my daughter, who is home for her Spring Break from college. We had a wonderful weekend having lunch out, and visiting my uncle, who just finished up his cancer treaments, and who we hope is on the mend. He lives in the beautiful coastal town of Half Moon Bay, what a lovely drive it was.. I always cherish taking car trips with my girls, it's a great chance to talk with them, see new places and visit family.
Little by little I'm getting my garden and front yard into shape, although there is still much to be done. I am looking forward to the week off during my Spring Break in a couple weeks to get more work done, but also take some time to relax, read, and start exercising more regularly. I went on a long walk with one of my good friends a couple days ago after work, and although it wiped me out, it also felt good to get moving. I like to call these my "walk & talks", they are fun and rejuvinating.
I will keep you posted as to how I am doing in my new postion at work and the new atmosphere that I am looking forward to.
I hope that whatever changes and challenges you face, you can handle with grace and optimism.
