Well back to work yesterday flew by! I was reminded of how much I love my job as my boss sent an e-mail to the team to announce I was 'back' and to congratulate me on being spotlighted on my association's international website... check it out: community.iaap-hq.org/IAAPHQ/IAAPHQ/
As I was sifting through all my e-mails, I also found someone from a recruiting company had contacted me about another job - saying he found my profile on Linked In and that I would be a good match for an amazing opportunity. While I was flattered... I'm happy at my current 'dream' job! I even had a voice mail from another recruiting company about another job...
The work I'm currently doing is truly satisfying and team is growing and I'm loving it so I'm not going anywhere... but it's nice to know my skills are being recognized out there!
Getting back into the swing of things is a bit of a whirlwind this week as I try to get grounded again... but I'm going to give myself a week to get settled back in (since this week is so very busy too with work, catching up and volunteering).
Jodee came over last night and we caught up (at work too as I'm lucky to have her near by there too). I'm blessed with such great friends!
My days are full - of things ... including friendships, a great career, great networking through volunteering... and now some 'love' too... While I'm being cautious and not jinxing anything by saying too much... I'm enjoying the wonderful feeling it's brought back into my life! I feel like I'm on FIRE again... with Passion and Purpose (my association's theme for the year)...
I have more catching up and follow-up to do with my new friends I made on the cruise too... Hope to get to that before week's end...
Here's another pic that I had taken when I arrived in St Maarten...
A'ye maties! I must get my bootie into gear and get this day started! Happy Tuesday all!!
PS - Back to reading my affirmations and daily motivator... great one today... My FOCUS is on all that is positive! Thanks again to all for the warm welcome back!!
Focus on the BEST!
You always get more of what you focus upon. So, what are you focused upon right now?
Are you focused on the problems, the distractions, the frustrations, the excuses, the shortcomings and the annoyances in your world? Or, are you focused on your dreams, your greatest possibilities, your positive passions, and on the things that you value most?
You can choose your focus in every moment, and by doing so you can choose the reality of your life. Though it may seem that circumstances conspire to steal your focus, they can only do so with your cooperation.
Yes, there are plenty of things that will pull your focus in a negative, destructive direction. And yet, you have the strength and the ability to persistently pull your focus back in line with your most positive and empowering intentions.
It's not that difficult to maintain your focus. It's just a matter of overriding some negative habits you may have developed.
Focusing on what's positive and productive and empowering is actually a lot of fun, and the more you do it, the more you'll like it. Focus on the best you can imagine, and watch all those good things grow more abundant in your life.
