Thankful Thursday

Thursday, December 08, 2011

Still pondering and trying to sort through what I want to do. Sometimes I wish God would send a message down and then I wonder if I'd bother to read it.

Keep reading and hearing things about being more positive. I am tending to dwell on the negative. I have so much more to be thankful for.

Trying to be more positive for my Mother in law. She tries to get her energy and laughter from me and after being around her I feel drained. When I'm around her I am quiet and am not the happy, teasing person I used to be. Not sure if it's the drain of work, her choleric personality or combination of them all. Gonna keep working on my positive attitude.

Maybe the break and our trip to Florida for Christmas will clear my head.

Off to finish work, take Mom to exercise at Curves and then Praise Team practise.


Wednesday Ponderings

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

Work going OK right now...questioning myself why I want to leave. I know what to do and wonder why I want to start something new and leave the comfort of my surroundings. Think its just wanting to stay safe and secure and trudge along safely. Yet I don't want to look back and say...why didn't I take the chance and see what else is out there. Been in the business for 8 years so it's not like I'm a quitter. My insides knows I need to's just a hard step to take. Yet looking doesn't hurt anything either.

Off to make it a great day!

    It is always easy to see both sides of a question. Very tricky to make a decision.

    Looking is good. Keep your options open. Makes life more fun knowing you have options and that you aren't stuck in one place.

Tuesday Terrific

Off to make it a great day! Heading to Florida for the holiday Dec 20 and the countdown has begun. Can't wait to see my daughter and see some sunshine. Know the trip will do Mom good and help relax us all.

Looking forward to being away from work. Hopefully get some time to think and pray about new decisions about my career in 2012. One step at a time.

Off to make it a great day!

Marvelous Monday

Monday, December 05, 2011

Went to church and stayed for baby shower with Mom. Took her home and did some shopping. Needed to get a gift certificate for boss' Christmas Present and pick up a few things for Christmas. It was really raining but enjoyed just looking around. Looked at clothing but didn't find anything I had to have. Plus I'm starting to I'm loosing weight...may need some smaller sizes :)

Off to make it a great week. Think I'm pretty settled that 2012 will bring a career change in my life. Gonna stop complaining about everything...just not the right place for me. Dust up the resume and "Do Something" about it the situation. Work will be better off and so will I.

Off to make it a great day!

Had breakfast with former boss. He shared with me he has early alzheimers/dementia. What a shock and how sad. He has greatly impacted my life. He is a very positive motivational person who challenged and pushed us to be more than we were. The whole little group of us have gone off and soared. How thankful I am that he was in my life for the short while. He helped encourage and motivate me to soar with the eagles.

He also asked me why...if I'm not happy where I'm working...why I'm not doing something about it. Told him that is my goal in 2012. Guess I'm coming to the stage where I'll be saying "see you later" to people in my life. How fortunate for him to be able to deal with it and let people know and thank others for the impact they have had on his life. What a neat man he is. I am thankful for his impact in my life.

Up and ready to exercise on the weekend. Normally I don't but the Winter Challenge has me up and ready to go.

    Glad that you were able to reconnect with such a special person. Treasure the moment but make sure you find a few more.

    That is beautiful that you got to spend a special visit with your former boss. It is hard to move forward, and leave a comfort zone. But, as you said "he gave you wings to fly like an eagle." I hope for you, that you may find the happiness and strength in 2012 to find the job that fits you. The best part of moving on is that we can always carry the memories of those who have impacted our lives and meet new friends whom we can learn and grow with. The beauty of life. It reminds me of a song we use to sing when we were younger. "Make new friends and keep the old. One is silver and the other gold." Spread your wings and fly!
