"You get what you expect"-Alvin Ailey
I set some lofty expectations for myself, raising the bar every time I get a chance. I recently received a couple of job notifications on positions I applied for when I was laid off last year. My name finally was reached on the roster to be considered for the position. If there is anything I have learned in 2009 was not to put all my eggs in one basket. I let myself get complacent, get soft when it comes to the job market. Now we live in a different kind of world and i do not take my time with GM lightly. Just yesterday at work, my supervisor walked up to me and handed me my ten year certificate. Ten years I have given to this company. It has been a blessing to me, allowing to buy two cars, bought and sold a home, shoes in closet, food constantly in my refrigerator and a warm place to sleep every night (on a very comfortable sleep number mattress)
I do not take my job and position lightly. There were some things I could have done better. I can say I am more educated by the job transitions (four relocations in ten years
I am raising the bar on my personal life as well. Getting this weight loss journey underway, eating healthier and choosing life instead of letting life pass me by. I call this the evolution of Kelly. I am a work in progress,growing,shaping and evolving. I have learned a lot about myself in the last twelve months, some life lessons I didn't want to participate in and I have a lot more to learn. Setting my great expectations is just par for the course and I welcome what God has in store for me.
I expect the best right here and right now
