I've been away the last few weeks because I needed to get some things done.
I spent time reflecting and contemplating.
Made a list of what I needed to do.
Usually, I stopped there and piddled around. Getting some things done and ignoring others completely. In other words, procrastinating.
Not this time!
Sometimes everything comes together ... Grace?
I decided it was time to go back to work. Finally!
On Sunday, I spent all day writing a new resume. I wanted it to be fresh and reflect who I am right now.
Monday morning I mailed a copy to my friend to review. I asked her to be brutally honest.
She tells me it was amazingly good. I knew it was good ... Inspired even, which is saying something because I rarely feel confident about my writing. Grace?
I move forward with confidence ...
Monday evening I mailed my new resume to a major pharmaceutical company in my area.
Tuesday morning I got a call from the company asking if I could come in Wednesday to talk.
On Wednesday I was offered a job as a Technical Project Manager Consultant. Amazing rate, 5 minutes from home, on my terms. Grace?
My health is great, my thyroid medicine is kicking in and I have so much energy. Grace?
I having a surgical biopsy next week by the head of the head and neck surgery department so I know I'm in excellent hands. After that, I will not require anything regarding my lymphoma. I'll be on the watch and wait protocol ... Hopefully for many years!
I got my life back. I have the energy to get it all done! Grace?
My list has a number of things still on it. The rest of the week will be about finishing it.
It's so nice to be so close to closing the doors to the past and moving on.
My future is looking good and I know that I will be ok no matter what happens. Grace?
Life is good! Thank you God!
Oh yeah ... I turned 52 today. I'm thankful for each day.
Every day of my life since 48 has been a bonus. I feel such a sense of awe. I can't imagine wasting a moment on berating my body. It's a miracle. Life is a miracle. More specifically, YOUR life is a miracle.
I want my response to life say THANK YOU! I want to know joy and happiness as a way of life, not something to grasp at and miss the mark.
I hope you feel the same because life is just too short to not like your god pod ...or yourself. Challenge yourself, for sure, but never forget that you are precious today, just as you are!
My time off for reflection has, I believe been time well spent. I've learned a new way of life.
Grace? You betcha!
