Another update, slight shift in focus

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Well, I am feeling ...

tired. I went to bed later than usual last night and still got up at about 5. Did not get on the treadmill until after 6 though, relaxed and had some coffee and a bar. NICE!

emoticon Got in 3 or 3 and a half miles in this morning watching Chicago fire.
emoticon Did an on-line course towards my PMP Certification.
emoticon Back on the treadmill for just a mile, short lunch break.
emoticon Took Utah for a very short walk. Sierra was on the acreage with my DH.

I spoke with him a bit about the coursework last night and he is still being super supportive.

Finished another course this afternoon. My brain is now tired. I am ready to stop and relax.

OK, I should get to the point of my blog.... I received the e-mail....

"At this time I've chosen a small number of other candidates to move further along with our interview process. I will keep your resume on file for a possible future opening."

It is a necessary ....

I am not where I should be with my Project Management skills. I am fairly close and, not to sound stupid but.. my people skills have gotten me where I am with Project Management.

I am learning things on this current consulting job that I should already know. AND as I keep mentioning, I am studying each weekend taking courses for my certifications. I am convinced that I am doing the right thing.

I think May might be when I could possibly be ready to take the exam (maybe). Possibly I could hold out until then with this current job. That would mean 4 or 5 months with this job at the lower rate.

I almost forgot, my overly smart DH mentioned that this drop might help put us in a lower tax bracket. That can help me rationalize. Maybe I will put the majority of my focus on learning and the certification (and health and fitness of course) and a bit less on the job search.

That voice in my head is telling me that is the way to go. I simply need to ....

about the money.

I am glad I blogged. I feel better. And once again,
emoticon for me for feeling attractive last night. It has literally been so long I can not recall when it was. I know all last summer I was so grateful not to go out on the boat because i did not want to put a suit on. i was uncomfortable with what I looked like in shorts and struggled to find the pair I should put on.

I need to be happy with my progress and not over analyze.

Thanks for listening... Gotta feed the pups.

    I'm so glad you got out with your man and had a great time and felt attractive! That is amazing progress:)

Love your Stop Stressing poster. So important...especially when you are working towards so many goals all at once. Take on only what you can handle TODAY and leave the rest to not be worried about. I'm working on that for me too!

    Wonderful blog! I too think you are doing the right thing. (but you already know that :-) How great that can possibly get finished by really isn't that far away. I say if you can do it just focus on finishing your courses and taking your test rather than your income...that will come later...for sure!

I am so pleased that you are feeling so good about yourself! You are so great and simply deserve to feel great! Keep up the great work. I love your blogs!

    Follow your gut instincts, they don't usually steer you wrong. Feel proud of all that you have already accomplished and remember, money isn't everything.
