Quick life update:

Friday, August 09, 2013

So here it is Sparkfriends : I like doing what I am doing. I really like it. :)

I am taking my time, being a little obsessed here and there (reminds me a lot of when I started Sparking in the beginning....I was a little obsessed with reading, learning, tracking, etc.) and the best thing: I KNOW now that I CAN DO THINGS for myself...BY meself...and BE GOOD AT IT!

This is a huge thing coming from someone who (believe it or not) has the confidence of a gnat.

I bet some of you didn't know that.... yup, it's true. I have ZERO confidence in my abilites, depending on the day. Some days are great, others are not so great.... but I will say this, the whole life change thing is not a bad thing entirely... it was time to shake things up I guess!! I just needed to get through the rough patch.

And when I mean "rough patch" it was pretty rough. Basically, with the retirement of one office, there was a death in my life... and I had to mourn that end. Weird to think of it that way, retirement is happy right? But I'm not the one retiring! LOL So thus the whole "mourning" thing. Hey, you have to be real right? In order to move on, that is. I still tear up at missing my old routine/life/people... but the new venture of mine brings me into other's lives and for that, it's a good thing for me! emoticon

Anyway... it's early, we (the family and I) are still transitioning with the OTHER new part-time job (which is fine) and I have to get moving!

As for the P/T job with it's off-hours: I bring my thermal bag to work everyday with healthy options! and 2 HUGE bottles of water! They have a lot of candy in the office, but I really don't want any (Woohoo!) AND I eat when I am hungry. Period. End of story. I just cannot NOT eat anymore when I am hungry...and the new boss doesn't care about eating at my desk, so it is all good! I am a fast eater anyway! emoticon

So that is life right now - in a transition, but better than the beginning was (thank god)

I hope things are well with everyone here...I apologize for not being uber-talky right now. Hopefully I can work that it too soon!

    I am glad you are happy and life is going well with all of the changes and your new job.
    Change is difficult as we get used to our routines, but like you said it expands you and offers you new people in your life.

    You are doing a great job of bringing food and water to stay on track. My office has candy floating around also.

    Spark on my friend. You are doing great!

    Any change is difficult as we age. Remember when change was exciting? Finishing each grade in school even though friends had graduated and moved on? We ourselves left for the excitement of college? Graduation, moving, marriage, kids, it was all so thrilling. Then we got older and even a change in mail delivery time can throw me for a loop. I have become the person I pitied when I was still in school.
