Frustration but internally happy and grateful

Sunday, March 09, 2014

I am trying to change my life little by little as there are so many things to pursue.

A new job, a new home for my family (I decided yesterday that I don't want to live in my current city anymore), my foods and a lot more. Sooooo. I am taking action to change my life. Why? Because who will?

I may give my notice this week and ponder the next steps. I just don't want to do this anymore. I had an epiphany and want to make a change. Of course I am afraid, but of what? Fear is of the unknown and uncertain. I will be fine.

I stopped biting my nails after 40+ years in January and just started up again yesterday? Why? I couldn't tell you. That's another area (personal habits; small ones) that I am trying to change one at a time. I bought this nasty stuff to put on them and for Jan and Feb, I was doing great and they grew beautifully. I became confident and stopped putting the stuff on and went back to nibbling again. Crap; oh well. I will move on from that too. Now I know. ALWAYS wear the 'man polish'. It does work by the way.

I am going out with my wife now to discuss a few of the things here. We both don't like FL and are looking to get back north. We are actually excited about this as it will bring up some very fond and wonderful memories of when we met up North...

Oh, and while in line at a supermarket, I attmepted to help a family that didn't have enough money. They eventually took the money from the guy who was bagging as he had exact change. They did acknowledge and were very appreciative of my gesture.

A man with his small son needed a little extra money at checkout. Just a nice gesture to pay it foward...I never did anything like that and will do more often. It felt great to put smiles on people's faces. It really did! I felt 'stronger' as a person contributing to the cause of humanity. Strange sounding but try it one day and feel the warmth of a family smiling just because you helped out.

Happy New Week all..

    I would assume that the nail biting is connected to the change in jobs and location; stressful situations. Best of luck on those endeavors, by the way. I lived for a time in central Florida and didn't like it. It was nice being 45 minutes from Busch Gardens and Disney World / Universal Studios, but you can only go to amusement parks so much!
