Things are looking up!
I love when I drive to work and look up in the sky and see a scene like the picture above. It brings me such peace and helps me realize the God is always with me and will take care of me. Sometimes you just have to look up (literally) to know that you are loved and surrounded by God's never ending grace!
Smile: What's made me smile?
Me and Bonnie took a trip to Arlington to the Great American Scrapbook Convention...aka nerdville. It was a great day shopping for bargains and putting our creative hats on to help us get out of our heads, which our jobs require us to be so much of the time. It was a great way to spend an afternoon with my BFF and lots and lots of paper products! Bon--I draw the line at matching bedazzled shirts..just sayin.
Celebrate: What do I celebrate?
I have a meeting tomorrow with a potential new manager to find out about a job opening in her division. I'm pursuing other job opportunities because I have come to the realization that I'm too stressed out, complaining too much and just not feeling like I'm fulfilled. I have made the decision to make some changes to my situation and do something that I need to do to find that peace and happiness that I so long for. So, I've started reaching out to my network to let them know that I'm available for pursuing some additional opportunities and have applied to some job postings. I've been overwhelmed by the responses that I've gotten from my network who have said how excited they are to consider working with me closer. That is a huge honor from some of these people and I'm quite blessed that my reputation, which I've worked so hard to create is strong and good within my organization. Today, I also received a possible lead to a job that I applied for and hope to set up some time with the recruiter to discuss in more detail. We'll see what happens, but I feel good that God is blessing me, he's answering my prayers and once again, he is taking care of me--I think I celebrate that the most!
I also celebrate that I was told by our Executive Vice President that I did a good job presenting to the President of the Bank an overview of the Training Organization. She's a tough cookie, so getting that compliment meant a lot! Whew! I passed that test, was quite stressed out about it!
It takes so much effort for me to get to the gym, but once I do, I LOVE how I feel after working out. It truly does help my stress and makes me feel so strong. If I would only remember how I feel I'd do it more often...how quickly the mind forgets the good feeling and only remembers the pain! Well..perhaps I'll start a new leaf and get myself back in the gym! I so need to be there on a regular basis! So desperately need to be there!
Thought for the day: You become what you think about whether you like it or not-Wayne Dyer. (That's why I'm looking for a new job...I'm becoming a complainer and I just don't want to be "that girl!")
