Wordle: snow

Tuesday, February 24, 2009


We become so vulnerable when we are without gainful employment. So many temptations to lure us away from the course. The computer screen blinking with shiny letters, a path to excitement, the local scrapbook store offering a "FREE" workshop (yeah, like I have the self-discipline to attend the workshop & walk out empty handed),or the comfortable sofa near the fireplace with the puppy dozing.

I think I've found a passion within me to wake early for a vigorous walk, coffee at the local coffee shop (my one indulgence) and work within my community to make it a better place. Laying around just isn't my style. I 've used this opportunity to have exeriences that (hopefully) enrich my life as well as re-connect with my family. I enjoy the stories shared by my parents, learning things about them that amaze me.

LIfe in the slower lane isn't so bad after all. Not a place I plan to linger, but I plan to enjoy the commute from this viewpoint while it presents itself.

my Mantra of the day....

"No one can make you feel inferior without your permission".... that Eleanor Roosevelt was one smart cookie! :)

More chocolate... more wisdom

Gotta love the Dove people! Not only do they make delicious chocolates, they find bits of wisdom to share with the world!

Today's thought: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams"

I have been doing that for the past few weeks since becoming unemployed (YAY! I'm a statistic).
Although financially I am down in the dumps (makes you re-prioritize what is important to you), I couldn't feel more alive! So many possibilites are out there.

I have had opportunities to participate in meeting and activities I haven't been able to in over 10 years because of the nature of my (former) work. Meeting and reconnecting with people and learning new things about myself (or not so new, just laying dormant while I used my mind/body for working in a corporate environment).

I am energized, happy and enjoy taking on new adventures each day. And now... the adventure of dry laundry awaits.
