things I am learning


my kids are away camping.  it is very quiet.  one is without a cellular device - because well - he just is and my daughter is possession of hers but I have not heard from her.  i am thinking that they are outside of range and so it has been quiet.  i don't like not knowing.  but, they are with friends who all have a reasonable sense of what to do if something goes wrong.... so I am just sitting with the discomfort.  leaning into the sharp edges. 

i love my new job.  i can say that without hesitation.  i feel alive again.   without sounding overly dramatic i was dying in my old job.   there was barely a glimmer or spark inside.  this job gives me so many opportunities to be creative and inspired.  there are challenges to be sure.  but, there is nothing better than setting a goal and then achieving it.  in my mind.  and having a management team appreciate you are doing good work.  seriously - that is the best too. 

and the ripple effect is crazy good.  my brain is working overtime and ideas are flying fast and furious.  i have met some awesome people.  and heard some good stories.  there are so many stories to be told.

i am exercising with more purpose again.  with a slight adjusted mindset.  and a different goal.
my goal is to be lean and strong.  fit.  ready.  there is lots to do people.  lots to do.

Am still always reading, if not commenting. May all be well. I like this: "just sitting with the discomfort. leaning into the sharp edges".

so happy that you are happy in your job!! i'm getting there. bit strange today since i'm in a new physical space - finally got my office! but overall it is good.

i envy you your creativity. i don't have much - not in an abandoned free kind of way. i have some organized creativity. not the same thing.

I love this post. The word that comes to my mind while reading it is "passion"

All good news, though I do know about traveling children.
