The magic of finding myself looking for another job!
Finding myself looking for another job... It's a bit funny as I had envisioned myself retiring as a ticket agent, heck it all just fit so well into our lives. For some reason a long term situation just isn't where things seem to be going for me at the station. And yet I simply get a sense that all things happen for a reason and so I'll let the universal energies spin their magic and see where I'm leading myself to next! Remembering it's not the destination but the journey itself that is the rich fabric of life! At first I felt remorse and a bit slighted with the way the change was presented. No matter, "it's not bad, it's not good, it's just what it is"; I remind myself and from that point of power I move forward, confident spirit always leads where I need to be.
Other exciting things are taking place that seem to hint at potential in new directions and activities. I've been nonchalantly looking into doing video logs or vlogs from the garden. I could even broadcast a show or two on blogtalk radio right from the garden, the ideas are getting me experimenting with new, fun tools. Skype looks like another interesting tool and I hope more people in North America start to take advantage of it. I've got to pick up a headset as I don't currently have a mic on this laptop, with that a lot of possibilities present themselves!
And then there's my mom who's health is starting to get shaky, perhaps it's time to consider working at home on a more steady basis. Between her, the house and the dogs there is a full time job right here. I'd be able to keep up the website and other work without a lot of competition for my time. I know those are things I'd prefer to spend my time doing. If the time is right the right opportunity will present itself!
The side bar to those ideas is the desire to maintain some even, calm through these new transitions as they present themselves. Depression can often divert my best intentions and ideals. I work to maintain a hopeful expectation without unbalancing a sense of calm ease within... I find that quite a challenge at the moment. My mum has taken ill with shingles and it has started to kick her butt. She's wobbly and weak and the nerve endings are very painful! Poor thing, she's so apologetic and I keep telling her, "don't worry it's just my turn to take care of you for a change!" How magical is that?
