On life’s journey Faith is nourishment, Virtuous deeds are a shelter, Wisdom is the light by day and Right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him; If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom. Buddha
there is a surge of anticipation bubbling up around me these days. the new work gig actually starts on monday in the new location and my daily commute begins. can’t say exactly what will happen, but i am definitely interested.
this has been a sweetly strange and delicious month for me. after leaving the employ of an miranda priestly wannabe in october and bracing through 3 1/2 weeks of sinusitus and situational depression followed by a gesture of faith mixed with fear by taking a managerial position and filling my calendar with holiday parties to fill in the financial gaps created by righteous boundary keeping, i have come through the first month of the new reality as i leave behind the last month of the year of many many transitions.
judging with a financial lens, this has been the healthiest december in the last decade. although not the measuring stick to live by, it has alleviated some generally standard concerns i have come to accept as normal and the opportunity to fold doubt and put it on the closet shelf for awhile has been a gift. and i have been the recipient of monetary compensations that wowed and surpassed any expectation. thank you universe for supporting my expression of saying “no thank you” to unhealthy situations.
along with the advent of revenue gain, this year has graced me with a very new sense of peace and self-acceptance that i cannot remember tasting before. am beginning to appreciate where i find myself just now. and am flirting with the idea of inviting dreams and inspiration back in.
have to let go and make room. want to savor the flavors of today.want to enjoy the view. smell the roses. find some higher ground. lift off. take flight. soar.
hope for 2015.
