Like Peach in "Finding Nemo", I try to focus on finding a "happy place" in my daily life.
Usually it is a matter of attitude, and easily attained.
Sometimes though it is a matter of needing to make drastic change after agonizing, drawn out misery and painful decisions.
My situation was the latter. After sixteen months of the most incredible work stress I have ever experienced, I resigned and walked out to freedom yesterday.
Right out the door, never to return.
My spirit, mind, and body just could not take it anymore and I had done all I could do to fight the situation as an employee. It had to be over and so it was.
Now I will deliver flowers for the next two weeks and see what is next for me.
I am sad, but elated. Exhausted, but energized. Scared, but optimistic.
Today I woke up to a new world, full of possibility.
It was a strange, sweet feeling.
I am celebrating and looking forward to the best Christmas ever. A rebirth of how I spend my time bringing in kibble money and caring for those I hold most dear.
Oh how a celebratory scooter ride would be awesome today! It's cold (30s), damp, cloudy, and kind of all gray looking out there. We'll see.
Maybe tomorrow the sun will burst forth and the birds will sing!
Oh, wait, metaphorically that has already happened!
In the meantime, I have found a Happy Place after a long time of unhappy.
And I am so HAPPY!
