These days I am literally surviving on "flower power". I have remained on with the floral delivery company and have been more or less assimilated into the delivery crew.
It just sort of happened after I expressed an interest in doing this sort of work all the time and then two other drivers had health issues and I am helping take up the slack on their routes. Next month I will also help out with a courier route 3 days a week, which will increase my earnings slightly.
I have come to accept that I will never go back to working in health care again. At least not in the role I'd been in for over 25 years. It came to be such a "soul sucking" existence that the very thought of doing it anymore leaves me feeling spiritually crushed.
I have loved doing floral delivery since I took it up seasonally in 2012, and so that is what I'd like to do for now. I am not sure where this is going, if there is a place for me longer term with this company or another, but for now I am happier than I have been in years.
I've tried to bring my camera along on these excursions, but have been too busy to even stop and shoot photos for this blog. So I have nothing new to show of that nature.
I am enjoying this new life immensely, though we live "poor as Job's turkey" and from week to week, trying to keep the bills covered. But it will be all right. I know it was meant for me to leave that job and that way of life and embrace this one.
It is a new beginning, an uncertain future, but exciting and refreshing. I am usually a big "planner", but I have come to embrace a new way of being and that is taking it one day at a time, on faith, and with trust in God that I am heading in the right direction.
It's gotta be...I feel such an inner peace, so much better physically and spiritually, and so excited about a future doing just what I am doing and who knows what else.
It must be the "power of the flower"! I can account for it in no other way...
