This project has made me think long and hard—when I had spare time—about what it is I really want. I really do enjoy the instructional design work, but I guess I just don’t like not being the one in charge :-) My body has ached just like it did when I worked full time, I’ve been sick, I had a migraine, and I’ve been a little testy!
I really missed the freedom of sitting down to write any time I wished; I really missed those days when I could wake naturally feeling very well rested; I really missed having a meal cooking when Mark got home from work; and I really missed having time off at Christmas, especially the flexibility of flying out to see Katie, our daughter who lives in Pennsylvania.
Now I don’t want to seem like I’m complaining because I really really appreciated the contract job coming at the time it had. It was like it was meant to be for me and I would like other opportunities just like that one to waltz right into my lap once again.
In a few short weeks I’ll have the title Certified Dream Coach behind my name with “author” and that gives me such a sense of accomplishment and pride that is unmistakable. I’ve even re-thought my religious beliefs (probably won’t ever leave the Catholic faith) to the point of how I want to be part of that faith.
My core beliefs are the same—Love is the greatest gift of all; there is a God and He has watched over me and protected me these 52 years, giving me some very very amazing people to walk this earth with me and beside me, holding me up when I couldn’t do it myself. For that is why I feel forever grateful, forever appreciative of people just like you who remain with me as my beloved and true friend. And yes, whoever is reading this, I mean YOU!
