Sleepless Night

It is early morning and I cannot sleep but I found the cute idea above on real simple's website. Hopefully soon I will fall right off to sleep. :)

Row Row Row Your Boat

Wherever the heck you want to!

When life is not taking you in the direction that you need to go and when things are not healthy, it is time to change directions. This past few weeks have been stormy for me with many ups and downs and in betweens.

I quit a job for the first time in my life. I am always hard on myself and I felt bad because I quit. I think sometimes I am my own worst enemy when it comes to my high expectations. I think all the close people around me were suffering because I was suffering and they knew it and I would not allow myself to admit deep down to the fact that things were not getting any better at the workplace, just more pressurized, negative and stressful. I was trying to stick with it for a year, just long enough to change departments but it just became too much. I couldn't handle it any longer and had gone to my limit.

My attitude changed the other night when I had a talk with my Father. He mentioned, if you knew you were going to die at midnight... Would you still be feeling this way? Of course I said No! He was right. I needed to stop focusing on the past and enjoy my right now!!!

I am relieved now and am just taking a little breather before looking for a better opportunity.

P.S. I designed a new banner for the blog with Armando's help. Do you like it? It has a feather on it that I found at Lake Guntersville.

Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
