>What a month it’s been at work!
First and foremost, I love my job. I’m thankful I have tolerable coworkers (finally!) and such understanding bosses. I went from answering simply phone calls and emails to having to REALLY use my Spanish translating skills and learn how to be a hard ass.
I’m finally at a job where my mind is constantly tested and common sense really has to kick in. It’s not difficult, but it’s certainly not the same as typing estimates and making copies.
I have even come close to doubting myself. Almost believing I wasn’t as good/great as everyone else. I guess in my mind, I wanted to be at the same level as those that have been there longer than I have. But I’m new. I’m learning. I’m getting the hang of it, and though I’m having to learn some things the hard way (in my mind, harshly, the “stupid” way). But thanks to two lovely ladies
, I’ve been able to conquer my doubt and increase my confidence…
I find myself missing my “old” team of three hilariously awesome guys. But I gotta admit, I enjoy the peace and quiet I now find myself in. It’s serene in the Pub Room. Everyone helps everyone. We greet one another with smiles. It’s a different atmosphere. I guess when you work with people who enjoy their work, that’s the end result…
With this new gig, we find ourselves much more financially stable than before. It’s actually scaring Husby how we can buy things and still have plenty for a rainy day. Although, the time we spent strapped for cash did serve us as a good lesson that we’ll take with us in the days to come.
Health-wise, I’m doing great. I feel lighter, healthier. This week, I’ve increased my mileage to 6-8 miles from three mile bike rides. It helps that I can watch ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ on my phone (Whee Hulu Plus!) while pedaling my way to strong legs and firmer arse. Haha! I’ve also added strength training to my upper body. To even it out, y’know? All that is missing is a pedicure and a facial, which I’m aiming for as a treat to myself next week. Anything to help the practically self-induced stress.
Next weekend we’ll be having a weekend at the beach with the family and to celebrate my brother’s 20th birthday. I cannot wait! This weekend, we’re relaxing and doing extreme vegging. Thank God for this three day weekend, is all I can say.
I cannot believe how continually blessed we are. I simply believe that if we are kind to one another, leave hate out of our hearts and open our arms to those who need them… good things follow.
What you give out to the world is what the world will give back to you. Whether it’s positive or negative. Aim to give out positivity and love, and you’ll get that exact same thing back ♥
That’s my new credo.
