Day 24 – A few of my favourite things…

♫…When I’m feeling sad… ♪ I simply remember my favourite things… and then I don’t feel ♪ sooooo bad ♫

I am actually not having a bad day or feeling particularly sad or bad for that matter, but I thought I would share a few of my favourite things, things that make me happy for no particular reason except that they are:

Thunder and lightening storms…

Dragonfly by the Photographer ~ Patrick Zephyr. 'Waiting in the Sun'.

Gerbera daisies…

Irises…

Dragonflies…

Colour…

The world after a good rain when the sun just starts to come out and all the colours seem magnified…

Sunrises and Sunsets…

Music – music that stirs my emotions and moves my soul…

Art – just like music it has to intrigue me, move me in some way…

Good literature and poetry…

Fire…      Good conversation…     Feeling loved…     Teddy bears and stuffies…

Eagles and ravens…    The moon…     Abandoned things…      Gypsy Vanners & Friesans (horses)…

and so, so much more…

Day 23 – Busy…

Today was a good day at work. Today was steady. I was also flattered when one of my co-workers presented me as an expert on a subject to an enquiry. Of course today was a great day, I have begun my search for something more fulfilling and challenging – isn’t that the way it always works?

In all seriousness it was just nice to have a full day and to feel recognized for the things I do.

On another note I watched The secret Life of Walter Mitty lastnite. I really enjoyed it! I am not a fan of Ben Stiller, I don’t generally appreciate his type of humour so I was a bit apprehensive, but the movie was fantastic, uplifting and inspiring (and even funny).

Day 22 – Looking for work…

Today was my last day off for awhile. And I committed to looking for another job. Sadly I found a few that sounded great but I missed the closing dates. However I did find one that I have a shot at and is in my vicinity. I have a few days to polish the resume, match my skills up with the requirements and put together a nice cover letter. I have already started but have a bit more polishing to go. I also put my name in for another job over the weekend but I am really unsure about it. It is a major commute, and not necessarily the job I want but one I am more than capable of doing. The cream job I missed applying to by a few days, but what will be will be and I did submit saying that should they not find someone for it, or if it comes open again please consider me. You never know.

So what am I saying I’m grateful for? I am grateful that I have found the confidence I needed to put my foot forward and actually do a serious look. I am thankful that I have taken the step from being unhappy where I am at and going beyond recognizing it, and complaining about it and actually taking action.

So cross your fingers with me and blow on that dandelion puff while we wish I find the right one and actually get somewhere :)
