I'm Focused and Ready

3 years ago

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve blogged.  A lot has been going on in my personal life.  Instead of being mature and rational and dealing with my life, I decided to make poor choices and avoid my feelings and my life.  I’ve spent the last three months numb.  I’ve cried.  I’ve called into work.  I’ve probably gained 10 extra pounds.  I’ve been a total mess.

That’s all over now….or at least I’m almost there!  I’m slowing pulling myself back up and getting back to where I want my life to be….and back to the person I want to be.  I know that the type of person I was putting into the universe is not who or what I want.  I want to be positive and happy and encouraging.  But, honestly, I have needed some encouragement lately.  I am very lucky to have wonderful friends and my sister to talk me through everything.

As I said, I’m putting the past three months behind me.  I’m moving forward.  The past couple of weeks have been very focused. I’ve been writing and journaling.  I’ve been spending time with cherished friends and making new ones.

Professionally, I’ve made great strides with CLIMB OUT OF THE CUBICLE.  The pilot program I started in March has come to an end.  The program went very well.  My clients were very pleased, and I got very useful feedback on providing top value to my future clients.  It was a wonderful experience.

I also started a newsletter.  If you want to join my mailing list, you can sign up here.

My next steps have my business at the forefront of my mind.  My friends will have top priority when I choose how to spend my free time, and I will explore the outdoors and this wonderful city that I love so dearly.  I also have an upcoming vacation in July where I’ll have the opportunity to spend real quality time alone to be with my thoughts and my journal.

I am focused and ready for what comes next.
