a lot about change. I blame it all on Stephenie, Fiskateer Extraordinare (I would link ya, but WordPress isn't playing that today). This past weekend we got to hang out together at Scrap St Louis. Hanging with Stephenie is always fun, that girl is some serious high energy.
What we talked about got me to thinking a lot about where I want to be, what I want to do, what I aspire for which all leads to change. We talked a little about the book "The Secret". I bought that book a while back and started reading it. I don't think I made it out of the first chapter. I am a bit of a skeptic about things, especially things I can't see or feel or can be proved to me. Honestly, "sending messages out to the universe" sounds a little like hooey to me. I discovered the first time reading it, or at least starting to read it, that thinking positively is really hard. I am afraid my way of thinking and being more positive didn't last long.
So I am trying it again. I don't know if I think the whole transmitting to the universe is any less goofy this time around, but I am going to give it another go, I know thinking positively, whether it transmits to the universe or to King Kong won't kill me. This time I am going to fiinish that book. I don't know if "The Secret" is real, but I do know that when I think more positively I feel better and am just happier. Lately I have let a lot of things about my job really weigh me down. It isn't a happy place and I have let my negative feelings about it invade my entire being.
So here is my vow, to be positive and to embrace the things that make me happy and enrich my life and to let go of the things that don't. I am going to put it out there to whatever or whoever is listening that my goal is to make a living doing what I love. Doing it on the side in addition to my current job is okay, but what I really want to do is to do it all of the time and to leave behind the job that sucks the joy out of me. I know that walking away from that part of my life won't happen overnight and that several things will have to fall into place for it to happen, but I am putting it out there that it is what I want and am going to work toward.
At the beginning of the year, several of my blogging friends picked a word for the year. I am a little late on that, but I going to pick a word as "my word" for the remainder of the year. My word is "Embrace". I am going to embrace the things that enrich my life and let go of the things that don't. I am going to embrace those things that are positive for my mind, body, and spirit.
So there, I have "put it out there". . . let the change begin!
