Data Dump

Changing your life is a journey.

I've been frustrated lately because I didn't realize that. Hello? Nothing happens overnight. It took me ten years to make decent dollars in my current career and now that I'm here ... I realize that I really don't enjoy what I'm doing. Ain't that a kick in the head?

So, I'm slowly and quietly exploring a new direction.

You know what's funny? As I look back over my life I see that there were plenty of opportunities for me to explore this new direction and for whatever reason I never did. I didn't share my dream with anyone so no one was around to encourage me. No one told me I could do it. So I didn't.

Anyway ...

I am so blessed to live here. We had dinner on the bay on Tuesday night and it was breathtaking. Sipping wine, eating oysters, feeling the breeze come up off the water. The haves would go by in their boats and some would pull up to the restaurant and have dinner. This is a beautiful place to live and in the summer I try to spend as much time at the beach as possible. I'm definitely a warm weather girl. Winter depresses the hell outta me.

There is a woman at my job who I believe is on something ... she can't stop talking, she can't stop moving, I wanted to jump across the conference room table yesterday and slap the taste outta her mouth. I swear, if she said it's not that simple one more damn time. Because, actually it was that simple.

And back to my frustration ... I'm letting it go and I will simply work a little more everyday to accomplish what needs to be accomplished. I'm only 43 and I plan to be around for a little while longer so why not make the most of it? You know? I've got work to do and it's not going to get done by itself. They say that life is short ... but dammit, it feels real long when you're not enjoying yourself.

Have a great day!

Get ta working on that life change, Oldgirl!!

I'm not a big fan of my job either. I let management know that I am here to pay my bills, period. They don't like to hear that, but OH WELL.

Go on and change it up, Oldgirl!
