Blogging has been a funny thing in the just over two months that I have been blogging here. I have "met" lots of new people and connected with others whose blogs I have read for some time, but never before had the courage to comment. It has been really great and I am loving it.
Thank you so much for joining with me, reading, commenting and replying to my comments to you! All I need now is about 100 extra hours a day to do all the things that I would love to try from all of your blogs. What a lovely problem to have though. I cannot complain about this.
Now that I am "up and running" I can't imagine what took me so long. So silly isn't it how we don't do things and then wonder why we didn't. Oh well, I am sure that it is one of those universal situations that we all have from time to time.
I commented recently on a couple of blogs, and here, about "braveness". I guess that starting blogging was about braveness. I needed some. The point was proved though, just get on and do it, stop worrying about what might happen and DO IT - I have to keep repeating it!! I did finally, and the world didn't fall in - funny that, why would a blog cause the world to collapse - but there you go.
"Things" are still up and down, and I know that there is more to come, but, I am feeling braver and I wanted to thank you, my readers and commenter's, for helping my braveness. You are all great and I want you to know that and to know that I hope that you are brave too. Now, all I need is the patience fairy to come and land on my shoulders on the stressful days and stay there - she visited once for about half a day, it was wonderful until she flew off again. Any suggestions on how to tempt in a patience fairy - it is not practical for me to wear flowers in my hair!!
I need to stop over thinking a few other things and just do them, so think of me in the next few months and send the patience fairy if you see her and don't need her yourself (keep her if you do, I believe she likes cake!).
In the spirit of DOING IT and not over thinking I decided that I needed to quit one of my jobs as it was (warranted or not) causing me stress and I was not enjoying it. I didn't "need" to do it, hubby said quit, but I couldn't quite bring myself to do it.
However, I quit earlier this week and so far the world has not collapsed due to that either! I realised that it was totally the right decision as I was actually telling my boss and there were no "we'll miss you", "thanks for everything" or "hope it all works out" comments, so I think that must mean that all my thoughts about the situation I felt I was in were, despite what lots of other people said, correct.
I have two more weeks to go and then I am done with it. I wish that I would miss it, because I have loved my work, but I fear that I am not going to miss it at all, which is very sad to me. Oh well, I will find something else, because I am not a sit around and do nothing sort. Only downside I see so far is that hubby will be hoping for more home cooking! Not a problem as I got two new cookbooks for my birthday and have not tried a thing from them yet.
Thank you again for sharing, braveness and lots of fun. Loving it and I hope that you are too.
Take lots of care of yourself.
