the seasons come and go
moments of joy and sorrow
days blending to weeks and years
do we savor the moment or
rush to complete the next task
may we remember to pause
breathing in the beauty and transitory nature of life
relishing what beauty and joy we find
while embracing our challenges
for more simple pleasures
I decided to make a change in my work. I’ve been driving as a medical courier for the last year. While I’ve enjoyed the job and pace, more and more the high car expenses aren’t justified by the pay we receive, so I decided to look for other work and accepted a seasonal driver position with UPS. I’ll still be driving my own vehicle, but making much better pay. I’m both excited and nervous about the change. I’ve grown attached to my routines and don’t like change as much. Although, I also notice a sense of stagnation in my life. Hopefully, this will stir things up for the better.
My preference is to work part-time, allowing a more leisurely pace and time to enjoy things beyond work. While this job is very much full-time, I decided it will be good to push myself a little. Maybe I’ll even get in shape while hustling to make all those holiday gift deliveries! I expect to be very busy for the next two months with work taking up the majority of my time and life until mid-January. Then I can relax, enjoy a little financial cushion, evaluate what’s next, and maybe take a fun vacation for the first time in many years.
I may not be posting much and keeping up with your blogs. Just in case, I’ll wish everyone a season of love and joy now.
May we relish the good in our life, embrace the challenges, and spread more love.
