I haven’t ventured far and wide this month, but that has worked out well, seeing how we want our dearest to be nearest this time of the year.
December has been so so much kinder than November, in terms of the people I have been blessed to work with. I still remember so clearly how I was beside myself in dread for this particular operating pattern, knowing the sheer agony that lay ahead of me. So in spite of the non mobility of my roster, I have emerged from this month a lot happier and generally more optimistic about January.
2013; I have set some goals to achieve. It is so easy to sit back into my new lifestyle; you better believe time flies when you follow a roster and not Weekdays versus Weekends. But I don’t want to waste the year ahead. Once I get comfortable and my job becomes more of a second nature, it’s time to get my life going on my days off. I do have a lot more free time than the average joe.
I know many people vote to give themselves years to get settled into their job, but I think I can do both. I know I can.
It’s only been 2 months, but already I am thinking: What’s next? I do not want to get too happy and complacent that I view my life within this sphere where everything’s perfect but … is it really? At what cost? Maybe I am being silly, but I have started thinking about the next crossroad in my life already.
I am willing to have less, if less means having more of the things that matter. I have to constantly nudge myself to remind myself that the more I have now is to compensate for when I choose to have less in the (near) future.
I am beginning to see how hard it is simply to have Life go the way you want it to. I must admit, my growing years have been far too kind on me. But if I do have one ability, it is to save well and dream big.
Till next time.
