Last Monday, I spoke about why I am going to be leaving my current teaching position and seeking something new and healthier. Today, I want to talk about the good things in my life and why I am not leaving everything behind and heading for the hills.
The work stress has been counter-balanced by a great deal of happy. Ironically, it was the happy that made me realize that I didn’t want to be unhappy and stressed so much at work. I worked for over a year to earn a promotion that I am not even being considered for and at the end of the day, I am not longer sure I want it. I want time to experience life; to actually living it.
And you know what?
I have been. In the last year, I have been to out and about more than I was in the past couple of years. In February, I went to see Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman in Tampa. In March, I escaped the gravity well of Florida and made it to Virginia for a wedding. And April, I was overjoyed to be able to reconnect with a dear friend. I have been out to the movies and chilling with friends and family more. I love being able to hang out with my nieces and nephews.
My sister and I are closer than ever and it is awesome.
I have three different book projects going and am taking some classes on Coursea. Two of which are really research for future books.
There are good things and great people in my world.
So I am staying here on this blog, writing, loving and learning.
Thanks for listening.
