So here we are, in the middle of February, and life is still good. :) I started my new job back at a pharmacy as a Pharmacy Assistant (technitian without the training). I think it's kind of funny how I have resorted back to this kind of job more than once. It makes me think that perhaps this is what I should be doing, but then I remember WHY I don't want to have this for a career. It's too stressful for me. I like what I do, and for the most part I like who I work with, but the retail side of it is what I don't like. Anyway, I'm only working part-time for now, and it's nice. :) I started going to Curves a couple weeks ago, and I love it! I think just the thought of being active and doing something about my weight gives me a natural high. I go with my friend Karen a lot, and I think that helps me. It's nice to have someone to go with, to encourage you, and to drag you there when you need it. :)
With some of the extra time I've had with my new part-time job I've been able to focus more on my classes, and the more I go the more I see how much I love what I'm learning and doing. I also have more time to be at home, and unlike last month where I felt secluded and apart from everything, now it's more like a haven and I love making it more like "home".
Before I left my last job, a friend from work had given me a book. She knew what a difficult time I've been having these last few months and had always been a good shoulder and a good ear when I needed it. I'm sure some of you know about this book, but it is totally changing my life. It's called "The Secret" and it's so simple! I haven't finished it yet, but so far what I've got out of it is that your thoughts become reality. If we think positive things, positive things will happen to us. Quenton and I have talked about this and have decided to change our thinking and what we say. It's sometimes a challenge to be positive when you're having a bad day, but for the most part I can already feel better about life. :)
I'm still turning over new leaves, and I finally feel like I'm in a good groove. The world looks so much better from this view.
