Geez, has it really been a month since I've blogged? Time sure flies.
I've been at my new job now for a month. The novelty hasn't worn off. That's a good thing:) I'm working harder than I ever did at a desk job. My feet hurt every day. I smile at my customers even if I feel like they are on my last nerve. Some nights I'm not home til after 10 pm, the day is gone. My commute is 30 minutes when it used to be 10. But, it is so worth it. I was afraid that regret would come creeping in since I quit my other job, but I can honestly say that I have no regrets. A little bit of peace has come into my brain and into my life because of the change. I am no longer consumed by work. When I come home, I am here for my family and my spirit is here too. They have noticed.
In addition to my "regular" job, I still do the jewelry making. I used to have specific days that I devoted to it. Not anymore. My schedule doesn't allow that. Now, it's whenever the mood strikes. When it does, I am a jewelry making machine. I'm inspired again because I'm more content. No pressure allowed here. Besides, spring is here and it has awakened new things; new styles, new colors, and more warmth.
This blog is not supposed to be "all about me", but it has helped me take a new direction that I may have otherwise not gone. I didn't expect that. I am, though, so grateful that I have taken what is probably a "road less traveled" and revel in the fact that I am now on a journey that has allowed me to find both peace and confidence.
Enjoying the view on the road less traveled is the bright spot of my day. I hope you are inspired to take a step or two on your road. Until next time..
