It's been a pretty good week, which was much-needed after the miserable state that I was in just a few weeks ago. I'm not 100% but I'm feeling better. So...Five Good Things That Happened In My Life This Week:
*I talked to my dad - may seem like a small thing, but for me it's a big deal. My father and I were estranged for several years, but we reconnected & buried the hatchet when I was home last summer. Since then we've both made an effort to communicate & rebuild our relationship, and I'm very grateful to have my father's presence in my life. We had a chat this weekend about some of the things I want to accomplish, and he was very supportive & had some great ideas for me.
* My big project is turning out to be a success - I came very close to quitting my job in February - like just packing up my stuff & throwing them the deuces, and this project was a big reason why. It's been a trainwreck from the very beginning, and it got extremely bad, but since then it has gone much better. I managed to turn the project around & make it work, and now I'm finally getting good results. After all the stress of this project & the numerous hassles & hurdles, I'm proud of myself for making it through this very difficult project & literally kicking its ass.
* My new site is ready to go - I am so super excited to launch the new site next week. I've been working with a logo designer to design a logo for the new site, & I absolutely love it. Overall I love everything about the new site & I'm so excited to be blogging over there. This really is the culmination of the change that happened in my writing - I went from mostly random posts & not giving it much thought, to really being invested in my writing, my site & my brand. I hope that you guys love it as much as I do.
* I interviewed for a new job - the same day that I was interviewing technicians to work for me, I had my own interview for a new job. The job would be a promotion & a move into management, but I'm not sure I want it. I don't want to make another bad move, like I did with my current job, so I don't want to leap at the first job that comes my way. The interview went very well & they have invited me back for a final interview with the larger team.
*I kicked it with the homies - It's been a long, cold winter, and I didn't get to see my friends as much as I wanted to. Now that it's warming up, we're doing more activities. I spent some time kicking it with my friends SS & DN & it was good to catch up with them & hang out. It had been awhile, & I really missed them. I can't wait to have another spring & summer of the antics with those two, plus some of my other friends.
Honorable mention - I reconnected with an old friend. I made a move, & it was received well. Things have picked up like we never were out of contact, & I'm happy about that. I missed my friend.
It's been a good week. Hopefully next week will be even better ;-)
