~~When you have something good, you don't play with it. You don't take chances with it. You don't take risks with it. When you have something good, you give it every single thing you can. Because when you take care of something good, that something good takes care of you.~~ Unknown
I was so very relieved and excited to hear that I got the job I applied for!! It's a second job so it's only about 15 hours a week but the pay is so good I may be able to save my car AND pay off Jake's bass trombone. And, secretly, I'm pleased because I'm not too old for anyone to hire me and I did worry about that.
So why that particular quote on top? Because that something good is....us. By quitting smoking, by getting healthier, by taking good care of ourselves, our bodies, spirits, and souls will take good care of us. I can't even begin to tell you how true I believe it to be!! I'm so pleased with myself for not shying away from getting a second job. I'm pleased that my yoga keeps me fit, focused, and strong. And I'm especially pleased to know that rather than relying on others to 'fix things' for me, I handle things. I fix them. It's a really good feeling after years of thinking I couldn't handle anything.
I'm so far from perfect it's not funny. I have bad flaws. I don't have all the answers. I cry. I feel vulnerable. I am alone. But I am so much in love with my life that all those things...well....I handle them.
I hope for each of you here that you realize how good you are and that you feel the satisfaction that comes with handling things. Knowing that you've got this. Feeling a kind of joyous peace that comes from knowing yourself and really, really liking who you are.
Ok, enough I just wanted to share my excitement of getting the job and being able to financially seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for listening. Really. I appreciate you
