- I've begun training for a 5K run. (I mentioned it in my previous post.) It honestly freaks me out and kinda overwhelms me to think about the end, but I'm up for the challenge. I hope I can do it. I want to do it and that's usually all the motivation I need; my simple stubborn and strong-willed self. Each time I walk into the cardio room at the Y, I have to mentally prepare myself to accomplish the goal. I honestly psych myself up all day, getting ready to go for it. I LOVE the runner's high, even if I'm not officially running yet. It makes me so proud of myself!
- I had to say goodbye to a 13 year friendship. I'm not going to go into any of the details here to protect those involved, but it was a long time coming. When I was having the conversation, I was honestly surprised by how calm I was (a peace that passes all understanding). God's been trying to get me to let go for a really long time, but I kept giving it to Him, then picking it back up again. This time, it's for good. I know that and have accepted it. Part of me mourns, but the rest of me knows this is a good thing. Bottom line: I deserve better.
- God dropped a new job into my lap. I certainly wasn't looking for it and that's usually the time God moves in my life. I've done a lot of thinking and praying and receiving wise counsel from my parents/friends and I honestly believe this is right choice for me. I'm going to work for a friend of my parents. He sells magnets all over the world; does educational classes; had instructional videos on YouTube -- look up "Super Magnet Man" on Google and you'll find him. I'll be doing office type work, but there's potential to help him do website work and video editing. It's all been very sudden, but God's been in all the details from the very beginning. Plus, I'll be making about 60% more than what I'm making now. :)
How can you help? PLEASE PRAY! Pray for me... for strength, energy, determination, peace and whatever it takes for me not to get so stressed out. Also, please pray that we're able to find someone to replace me at work. There are many details left to iron out...
