It’s been a rough couple of weeks in Karenland. Which, of course, means I did learn a few things. There has been quite a bit of pressure at the straight gig, and although I do sing there, its not like a regular gig. Very corporate is the best explanation I can give without going into what’s happening to me there. Everyone has tough weeks at their straight job, I know. But , it doesn’t make it any easier to get through. And, I have decided to use what’s going on as impetus to get my booty in high gear!
Now, the good news is that all of this is my choice! I can choose to stay unhappy in this or I can take all the steps I need to take to get out and move on and still take care of my family! Obviously, that doesn’t mean all these choices are easy. I can already think of a few that are tough. Perhaps its those tough choices and challenges that will make the winning so very sweet.
One of the best things I heard this week was from a friend who, while we were enjoying a glass of one of our favorite Chardonnay said, “You are the average sum of the 5 people you hang around the most”. Her boyfriend heard this quote at a seminar he was attending. Wow. We sat there determining who we spent the most time with and we had to account for the people we work with and ugh! Not really spending time with loving, caring and uplifting people as much as we thought! Back to those hard choices!
Tomorrow is the first of March and the signs of Spring are everywhere here in Las Vegas. Time to make great choices, do some Spring cleaning in the head and heart and home and spend time with those who lift us up!
