The Real Test.....

2008 has started out as an excellent year! My mind is blown away.....and it is only 27 days in to this life-altering year of the frog!

I am surrounded by very positive kindred spirits, who are encouraging and nurturing my mind, body and soul. I took a large leap and stepped out of my comfort zone at my workplace, and accepted a promotion. This ascension within my work company has caused me to think long and hard about my life's 5 year plan. Funny that, I never had a firm 5 year plan.....I merely floated day by day, week by week (but I did enjoy myself....!!!).....now I find myself actually thinking about where I want to be. Not in general terms, but serious "life" thoughts! Maybe this is a good push out of my rut. Who is it that says "Don't confuse the horizon with the edge of the rut you are stuck in" ....... !? I will admit, it is nerve racking to take on new challenges! Reminds a person they are alive.......

Now my real test. Can I maintain my health through all of these changes? I worked very hard over the past 6 months to obtain a certain level of health. My mind feels healthy. My body feels healthy....I must maintain!

On a good note....my new job means NO NIGHTS! Can you believe that! 8+ years of shift work, working nights.....and now, the latest I will typically work is midnight. THAT is going to be good for my body!!
