So I managed to get some stuff unpacked yesterday. I got a desk set up in my office and my iMac so at least I can get the taxes done. And tonight I will hopefully get my daughter’s desk in her bedroom set up. Depends on how I feel when I get home.
I’ve really run my body ragged this time. With the move and the screwed up sleep patterns I’m pretty sure I’m going to get sick here if I’m not careful...
Mailed off the first mortgage check today so when that clears we’ll own at least a tiny tiny tiny tiny portion of our house. That’s pretty cool but the money crunch that will happen here momentarily won’t be so cool. I’ve got to get used to running on a shoestring again and that’s going to be tough.
LOL! The universe once again has given me exactly what I’ve asked for. Let me explain...
Years ago I read the original set of Well World novels by Jack Chalker and in them was a character named Mavra Chang. Now throughout the story Mavra’s fortunes go up and down until in one book she’s sitting on top of the world.
Then through a lot of different circumstances she hits rock bottom. While down there she reflects that she’s like a cat that has been too pampered and is thrown back out in the wild.
And that was how I kept telling myself that I needed to improve. I’d recall that episode and remark to myself that I’ve become “too pampered” and that I needed to fix that just in case or the universe would likely fix it for me.
Guess which one acted first... ;-)
It’ll be an experience for me but I’m sure it will be a good one. And I need to become much less pampered, more Spartan for lack of a better term.
So since I had so much focus on the issue the universe obviously gave me what I wanted. (It always gives you what you want AND what you deserve - you just don’t usually know it until it’s far too late.)
So once again, because I know it and I’ve realized what’s going on, I’m ahead of the game. That means it’s my roll... ;-)
I choose to move forward.
I choose to increase my skills.
I choose to walk the paths I set for myself not the ones set for me by others.
I choose to grow.
The question is “Where do I want to grow today?” ;-P
