I have been told, “This time is a gift.” I have to say, Universe, at the moment I respectfully disagree and I likely will until I get to look at it in retrospect from my happily employed position. So let’s get on to that so I can admit you were right.
What I can say, is the time I worked over the past year was a gift. Not only did I get to figure out that there is an aspect of my profession that I like to do, I got to try living in a place I had been wanting to live for quite some time. And now that I have lived here, I can let it go. Some of it was great and some of it was so-so, but I’m glad I did it. Not to say I wouldn’t want to come back to the area, because I like it here, but now I can wait for the right situation to come back to.
I gave notice on my place a couple of weeks ago and I will be moving out at the end of the month. It’s a bit of a whirlwind and this place is starting to look much as it did when I moved in, but it’s okay. I’m okay with this. I’m happy to be able to retreat and save some money and I’m happy to be moving somewhere where I won’t be on my own for a while. I like my own company, but there are some limits.
Here are some more gifts from the last couple of weeks:
April 22 – Great leftovers for dinner.
April 23 – This was my birthday and I am grateful for this life.
April 24 – A well-timed call from a good friend.
April 25 – It turned out that I can move earlier than I thought I would.
April 26 – Several moments of inner peace.
April 27 – Spontaneous lunch plans.
April 28 – An unintentional break from the internet proved surprisingly restful.
April 29 – A neat experience during my volunteer time today.
April 30 – I could see the good potential for a possible work situation.
May 1 – I accepted an opportunity to receive some nurturing from a good friend.

I hope you receive many gifts this week.
