I'm happy to share my park. When I'm not there. When I am there, I can always find a quiet spot by the pond.
Today was our first really warm day of the year. The kind that stays warm even after sunset. The park was packed. Both parking lots full, crowds everywhere...I'm really glad this resource is there, because I think it's essential that people find a way to connect with nature. It's fun to watch everyone enjoy being outdoors. From a distance!
I'm still winding down from my day. I love days like today. Productive, yet nothing too tasking. It will get a lot easier when I'm not searching for information. I spend a lot of my days looking for information that the office manager could easily give me, if she'd return an email.
I'm making sure everyone knows how to do my tasks. I don't want to be stuck here! (I wouldn't leave them high and dry.) I don't know when the office manager will return. I'm not yet bored. It helps that I really like my co-workers. Everybody is pretty nose to the grandstone. There's a lot of work to be done most days and we're all responsible for different things. But since it's such a small office, we all hear everything that's going on. And comment. There's a lot of fun mixed in with business. (Not when there's a customer in the office though. Everyone is cognizant of the company's image.)
Great co-workers are a must.
I've always lucked out with my co-workers.
I know they're thinking of changing things up, organization-wise. It'll be interesting to see what develops.
Today. I just decided to Be. To be curious about the world, and unafraid. I'm mostly that way anyway, and this job keeps me out of trouble. I know other things are coming. Sometimes I feel as though I'm being stashed away and kept busy while other forces arrange things to my liking.
I know that doesn't make a lot of sense, but I don't have time to explain it. I'm focused on my sleep these days. I still only get about 6 hours, but that's enough to keep me happy and alert. (Plus, coffee.)
One thing that I've been aware of recently is that I'm truly, genuinely, happy almost all the time. I enjoy my kids, my friends, my pets, etc. This is the place I was trying to get to for so long.
I'm always going to want more. More love, more friends, more experiences. But I've found the trick of being absolutely delighted with where I am while eagerly anticipating what else will show up.
I don't know exactly how I got here. I just kept looking, and it showed up. I guess that's the key. I'm always willing to go further out. And I'm finally enjoying the journey. Probably because I quit worrying about how, and just thought about what.
