In my defense, I was unsupervised in a bookstore with a credit card. Half of what I bought was Christmas presents, so I don’t feel too badly about it. It did cut into my writing time. And into my ability to actually concentrate on something which is hard — like pulling my Nano project out of the fire — has been subsumed by… a relief of stress? The end of an era?
I’m in the middle of changing day-jobs. In a similar industry, but a different company and a different level. It’s new and a little scary, but sometimes you just have to look for a challenge. Becoming discontent is a curse. I cannot stay in the same position for years. For some people, those who have found their niche, they have joy every day. For some people, it’s all about getting the paycheck and they are fulfilled by their home lives. For me, I have wanderlust that hits hard and heavy. I redecorate the house. I change out my wardrobe. I clear out my bookshelves or release things that I wanted or needed when I got them.
Now, I have an itch of that wanderlust, but I also have a deep, abiding trust in my gut and my luck and can only feel that I am going to a new, good place. That I will be able to thrive. I will find things that make me crazy and whine about them, no doubt, but it will be new things and new people. And maybe a few old friends kicking around, depending on where I end up. This is a small town we live in, even if it seems huge and cosmopolitan. You stumble over people in places you never expect them. And you find familiar faces where-ever you go. And in theory — I have a doppelganger who lives around here too. I’ve had some odd conversations, but no missing time. *winks* Maybe I’ll meet her someday; the twin I’ve never known and isn’t my sister.
I suppose I should tie this up into a little bow because I’ve started waxing oddly poetical, which means I should be heading for an early bedtime.
Talk to you tomorrow.
Wishing you happiness and health.
