|You don't know what is out there for you, but it is probably GREAT!|
Work. Work. Work.
Jake and I have been working hard. Working to get some wonderful experience, as well as make money and get a little bit closer to sailing away and traveling the world.
The new position that I took is really quite the job. I am exhausted. I love it. It is consuming my life a bit, but I love it. It feels good to be productive, to feel like I am creating something. I don't feel like there are enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do.
All of this is a big change from my former positions. I haven't felt this way about a job since I worked with foster children with disabilities. I feel like I'm making a difference. I feel valuable. I love it!
I come home talking about work, and telling Jake all that I need to do, and he has been wonderful in giving me ideas, making sure we still have date night, and making sure we are still keeping our lives well rounded and not always just working.
Everything is going great. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I am so excited for the future. Jake is working hard and is getting more opportunities to be a leader at his workplace. Even though we are working long hours we know we have places to go, and all of these opportunities we are experiencing are getting us just that much closer.
At times there are opportunities that you cannot pass up. Sometimes plans need to be rescheduled, but not discarded to reach the goals you desire. I hope that all of you out there are continuously learning and growing and experiencing great opportunities. I have two days off coming up so hopefully I will have some pictures and some fun social activities to write about. Until then keep striving for wonderful experiences.
