These clocks need to be turned back! Who was the genius who decided we should have DST for eight months of the year? Probably someone who didn't need to function early in the morning while it is still dark.
I just wrote three paragraphs about work and erased them. I have a feeling that someone from work is reading my blog. I don't even know who, but I just have a feeling. I have been successful over the years at leaving work pretty much out of my blog, I guess I better continue to do so. But I think I am going to have some good news on this front within the next month. I start to get anxious about this, but I have to remind myself that I am living in God's will and that is precisely what will happen - His will, not mine.
When I was drinking and then in early sobriety, I craved the stability I saw others had. I wanted to work at the same place for a whole career. I wanted to live in the same house all my life. Etc. But I have now had this kind of "stability" for seventeen years in my career, and ten years in my house. I am realizing this is simply not my style or nature. I am itching to change things. I cannot sell my house because of the housing market - well, I COULD sell it and not lose money, but it wouldn't be a particularly SMART thing to do. And I have felt stuck in my job for several years now. I am ready to change that. A month or so ago, I would have told you how hopeless this was.
And now, it looks like God has moved in my life - the way he always has. In his time, not mine.
I am grateful, grateful, grateful. And I think I will stay sober today - I hope you do too.
