This morning I woke up to the sound of birds singing. There were two or three of them, exchanging morning greetings in the form of chirps, tweeting and sporadic musical phrases. Perhaps they were chatting about how the sky lit up with explosions last night, about flowers in the dark sky and thunder without rain. Perhaps they were asking each other if they had eaten. Perhaps they were wishing each other a Happy New Year.
The first thing that I thought of when I woke up was, “I miss my darling” (really!). The second thing was how the sound of those birds really put me in a relaxed mood.
This morning as I wake up to a new year I realize that I have to put a lot of things behind me. Part of the process of growing is learning to learn from our mistakes, to gather ourselves, place our eyes on the horizon and move on, taking one step at a time. 2007 will be a wonderful and exciting year for me.
I have recently resigned from my job at my current company. I’ve been there for six and a half years. It’s a really great company. The top management is superb because they are always progressive. I have learned a lot there. However, the time has come for me to move on, because I have been offered better prospects elsewhere. It was an offer I can’t resist so I have to say goodbye to this company.
The process of leaving is not easy. There are a lot of pending items to deal with, and there are some problems that need to be addressed. All this is giving me a lot of stress, and I’ve had a very moody weekend.
I will be moving into my new home soon, I will be getting married, and I’m starting an exciting new job. I have so many things to look forward to, and I pray for God’s grace to protect us all from any misfortunes.
I did not prepare any resolutions this year, because I predict that I will be very busy this year. Too busy to work on improving my life perhaps, but I will always be on the lookout for ways to hack my life.
As I leave you now, I hear the sound of a puppy carried over the wind. One of the neighbors must have gotten a new doggy.
