Changes

It seems like I just looked at the calendar and it was Monday, and now after a couple of blinks it’s Friday.

I’m definitely down off the high, but I’m running at a lightening speed.

It’s the most amazing thing to have clients happy to respond, willing to meet, looking forward to spending time.  This hasn’t been my experience over the last 5 years of my career.

Have I changed?  I think I have.

Has my practice of gratitude been a factor?  Maybe so.  Maybe that is what changed me so that I can receive better things.

Maybe I just made a decision that this time, I would do things differently?

I’m not sure.

I’m very grateful today for the 16 months that made such a difference in my life.

So, I leave you with a little Emerson.

Fantastic Friday

What a week.  What a wonderful week.

I can’t wipe the smile off my face.  It’s been an amazing awakening, deepening knowledge, and affirmation that our office completely Rocks.

.
My last job left me fired, unsure, unsettled, disillusioned….wrecked upon the rocks and convinced I wouldn’t go back.

The first three weeks my my new job?

I’m encouraged, empowered, celebrated, and clients are seeking me out.

My initial calls were with raving fans who hug me when I go, now new friends to enjoy.  I ended the week with my first new client sending a loan, and two more asking for applications and meetings.  I’m humbled and amazed.

My gratitude is overflowing.  The blessing in my life are chasing me down and leaving me breathless.

I went in the office today to bring in the “love offerings” a grateful clientele had me carry for them.  Cards, candy, goodies in baskets, notes, and 3 hug requests for various members of the team.

In my “magic” bag of offerings, I had a special gift for one of our team members who goes above and beyond.  I brought her a Tiarra, as she is the Queen of a particular client document.  When I presented her with her Crown, she got big tears in her eyes.  She gave me a big hug, and a thank you.  She needed encouragement, and my little $20 Tiarra made her day.

The notes, scans of the cards, candy, et al were all passed out.  It was the best experience I’ve had in a long time.

The momentum I feel gathering is amazing.  I am a rocket ready to explode into space, discover distant planets, and cure all the ills of mankind.  Well….at least I think I need a cape or something to cover me when the bad days come. 😊

It’s a great feeling to know that things are good, my Clients like me, and I have an awesome team at my back.

This week has been kind to me, encouraged me, and I am grateful.

Cheers to a great weekend!

Sunday Morning Gratitude

The weather has cooled a bit.

The sun has mellowed.

Today I am grateful for time to reflect, a clean house, awesome message at church, and my first paycheck in 18 months.

I’m very grateful to be employed.
