Oh Happy Day! (forgive me my personal note)

I am feeling very blessed and grateful today!  After three long months of looking for a job, I am excited to say that I will be a working girl as of Monday!  Hooray!

Going from crazy, busy, stressed out to sitting around trying to fill my days was much more difficult than I imagined it would be. I have definitely gotten into the "unemployed blues" as of late so I am very excited to break free and feel more like myself again.

I want to remember the way I feel today.  So, I  turned to an empty page in my journal, got a stack of pretty pens, and started to write every word that came to my mind.  I didn't analyze or judge my thoughts, I just kept it positive.  It was a great way to reflect on all of the blessings and joys in my life.  It was a great exercise in the power of gratitude and positive thinking.  I hope to be able to go back and reread the words when I am having a rough day or feeling doubtful about myself.

Life is full of JOY, sometimes we just need to look a little harder for it!


  1. Congratulations on the job!! I'll be going through that same process here in a few months myself (current job being moved to the corporate offices) - I've already started an inspiration journal to help me get through it. Enjoy your new job!!

  2. Yay!! I'm glad you found a job!! congrats!
