I can’t believe Christmas is less than two days away and a new year is right around the corner. This year started off full of uncertainty along with many trials and tribulations. Professionally I thought I was being punished in my former position/company with no end in sight. Then a miracle happened in late summer and the opportunity of a lifetime changed the game completely. You see it’s never on your time, but it’s always on time. Four months later I finally feel like I am working with a manager who supports and believes in me. More importantly my manager is a man and I must say it’s a breath of fresh air.
As the year comes to a close, I end it on a higher note. Since my departure from my last company I was able to be more active in my professional organization which resulted in a lot of praise recognition. I was awarded 2010 Outstanding New Member and Future Vision Award. I admit it felt great to be recognized by my peers and people I look up to in our industry. For the first time I truly feel like my hard work is paying off and I am on the right path. My, the road can be rocky and rough.
In my personal life My Guy and I are going well. We’re celebrating our first Christmas together this year. I usually go home for the holidays. We bought our first tree and I influenced him to get into the holiday spirit. I must say its great being in love during this time of year. However, everything isn’t perfect. The past month or so, we have run into the issue of him snoring. I don’t know where this little annoying habit came from? But it’s driving me crazy. I have had to sleep on the sofa and wear ear plugs. I’m seriously considering this anti-snore pillow from Brookestone. But this is the joy of living together and I guess I shouldn’t complain.
Merry Christmas to all!
