Now, I happen to feel that everyone should work to their strengths, because we can learn to use those better, but our weaknesses will always be weaknesses. We can't change them, but we can a way to not have a problem with our weaknesses, kind of like going around our shortcomings, as opposed to breaking our bones trying to surmount them. One can be effective and fun, the latter just gets you a heck of a hospital bill.
But I am very clear on a couple of things....we had our issues in the current economy early on and I am thankful for not having issues right now with my job, insurance, mortgage etc.
I am also thankful that my husband is now working for the Census, which is interesting in the sense of how DO you count over 300 Million people with accuracy and equanimity? The extra income will be good and allow us to save some extra money for us and for the kid's educations.
I am lastly thankful that I have not been sick once yet in 2009. This may in fact be borrowing trouble, but given how much I was sick last year, this is real cause for celebration! I think that deep chocolate ice cream and hard apple cider are in order.
I guess at the end of the day, I just feel a bit adrift. For three years, I was working toward my certification, and now that it's done and the book is done, I don't know what I should be doing with my self. Of course, spend time with the kids and husband, although he's focused on the new yob so that's a bit odd right now. And I also want to work on the business etc, but don't know where to start.
So when you are experiencing the unbearable sameness of being, what do you do?
