I had to go out of town on business this weekend, well, business mixed with a little pleasure. I rented a car for the excursion, and when I showed up, AJ the manager handed me keys to a Mazda 5. Someone suggested this is God's way of helping me get in touch with my mom side. I still refuse to think it's a van.
I learned a really big lesson about being myself and saying what I think this weekend. It seems some people really want you to say that difficult thing that you think they don't want to hear. I mean, I know that's true for me, but I learned in a new way how important it is for me to say it to someone I care about even though I think they might not want to hear it.
I have a new office. I moved up the hall one office from where I was. I have more space and will eventually have a door cut into the back wall of my office to give me easier access to my admin assistant. The office switch meant moving two other people. I don't know for sure, but I may be the only one who is happy about the move.
I've had a lot going on in the past couple of weeks that's forced me to work hard at some things that don't come naturally to me. It's hard work for changes that I want, not the kind of hard work that seems never to bear any fruit. What I'm doing now is leading to some good things, and I feel really happy about it, but I have to admit, I'll be glad when it isn't quite so hard.
Life is good, my friends. Very good. But I really need to go to bed now.
