A pretty yellow flower to cheer me up before my optimism gets squashed again.
Today is going to be a long day, I can feel it coming. I have a meeting at work, at the job that has become like a bad relationship. I’m not sure we can turn it around. The thought of change is terrifying and exciting. I’ve been at my current job for fifteen years and I believe it is time to move on but to what?
What is the next chapter? What do I want to do? Where do I want to go?
In a job that is draining it’s hard to find the energy to be optimistic about an uncertain future. Especially when the past year has been such a blow to my confidence but I know that I am capable of more, that when I am excited about an opportunity and people believe in me I can achieve great things. So I will believe that there is something remarkable around the corner and once I close this chapter and shake the dust off, I will find it and put in the work to achieve it.
Cheering myself up with pictures of pretty flowers from sunny places.
I think that spring is now on it’s way, I want to believe and I don’t want to jinx it. So when it dumps another three feet of snow tomorrow you can blame me.
All I want is to not worry about slipping and falling on my walk to work. Also I would like to get my scooter out. Lastly I would like to see green and flowers because that always makes me feel way better about everything. It’s hard to get motivated and excited when it’s gloomy out. In the meantime I’ll plan another tea time with Eeyore, he understands.
On Friday I posted a picture of a peppermint rose which was my favourite of the roses at the lavender farm. There were many more beautiful roses and here are a few more of them, looking at them cheer me up on a cold day.
Love the orange and coral ones, so pretty:
Pretty red flowers I saw in my ride around the Glenmore Reservoir, yep back out on the bike and now too lazy to write a proper post.
They are very pretty flowers though:
I never tire of purple flowers and this one is one of my all time favourites:
