A whole heap of good came my way. Can I please put some good back out there for someone else?

You know how the other day I was all whine, whine whine, my job doesn't want to hang with me, new bosses, sob, boohoo, why does everyone hate me so much? And in my mind I threw in a side of, "You don't even know me! Or understand me! I'm complex and maybe you're all a-holes". It wasn't directed at you (I would never, ever call you that), it was probably directed at my parents when I was 16 and my peers from the same period, but it is still hanging around inside of me, dressed in black and rolling it's eyes... a lot!

Anyway, so I did that, I whined, I felt better. I put my angst out there for the Universe to have its way with it, and it did and then something weird happened.

The very next day I was promoted. Like that. Like my boss went to lunch and came back and was all, "Can I see you in my office for a minute?" and then I was all, "Whut? Huh, so soon?"

So there you go.

I'm insanely, and I do mean INSANELY, busy in this transition stage of my working life that is going to be performed in steps until I return from a long holiday break and start a whole new era on January 4th. In the meantime, it's really comforting and reassuring to know that there are people out there, people who have worked with me for three and a half years and have this sense that I can be successful in more than I am now. And that I can be more than I have been.

And here is where I want to give those good vibes back if anyone at all is interested.

I'm thinking of a giveaway.

A giveaway of something I've made with my own two hands, because right now, I actually feel like someone might actually appreciate something that I am able to create.

I really, rarely feel like that.

So tell me? Would you be interested in one of my knitted goods?

I have a giant smile on my face right now. It's sappy, but I'm so happy for you. I'm returning to work next week from a year's maternity leave and feeling pretty damn freaked out about where my headspace is.

Jules said...

I think your change of luck is a mixture of Karma and the new hair.

Here's the big question. For me at least. Will you still have your rockin job title that I covet so much??? Or do you get a cool new one?

I don't need any knitwear, but I wanted to say how happy I was that you had a whole heap of good. Sometimes it is a long time in coming, and I'm glad you got a little!
