Farewell to 2010. Welcome 2011!
I finally have gathered all the guts I had left and quit my job which I have had for almost 10 years now. I know it is not that long to some but if you really do not have your heart in what you do anymore, another year would be like forever. So I just did it. I quit. Today is my last day of work. I watched the busy streets as I drove off to work on my last day. The Christmas season has formed a major traffic on some intersections. The breeze is cooler. The hearts around, warmer. My mind wandered somewhere else. Stepping on the brakes as the stop light went red, I smiled. Oh no, nothing is going to stop me now.
So what is in store for 2011? Travel. I have had a blast in the years that had passed. I got into the world of sales and learned the meaning of competitiveness, organizing, assertiveness and yes, a bit of the art of kissing ass. I cried, laughed, smiled, flew and swam with different faces in different places I could have just imagined. The pace was fast. I went farther and nearer and then last August, I got married to the man to whom I learned to calm and slow down a bit. It was quite a journey. It still is. So this coming 2011, I am not going to stop traveling to distant places and learn more in every experience I encounter. This is the year where I end one bombastic journey and start the slow paced one.
I am at the beginning. I am armed with excitement and I am ready to go.
