Well, kids, I’m home!
About 10 hours ahead of schedule and no red-eye (score!). With the pending snowy weather coming and the cancellation of an important meeting this afternoon, my boss got me on a quicker flight home (reason #257 why I love my job already!). I was beyond ecstatic to race from the building (given my flight was booked, oh and hour before it took off. And as you know, I’m a planner. I was freaking out that I wasn’t going to make it, but thankfully the airport is 5 mins from their offices!).
So, I am now home, I am unpacked, laundered and cleaned and I’ve only been home for an hour. (the routine I miss is in full effect, please don’t judge. Giggle.).
And this quote looked oh so perfect when I saw it on a friend’s Facebook page this week, for “quote Friday” that I plan to re-institute here (on occasion).
“It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more wisdom to abide by thought out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in the muscles and an immature mind.”
The first and last parts of this quote jumped out at me immediately and they really feel like my mantra for the next six months as I wade into the unknown waters of my new job. I need to capture my courage and my toughness and bring it, and those are two areas for me that have been weak in the past. A huge challenge to keep them at the forefront, but after this week, already, I feel the confidence rising from within, that I can do it.
And I thank you all for believing in me and rooting me on…it means more than you know. Happy weekend friends!
