And the Gods were smiling down on me

Here I am, sitting in my new lounge, surrounded still by a few boxes, and a snoring dog and I’m finally in my new home and I couldn’t be happier.  They say that out of every bad situation, there is always something to be learned and I learned that I have to keep asking questions.  No matter how stupid they seem to some people, you have to push yourself10176127_626133047465476_2853261287819485521_n to ask, even the most obvious questions because they aren’t that obvious to you.

Wow!  Who would have believed just 9 months ago I would contemplate moving from my home, getting ready to wind up a job I’ve been in 10 years and find myself feeling better than I have for years?  ME!!!! That’s who!  I knew I had to make the move but as a per
son who doesn’t like change I realised that if I didn’t do it now I would be stuck, yet again, in an ever ending cycle of “same old, same old” – now I am putting my talents to good use and creating a home all on my own.  OK so the kids had to come with me but as a 25 and 23 year old they aren’t really kids and they’ve helped to create a place that is very very nice.  I get to do the walks that aren’t up and down hills, I get to take the dog for a walk – he now loves me more than ever.  Now if only I could get rid of the mud pit that is my very small backyard I would really appreciate it.

10312420_636393533107041_2137510324826331314_nBut wait, this is also teaching me another valuable lesson, patience.  Haven’t had a lot of it in the past but I know that I’ve got to work on it and this is the perfect opportunity to do so.

Patience also for the end of the year and finally the redundancy package that has been offered since December/January last year.  My life is great, it is definitely looking up and I can’t wait for the next instalment.

Get ready world, Kris is coming!!!!

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. What do I want to do? I have my new house and am enjoying making it my own but now I am looking for the right job for me after 10 years of being "just a receptionist". I don't want to be "JUST" anything anymore. I would like a job that helps me grow personally, something that encourages me to learn but also where I can be creative and people appreciate me. I want, I want, I want but really I need to know that I am comfortable in my own skin and my life means something to me. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".

      It’s so lovely to hear from you again Shirley. I was just thinking about the “Girls from Grace” just the other day, probably since I”m about to be made redundant again, although this time it’s under better circumstances. I do hope life has been treating you well and you’ve done lots of travelling. Would love to keep in touch, email me please – email: daysnetaustralia@yahoo.com.au or krisayache@gmail.com – so many email addresses! Ha Ha!
