I've gone through some changes since my last post.
I've lost my job. I'm having trouble finding a new one. In this economy that's to be expected. So, I'm also looking at alternatives: Project work, industry switches, etc.
Today, I had to go out and visit my old place of work. I never liked it much. And I went to visit the restaurant where I went to lunch, which I'll miss a lot more.
It's odd. Never liked the job, never liked the people I worked with. But it was part of my life for 2 years, and I think I got used to it. So, I'm sad to be leaving. I don't think I should be sad, and I can only tell I'm sad by the strange, bad habits that are starting to come up. It's nice to be aware enough to at least realize I'm slipping into bad habits, even if I'm having trouble stopping them.
I'm not terribly sad, though. I'm looking forward to the new adventures that are coming. However, it's hard not to stand and look back. The past was comfortable, the future promises to be less so. And I like my comfort.
Lord, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
