Embrace the day

This is a new chapter in my life...an unemployed one as of today.  
While cleaning out my work space a few weeks back, I got a call for an interview for a new job for the following week.  I felt confident (maybe a bit too confident) that I would be a good match for the job.  So, as I walked out of my workspace that I have held dear and turned out the lights, 
(I kind of felt like Mary Tyler Moore in her last episode), 
I felt as if I had a bridge to walk on until the next week's job interview.

Needless to say, I did not get the job.  I found out early Monday morning...so on Tuesday, after a day of tears and wondering what I could have done differently, I woke up to a new attitude, a clean slate in life, a wondering of what the world had in store for me....

by Thursday morning....shear panic!  Oh My Gosh...I do not have a job!!!

Since then...(last week) I am trying to embrace the day.  
Each day has a lot to offer in showing me what I am meant to do next if I just trust and pay attention.  

I have a list a mile long of things that make me panic inside...but, I am paying attention as,
 to the self talk I have going on in my head....
(lots of negativity I must say)...
and am learning to turn those things around to be positive and patient.

  So, this morning, to treat myself,  I went for a walk downtown Plymouth and at Brewster Gardens.  I went to antique shops and craft sales and watched people out on their boats.  
Today I am learning to embrace the day.

Today what I learned is even when we are so fortunate to live where we live, to have people in our lives that we love and who love us, sometimes we get so wrapped up in what is going on inside of us that we don't enjoy it or realize how blessed we truly are.
A whole day could be wasted in worry, but that same day could be spent trying to figure things out while enjoying what is there
to be embraced...if we become present enough to notice.  : )
