Still Here and Yes, I Think About You All the Time

This makes me happy. A day outdoor while golfing with friends. 
When I haven't posted in awhile I immediately feel the need to apologize to whoever's out there reading. It's the same old song about how busy life has been and how I know that so much has happened since my last post so instead of trying to start from where I left off, I've decided that right now is the best place to be and move forward. History may repeat itself and there may be a back dated post here and there with some photos from special moments I've captured the last several months. It's what I do. Probably some form of blogging OCD.

So let's move forward...

How are you? What have you been up to these days? What have you found lately that has been helpful? Are you reading any good books? Have you met someone new? Have you found a new job since we last talked? Are you happy?

I want you to know that I'm doing well. Yes, life has been a six month marathon and in some ways, I'm in the last four miles wondering why in the world did I decide to run this race but I know somewhere deep inside of me, like way down where the soul whispers "carry on" and "you got this" that all is going to be okay...Like more than okay. And that's why I push on and that's what I find most helpful these days. Choosing to trust that in the valleys of temporary uncertainty, you can still remember to choose something better and bigger than you. Recently and because of a work related program, I read Erika Andersen's "Being Strategic." I found the book to breakdown the strategic process in a way that didn't make it seem like some big mountain top but rather the steps that we take to get us there.  No new job to speak of but I can say that I'm enjoying my current one very much since to date, I work with some of the most dedicated, dynamic, creative and just nice to be around people. And to answer whether or not I'm happy...{deep sigh} Yes, I'm happy.

I'm happy that I have a place to share and connect and process how I choose happy each day consciously. Sometimes that's what it takes. That and a lot of prayer. That's where I am but enough about that, where are you?

Are you finding what you're looking for these days? What has changed about how you choose to live and feel on a daily basis? 

I'll tell ya one thing...Let's finish this race together and let's make whatever is next, AMAZING.
