Archive for July, 2017

Oh my gracious, it is July already! This year is more than half over, or if you’re the optimist, then we still have almost a half a year left.  And what a difference a month makes.  I am starting out July with a calmness that I would not have guessed back in June, and I’m starting with a new position with MedStar.

James Freeman Clarke wrote “We are either progressing or retrograding all the while; there is no such thing as remaining stationary in this life.”   I mentioned last month that there were going to be several astrological events in June, with a few planets going direct.  Well, whether the planets going direct had anything to do with my life, or if timing just happened to be coinciding with these events, things in my life have changed.

I was contacted by Hospice House for a position they had available and thought I’d be a good fit.  I interviewed, we talked, and I even worked along with one of their techs for a day.   But I felt like I was stuck in the grove of chasing my tail trying to figure out what I wanted to do.  Basically the old adage of the known chaos being preferred to the unknown…  I talked with Barrie, god she is so great at helping me to stop going in circles and pinpoint what my issues really are.  I am excited to say I will be starting my new position on Monday.

My last day on the floor was yesterday, and as usual it was a hectic, stressful and hard.  The other techs and nurses on the floor all voiced their excitement and encouragement for me, unanimously agreeing they think I will be wonderful in this new position.  Looking back at the first half of the year and all I went through with my career change, I can say for certain that I could not do the job I’m about to do without having had this job first.

Now that I’m getting my head out of my own self-absorbed thoughts, I’m realizing all the changes everyone around me has had this year.  It’s been a dynamic year with some really major things going on for just about everyone.  I think it’s very important to talk to people you trust and respect if you are going through big changes, or find yourself chasing your own tail with things you just can’t figure out.   Equally as important as taking time to be still and present with yourself.

In the very active summer month I hope you’re able to take time out for summer time play, and to sit and simply watch the lighting bugs light up at night.
