I was out running early this morning. Oh how wonderful the great outdoors are in comparison to a treadmill in my basement. I took the above photo as an afterthought…. I thought it wasn’t very pretty. I was focused on what was ahead of me. Just like sometimes in life, we think we know what is good, but frequently it is some other thing we aren’t even paying attention to that is so much better.
Many announcements took place at work yesterday. People losing their jobs, some being demoted, some outright gone. Funny, the gone people are all older folks. I’m sure that’s just a coincidence, right? I was talking with a woman from HR, just chit-chatting. She asked me if my move was “voluntary.” I looked at her like she was nuts and told her how excited I am. Later I realized that it might be a conclusion to draw – that I am somehow being busted back to being the MR director. To me that speaks to how little people understand about professionals in health information. Like just anyone could take that job! As a demotion!
So, it’s just life, isn’t it? Here is my reality at this moment: I am at my dining room table. The windows are open, the day is cloudy but warm. There is a beautiful pot of lobelia to look at. I am listening to Bach. My little place in this world at this very moment is stellar. So, I think I shall enjoy it and thank God for it.
