I know I have not been blogging much lately. I have been so wrapped up in work and trying to be “perfect“ as a new Manager that a lot of my passions have gone to the way side.
The good news is because I have been focusing so hard on a job that is positive and good developmental wise, the destructive relationships that were surrounding me before are no longer encompassing my life. I used to feel like they would haunt me and had some sort of power over me, but I no longer feel that I care. I have been set free. Don`t get me wrong, they are still trying, but no longer have a hold on me and my self-esteem in my life.
Something happened to me in the last few weeks. I attracted the RIGHT person.
How do I know he is the right person? He thinks I am special and makes me feel special. He is a family oriented guy, positive, kind and compassionate. He pretty much meets every “checklist” item I have.
He makes me smile.
There is no drama, no questioning, nothing.
Now I am not saying he is “the one”. I have known him for a few years through work but it wasn’t until recently I started to think he is special, that I may want something more with him. I guess I just was not ready to notice it until now.
One problem: He lives in a different province. I only see him for Leader team events and special work meetings.
It’s not the perfect situation and believe me with my walls, I am fighting it. He said he will come to visit me when I am ready, that he would pay a months salary just to be with me for one week. But the more and more I talk to him the more I find myself wanting to open up.
I actually felt proud of myself for attracting someone positive. It made me realize that I AM in a positive place now, that I have grown.
When we start attracting the right people in our lives, we then realize we are on the right path.
It’s nice to be smiling.
