Wishing I had more Energy

I am doing quick update again.  I did not get the specific job I was applying for, the manager said he would keep my application on file and let me know if there is another opening.  After all the thinking & listing I did, before I applied for the job, I can't go back to the way things were.  I want to make the change, back to direct patient care.  Luckily, I still have a job, so no one is starving here :0)  If I had any doubt, I only have to take my personal test.  Ask myself, "If I knew for sure that I would die in 6 months, what would I do different?"  The answer is:  I would put this house on the market, buy whatever RV I could afford, and hit the road.   I can't do that for now, because I don't know for sure.  It does tell me I need to make changes as soon as possible.  Inertia is a hard thing to overcome.  It's so much easier, in the short run, to just keep the status quo.  Change takes cojones and energy.  I used to have cojones somewhere.  I'm working on both :0)  Hope all is well out there.  Take care and be gentle with each other.

Ask yourself where you want to be in five years. Then ask yourself what you have to do this year to get there. Then ask yourself what you have to do today to get there. Do something Every day. You CAN find the energy for one day.

A very small push can start a big boulder rolling.

At the very least, clear some of the little stuff that is in the way!

I believe everything happens for a reason, no worries, you are still working which is the good thing.
I also believe in the 5 year plan, picture where you want to be then and just look forward and plan for it.
Take care!
