Acceptance + Gratitude
Last week I was talking about changes, and they just keep coming, but I refuse to believe that God's not in charge, working things together for my good.
As of today (Saturday), I am 4 days away from the interview that I have been looking forward to, for about a month, now. As I have become less and less pleased about things at my current workplace- little things like clients continually (aggressively) coming after me and the other clients, as well as my supervisor lying to and about me and other staff- the possibility of a new job that I'm SO prepared for has been increasingly in the forefront of my mind. As if things weren't discouraging enough at work, after an especially eventful shift last week, I woke up with my back practically locked up on me.
So, yesterday morning I find out that there's an investigation going on and I'm suspended for a few days. I realise that with a known liar in the mix, it could turn out looking bad for me, even though I've done nothing wrong.
So, I have the entire weekend off, to spend with my son and my man? (It's been months since that's happened.) And just a few days left until I (hoping and praying) see about moving on to a place that can ONLY be better...It's not hard to feel pretty positive about the whole thing.
It's not the way I'd planned on transitioning from a to b, but somewhere I've figured out that God rarely uses straight lines, anyway.
So, tonight I hung out with my son. We worked together on repairing the cat tree, watched some Drew Carey, and had a light dinner. Then we did some yoga together and watched "Game Grumps" on YouTube. All in all, an exceptional evening!
Today I'll take care of laundry, and hopefully hit a meeting, then instead of working 14 hours on Sunday, as per my work schedule, I'll be home to chill with my boy and my man AND God willing I'll get to go to Celebrate Recovery!
See, it really is easy, today, to be GRATEFUL. Grateful that THIS CHICK's not in the driver's seat. Grateful that I'm learning to trust my Higher Power more and more, with each potentially scary situation.
I hope your weekend is a peaceful and productive (or relaxing, your preference) one. Have you gotten to watch God move in your life lately? I'd love it if you left a comment below, or if not, just tell somebody today how good He's been to you.
Until next week 😊
