It’s spring! What a good time to change direction. After an excessive 3-month courting process, Other Candidate beat me in a photo-finish for a really hip job with Serious Potential Employer.
The surprising part? I’m actually feeling pretty good about it. Yes, it would have been right up my alley, and yes, I need a change.
But the advantage here is that I don’t get to rely on a new job to make that change happen. I’ve got to do it myself.
So spring cleaning it is! I’m getting more organized, more active, more joggaliscious, and more assertive. I’m making freelancing a real destination (instead of waiting for something else) and spending more time creating. I want to blog more seriously, and use blogging to really connect with new people. (If this is you, say hi!) And superficial though they be, I think a new haircut and glasses are in order as well.
There’s no one right way to go about changing ourselves, and I suspect that different things feel best for different people. I wonder if self-spring cleaning is as diverse as the folks who do it. I suspect so.
