To be honest, for the last few days I have done very little to move most of my current goals forward. The only one I got to really focus on with cherishing my family, enjoying what I have now. This weekend I went out to my parents house on Fire Island. I had such a great time. I got to have a good conversation with my dad, letting him know about the possibility I have of obtaining a car through a woman at my church. My dad is actually going to stop by Saturday morning at my church to take a look at the car for me and see what he thinks of it. I am glad that I got to ask my dad my dad for his help in this area. My dad, I know, has wanted to help me so many times but he has often been kept from helping me. Sometimes, this has admittedly happened because of my own stubborn “I can take care of myself” streak that runs through me. I am so excited he is actually coming to look at the car. He even offered to help me figure out car insurance.
I also had a fabulous time with my brother, sister in law and their children. They are really such an amazing family. I am grateful that I have such a great example of what parenting and marriage should look like. I even loved playing “truth or dare” with the family. Even if this led to eating some interesting concoctions!
I have a lot going on in the work world at this point. My mentor form the U.S. Business Leadership Network (USBLN) reached out to one of his friends at Bender Consulting. Yesterday I received a call from an employee at Bender Consulting asking me to touch base with him and letting me know that there is a possible job opportunity for me. I also got contacted by CA Technologies here on Long Island about an onboarding manager position. I have reached out to Bender and will be making the call to CA Technologies later today.
As for accountability, apparently, I need some of it really bad in two major areas. One, is my spiritual life. I have been attending Bible Studies, church and small group but I have made very little effort to have my own time with God. This is not good. I am getting frustrated with myself that I have made an effort to go to the gym five to six times a week but I am doing very little to take care of my spiritual well-being.
The other area is with my part-time job. I have made it a goal to make 20 calls a week to reach out to people. Do you know how many I made last week? Three. That is just pitiful. I think on the Facebook page there is a place where I can call in and state my goal but the timing is just off because I will be at work, where I am not allowed to make personal calls unless they are an emergency. Sadly, I don’t think this qualifies as an emergency. Maybe I can just post on the site when I get home.
Today, while I was on the elliptical I wanted to stop after one minute. I was tired and my legs felt like rubber. I kept going until I finished all 15minutes. Often times, this is what happens in my life in general–something is making it difficult but; not impossible to move forward. Sometimes, I may think I can’t move forward. But once I do get moving and I finish the drips of hard work and sense of accomplishment make it all worth it.
