Whole New World

It began about 4 years ago. Sort of like a hum.....which graduated into a buzz...which based on my actions turned into a full fledged roar. It was a desire to change my life. Not entirely...because I still like the basic creature comforts like a home, an automobile, food to eat and a Puppers to cuddle with at night. In truth though, I became discontented with my life. Call it a mid-life crisis, call it a gratitude deficiency...whatever it was although painful did start the ball rolling that would allow me to make some changes in my life.

I don't want to get too much into the whys and what fors but I have always been a workhorse. I might be considered a work-aholic. I might just have been dropped on my head as a child but I've always loved work and defined myself by my work successes and failures. I've also been very fortunate to love what I do. This life upheaval however prompted me to want to go in a new direction and forge a new path.

Is it scary? Yes. Is it gut-wrenching to leave my cohort and fellow trouble-maker and pot-stirrer? Absolutely! Did I spend the last two plus years trying to prepare for this moment? You bet your @%$!!!

So here goes it as I take a deep breath and leave my comfort zone and branch off to do my own thing!

Since I refuse to say/admit that I'm leaving (I'll still be hanging around but in a new capacity) and I can't believe my good luck at finding a top-notch "new me", the gang threw me a little "rite of passage" from my old life into my new!

Geez!! Do they think I'm going to the moon? Each handpicked goody came with a story and a lot of laughs. 

1) Crossword puzzles-For standing in those long estate sale lines
2) Bandaids (no tetanus shot included)-For those unfortunate rusty nail incidents
3) Sales Book-Assuming I ever sell anything!
4) Ropes and tie-downs and Bungee Cords-For strapping the junk to the roof!!
5) Glitter Notebook and Glitter-Because you can never have enough sparkle!
6) Sunscreen-For long days out in the sun at the Vintage Markets
7) A whole pile full of glamorous goodies like Foot Spray, Aspercreme and rubber gloves
8) Love......a whole mess of hugs and well wishes and warm fuzzies to carry into the impending days of the unknown.....

Look out world.....here I come!!
