The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it. – Michelangelo
I like that quote. I have been thinking a lot lately about my goals – and setting higher ones. I just commented to someone yesterday that I think the head boss’s expectations of me are lower then my abilities. Then I went to meet with our new sales director (my direct boss now – she started on Thursday) and she made a comment that basically matched that – that she could sense that I felt that way. Woooo. She took that Keirsey test yesterday too, and her results were the same as mine! So here the results for me were that I am a “rather rare, say two or three percent of the population” and I get one for a boss! I have a good feeling about her, although I still wonder what “the plan” is for the future. The winds of change are in the air – but I’m ok with that. I deal with things better if I can see the big picture, the end goal. Then I can see my place in the picture much more clearly and I work more efficiently.
My parents had a garage sale Thursday & today (Thursday is the big garage sale day around here, that’s when the die-hard garage sale hunters are out). I made $110.00. (Giving $20 to my son for selling some of his toys) Such a nice feeling to sell stuff that we don’t need anymore and make some money off of it. I used part of the money I made to go get my hair cut this morning. I have bangs now! Yeah! I needed a change, so we cut light bangs that I can blend into the rest of my hair if I want them to disappear. I like them! I am really glad I did it. New look will be on the cam on Monday. I haven’t put a new hard drive in my PC at home yet, so the cam stays at the office for now.
I forgot to pull the images off of my photo CDs when I was at work yesterday. The CD player in the laptop won’t read a “burned” CD so I can’t pull them off here. I do have other images though that I want to add to the site, so I think I will work on that tonight. Yes, fun exciting Saturday night, I am going to watch DVDs that I borrowed from Steven back on St. Patrick’s Day. “What Dreams May Come” and “Meet Joe Black”. I have seen them both before, but it has been awhile. I saw them both on video, so I didn’t get that full “widescreen” effect. Also I think I am going to try to call one of the guys I have been exchanging e-mails with later on tonight. Have to get myself into that social chatty frame of mind. I know, seems hard to believe that I have to psych myself up for that, but I do. I talked with a different guy last night – it went really well. We talked for *two* hours. He seems really nice, and I may get to meet him in person tomorrow depending on how our schedules work out. I am excited – and nervous!
I am glad I have started talking to the “ad guys” again – I am feeling a lot better then I did a week ago. I have talked to the IO since our little talk on Wednesday. But he isn’t giving up the chicky-poo, he isn’t motivated to try to work things out with us, and I need to move on. I was upset about things on Wednesday, but after time to step back and look at whole picture I started to feel better. Like I said then – I could understand how he felt. I just have to accept it, and I am doing pretty well. Today’s horrorscope is pretty cool (courtesy of the MSN Home Page):
The only thing that stays the same is change, Libra. At this time last week, you were worried about things that you’ve easily solved. By this time next week, you could be gearing up for a major life event. You never know what is headed your way, but the Moon’s current Sign does everything in its power to help you chart and appreciate your progress. Try to keep a written log of everything you want to accomplish in the next few days.
Hmmmmm… written log. Blog. Interesting. Off to watch TV with Jason – they are showing the “Star Wars: The Magic of Myth” exhibit that is at the Museum of Fine Arts right now. Too cool! We are going to have to head down there and check it out.
