Isn't it fascinating how life really feels like a roller coaster? It seems like when you finally feel secure and comfortable with your situation, something happens to offset the balance and before you know it, you are back in an ever-changing environment. These feelings come from a positive place for me. I have blogged in the  past about my stagnant professional movement in this great city of Portland. Well recently, several positive job opportunities have come my way and I'm really not sure how to handle it. Before my energy was spent on remaining positive and having faith that something would come my way. Now I have just applied for a few positions and my energy is spent on, "if I get multiple offers.... how will I handle that?" and the timing issue? How much do you share with potential employers? It just baffles me how it is impossible to avoid anxious thoughts, even when positive opportunities are coming my way. Thankful is what I should be right now!

And for the record, I'm referring to multiple part-time opportunities... Nothing life changing at this point. I will keep you posted though.

It is all good really because it has forced me to step outside of myself for some peaceful solace and it is during those times when I remember my health, family and all that is good in my life! Life is too short to stress. I mean really, I have a seasons pass for Hood and the lifts opened last weekend? What could be better. As my wise cousin told me, "Enjoy this time, because you will have plenty of time in the future to be tied down". Thank you Alix for your direction. It has been more helpful than you know!
