Whatever Log! (Random thoughts, questions, opinions. I don’t catch enough dreams for a dream log.)
Remember, the difference between being grateful and showing gratitude is the WHY story. As long as you are writing your story of why you’re grateful, you can’t overthink past decisions, wish for the “good, ol’ days”, wonder how much worse your health will or question if anyone else will leave.
3.) I did Open House! – It’s been awhile. How long? 3 or 4 years. I attended Open House because my youngest needs backup with a specific teacher. She kept thanking me and I really felt I did something special. My eldest daughter was late to work taking us so BIG love to her for that. Next up? Let’s see if her stories about that teacher change at all.
2.) New gig – This may be a way out of insurance sales so I’m taking it serious. Nope, not dispatching. I’ll be a Talent Acquisition Specialist for truck drivers (CDL required). Commission-only but no real oversight. I’ll be able to start dispatching on the side and the two jobs are related. Yup, I’m thinking one will help the other.
1.) Something for my knees – I don’t what they’re called but the inside of my knees is so calloused that the pain has become a priority. They’re calloused because my legs are contractured. This wheelchair life is full of new discomforts, higher levels of pain. I had been thinking I should apply Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and my wife affirmed my plan. So far, no relief at all but I didn’t expect it either.
