066: I am grateful for new beginnings

As you may have noticed I took the past couple of days away from blogging. I was fairly busy as I had a few things to prepare for the start of my new gig as the blogger / social media coordinator at the DOXA — Documentary Film Festival. Yes, I am working outside of home again.

I got tired of looking at these forest green walls here in my home office. Working you own hours in your pajamas is nice and all but I really missed interacting with other human beings. Thankfully I am in a busy, social office so I will have plenty of contact with people. What a relief. The cat, although lovely, is not a very decent conversationalist.

Believe me, I have tried.

What is a new beginning?

A new beginning, in this case, is a fresh start; a reset; a happy point from which to look nowhere but forward.

I’m excited I get to do such a cool job. Not everyone gets to do something they love to do and get paid for it. I am so blessed that I get to work in a funky neighbourhood with interesting and super-creative people. I am even blogging from a MacBook Pro courtesy of Mac Station and DOXA.

I did not really even have a desk at the last place I worked… no kidding. This is much better. It’s nice to be appreciated right out of the gate.

First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination. ~ Napolean Hill

I knew it was possible. I saw myself doing this kind of job, and now I’m doing it. How about that? Visualization actually works. It’s totally true. When you can hold a clear thought in mind long enough the Universe will move mountains to make it happen.

I sure have tried a lot of different things.

Supposing you have tried and failed again and again. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call “Failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down. ~ Mary Pickford

I’m amazed at what a few hours getting situated at a new gig can do to a guy’s energy level. I am completely sapped. I am not complaining. I’m actually glad to be tired. I am going to sleep like a baby tonight.

That’s pretty much all I can muster for now. I will post a link to the DOXA blog when I am posting on it.

Thank you DOXA for the new beginning!

    New beginnings used to make me nervous (many moons ago), but now I’m grateful for them. They can refresh and revitalize.

    Thanks you DOXA for recognizing how great Mike B is.
    And I wonder are you allowed to wear you pajamas to the new job.
