I survived what I considered a Major setback when we failed the certification, but in the early ‘90’s, I did become a manager once again. God had to get me ready and now was my time. I was no longer “defensive” (for the most part). I remember being in a staff meeting and I was given, what I considered an “unreasonable” (rather dumb in my opinion) request. I responded, “So what do the rest of you think about that idea?” When I saw the expression on their faces and it appeared that they truly understood my point of view, I knew that I had passed my initiation.
If you still haven’t made the connection, please continue to read throughout my journey. There are things in our work and our home lives that occur that are simply out of our control, which makes it critical to hold on to the moments of Order that we can create. Life, in this day and time, can be so very stressful. We must do anything that we can do to minimize the “stupid” stuff that really doesn’t matter anyway. When we organize our day to maximize our quality time with family and friends, and promote those things that give us peace…..
We then capture the Joy in Life that God intended!
