I feel like I've been given a new lease on life.
I had my annual review at work this week and it went so well. Better than I expected. I love my job. And I feel truly blessed for it. I have a zest of life for it. That's lucky. I recognize that.
My boss gave me a much higher raise than I expected. He went to bat for me by putting in a special exception increase. I'm in HR. I manage the special increases, yet he did this as a surprise for me.
I manage HR for a growing mid-size company and my boss, the CFO (hopefully soon to be COO) and CEO see promise in me. I've delivered, no doubt, but it's nice to get back what I preach to our managers - appreciate your top performers!!
And I've been given a gift - the gift of a new opportunity. We're expanding into India and I will be managing this endeavor. Wow. I have no idea how I'll do it, but I know I'll do it. That's a good confidence kinda feeling. And I'm half Indian so this is especially meaningful to me.
Most of all, it's given me this new zest for life. I'm so incredibly excited about this. This may sound utterly crazy, but I actually don't want to get pregnant right now anymore. I know, I know. I've learned that us infertiles have little control over timing...
But I'm truly excited about this opportunity. And it's gotten my focus and attention away from the 'what if's' of growing our family. I'm excited about something else!!! For once. For once it feels like in a really long time. And that feels amazing.
I feel like God has finally shown up to give me grace through this opportunity.
