When it comes to spring, this year’s arrival of it has felt long overdue. Between a winter stubbornly refusing to go away and the many delays accompanying my home renovation, I have been yearning for a change of season.
This week, I have finally been feeling spring’s rejuvenating presence – and not just because of the slowly climbing temperatures.
On the job front, I received some very exciting news a few days ago. The details are still being worked out but what I can say right now is I’m about to have twice as many reasons to love going to work every day. At eight months into my journey with Starwood Hotels & Resorts, I remain very much in the honeymoon period. After so many years of being a career nomad, I finally feel like I’ve found my professional home. It is a blessing I am thankful for every day.
On the personal front, I’m sprucing up more than just my abode. I’m taking better care of myself thanks to Weight Watchers, and I’m broadening my social horizons through a new book club (thank you, Meetup.com) that I’m excited to join.
Amidst all of these developments, it is my love life that has offered up the most unexpected, completely out of left field surprise. I recently reconnected in a big way with an old flame for the first time in years.
If I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s the wisdom of not revealing too much here in my little corner of the blogosphere. So I won’t say anything other than that this guy is a wonderful example of life’s more welcome twists and turns.
As I savor each of these new beginnings, I am also thinking about the tragedy of what took place in Boston this week. For me, it was a sobering reminder that every day we’re here and the people we love are healthy, there’s reason to celebrate.
Wishing the comforts of this season to every Bostonian, and to all of you who take the time to stop by here.
