It's been a while since my last post. More than a month. I feel a lot has happened since then. Many of my previous posts were a result of not being able to fall asleep at night. I'm not having any problems falling asleep lately. My mind has been at ease. Even right now, at 11:05pm, I can close my eyes and drift away if I wanted to. Before I do, I feel I should record the moment before the week I start my new job begins.
Yes, that's right. New job. Was it from the job interview from my last post?
As with many of the events in my life, the opportunity came out of nowhere.
And for this, I am grateful.
Grateful for the job? Sure. Absolutely.
However, I am more grateful for the way it happened: Unexpectedly.
As I embark on this new journey (sounds cliché, I know) with feelings of anxiety and excitement, I can't help but wonder what comes next.
I know great things do not happen without hard work; without preparation and planning; without trial and error; without blood, sweat and tears; without periods of joy and periods of sadness; without moments of reconnection and revitalization; and without pain and suffering.
I know whatever comes next will be so wonderful and beautiful, it surely will be a result of overcoming a new series of challenges and tribulations...and it won't be easy.
With eager anticipation and excitement, I can't wait.
I'll be ready, because as the very funny and very wise Conan O'Brien said earlier this year, "If you work really hard and are kind, amazing things will happen."
It's now 12:23am. Good night. The last day of my three-month vacation is tomorrow and, look at me, I'm actually looking forward to get back to work.
Oh, and congrats on your new show, Conan. I'm right there with you. New beginnings, indeed.
