Looking Back

It’s been over a year ago now that I left my previous employer and in just two days, it will be my 1 year here at my current employer. While there is the phrase “What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger”; I will openly admit that I’m not necessarily inclined to agree with that phrase. Or, rather, I should say that while that phrase may be true, it also doesn’t describe the whole story.

So, while I may indeed be stronger, I am also more cynical, less trusting, more jaded & less inclined to share things about myself. I used to feel very comfortable about writing blogs & loved the creative process. Now, I get a belly ache at the thought & have to really push myself to follow through.

I’m still a technology junkie, I’ve always loved the gadgets & gizmos that new technology enables. Now though, I’m far less likely to use technology that will “put me out there” to be noticed. We’ll see if that ever get’s resolved. Sometimes not being seen is a good thing.

With that said, the good, the bad, the ugly… well I know that life is not a well paved road, but more like a dirt road with lots of ruts & maybe some washboard areas. I would prefer the ruts to be less deep & a greater distance between.

    I think you’re exactly right about that statement not telling the whole story. I haven’t gone through all the same thing as you job-wise however for sure have been devastated by things that still haunt me from the past. Somehow I will believe for us both that we evolve into something stronger and better before it’s all over or at the least find a path of grace to not just endure but thrive.
