As I looked at the overview matrix of all my work projects that I’ve just created, it dawned on me that I’m really really happy with the way things have turned out. I’m managing NPD (New Product Development) projects again – it’s what I’ve always wanted and enjoyed the most. I’m living my dreams, and I love my job again.
It’s the end of a tumultuous 1½-month period during which I caught a very nasty flu virus, then became a first-time father, then caught a second strain of flu, then found out that my most major work project has been cancelled (due to lack of funds). And now, at the cusp of a brand new month, I’m making the shift from that one big major project to newly assigned projects, work that I enjoy so much more than what I had before.
I’ve gone through the rabbit hole and re-emerged at the other end with skies that are far bluer and sunnier and clearer than before. There’s so much to be thankful for, so much to be happy about today, and so much to look forward to in the days and years ahead.
