…so why not have something to show for it? I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m really glad to be going back to work in an office on Monday. I’ve been working from home for my old firm back in Dallas, but the colleague who will be taking over for me is so competent that I’ve been more of a periodic advisor these last four weeks. Recently I’ve been feeling a bit restless and frankly, a little less valuable to the world.
The dissatisfaction took a few weeks to set in, probably because I needed a little break. The run-up to the move was chaos, compounded by me trying to make charts, maps, and schedules in order to feel in control of the chaos. And once I was here, I sank into enjoying the gorgeous beauty of San Diego and being 1,300 miles closer to my guy.
But last night at dinner with friends, when it got to my turn to talk about life’s daily adventures I had nothing. My day had been errands, and conference calls, and way too much time online. Not much worth writing home about. I’ve been thrilled to have the time to research the perfect job, unpack the last box, get to know the neighborhood. But I’m a dynamic, engaged, innovative individual. I want to be doing dynamic, engaging, innovative things.
So in case you’ve been thinking, “things are a little quiet around here. What’s different?”, I just want you to know: I’m back.
