Happy Wednesday! There's something about Sundays and Wednesdays lately. It seems anytime I have real time to sit down and blog, it occurs on a Sunday or Wednesday. *Note to self: Become less busy.
Actually, that's the basis of my post tonight. I'm not sure any of you sweet bloggers care about my day-to-day activities. Because, everyone is swamped and slammed and busy and running around like chickens with their heads cut off- whether you're a stay-at-home mom or a top executive.
But now that I've passed the 1-year-as-a-blogger mark, I am seeing how cool it is to look back and see what I was up to this time last year. So, mainly for me- I am centering tonight's post on what my life looks like right now.
And hopefully a year from now, I'll look back and say... something profound. :)
So, let's see. Here we go.
Lindsay! Here is what you are up to in the Spring of 2010:
Auction Network: What a blessing this job is, and maybe more powerfully- what it's become. You've worked there for 2.5 years now, and this seems to be the sweetest season of all. Your co-workers add so much laughter and joy to your day. Your job challenges you. And you are slowly stepping into the shoes (ahem- the HIGH-heeled) shoes of a leader. Despite 10-12 hour workdays, you are loving it.
Show and Tell With Peter Bedgood, also known to this blog as the variety show: If someone told you a year ago you would soon be helping produce a variety show, you probably... would have been very stressed out. But this has been the most fun you've had in a long time. You have made new friends who come over once a week, kick their feet up on the coffee table and have your back at all times. You have stretched your talent a bit and you're learning more about production than ever before. You're getting to express your bohemian, free-spirited, creative side a bit. Despite 10-12 hour work days at Auction Network and several meetings a week for this variety show, you are adoring it.
True Blue show: This is new for you. Freelance work. Real, paid, freelance work. You are re-learning how to log and edit video. You are honing your skills as a producer with interviews that make you do research and challenge you. You are learning what it means to manage your time, and a client. Despite 10-12 hour work days at Auction Network and several meetings a week for the variety show and a couple of hours a week logging footage and conducting interviews, you are happier than ever.
Whew. So that sums up my professional life. But it's so much more than that; I am growing more as a person than ever. I am absolutely in love with all of the people in my life and the opportunities falling on my lap. I'm blessed and so, so thankful that God has a bigger plan for me than anything I could ever imagine for myself. So, while these three "jobs" fill my day, there are a million moments- "family lunch" with my co-workers, nights out with my girls, family lakehouse trips, runs along the river, quiet time spent praising- that happen every day that continue to make this one of my sweetest seasons yet.
I feel whole. And that's a pretty great thing, seeing as God sent me through quite a loop this year. But I feel whole, and happy, and blessed.
There you go! Me, lately.
