Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
Earlier this month, I celebrated two years here in the Pacific Northwest. It’s been a tumultuous two years full of ups and downs.
For the majority of the two years (let’s be honest, all but 15 weeks because I got a job but was laid off just 15 weeks later), I’ve been unemployed. I mean, I’ve always had the Navy Reserves and have done stints of active duty there (and am just finishing up three months of active duty), but for the most part, I’ve been unemployed.
But two weeks from today, I’m starting a new job. I’m going to be working as a Navy civilian on the local base. It’s a dream job. It’s also a two-year “term” job… which means it’s only around for two years. But who knows what will happen. In that time, it could be extended or it might stay two years.
Wow. A lot can sure happen in two years. I wonder what I’ll be doing/where I’ll be in two years.
What do you think will be happening in your life?
