Two steps forward, and hopefully, this time there will be NO steps back!!!!!!!!!!!
Why, well I have made POSITIVE progress!!! YEH for me (happy face included)!!!!!
I am now a volunteer for a NGO here in Madrid, and I am feeling mightily proud of myself!!!!!! Today was my first day, and I have been busy completing some research for them; which is a task I love doing.
At the moment I am not ready to relate all the gory details of what I am exactly doing, not yet anyway. It is after all early days. Needless to say I have begun positively, and hope to remain that way too; fingers and toes crossed please!!
Since discovering the volunteer options available here in Madrid, I have noticed there has been a subtle change within myself. This little new spark of, positivity perhaps, has made everything seem a little ‘rosier’. OK, the change isn’t so dramatic that I could take on the world, and conquer it single handedly; BUT, I feel I am moving forwards instead of stagnating in that rotten rut. I have, I think and HOPE, taken a sledge hammer to that rut and demolished it!!! Hehe!!
For the next few days though, I will be away. We have booked a short holiday to Valencia, which we are looking forward to!!!
Upon my return, I look forward to recommencing my progress through this exciting new chapter of possibilities in my life!! I also have ‘Madrid Meet Up’ groups to attend, which should be interesting!!!!!!!! Who knows what new wonders will await 🙂
ONE LAST THING – I just want to THANK everyone who has been so kind in providing me with support during my ‘ranting and raving’ and negative moments. I have appreciated each and everyone of your kind wishes, advice and comments left as response to my posts. You are all truly wonderful, and kind people, who I feel privileged to have bumped into within the WordPress blogshere!!!
THANKS TO YOU ALL, and have a wonderful weekend!!!
Yeah, to your progress! Congratulations on finding a place to volunteer. I am glad that you are feeling a spark again. I hope you had a wonderful vacation 🙂
Thank you!!!!! Very kind of you Kira 🙂 Yes, I did, thank you!!
Congratulations and I’m glad your blogging ‘family’ could help. It’s amazing how supportive complete strangers are on the blogosphere. Or maybe the answer is that we are not complete strangers because we are reading each other’s thoughts every day?
Yes, everyone’s support has been great. I feel I can share more of the inner workings of my mind here!! I guess my WP family know me well! Thanks Malcolm.
Glad to hear of your progress. That’s worth celebrating!
Yes it is, only I am a little reluctant to as it is early days. Thanks though!!!
Congratulations, Bex!! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Great news! Congratulations.
Good for you. Go for it (have a good time on vacation)
Thanks, and thanks – I have and haven’t enjoyed it.
We all have rant and rave moments. I support your right to vent. 🙂
Thank you for supporting my right to vent – I need that and feel there maybe another one such venting process on the horizon.
Awesome news Bex! So glad to see some steps forward! Enjoy your vacation! 🙂
Thank you!!!! Yes, I think I will, thanks 🙂
Congrats. It’s great that you’re volunteering.
Thank you 🙂
