My life has taken a seriously hairpin turn for the better in the last couple of days. It was a bit less than wonderful before the changes started. It was getting to be a bit of a drag, honestly. And then a slew of related and unrelated developments and changes started… like a well-placed pattern of dominoes awaiting that first domino to fall…
Although I can’t go into all of it right now, I can say that I’ve reconnected with an old friend, I’ve put one seriously PIA part of my history to rest (may it RIP forever), my son and my husband have had some GREAT news, many “pending” items — the stuff that has left me in limbo for months and even years — has started to resolve itself. (Have I mentioned how limbo is my least favorite place to be in life??)
And, there’s a serious trend toward accomplishing some of the things that I’ve been working on for some time without much success. It’s kind of like banging my head into a brick wall so many times because I’m driven to do so, or because there really IS no option and assuming that all I’ll accomplish is a rather calloused brow — when suddenly…. a brick begins to crumble… and then another one and another one…. and suddenly there’s a large hole and the sun is beaming through and the cold, dank place where I was standing is now flooded in warmth and light and all I can do is smile. Yeah, that’s what today is like!
Over the next few weeks, I’ll unravel all this in more concrete terms. For now, I’m just happy. Of course things are still worthy of worry — I am, after all, Angela — but I’m smiling more. I’m happier. And I’m planning a HUGE bonfire of papers and old baggage in the near future to cleanse my mind, and clear my space.
Ironically, today is also the first annual OneWebDay – a day designed to demonstrate how the Internet has changed lives. In my own case, it’s been an amazing shift. Without the ‘net, I’d not have the business I have, I’d not be able to “self-educate” on topics that interest me from the comfort of my own home or my own office. My ability to write and share my thoughts would be more limited. I’d not be able to communicate with those most important to me as often or as easily.
All I can say (at the risk of sounding like a heretic) is God bless the Internet!
It’s helped me to achieve my dreams and make my way in a world that thrills me and keeps me interested in expanding my knowledge and improving the quality of my life and the life of those around me. It makes it easy to do what I do, to work like I work, to live like I live and to make the choices I make.

And I hope YOUR day is as sunny as mine today (despite the rain drizzling outside my office).
