I spent the past year back in college, after 25 years away, in order to get a piece of paper that I seemed to need in order to get a decent job in Kingston, even though I had almost 25 years of administrative office experience. Thankfully, with my new Medical Office Administration Diploma (Honours) in hand, I landed a very good part-time job in September at Queen’s University in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Medical Genetics, and work for two of the nicest, coolest, young clinical geneticists you could ever hope to meet. I am so fortunate to work with all the great people who run Medical Genetics at 20 Barrie Street and pray for a lengthy association with everyone there.
I know that for many of you, 2009 was a veritable shit storm. I personally know quite a few people who struggled with depression, personal loss and illness this past year and to you, I want to say 2010 WILL be better! It will be our year to celebrate the gods and goddesses within us. Sometimes life throws way too much crap at us and I hope that over the holidays we can take the time to reflect and to give thanks for the things in our life that are indeed positive. I know that it’s time for me to re-read The Secret and to reinforce the rules that apply to the Law of Attraction in my own life, and maybe you will too. We deserve to be happy and I truly believe that the Universe wants us to be happy. We just have to focus on the positive, live in the present moment, and be grateful for the little things of beauty that surround us and that we can see if we just take the time to look.
To my single women friends, my wish for us is that we finally meet the perfect person to share our lives with in 2010. There is no doubt about the fact that when we are in love, the whole world looks beautiful, and the hope and faith in our hearts shines as bright as the Star of Bethlehem. In the meantime, I pass along this Christmas wish from the divine George Clooney and hope that wherever you are, you are smiling.
Love & light,
