positive thoughts

my last blog post is a while ago now, when I was looking for another job. I am still looking. There has been one interview, for a job I would have loved, but other than that, I have seen nothing that grabbed me. Going pro on Xing has also not really helped, as Xing still seems to think I am in Germany, despite my best efforts to convince it otherwise.

But on the positive side, the work has picked up at the office, I have won an extra award or two, and they have given me share options; I think they must have got wind of my plans. After 2.5 years in the company, I am also seen as an experienced employee, and often the first port of call if someone has a problem. So lots of positives, which mean that I will stay for a while more at least.

And on that positive note, I have decided that for Lent, I am giving up negativity. It is way too easy to complain about the job, the boss, the spouse or the people coughing on the train. But it does not help. So for the period of Lent I have decided to focus on the positive and try to banish all negative thoughts from my mind. I will let you know how it goes.


wishing you all a great week

  1. After reading that post, I’ll probably skip the “how are you doing?” bit. But really – hope all is well. My new year’s resolution has been to catch up with old friends – if possible, in person… πŸ™‚ I already met one friend in the UK couple of weeks back. You are on the list too…:-) Let us see when that happens.. πŸ˜‰ All the best wishes from Munich!

  2. Brilliant idea, to give up negativity for Lent. What a difference it would make if we all followed suit! They say it takes 6 weeks to build a new habit, Sue, so I’ll be interested to follow your journey.


    • thank you. I am not the first with the idea, and giving up chocolate might have been easier πŸ™‚ but i am actually quite a positive person in any case, so I am keen to stick with this.
