2016 is certainly becoming a year of change. First this challenge to myself and all the steps I am taking and now also changing jobs.
Before I get into some thought though I want to acknowledge my first official followers on WordPress. So Thank you to Tony and Joelle for following me. I ask people that read my posts from Facebook or Twitter to also check out some of their great posts.
I think this quote that is in the first picture is probably the way that I felt when I initially decided to do this challenge. 6 weeks ago I was at the point in my life where my depressive demons were certainly pushing me.

If you told me 4 months ago that I would be walking nearly 4 miles every day as exercise I might have told you that you were crazy and thinking of the wrong man.
I might have also thought you were crazy if you said that I would be leaving a job that I have been at for 13 + years.

Now I only have 5 days left before starting over fresh in another area of Occupational Therapy. This area I have not been involved in since my first professional job as an Occupational Therapist back in 2000-2001. Needless to say the butterflies and thoughts race through my head daily. But as they say change is inevitable……
