Moving fast…

by Crystal N on January 30, 2006

Today while sorting through my stuff I came across an old favourite book of mine. On impulse, I picked it up to skim it again (it’s a nice thin one) and came across a quote I didn’t remember, but REALLY agree with – subject to qualification of one term in it. The quote is:

“Our charge on this earth is to exercise our gifts and talents to the maximum – and to care for all the assets that God has given us, including our bodies.” Dr Ken Cooper

Wow. Once again, I’m reminded of why I’m working so hard to get that final lynchpin in place with my health. I’m also very humbly reminded of the bigger picture. While there are issues with work, and the fact that they have cost cut on my equipment to the detriment of my health, it doesn’t mean that I have the right to back out of using my role to make a contribution to the world – despite all the obstacles they put in my way. I intend to, and to make sure that contribution is the stepping stone to a role that allows me to express my gifts and talents to a greater extent…

The book? You, Inc by Burke Hedges (click here to see my review of it on Amazon)

Now, to my progress. Seems like the contract hit the solicitors this morning, so I’m in there on Wednesday to go through it with him. Meanwhile the agent is discussing the possibility of an early settlement with the owners. The valuers have already been through, so that should be back to the finance agency soon, and the building inspection is already scheduled for this week. Seems incredible to think it was only this time last week that I saw it for the first time…

I went down to Fantastic Furniture yesterday and started looking around for packages for the new place. I may end up going light on furniture for a while until I find the right stuff, but it doesn’t matter. I’ll have the basics, and then I can work my way up from there. I was looking for a little 2-4 person dining table, then realised that with my own place, I was looking forward to having other couples over for dinner, and would be better off with a 4-6 person size. It’s a shift in my thinking and it’s really blowing me out how quickly I’m making it. Who knows, this time next month I could be in!?! At the very least, I’ll be in the final rundown to it…
