As the day unfolds and the magnitude of the responsibilities in front of me become overwhelmingly obvious, I have a certain calm about me. I am optimistic and happy and grateful to have something to do. Though I miss the interaction that came daily in my corporate world, I find peace in the solitude of my quiet, home office. I am productive, I am motivated, I am dedicated and focused. Something very good, very positive, very fulfilling is coming my way. My arms and eyes are wide open in anticipation.
