why am I 'the mighty'?
For those who have followed my saga, you will notice that I have now updated many of my older blog entries to catalog them as part of the Lost Chronicles of Sarnia - for those of you not 'Fritter Critters during that era, the joke may be lost on you...
This is because I have begun a new chapter in my life and can truly say that my therapuetic venting has ended.
For closure's sake, here is what I am up to now:
Married my girlfriend of the past year.
Gave up looking for a job in IT.
Decided that teaching was not for me (at least not pulic high school).
Re-evaluated my self and my skills.
Conlcuded that the best career match was the Armed Services, (specifically, the US Army).
Those who actually know me find this is such a starke difference to what many expect from me. Truth of the matter is, I do have what it takes (although the running will take a LOT of getting used to). With all I have been through, I can handle the psychological strain of anything that comes my way. It is somethinhg I must do for my children and is a long-term decision I am making.
There are still more big changes for me in the works (I may share some here later) but the big thing is that I got through the worst of it and turned around what God let me and let go what he showed me I should. It is life re-booted with a couple of glasses of lemonade to spare.
Throughout it all, there is one thing I always knew: I would and could endure. This is my greatest strength and always has been. I endure. This is what makes me mighty. No matter how bad it is and how bad it leaves me feeling, I am mighty in that I will endure.
I am doug-doug the mighty.
