Think I can excite change better than Obama has.

I have this pretty nifty blackberry storm phone, and I am amazed at the level of communication at my fingertips. I get my email on my phone. It still amazes me what we can do on our phones.. much more that Captain Kirk and Spock ever did with their personal communication devices. I get my horoscope sent to me daily. And my horoscope yesterday, said this….

Your horoscope for November 19, 2009

You are likely undergoing a profound change in the way you look at life. It is likely that you have made a conscious decision to look at life as a glass half-full, rather than half empty. For someone like you, who is accustomed to trying to control even that which is out of your control, this is a refreshing new approach. You will find that you are more relaxed and at ease than you have been in years.

Yesterday I worked on the floor at the hospital. I was working nights 7p to 7:30a, for the last 6 months or so, and for the last 6 weeks I have been working day shift (7am to 7:30pm). My mind is clearer when the circadian rhythms are back in wack. Took a pay cut, but feel well worth it.

You know one of the things I love about nursing? It gives you perspective on your life. Nearly daily, I disconnectedly connect with people. … at one point in the day, I thought…. “I need to taste life differently”.

2009 has been a great year for me. In a year that was terribly devastating and financially binding for many others. I feel grateful.

So today, its my day off. And here I sit in my room watching random television shows, while scanning google earth. And like a lightning bolt, a flashbulb went off in my head, and then an epiphany…

Now…. …

I needed to make a profound change in my life.

I needed to start tasting life differently.

I remembered the horoscope for yesterday. Was it the half empty glass thing, or the “control even that which is out of your control”, part…. Or both.

So how does one go through a profound change in the way you look at life? That change in view or perspective…. will change your life, it’s inevitable.

It’s time for a change.
