That warm, fuzzy feeling


You know the feeling you get when you KNOW you’re in the right place with the right people? And in the right time? That warm, fuzzy feeling that creeps up and feels your chest with warmth? Yes, that one!

It dawned on me recently when I was chatting with a co-worker and I felt myself filling with joy — I’m in the right place at the right moment with the right people. I’ve had many moments like that lately where I just KNOW that all is where it should be and I’m on the right path in life and it feels pretty damn good. It’s an important feeling for me as I’ve worked hard to get to this place in life. I’ve worked hard to find the right place to work and surround myself with the right people. When you are soul-searching for what’s right for you, sometimes you have to make some tough choices about your career and people in your life. I’m glad I’ve made those tough (and sometimes painful) choices. Because I’m right where I want to be and right where I should be at this point in my life.

As we head into the holiday season, I wish all of you peace, joy and that warm fuzzy feeling.


Adventures in BrandyLand


Recently I decided on a slight re-brand of my blog. I’ve been VERY lax on blogging lately and it dawned on me — perhaps my blog is too specific. I love writing, but admit I wrote more when I blogged about anything and everything and I’ve never really been good at focusing on one task for too long. (Proof is my four unfinished manuscripts).

So, welcome to “The Wandering Pigeon: Adventures in BrandyLand.” But wait, let’s back up a bit. How did “BrandyLand” come about? Well, funny you should ask. Okay, so you didn’t ask, but I’m going to tell you anyway. I was chatting with my boss last week about my office (or something, I can’t remember exactly what) and the word BrandyLand came to mind. Then, later, she added “It’s like Candy Land only better.” And, it stuck. And now I totally need a “BrandyLand” sign for my office door.

So, while this blog will still focus on gratitude, it will branch out into other topics, because life moves forward and so does this blog.

Onward! (And more later).
