It’s been like a new planet, a new life, a new beginning. Spring is breaking through in Montana and over the last several days the sky has been clear, the sun up, the days much warmer.
The snow is melting, I see more people out walking dogs, running, and more smiles. It’s been a tough winter in Montana. Lots of snow and several below zero daytime temperatures, without windchill.
This is my second Spring in Montana and it feels like I have earned it. One earns their Spring in Montana.
I knew goodness was coming, I could sense it.
I had a situation at work that was causing me stress and uncertainty. I don’t like discord, I much prefer harmony. You know that person who enjoys conflict? Yeah, that’s not me. Nevertheless, this work situation, it was sketchy and I knew I needed to address it if I were going to be able to stay with the organization in good conscience.
So I addressed it in the best way I knew how, there were probably better ways, but I addressed it. This situation has been going on for many years and as a result, addressing it has caused some blow back and frustration by those close to the little process they have built.
My mentality was, I am not going to turn a blind eye to what I know is improper. While I did have to address this, I feel good that I did. My head is held high and my feet are firmly planted on the ground, I stood with integrity, personal integrity.
My youngest son flies into Montana today and I cannot wait to see him. We are going to ski, eat some good food, hit the hot springs, and enjoy each other’s company.
I do love my family.
