On Falling...

It's been just under two years now since I left the mother ship for an opportunity with Embarcadero, and I've seldom looked back... until today. On this day, when most other Canadians are celebrating the birth of our great nation and the freedom it affords its citizens, I'm faced with commemorating a new found freedom of my own. I've been exiled from Cubicle Nation.

This isn't exactly the kind of change I had in mind when I wrote my last blog entry, but I'm committed to facing it with an open mind (seeing as I have no choice). I don't know what I'll be doing for income yet (if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them), but in the meantime I thought it would be an apt occasion to take another wordle snapshot of my blog (exactly six months after the last one).

So far, 2009 has been a challenging year. But, a friend of mine told me recently that a kick in the pants is still a step forward, and I'm inclined to agree. I really should be seeing this as more of a beginning than an end, and I'm sure that once I've landed with two feet firmly planted on my next venture, this will be obvious in hindsight. One thing is for certain, though. I'll not be looking back again.

Good luck my friend!

You'll look back on it as the day your shackles were taken off, and that's a good thing.

There is always scarcity for skilled people. You'll be able to find a better place soon.

This is an opportunity you have got to sharpen your skills.

Wishing you all the best!
