I started writing a post called, “A New Start” the week of Thanksgiving. Here is the beginning of that post:
Giving myself a month in between jobs was an excellent decision. I’ve seen a difference in how I feel physically, mentally and emotionally.
Monday morning, the first song I heard was the Goo Goo Dolls’ cover of “Give a Little Bit.” I smiled as I sat up in bed. For me, this song is my soundtrack to new beginnings. It was played often during my junior and senior years of high school and my dad and I would listen to it as we drove around the county in our old gray farm truck doing chores and running errands, getting things done. It’s the first song that played at the 2006 Indiana FFA State Convention after my teammates and I were elected to state office. It reminds me that it is indeed better to give than to receive.
