a song for Sunday

since my friend roped me into her project   i have actually started to deal with things that i have been through & thought not to deal with:

this song means alot to me:

Song Title: Reflection

Artist: Christina Aguilera

Lyrics (or watch the vid here)

Look at me
You may think you see
Who I really am
But you’ll never know me
Every day, is as if I play apart
Now I see
If I wear a mask
I can fool the world
But I can not foolMy heart

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

I am now
In a world where I have to
Hide my heart
And what I believe in
But somehow
I will show the world
What’s inside my heart
And be loved for who I am
Who is that girl I see
Staring straight
back at me?
Why is my reflection
Someone I don’t know?
Must I pretend
that i’m
Someone else for all time?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

There’s a heart that must
Be free to fly
That burns with a need
To know the reason why

Why must we all conceal
What we think
How we feel
Must there be a secret me
I’m forced to hide?

I won’t pretend that i’m
Someone else
For all time
When will my reflections show
Who I am inside?


Where has the time gone

Dont you just hate it when you get to Friday & realize “Flip there’s so much that i still wanted to do this week” 

let me give you a quick breakdown of the past few weeks:

on one Thursday i tried my luck, sent my CV to the worlds biggest online store, Friday they contacted me and set up an interview for the next Monday (all good so far) i went to the interview not really sure what to expect and what i got was a Computer Skills Assessment as well as a English Language Assessment – not the ordinary Interviews i’ve become accustomed to.. i passed both with flying colours!!!

got an email the Wednesday congratulating me & that someone would contact me the next day for another interview for the Friday… This was an intense one on one interview! (Some of these questions I’ve now been using during our search for my replacement)  The interview was awesome though… the Guy didn’t just sit there & ask the questions he made it part of his conversation (a Skill I hope to master in my new Profession) by the end of what seemed like 10 minutes (was actually close to an hour) he said to me “Rey, welcome to the team”

needless to say i spread the word on Facebook & Twitter and eventually put my BIG GIRL PANTIES on and contacted my current BOSS, telling him the wonderful (for me) news that i have found that greener pasture that i’ve been looking for since October 2010.

Monday, we put a post up to find my replacement (seeing as i start this wonderful new phase in my life on the 26th) & i was inundated with CV’s – now if any of you know my BOSS, he’s a fussy bugger and wants things done a certain way and if not his then well heaven have mercy on you 🙂

in any case, tuesday we saw quite a few candidates and some of them completely blew us away & others didnt impress us much. Wednesday we had more candidates come in….

a process i would’ve wanted done & dusted (including hiring someone) by today is now being stretched a bit longer… 2nd interviews are only on monday – which leaves me with 3 days to train the person to take over 😦

i feel like i’m not going to have enough time to train this person in 3 days… Its just NOT ENOUGH TIME!!!

so far in preparation for my replacements arrival i have started on contact lists (accounts, suppliers & courier companies) a “quick learn” manual on the accounting package we use as well as started preparing lists of things she just HAS to know in order to survive this office – breathing being one of the quick fixes – but still i feel that come end of Thursday i would not have had enough time to teach her everything i know….

i can only wish her well and close this door behind me, try new things (whatever my future holds) and always know that i had a great 4 years at this company!

have a stunning weekend Guys & Girls, mine is looking quite busy – gotta love it!

The Empowered Woman – Happy Woman’s Day

The Empowered Woman, she moves through the world

with a sense of confidence and grace.

Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom.

Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt
or hesitation

and the life she leads is of her own creation.

She now understands what it means to live and let live.

How much to ask for herself and how much to give.

She has a strong, yet generous heart

and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart.

Like the mythical Phoenix,

she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence,

unfettered by the things that once that posed such resistance.

Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so clearly.

She hears the wind rustling through the trees;

beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly.

She feels the softness of her hands

and muses at the strength that they possess.

Her needs and desires she has learned to express.

She has tasted the bitter and savored the sweet fruits of life,

overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife.

And the one thing she never understood,

she now knows to be true,

it all begins and ends with you.
