Thursday Two Questions #57- My New Fling

My New Fling
A job to me is like a relationship. I spent a lot of time with it and I thought about it often, even on my drives to it, and from it. My fling is on my mind quite often. My first impression of my new fling is mostly positive. Of course, it's only been a week. But in terms of quality, I have to say my new fling is the best in quality compared to my past flings in corporate.

This conclusion brings me to the saying an x-bf said to me once: "you will meet much better people as you move on with your life. The quality, the match, the compatibility..." I didn't believe it, but I  have never forgotten the saying either. And as I lived the years of my life , I saw how right x-bf was. Although, I can only apply this methodology to my work life, because my love life has been the same for ages, and even ages before.

So somewhere in the ingredients we have changed over time, because we obviously have to had learned somethings going through the years. Just like certain wine becomes much more tasty, and certain humidor becomes more valuable with time. These items in some ways have also gone through refinement with alternate ingredients. They are better now then they were in the past, because the manufacturers have made improvements.
In sum, is it us that have changed for the better, and therefore we see people in different perspectives? Or is it because we do meet better people because we can be better judges?  

My new fling is just that, better, more compatible, and more rewarding.

  1. 1. Yes the quality of people have been much better because as I've aged I've become a better judge of character.

    2. I have to admit that though I am getting better with change, there are times I do not adapt quite easily.

    Congrats! on your new fling and hope it becomes better and more enjoyable each day.

  2. congratulations to you, Amanda, so happy for you. it's not easy to go back to corporate world after a long absence due to momhood, but you are sailing so smoothly and happily.

    1) for the most part, yes.
    2) i move on very easily, i may cry a bucket of tears, i may sound like the heaven gonna fall when i cry and the earth shatters, but after that, move on i go so quickly! i think it's my crying that helps, coz i pour it all out, then, I am done.

  3. The quality of people I have met has definitely improved, but I am not sure if that is because I have too or because I have moved back home...

    Changes are difficult, especially if you have a family and you have to involve them in your changes, like when I had to uproot my four children and bring them to Michigan. I would never say they were easy, but with God's help we make the necessary changes to our lives to improve that of our loved ones.

    I am so happy for you in having found your niche. I hope the bloom never fades from the rose.

  4. I don't think the quality has necessarily gotten better. I just think that I'm a better judge of character so I only mix in certain circles.

    Also, your life tend to determine who you meet. I'm active at church, so most of my friends are Christians.

    I used to be good with change. NOw I'm getting older, I find I'm not so good.

    I hope you don't mind me entering my new (migrated from blogger) site above. I'm crazily trying to sort it out, so haven't had time to create a TTQ. I hope that others may visit and perhaps leave me a comment. I'm having a hard time and don't know if the comment box works. Thanks.

  5. 1) You know in this respect of the conversation, the quality people are slowly diminishing from my life right now. I just don't have time to socialize anymore, so it's not a good thing.

    2) I'm good with adapting to changes, and got on "fairy" well with it..

  6. 1) I don't think the quality of people has gotten better..rather that I'm getting more selective with the type of people I mix with.

    2) I think I am quite good with adapting to changes..and I try to move on easily..but sometimes It does take longer then I wish.

  7. I do not move on easy..although I wish I did with some things!

  8. I want a fling too. I've been searching.

    1. In real life yes.
    Online it's a mixture.

    2. I'm used to change so my heart doesn't really get comfortable with anything. I have the feeling that soon it will be taken away.

    So I do adapt to change well but not willingly.

  9. I'm glad to hear you are enjoying your new job Amanda.

    I think the quality has improved or maybe I am just more selective about who I let into my circle of acquaintances.

    I think I do adapt well to change. I have moved and changed jobs with ease through the years. Maybe it is because I like new experiences.

    Sorry I missed this week. I was tied up with volunteer work and didn't have time to do posts for a couple of days.

  10. Congratulation on your new job, and I hope it is a permanent one for you!

    I also agree with most of your commenters too that I've become too selective to hang out with just anyone..
