"Hi, Orion.  I'm back," I said to my friend this morning. "Well, it's about time!  How the hell are you?" Orion asked. "Overwhelmed with the added work of the new job.  I have two full-time jobs now...with only one salary.  I love the work, though."  "Are you keeping balanced, grasshopper?" "It's been difficult getting used to a new routine.  I have to get back to exercising, meditating, and being grateful for all I have."

"We haven't talked in awhile, and now I hear you're talking to someone else," Orion said.  "I just started a conversation with my five year old self," I admitted.  "And...?" Orion said snootily.  "It's not about you, Big O.  I was just empathizing with my young self's pain of being stifled so young and thanking him for keeping the spirit alive so I could realize it in my life now.  It's like giving myself permission to be authentic.  I feel so young again."

"Hey!" I said to Orion. "Day 3 at the new job. I'm excited and not as nervous" "That's great, grasshopper," Orion replied. "Remember your mantra today and be open to all opportunities. It's going to be an enlightening day!"
