Following along with Ali Edwards today in sharing a piece of what is happening currently in my life.
Breathing through the stressful parts of today and remembering who my anger was created by instead of lashing out at someone who does not deserve it.
Forgiving my employees for the things that they do that I will never understand.
Being respectful and mindful of my emotions when I am disciplining said employees.
Trying to give second (third, fourth…) chances to people.
Beginning to pack for our upcoming trip to Colorado.
Working on being more relaxed. All the time, but especially when I get home from work.
Brainstorming projects and products. Creating a blogging calendar so that I can be more consistent for myself.
Remembering that writing here and creating things is supposed to be fun, not something that needs to get done, its something I want to do.
Enjoying the few hours Steve and I have together after work each night since we will both be working the next two weekends.
Patiently waiting until I can see my family back home again.
Reorganizing my desk at work and craft space at home, over and over again.
Reminding myself that a year from now I will think back to this stressful part of my job and know that it has made me a better person and manager. Reminding myself that this is experience needed to get to where I want to go.
Taking more pictures of the every day stuff. We don’t have children (and we aren’t sure that we want them either) so trying/remembering to document the day to day life gets put to the side when things like work and homework have to get done.
Being excited for what the next few months hold. Excited to travel (I love flying), excited to close chapters and start new ones.
Waiting for it to cool off (hopefully this weekend!) so that we can take more walks.
