Sitting here drinking my coffee feeling really grateful. I had a nice, relaxing vacation. SO much better than the last one. Things are going really well with Cary and I in the new place. I am getting along with my family, enjoying my new space, spending time doing what I want this week. I spent many days at the beach which is summer to me.
It was just relaxed.
I needed this before starting off the new school year and going back to my clinical job next week. Even though I go back there tuesday it will be one more short week. Labor Day weekend will be nice and long and then I will be back to 5-day work weeks. Back to reality. But reality doesn't have to be stressful. I was thinking yesterday. I look at the negative and worry entirely too much. I don't want to go through life being the person who is viewed as, "The girl whose glass is always half empty."
I want to be known as, "The girl whose glass is always half full or full!"
This past year I have been really trying to live up to my "one little word" BALANCE. Sometimes I do ok. Many times I do not. I noticed on Ali's blog she is refocusing on her word. I think I need to do this too. I want to carry this "vacation" feeling with me during my regular day-to-day.
How do you all try to do this in your lives?
