Reclaiming my life
Sunday, June 23, 2013
Wow, time has been getting away from me this year. I started a new job in January and have been working some major hours in addition to going to grad school. It seriously kicked my butt and I lost track of everything except work and hitting the gym three times a week (at least I kept that up!).
But everything else had to give. It just became too much. I lost touch with friends, stopped updating Facebook, stopped writing blogs. I didn't do events, plan meals, or cook. No more daily walks with hubby. In fact, I hardly spent any time with him at all.
I wanted the fancy new job with the exciting description and high visibility. I wanted the stepping stone to future leadership potential. And I got it. This is definitely an example for the "be careful what you wish for" journal.
Now it's time to rebalance. My big project is nearly over and the two new ones haven't geared up yet. I'm nearly done with school - July 27, to be exact.
This weekend I vowed I wouldn't work. I left early on Friday, too. I am reclaiming my life, and my life includes Spark and my wonderful friends here! I will figure out a way to keep my work and home lives in balance. I've been stuck since September. It's time to kick it into high gear and take back my life.
I'm sorry I've been gone, SparkFriends! Hope you can forgive me for disappearing. I miss you so much, and I'm thrilled to be back!!
