Well, well, well…. another year has flown by and, up until this last week, I felt pretty disappointed in myself because I didn’t – couldn’t – keep up with everything I wanted to do and get accomplished. So I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting about this last year and why and how I’ve gotten to this spot. It’s been good to clear my mind a bit. So the bottom line is that I’m lowering my expectations on myself and being more assertive about what’s best for me. Work will not get 150% out of me anymore. They’re going to have to live with me being truly part-time or I’m walking. I don’t have to make crafty things for every person I know, nor do I have to take a picture of everything I see.
Life can be pretty weird; it’s hard enough just trying to keep my head up and stay afloat. For me, this will be a year (I hope!) with more travelling and making the time for enjoying family, friends and life – and remembering I’m doing the best I can.
So with that, a very happy, balanced New Year!
Inspired and idea swiped from Cauchy’s blog, here’s a very quick look at the year 2010 in photos.
