This Week You Guys

I have been letting things get me worked up that are none of my beeswax and also things I can do nothing about. Other people make choices I think are bad. I cannot change their choices. I CAN change how I react to them. Ummm, this week that has been harder. I'm working on it.

I'm also working on a few other things to get myself in a better place.

Among other things, I'm taking my schedule more into my own hands. I have two part time jobs which sounds awesome until you realize that two part time jobs usually mean working 6 days a week and occasionally seven (but often for shorter bits). I had a talk with my boss at the job that has flexibility and am working on shaping that schedule for the better. I also am going to take responsibility to build in me time. The bonus of my part time jobs is that I can sort of take time off whenever I want. But I have not been doing this and sometimes getting only 2 or 3 whole days off in a month. SO OF COURSE I AM FEELING WORN OUT!!! In 2013 I am going to take time off in one day me times hopefully every month and definitely every other month, and I am not going to let myself feel bad about it.  Just because I can work everyday does not mean that is a good idea for my well being, and I am fortunate enough to have a boss that appreciates that my well being is good for my working.
