Hellooo, Dear Bloggites! 🙂 Sorry I have been out of touch, however, I have been very busy learning the balance.
I started with a new company in March. I changed jobs and stepped out into an exciting new adventure. I love my job…high stress, bring it on; encouraging people to become the best, hells yeah; helping others, always down with that! My job is Amazing and I am so glad I am in it.
One of the quick things I learned once I started this adventure is having to learn the balance. I threw myself into this new adventure, and, like all previous adventures, it engulfed my UberGoofy World of P!
I know, it is my choice, and a choice I love making. However, I started hearing grumbling from my friends and family…”you work too much”…”you never have time anymore”…”when do you stop working”…on and on. So I had to reassess what I do in my world and stop and see what they were moaning and groaning about…LOL
In my reassessment, I realized I had stop doing all other activities when I first started my job, I always strive to be the best at all I do, and loving my job only fueled the fire to be the best.
Well, I had to learn the balance. The beautiful dance of balance…fabulous! One issue I found, because I was so busy, I had nothing going on except work. So finding that balance was a mote point, at least to me…
I stepped back and started putting the things I had put off since joining the new company BACK into my life, and WOW, it was a big time reassessment!
Two things I know about myself: 1. Idle time is my enemy (I get into WAY TOO much trouble when I have it) and 2. I am a workaholic (is there a WA out there? Workaholics Anonymous…I bet they work in the meetings…).
Now, I think I have found that balance. I still do not have time for a relationship, but I am starting to allow time for dating; I am getting back into the beautiful world of ballroom dancing, something I have not done consistently in years (still a work in progress on this one); I do not log into work immediately after getting home and have limited myself to only four days of logging into the system instead of seven (hellooo, workaholic…don’t judge me); I make it a point to leave the office before the sun goes down most days instead of when it is rising again (where is that WA meeting?); and I have delved myself back into Toastmasters, something I love doing instead of cancelling appearances at meetings like I was doing.
I think I am getting better at learning the balance, and one thing I know for sure, I do love to learn! So, for now, Dear Bloggites, I shall sign off, and with this new Learning the Balance thing going on, will make it a point (on those days I am not logged into work-WA anyone?) to check back in with you and see how your UberGoofy World is treating you! 🙂
