Sorry it’s taken so long for me to get back on the blog “train.” I’ve been overwhelmed with trying to catch up with everything I missed (or purposely put aside) while I was gone and it has been a job, lemme tell you! Anyway, I had a fabulous time in New York. Got to reconnect with old friends and make a lot of new ones, wake up wanting to got to work each morning, and just have some good ‘ol fun. :) There was lots of laughter, smiles, and some occasional tears shed as well — it was wonderful few weeks. A delightful getaway from here — not that I don’t love it here, but there are just times when you need to get a way and breathe. Get a way from people you’re around all the time and step outside of your comfort zone too! It was great (just in case you haven’t caught on yet ;) ).
Anyway, I’m back in action and still attempting to get settled into my old routine, but I’m getting there. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment, but I’ll make it! One thing that I really grasped while I was up there was the importance of loving what you do everyday. You see, I realize a lot of people don’t have the opportunity to choose what they do for a living, but these last few weeks I had that luxury and it was awesome. Like I said earlier, I woke up each morning wanting to go to work. I loved what i did so it didn’t even feel like a job to me. I want to be able to have that luxury the rest of my life. I think it is so important when it comes to lowering stress levels and simply keeping yourself from burning out. Hopefully through all this college *junk* ;), I’ll be able to one day achieve that luxury for life. Until then, I’m choosing to be content at my regular job, that I don’t particularly look forward to every morning, and working my butt off in college! *almost through* :D
Hope you all are having a wonderful day, and I hope that (if you aren’t already) someday you get the opportunity to love what you do.
Confucius had it right when he said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Have a great rest of the night friends, and tell me what you’ve been up to these last few weeks?!
