Happy Sunday! I missed last Sunday Lately due to being out-of-town for a family obligation but I am back on the grind today. This week also happens to be my birthday week. Yikes! But it’s going to be a good week as I also start my new job tomorrow. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately.
Thinking… I feel like this birthday kind of snuck up on me. With our recent move and out-of-town travel, I haven’t had a chance to sit down and figure out what I wanted to do for my birthday. To be honest I haven’t really given it much thought. I feel like these birthdays have a way of sneaking up on you!
Finding…new work clothes. I start my new job tomorrow and I am pretty nervous! But with the right work clothes, my confidence should be boosted. My problem is I am pretty tiny. I can never find work pants that fit properly. I guess I will just have to stick to dresses!
Allowing…myself to breathe a little. The last few weeks have been a bit chaotic but I feel like I handled them with ease. Despite getting sick, having to move one day then fly home by myself the next, I’ve allowed myself the chance to breath and not let the crazy make me crazy. Usually I don’t fly well. I used to get bad anxiety about flying. This time around I kept myself busy. I met some people on each of my flights and had good conversations. I took deep breaths if I ever felt nervous. Overall, I feel like I handled it like a pro!
Insisting…that all I need for my birthday is quality time with loved ones. After losing my grandfather a few weeks ago I have felt that quality time is the most cherished thing in the world. Last weekend at his funeral, I held onto every hug I gave. Life is especially short…savor the quality time with loved ones.
Repeating…confidence is key! I’m starting my new job tomorrow and I’m a tad bit nervous. If I just keep reminding myself that confidence is key, I’ve got this!
