Last week actually flew by. I find it a little crazy how some weeks can drag and others move so quick I feel like I didn’t accomplish as much. But last week not only flew by, I accomplished many things I had been putting off.
I finished Day Job to Dream Job, finally. Although it didn’t really give me any definite course of action, it made me think.
I posted in MyWeeklyMenu Facebook page. Simple posts, thus I am not sharing them, but it’s a start. I also gave my tech designer and husband concrete ideas on how I want the site to work. That’s more accomplished on this dream since it was my entrepreneur project during my study abroad course 2 years ago!
I walked. I have been going to Physical Therapy now for about 5 months. I’m undecided if it’s helped, but I am able to walk. I walked my 2.5 mile route both Thursday and Sunday. This week I want to hit 3 times. Focused on completing a half marathon before the end of the year.
I engaged with my staff. I love my staff. But lately I haven’t taken the time to listen and coach them. Last week I kept to our touchbases and actually brought some topics to the table. It feels good to make others a priority.
I blogged. I cleaned out the mudroom. I helped build a deck. I organized our closet. I researched what to do with old vinyl records. I made time to talk to my daughter who was having a hard time. I took my husband to lunch for Father’s Day because he’s been an awesome Dad to my two kids. I took a nap while watching Sunday news shows. I went to yoga – 3 times. I went to a baseball game to spend time with my sorority sisters. Wow! I did accomplish a lot!
So at 50, or almost 51 at this point, I’m still doing. I’m still living. I’m still finding out who I am. That’s what I am coming to find; no matter the age, as humans we are still exploring, always learning and always changing. Just because I have hit a certain age, doesn’t mean I have stopped evolving. That I have stopped growing. In many ways I still feel like that scared school girl, unsure of so many things. But that school girl was always headstrong and focused on achieving things: a spelling bee, a part in a play, a dance solo, a high grade. I’m still that over achiever, but with a half century of experience in life, I now only set out to achieve what matters to me. What makes me warm and fuzzy on the inside. So today I am going to keep this flow of energy and accomplishments of the last week moving! Maybe next week I will have changed the world! One can dream!
