After over two decades, I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I’m an over achiever and a natural born worrier. I like to do it all. I say yes to everything, and I hate to disappoint. Sounds great in theory, except my world occasionally comes crashing down because, let’s face it, no one can maintain that kind of lifestyle.
I understand now that a lot of the stress and anxiety in my life was caused solely by me. I have such a guilty conscience. I need to give myself a break once in a while and unwind. (remember that whole post about decluttering and destressing?)
I wish I could just throw caution to the wind and be a free spirit, but that doesn’t work for me either. It’s all about balance! And I’m happy and proud when I recognize the unbalance and can reel it safely back in. (the alternative is to convince yourself you’re crazy and that’s not a happy place. lol)
Speaking of Happy Places….
Look what arrived at my doorstep today!!!
Ready for this?
6 absolutely perfect chocolate covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries!
Sent by my adorable friend Sarah over at www.gagadiaries.com If you aren’t reading her blog, you should check it out, she’s 20 weeks prego and cute as a button! (I would have said that even if she didn’t send me chocolate for my birthday.)
Sarah—totally not neccessary, but I’m not one to turn down chocolate covered anything! THANK YOU!
I shared one tonight with Ashley and it was pretty amazing.
I went straight for the coconut! Mmmm!!
Mood = Better (instantly!)
Today after work, I made an unplanned pitstop to get my nails done! I’m so proud for having kept them long for four months now and it feels great. Ladies, don’t take your nails forgranted.
This was my FIRST manicure EVER with real long nails!!!
We also had a fun time tonight with Irving’s family trying out some new technology and doing a 3-way video chat!!!!
They were all busy chatting and laughing and I was snapping pictures because I thought it was so cool. HAHA
We used the audio from Skype and the Video from MeBeam.com . So cool!
So all in all, a stressful day, but a perfect night. Right now, I have a date with netflix:
(I hear it’s a downer, but I loved the book).
