oh snap, wild boy.
At work I've been given some really great opportunities to learn and grow including the upcoming opportunity to attend Alt. Due to some schedule conflicts with co-workers, I'll probably end up going alone. I don't know why that makes me nervous. I've never enjoyed doing anything alone really. I love the company of others. I love my work at Uppercase Living. I love the people I work for, and I love the people I work with. There's something special about it. I'd really like to make some meaningful connections in relation to the great things my work is doing, and I guess maybe that makes me nervous. Just because I care so much. Regardless of my worries from a professional perspective, it's a huge opportunity, and I hope to learn a lot.
My babies are getting bigger all the time, and they are now sharing a room. I have really fond memories of sharing a room with my little brother growing up, and I hope they'll be able to create some of the same enjoyable times together. Of course I have lots of ideas and plans to create a nice little space for them and despite my anxious tendency to want everything pulled together at once, I'll probably just work at it one piece at a time. Speaking of one piece at a time, I jotted a little list of resolutions down. It's something I do every year. I'm a firm believer that if you don't write goals down, they're that much less likely to be accomplished.
1. I chose my words carefully. No strict diet or exercise rules. Just an honest charge to be kind to the body I have by becoming selective about what I put in, and how I improve it.
2. Being home with the kids are some of the best times of my life. I want to have fun. I want them to have fun.
3. I want to enjoy cooking for my family. I want to think outside the box. I want to cook healthy meals that taste good.
4. I want to be good to the environment. I want to be good to my wallet. I want to enjoy and appreciate my local surroundings.
5. I want our home to reflect our personality. I want it to be inviting. I want it to feel comfortable.
6. I want to take better pictures.
7. I have never appreciated the beauty of obtaining knowledge more than I do now. I want to learn. I want my knowledge to grow.
8. No excuses.
9. I want to trust that the things I say about myself will teach my daughter (and son) to be proud of her body and mind.
10. Stop trying to manage all tasks on my own. He knows best.
