I had heard that when you work for yourself that you work harder & longer hours than you ever would on a regular job. I did not really know what that meant until now. I thought that last month being my birthday month that I would work hard & party hard (which does not mean the same thing as it did when I was 20) and I tried to. Now I am just tired. I need to find balance in my life (sounds like a Friday article). I have not had one whole day off since …. well I don’t know remember when. My sister fears that I am going to burn myself out.
So today I plan to not work, exactly. I plan to only things that I find to be fun. Here is my plan:
- Wake up & exercise. Yes, I exercise about 5 times a week for an hour each time and really enjoy it.
- Go to the movies in the afternoon. There is something so delicious about doing this when I know most people are at work.
- Pay it forward. The Monday “Ready to Be Inspired” post included an idea that has inspired me. Also, how can I expect to inspire you if I don’t try an inspiration myself. So, I have made a few labels, found some ribbon and I plan to purchase $20 worth of gifts (such as coins for the laundry mat, a 2 gallon gasoline card, etc) and leave them in a places where I think people will need them. I plan to photographs a few of my leavings and I hope that this will inspire you when you see them.
Today’s photos are one of the light houses I visited in Door County. Symbolizing that today I need something or someone to show me the way. … and today I will Enjoy.
