I am fortunate enough to be able to live by this quote. I was not happy in my career, so I just recently put in my notice to find something else. My husband and I will be able to live comfortably with just his income, but we won’t be able to buy every shiny thing we see.
So I am officially free. I am still looking for a something I will enjoy career wise, but in the meantime I will be working on nothing but my guilty pleasures. I have a stack of books, craft projects, designing idea, recipes, and so much more….thanks to pinterest.
So I will be sprucing up my resume, social networks, and just enjoying life. I really believe that even though I am scared of what might come, I’m also really excited.
How true is this quote! I’ve have made so many plans to improve my life. I always start with a list or maybe even a spreadsheet and at times it has spiraled out of control into a 5 year plan with calendar entries. I also say to myself, “Awesome Penny, you really going to do it this time. It’s totally going to work!”
I daydream about myself looking back a year from now and being glad that I came up with this fantastic plan. That’s because I’m extremely happy, because of my well executed plan.
Unfortunately that hasn’t happened yet.
So obviously planning isn’t my problem. I could spend hours and even days on planning. It boils down to execution. Let me just give you the definition of execution.
It shouldn’t surprise you that it has two meanings. It can be the beautiful realization of your plans or the death of them. That’s how its been for me at least. I’m not saying I haven’t reached goals. It’s just that I haven’t reached as many as I would have liked.
So i’m starting this blog not only to improve myself by executing some of my plans, but as a way to hold myself accountable. Lets be real for a second, everyone wants to save face and if it’s out there for whoever to read maybe it’ll make me more proactive. I am also hoping to get a couple of laughs at my own mistakes along the way.
Here’s the goal. I’m going to do at least one thing to improve myself weekly. It can be something simple enough as meditating
I really don’t look like this when I meditate, but it was too good of a pic to pass up.
or as complicated as keeping my house cleaned and organized.
Which is challenging because my kids make me crazy.
I know there will be some problems along the way, but I’m hoping that this time it’s going to work.
