One Word, Two Ways: Priority
When I first started at my new job, my teammates went around the table and shared a goal they had for the summer. Not only was I thrilled to be at my new job, but I was so inspired by this exercise. I was enjoying hearing what people had to say and then it was time for me to answer. I knew there was going to be a lot on my plate this summer. Two very special weddings, two very special bachelorette parties, a very special birthday and a lot of visitors. It was hard not to feel bogged down about all that I had to do. So, I made it my goal for this summer to remember that all these very special things that were happening were just that – special. I have put all my focus this summer on enjoying and celebrating all the good things and not letting myself get overwhelmed by the details. I gotta tell you, it feels good.
Over the past few weeks, I have been prioritizing downtime and health. I still have ample room for improvement but I’m hoping that in creating time for stillness, I will be more present in the way I address the other priories in my life. Forever a work in progress…
