hello to a new focus...
hello to the things I aspire & envision...
and most importantly...
hello to saying NO
and not feeling guilty!
Welcome a new year! I am so excited for 2017 to arrive and to have made the concious decision before it arrived to make changes for a better year with new beginnings!
The past couple years have been very tough to find that work life balance and my passion for writing & creating have been put on the back burner. Like many, focusing on making a living must take the priority; but I realized that without making priorities, saying no when needed, not allowing others to take advantage and not taking on more than what is needed was the problem in not achieving the balance!
Before the new year arrived, I made my list of what needed to change and the number one thing that was most important...was saying no and to stop letting people take advantage.
I have been so focused on trying to please everyone, always trying to accomodate, never saying no...even when it meant I would be miserable, work hours on end and bottom line there was not enough compensation or appreciation to justify any of it!
So, I start 2017 with the commitment to myself that there must and HAS to be a work life balance! Saying "NO" is a required part of life and no one should feel guilty when it is needed to be said. And, last but not least...knowing your self worth, believing in yourself and never allowing others to push you into work, activities, anything you don't want to do, etc. is the key to the balance of finding your happiness!
Cheers to a new year of beginnings!
I so look forward to this amazing new start...
