Happiness Project Day 63: Shifting my Perspective
Seriously, I don't know why. I guess I figure I need to strike while the iron's hot, while I have the energy, the focus, and the motivation.
I'm sure I don't need to tell anyone why this is a really bad way to operate.
Now I work for myself, and although still not great at taking breaks; I am trying. Today I got so overwhelmed sorting through last year's finances in preparation for taxes (yes, I'm one of those last minute tax people), that I just wanted to go to bed. And I almost did. But a little voice in my head said just get outside.
Far be it from me to argue with a voice in my head, so outside I went. Do you know it's a whole other world out there? Flowers were blooming, birds were singing, and nobody was concerned about spreadsheets.
My perspective shifted, and I went back to work refreshed and happy in the knowledge that I did something good for myself.
I just may be a break-taker after all.
