This official work year has been off to a GREAT start. I thought maybe taking a vacation right after the holidays would mean too much time away from work, and it would be hard to catch up. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I was talking with some friends yesterday saying how during the holidays I turn into brain mush. A bump on my couch. Going to Mexico right after the holiday allowed me to truly relax, rejuvenate, and begin the year with a clear mind, and so far this week I’ve been on fire!
1. It feels great to be back into my normal productivity space. In fact, I’ve taken on a couple of new projects that have taken my (already extreme) productivity to the next level. I truly thrive when I’m challenged. I bite off seemingly more than I can chew, and then somehow manage to pull it all off. So far, so good on this front, although I’m sure there will be many days ahead of exhaustion, and frustration. It comes with the territory. I’ve been working to this kind of extreme for so long, that I know the payoff will be worth the effort in the end.
2. I got into a bit of a Pinterest tiff this week with some people leaving nasty comments about me, and questioning my integrity. (Yes, I know Pinterest tiff seems ludicrous but it happens) I was very upset by the whole situation but tried to remain calm and professional. The Great part is that not only did a blog reader alert me to the situation and come to my defense, but so did a bunch of my blogging friends AND strangers who were able to see through the petty name callers. I TRULY felt the love. I hate confrontation and try to avoid it at all costs, but I have to say it felt Great to come out on top of this one, and even better to know that I have a solid support system. THANK YOU to everyone who stood up for me.
3. Holy heat wave! The transition back from Puerto Vallarta has been easy thanks to an unseasonable heat wave in SoCal. The sun and warm breezes always help to keep this summer loving gal in a good head space.
Lots of exciting stuff to come in Betsylife this year my friends. Beginning next week I’ll have some VERY exciting news to share! I’m jumping out of my skin with anticipation already. Thanks for sticking with me all these years. I hope 2014 will be our best year yet!
