the last day

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Well, tomorrow is my last day at my current job. I tried the corporate life for two years but I think once you've worked for yourself it's difficult to work for someone else. I'll be going back to work with my husband doing IT work on a contract basis. I'll probably be working 12-15 hours per week. This means I'll have a lot more time for all sorts of things. I've decided that a big change like this is the perfect time to make some other changes. I've made a conscious decision to change my philosophy on life and make changes in how I live to institute this philosophy. I call it the "love" plan. Here is the manifesto:

  • I will love myself - to show this love I will commit to eating healthier and moving more

  • I will love my home - to show this love I will make my home the best it can be inside and out

  • I will love my family - to show this love I will be more patient, thoughtful, and kind

  • I will love my job - to show this I will not complain or procrastinate

  • I will love my community - to show this love I will donate time to a cause

I hope to make many positive changes in my life but I will not beat myself up if I cannot meet these high standards. They are simply something for me to strive for.

I'll be posting lots on what I'm doing specifically to meet the above goals especially some great projects I have planned for loving my home. I've already started with the project I posted about a few days ago.

Whew, that was deep, wasn't it. lol Don't worry, I'm not going to get all preachy or anything, I just want to be happier and not have so much anger and stress in my life.

Anyway, I've been hooking away the last couple of nights on these:
