Thank you soooooo much to everyone who has stuck around during my little quiet spell!! I sincerely appreciate your patience while I wrapped up the very last of my grad school classes. I knew this last one would be a doozie… and it certainly didn’t let me down.
Six and a half weeks of heading straight for the computer every night when I got home from work and staying there until the assignments were due at midnight. Every night. And all day Saturday and Sunday. Those of you who do your entire degree program online, I’ve got to hand it to you, online classes are no joke.
After the final, Surfer Hubby and I headed to Pennsylvania for the very last of the wedding festivities, hosted by my parents. “The Farm”, as I have lovingly begun to refer to it, is my sanctuary; my happy place. It is where I go to relax and recharge. Its my little piece of heaven on earth.
Last week I had every intention of jumping back on the bandwagon and throwing myself full force into this little dream-turned-business adventure of mine. And yes, adventure, not venture. But… I must confess… I took a little break…
You see, I haven’t had free time in… I can’t even tell you how long. I don’t even know what to do with free time. I’ve been working on this degree a class or two at a time for the last 4 and a half years. Before that I was working three jobs at once. Before that I was event planner extraordinaire working crazy hours. And before that… was undergrad at Penn State where I changed majors half-way and did an entirely new degree program in three semesters so I could still study architecture in Rome with all my friends… even if it was just for fun.
I decided not to just throw myself into every to-do list that has been on hold for the last couple years, just waiting for that day, somewhere in the future, when I finally finished school. I decided not to overwhelm myself with trying to do everything all at once. Because that is sooooo me. I think I’m super woman and can take on the world single-handedly. And I want to learn to slow down and enjoy the process, the journey, rather than trying to do it all.
So I took a break. And I took a few breaths. And I formulated a better game plan. A bigger picture plan. And now I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work. Life is what you make of it. How you spend your time is how you spend your life. And I intend to find a way to spend it doing the things I love.
Thanks again for sticking around. I promise – the best is yet to come!
