I know I have discussed similar subjects in my blogs but this really hit home for me the other day. Have I really done everything I wanted to and finally taken the risks that I had only dreamed about when I was younger? I can finally say I have and I wish this for everyone.
It took me a long time to get to where I am today and in a place where I finally stepped out of the box and took a chance. Sure there are times when you are really challenged but for the most part it is fantastic. I am working from home with the cat sleeping peacefully in front of my computer as I am typing. I hear the music from my soon to be husband playing on the back porch as he is sitting out on the deck on this beautiful day. At this moment this is heaven for me and would be “number 1” on my bucket list if I had one. How can I work you wonder? When you are in an environment that matches your personality and way of life it is easy. Everyone has their own personal style and an atmosphere that motivates them.
Some of us are late bloomers and we finally make decisions that we could have made sooner but maybe it just was not the right time. I implore you to take a good look at what you are doing now and how stressed you may be at this moment wondering how you balance everything to make everyone happy. Well what about you? You deserve the same happiness and having a job you love and family and friends that you can spend quality time with are really the best mix.
It is true the world is at your feet all you have to do is jump in with both feet firmly planted in your new life. Think about what you really want out of life over the weekend and then maybe you will not need that bucket list because you will achieve the right balance between work and home.
Comments Welcome!! Tell me if you have a “Bucket List.”
