I am completely blown away by how awesome you all are. My sister even remarked at how thorough and detailed the comments were on my last post. I got a cord to hook my iPod up to my car stereo and listen to NPR podcasts all the way home, I renewed my enthusiasm for Zen Habits, and got a few book recommendations that will keep me busy. And lots and lots of practical tips. Thank you.
Plus, Michelle just posted something that totally resonated with me and along with a recent NPR story on how messed up multi-tasking really makes us. I’m exploring a less multi-tasking approach to my work and at home. I will try to focus on one task at a time – instead of having six tabs open in Firefox and five different programs running, I’m paring down a bit at work and at home. I even ran without listening to anything but the pounding of my feet on the pavement and my rhythmic breathing yesterday evening. It was sort of refreshing. (PS: Yes! I ran! I had time to run!)
Thank you for sharing this little journey I make. Thank you for letting me be honest and confess that I’m overwhelmed. Thank you for encouraging me – like when I posted about looking young, I was surprised how many of you came forward with a, “me, too!”. It’s so good to know I’m not alone. So, thank you.
On that note, I think I shall enjoy my long weekend (hurrah!) which begins early (hurrah!) with a birthday dinner for Mike at an amazing restaurant (hurrah!) on my first pay day (hurrah!).
I have a lot of blessings.
Also, I had to share this, which is probably meant more for a Tumblr sort of thing, but let’s be honest, I don’t need another reason to be on the internet.
