The wisest decision was to cut back on my extracurricular activities. I have more time for my family and myself after work. Going into next year I plan to cut out a few more things.
@monica: cutting back and saying no to stuff is hard, but totally worth it. downtime and freedom from commitments are what gives us the room to recharge our batteries and be happy. keep saying no.
Great photos! I’m glad to hear not taking it personally is making a difference. So hard.
@mads: thanks! i got a new camera which makes magic photos.
not taking things personally is SO HARD. i’ve got so many opportunities to practice and even though i am still taking some things personally, so much less. i’ve got to keep at this one. i’m pretty sure this is one of my many keys to happiness.
