It's time for the first 'Meet Free Monday' of 2014. There's no denying that the weekend is over and although I don't mind a new week - I do feel that this year is already going too fast. I'm still trying to slowly ease into a new routine and continued work on my 'Summer Purge'. I have to juggle it between life and work. It's taking so much longer than I expected. My parents moved late last year and all the 'memories' I had in storage in our childhood home had to be packed up and shipped out... to my office. It hasn't been an easy task to look through memories, toys and odd things which I seem to have kept from the age of four. Anyway, I'm getting there - slowly, but surely. I hope you will enjoy today's post - it really helps me to gather my thoughts with a new week ahead. The posts also help me to share more personal thoughts which can be often be difficult.
This Working Week:
This week I aim to continue working on a new and improved routine. I'm hoping to finish the blogs of two lovely ladies, plan the next batch of workshops and continue to brainstorm ideas for 2014. There are a few emails I must get down to writing - in fact I should go and do them right now.
Things I'm excited about this week:
I'm really looking forward to finishing my office project and working in a tidy, organised environment. At the moment it's so lovely to be at home, cook dinner and just get back to a slightly less hectic lifestyle. The idea of it excites me - you can laugh if you like.
What will challenge me this week?
I don't want to go on and on about it, but the organising and tidying is a challenge. I do enjoy it, but I just want to complete it.
On the personal front I need to focus on continuing to live out my proposed life changes. I'm battling with the 'not the comparing one'. From a health point of view I got back to running last week and I'm really focusing on eating at the right times of the day. I have also put personal projects on hold - like writing in my new Typo planner (it's similar to a Filofax) and any postal replies. These will be my reward once I finish the organising.
The week at a glance:
I hope it will be a calm work week. I'm holding back slightly on the work front to get my head straight before I take on too much. Last year really taught me to take it a bit slower. It should be a positive week with just enough work to challenge me rather than cause excessive stress.
What do you have planned this week?
