I mentioned a couple of posts back that my two words are “compassionate” and “give back”.  When I decided on those words, I was wondering if at least one word should be more selfish.  I am a pretty unselfish person, but this sometimes makes me VERY tired.

This weeks yoga class was so chock full of good stuff, I have something else to share with you.  The main theme of the class was this:

“If you are not in balance, giving can feel like sacrifice”

Ah!  Yes! This is why even though I do everything, that my boss and my entire team asks me to do all day long, I often feel like crap.  I really do like giving, and giving with a smile instead of a whine or a growl is definitely a more pleasant experience for everyone.

So what did I DO with these words of wisdom this week?

  1. I took an hour out of my workday yesterday to attend a Business Women’s Network meeting at my office It was not particularly insightful, but that was not the point.  I walked away from my desk for an hour in the middle of the day.  This pretty much never happens.
  2. I left work 30 minutes earlier than normal today and squeezed in a weekday run.  That has not happened in….a very long time.
