Time for Change

I have been thinking about all the things I want to do while I am off for most of the next couple of weeks. I realized that I feel like a kid in a candy shop! For almost two full years my life has been dictated by what I have to get done. It has been one thing after another ever since I got so involved politically two years ago. The first year I also organized a formal wedding at Van Dusen gardens for my friends daughter in less than three months then went from that to helping organize the largest fund raiser of our riding for the year!
Who did I think I was - Super woman?
Between my volunteer work, my responsibilities for my elderly aunt, my jobs (yes I do several different things) and my dog there is so little time. As well there has been so much stress. So many tears. So many ups and downs. I am so tired of it all.
More than anything else I want to do for the next two weeks I want to think about my life and where I want to be this time next year. Certainly not this tired and burned out. So I must find ways to change my life and get more time for me and for rest.
Laugh more. Spend time in idle chatter with a friend without looking at my watch. Return my friends phone calls. Spend more time walking and playing with my dog. TAKE MORE PICTURES!
I want to remember every day to stop and smell the roses . . .

or even the wild snap dragons in the canyon. (aren't they sweet)

  1. I hope you have a wonderful two weeks' rest! I think that's great that you're going to make some changes so that you can take better care of YOU. My whole life turned around when I decided to do the exact same thing for myself two years ago. Good for you!!! :)
