it doesn’t have to be work to be work
Warning! I haven’t figured out how to make time to post a blog from my iPad and I was traveling for the last 2 weeks. And I have so much to write about so I will be posting a bunch of posts in a row.
But before I tell you what I was doing, I want to thank everyone who filled in my survey regarding my strengths. Someone mentioned that I should not be asking for my strengths without asking for my weaknesses-maybe I will do a survey for that in the future. <starts procrastinating>
Overall the points that people said were actually all pretty similar. That’s interesting as I believe some people that responded were family, some were coworkers and some were friends. And while I should really be focusing on the positive, I believe it might be human nature to focus on the not positive.
Someone thought that one of my strengths is that I am somewhat insecure. While I can understand why they would think that, since I just asked them to say nice things about me, I cannot really understand how that is a strength. So when I asked Mom if she was the one to say that-she said she had not done the survey. So, yeah, who’s the procrastinator now, Monica?
Anyway, really, thank you for responding. Even you, the person who said I was insecure. I’m totally over it. Really. I bet you can’t wait to see my weaknesses survey….
So back to what I’ve been doing!
First I went to Tofino for a mini break. “A mini break from what?” you are probably asking. And you would be right. I stayed in a B&B on Chesterman Beach and it was quite lovely. It dawned on me when I sat down to read my book by the fire that this was all quite luxurious. I was taking a break from taking a break. Who do I think I am?
Then Mom and the sisters came out to the island and we went for another luxurious weekend to celebrate Mom’s birthday at a spa. Yes, another break from my break.
Then Mom and I headed to Newport for a visit with Auntie Sheila and Sydney and also attended her bridal shower. One more mini vacation!
I finally returned home yesterday and drank mucho wine with Tom.
This morning I woke up with so much to do and catch up. Work, work, work.
