I have always been a busy worker bee. Always taking on more work, more responsibility and working overtime. Achieving things is my addiction. I am lucky enough to have a hard working and supporting spouse that has put up with my need to achieve more.
However, recently I have had to admit to myself that I am getting older and that life is not all about work and achievements. The running around and stress is taking its toll on my body and I can feel it every day.
It is with this that I have decided to step back a little in order to move forward. I have made the conscious decision to scale back on work and focus myself on the things that I enjoy. This is going to be very difficult for a workaholic like myself but I’ll make it my goal and strive for this mental achievement.
I have realised that people are just people and they will come and go with their rude remarks and I will try not to have it affect me as much as I used to. It’s time for me to focus on me and my little family.
