At the end of 2012 I decided that 2013 would be my year of relaxing. I knew that it was going to be a busy, busy year- conferences, vacations, graduating, job searching, and landing that first job.
But I have a confession- I failed.
I didn’t do a very good job at relaxing during what has been the most stressful time of my life. Yes, I know it’s just September and I still have a full 3 months left of the year to go but I’m not going to wait to admit my fault when my one word has failed.
My year didn’t start off well with relaxing A few days in my car was totaled. I am still searching for my first position post-grad and have done anything but relax during this process. My timeline I had for myself might have been unrealistic but my one word for 2013 stopped pretty early on in the year.
“It’s a good idea always to do something relaxing prior to making an important decision in your life.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage
My accountability to myself has lacked. I can admit that now. Getting back on relaxing in my own world and taking time to enjoy this time in my life is back to #1 for me.
Getting back on my One Word pledge and it starts now, with the first day of fall.
