I usually don't do resolutions. But in the spirit of all the big changes in my life, I decided to do one this year. My resolution is to be mindful of the fact the much of the stress in my life comes from within. In my work there are often stressful situations - saving a language is no easy task. But I can choose how I respond to those situations, and I can choose to internalize less of the stress. So that is what I will be trying to do.
So far, I have been doing pretty well. Things are busy, some might even say stressful. But I am kind of enjoying being back at work for full days now that I am not working on school, able to focus my energies and get a lot done. It is a good feeling. Let's hope this lasts!
