we call that the STRIDE OF PRIDE around these parts
I thought I should pop in and let you know that 2012 is off to an excellent start.
I rang in the new year in Portland, and had an amazing time, as usual. Ugh, I have such a crush on PDX. I’ve also been working less overtime, and have made clear to my boss that I need to prioritize my mental health over my work, which he totally supports. I’ve been seeing friends I’ve missed and learning to be a semi-competent blues lead and sleeping and doing my dishes and meeting nice people and reading and trying to put myself first. Making space in my life for love and laughter and learning new things. I’m hoping that instead of the BURNOUT 2012 that seemed to be looming for me, I can have CRUSHFEST 2012—where I become reinfatuated with people and places and activities and life in general. We’ll see how things go, but for now I’m tending to optimism!
