Still feeling great 3 weeks after my big Birthday. I really took the time to figure out what I want for myself, how I can improve, and things to let fall away. A book lent to me by a friend (Younger Next Year) helped immensely ~ turns out I want to live a long, healthy, happy life. I set out to change the things I could and say good-bye to the things I can't. So far it is working really well.
I have been at my job for nearly 21 years, and did not really want to go looking for another job...but was bored to tears with what I have been doing. I decided to carve out a new job description for myself (which the bosses went for) and for the last 2 weeks it has been so much better. I have a new found confidence that I always wanted, but did not know how to unleash. Well...look out World...I figured it out!!
The bottom line...a better mental outlook makes you feel good.
Still walking about an hour a day during lunch at work with my dogs, and now that the sun is out later I will be able to start my jogging routine in the evenings. The sunshine doesn't hurt a bit either. Sunshine = Happiness.
