Those changes I was referring too? Not a new job. (I actually like mine, despite being swamped.) Not a new boy, yet.
It's my look that needed a little update. The haircut may not be a drastic change, but the "face lift" is a little more noticeable, and an improvement, I think. Hopefully you all will agree*.
Some of these changes have been a long time coming. Some have not. But all got a little kick in the pants last weekend.
I was standing on the top of the mountain, wondering to myself how I let things get this far. What had possibly possessed me to wait until February to make it up for my first day of the season. Why hadn't I been before.
There are very few things that make me feel as serene as standing on top of a mountain with boards on my feet and a bit of white stuff below them.
Right then and there inspiration hit me. I had great intentions with my resolutions, but crazy work deadlines and cold, snowy weather kept me from addressing many of them. No more.
This week, every day, I took some time for myself. Some time to get a haircut. Some time to do things I love to do.
Ski. Watch a little football game with great friends. Walk the dog. Enjoy the sunshine. Be a little creative. And a wonderful long visit with my good friends and their new baby.
Hopefully, the change in attitude will remain, even after the "new" look fades to old.
* Just know, I'm still tweaking a little. Working on links, and getting the "of the week" stuff up and running.
