Yesterday, I decided to throw in something different than my usual routine. I went for a run. It was beautiful outside, and the perfect temperature. It felt great for about 10 minutes and then my blasted knees started to hurt again...GRRRRR! I hate that my body feels awesome when I run, but my knees start to object. So unfortunately I had to walk the rest of the way. I've never had knee issues before so it really stinks! But as I was walking I had time to think without interruption! This is something I need to make a habit of doing, oh and getting a bike is on my wish list now:)
I was thinking about what I have accomplished thus far in my life, and also what I want to accomplish in the future. I can quite honestly say that the things I said I would be doing 10 years from now about 10 years ago, have happened, minus the bachelor degree, and the bustling career:). This makes me very optimistic for the future. I do, however, have an Associates degree, and I am a full time Mother, so I figure that's halfway there, right? Because we all know mothering is bustling. I may not get paid for it, but I work my A%# off doing it!
I know I do a lot of "venting" about being a mother, but I LOVE IT! I am the boss, which is really the only way for me. I don't like being bossed, so so far motherhood is the perfect career. I have some pretty irritating employees, but I continue to give them a description of their jobs and they do it with constant bickering, but the point is they DO IT! It's not all bad, though. They do some really great work, and they are the reason this company flourishes, so I don't mind giving credit where credit is due. They sometimes loathe their employer, but I know they appreciate boundries, otherwise they would have quit already. My Co-President is perfect. He keeps things in balance so when I lose my head, he always has a back-up. And I lose my head A LOT so we make a great team. Our company is growing so we plan on adding another employee sometime in the near future. We are still accepting applications, which is my favorite part, so there's no hurry at this point. I am getting tired of the constant training, though. They keep me up half the night with all their "questions." I sometimes wish they would be a little more self-reliant, but as a good employer I see to all their needs, no matter what they are. I know when the training is finished they will become amazing CEO's. That is the whole reason why I started this company at such a young age. I planned on early retirement.
Yes I am happy. And I am still exercising , so I shouldn't be so concerned. I just desire a little change up now and again. And I think walking and thinking early in the morning is a good combination. I think I'll make it a habit, until I get my bike:) Then I'll ride and think, which sounds wonderful.
I've also been dabbling with the idea of writing a book. I really enjoy writing, always have. It's a hobby I've let slide, but now I want to get back to it, and see what my imagination can come up with. Just that very idea is thrilling and exciting. We shall see. Until next time...
