#AhaOfToday When I am listening and don’t enjoy what I’m hearing, I’m used to moving towards expressing myself. That leads to having 2 people expressing… which doesn’t really work. There’s another way: that I move into self-care.
#AhaOfToday Sharing with a couple of trusted colleagues about the difficulties that I’m having at work is relieving. More than that, there are gold nuggets in the rant (little projects or tasks that make sense for my professional goals of the year).
#AhaOfToday I can only do so many things in a day. THis becomes even more obvious when I’m waking up too early. The key is to prioritize the ones that are the most important for me at that moment.

#AhaOfToday Sometimes I choose to drop the ball for a commitment(following what is best for me). Sometimes I need to show up for a commitment(following what’s best for the other). Ideally, I’ll think of a choice that allows me to do both at the same time.
#AhaOfToday sometimes, I just need to take a day off from work to learn again how it is to relax and kick back.
