During therapy I realized how much the word should hung over me. I did not say it out loud, but it was part of every sentence in my head. The only thing I really should, is to be kind to myself.
I knew I had to be intentional about coming back from holiday this time. So I took a large sip of my own advice. And I did not feel overwhelmed!
Guilt is not a thing of the past. No matter how much men lean in, women emancipate, different models of marriage appear, guilt is permanent.
It is only when they truly lean in some tasks that are truly indifferent to be done by men or women that then we will have equal opportunities to spend time doing what we love – whether that includes the kids or not.
As I started giving my 5 year old an allowance, we used her first shopping spree as a lesson on financial concepts, financial choices and the value of money
At ALG, I need to be a money focused CEO. It is all about casting the net wider and deeper. I need to actually make the ask – now I have a plan to get me there.
My goals for UPG this year – I want to be the CEO. That is not new and has many implications, but this time, I have an action plan.
I am committed to intentional living, intentional about my values and what I want my life to be. I am now using goals to live this value-oriented life.
I reach the end of 2018 with great satisfaction and I know what made the difference this year – time. It did not fly, I made it go.
On Xmas Day, I shared my look-through 2018 at A Little Gesture, in a moment of reflection and gratitude.
This time of year is one for reflection and gratitude. And the more I reflect, the more grateful I am.
