Happy New Year!

I love New Years. Not because I like to party like a rock star but because it’s a chance to reflect back on the last 364 days and see if I'm pointed in the right direction. Like most self-employed people with several business to attend to at once - the last thing on my to-do list is “take care of me”.

Well, I pledge to myself (and now that it’s on the internet - perhaps I’ll stick to it) that 2009 will be the year of Sarah.

What does this look like?
-
 I will strive for excellence, not perfection.

- I will be grace under pressure.

- I will pick my battles and let the rest slide off my back like water on a duck.

- I will turn off my computer at 6pm and not check my e-mail until morning.

- Most importantly ... I will be kinder to myself.

2009 is going to be awesome!!

I'm going to test you from time to time in 2009 with e-mails after 6pm, I better not get a response! Although I might then think we're no longer friends and I'll ask you why you ignored my e-mails.
