I didn't feel on top of work and I was (and still am), thinking and worrying too much about what needs to be done, what I should be doing, etc. etc.
The new year is suppose to be a fresh start, but when you've got your own business and you've overseeing every aspect of everything that it takes to properly run it, it's hard to just flip a switch and say you're in "work mode" or "personal mode". Often times, it blurs together and that's where I often run into trouble.
New Years resolutions don't work. I just told a friend on Facebook that "I'm still working on New Year's Resolutions from 25 years ago!" and, in a way, it's kind of true. You accomplish great things in life and you falter, crash and burn from time to time and learning to accept both is a challenge for many people.
What has helped is looking back at last year and taking pride in all the wonderful events and experiences that took place and, for me, NOT to compare and tell myself "you need to be better and do more", but instead say, "WOW, that was awesome! Now look forward to some new things and some old things that you love and just do your best!"
At times, it just takes a closer look at what you're doing: ignoring the distractions that cloud and strain your judgements and, instead, capturing the essence of a simple moment while rediscovering the love of nature and all that it has to offer.
