There are a few things this last month has taught and reminded me: 1) Love yourself and the ones around you, tell them every day! 2) Life is too short for “the bullshit”. 3) Everyone is human, everyone makes mistakes. 4) Never take anything for granted (NEVER) 5) I am the luckiest person to have such an amazing team and work family.
I am a new mother, and I absolutely love it. But what I have learned is that it’s easy to get caught up in the BS, the stress, the anxiety, and the worrying. All of us work so hard to complete the tasks, the deadlines, the impossible (both at home and in work). Do you ever have those days where you say to yourself “where did the time go?”. Life moves so quickly that we never stop and give ourselves the recognition we deserve. Give yourself a pat on the back, remind yourself daily of how much of a BADASS you are (book that long weekend vacation, you deserve it ;). And if you trip along the way or make a mistake, it’s ok! How do we continue to learn and grow ourselves if we don’t have mistakes to learn from?
My husband always tells me, “Pumpkin, you worry too much”. I know I do, and I am working on it 😉 He keeps reminding me that life is too short to worry about what might or could happen. Live in the moment, enjoy the present! Enjoy the conversations happening now, the laughs, the stories, the moments, because as we’ve learned, those things can be taken from us in a blink of an eye. This last month has reminded us of that.
Lastly, 1/3 of our lives are spent at work. The people that you work with are the ones that keep you going, helping you achieve your goals and visions. They listen to you and are there to support you- and always have your back! Some people say that the people you work with aren’t your friends, but I think that’s BS. I have made some of the best friendships here at Bottom Line, ones that I know will last a lifetime. There isn’t another team or work family that I would want to have. We have been through all the ups and downs and are getting through it one day at a time. This last year has tested everyone, pushed everyone outside their comfort zone and into a space they never knew existed. We are not out of it yet, but close.
So, I guess the bottom line is after all my rambling is to take care of yourself, recognize all the hard work you are doing and don’t be so hard on yourself, we are all human! Don’t get caught up in the BS and worries that life throws at you, live in the moment and enjoy every second! And lastly, I am beyond grateful to have such an amazing team and work family!
