Oh my goodness – what a busy week!
Have been starting work at 06h30, working through lunch leaving and at 16h00. And even then my mind is swimming with work related tasks.
I’ve been a P.A for nearly eight years at this company. Was always very happy – we get our busy times, for instance quarter end is always a hectic time and the hours fly by. But most of the time I plod along quite contentedly and even though sometimes I had space in my day, I’d fill it with random tasks. There was a nagging voice every so often reminding me that I wasn’t using my full potential. Eight years go by so quickly. I was actually only supposed to be here for six months. But when the six months came to an end I got a permanent job offer instead of a goodbye. I jumped at the chance – had learnt so much in the six months and gotten to know everyone. I adored my department and was thrilled the felt the same way 🙂
Recently I got asked to help out with something new. I admit I was all deer-in-the-headlights at first – but I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and nearly 2 months later I’m still helping out. The days fly by in a blur, I’ve got so much on the go at the moment but I’m enjoying the challenge.
There are days I feel as if I’ve been pushed into the deep end sans water wings and for a moment I think I’ve taken on too much. But the uncertainty vanishes after a calming cup of tea, and I soldier on.
I’m rather exhausted this week because it seems insomnia has become a regular night time visitor. Not even chamomile tea is working at the moment 😦
But I refuse to be negative on a Friday and so I’m counting my blessings. Have an amazing weekend to look forward to. We are staying over in Hermanus tomorrow night and hubby booked me a massage at the hotel. I am so excited! The spa appointment is booked for just after our check in time. Afterwards I’m going back to our room and hope to sneak in a nap before we go out to dinner. It is going to be a hubby and I weekend – quality time relaxing 🙂
I am not even going to think about the busy week ahead or equally busy weekend that follows next week. Working on just living in the present 🙂
Have an awesome weekend everyone!
