Work has already been a priority in my life. I’ve always given myself wholeheartedly to whatever I am doing. Full speed ahead, peddle to the meddle and all that jazz. I gave work everything in the hopes it would give everything back to me. Was it worth it? You bet…because it brought me to today.
But…I’ve come to learn a very valuable lesson…work is not everything.
This year, while work will be important, it won’t be everything. Life for me will revolve around more than just work. In order to be happy, I need to be more well-rounded in my endeavors. This is going to be my new driving force this year. I will still continue to give 110% to my work, but I will let other things into my life as well.
My husband has a great philosophy about work…”You need to work to earn enough money in order to take the next vacation.” I’ll take that one step further…”I need to work to pay off my debts, put money away for retirement and to take that next great vacation.”
I plan on enjoying myself this year and not let work be the only thing that consumes my life. I am more than my work. My name is Susan Dusterhoft…I am Today’s Working Woman…and this is my year. It’s going to be a great!
