Back to work!

Hard to believe the work week is over. The vacation time was wonderful. I crossed several things off the “List of Possibilities” — including starting my thesis. Originally, I’d planned to write it (completely), but got more realistic and realized that simply starting it would be an important step.

It was a quiet week. The first few days I was alone — happily puttering, running errands, reading, sleeping, star gazing, watching movies, in-line skating, and planless. That was the most relaxing part — I had no appointments! Thursday a former work colleague stopped by for coffee and cake. Saturday I went in-line skating with a friend along the shore of Lake Constance. It was a beautiful day — sunny and breezy at the same time. Perfect! As we skated back, we heard live music in the harbor and decided to have a drink at an outdoor bar and listen for a while as we watched the sun set. It was so beautiful!

The success was: realistic expectations and absolutely no stress! Like a kid, I woke up in the morning and did what I felt like doing. By the time Monday morning rolled around, I was refreshed and eager to get back to work. Wondered what I’d missed and looked forward to seeing my colleagues again. What a great feeling!

Although it started a bit more hectically than anticipated, work has gone well this week. There were some very satisfying experiences. I am happy, satisfied and grateful. 🙂 It’s the life I always wanted, and the funny thing is: It’s so simple!
