An hour of stillness

September 23rd, 2016 at 03:20 am

I stayed in bed this morning with a cup of hot coffee to update my budget and catch up with things. Since the school year started I have been on the go nearly every hour, until bedtime. Things should simmer down soon, as we all get into the groove of jobs and extracurricular activities.

My new position has kept me very busy. You all were correct, the leadership role has gotten easier with practice! It does feel better to just make a decision and say it directly, rather than put things off or try to say things in a round-about way. It feels good to be making progress in this area. The class that I am currently taking is about professional, ethical behavior in the field. There is a lot of information about how to develop leadership behaviors. Like any other behavior, leadership behaviors need to be taught and practiced until they feel natural. So I have been keeping that in mind as I face anxious situations at work.

Despite the crazy busy schedule during the week, I am fortunate that I don't work on the weekends. That is a good thing, because it give the girls and I moments to just breathe and recharge. I don't feel "ready" to plan any elaborate weekend activity, still adjusting to the year.

Financially, I should get a better feel for my budget next week, when I find out what my paychecks will look like. This will be my first check with my pay raise!

    I always found supervisory positions stressful. I'm sure I would have reached a much higher level in my career if I could have learned leadership skills.
