I realised that Wednesday now passed me by and I didn't post my desk photo for the week. I am not even going to try and make it up this week. However, I think I have a good excuse - I was out last night with my partner celebrating our 8 year anniversary.
It feels like a great thing to celebrate spending 8 years of your life with someone. It is incredible to think about what we have accomplished and experienced together. 4 house moves, 14 jobs, 3 overseas trips taking in 8 countries, more interstate trips than I can count, great highs and horrible lows, success, achievement, illness, contented happy times, so much laughter, becoming non-smokers and every day life. I wouldn't change a single day of it.
Last night I was wondering what it will be like to go to dinner and celebrate 16 years. What kind of things will happen for us in the next 8 years, and the next 8 after that, and so on. When I look back at the last 8 it fills me with excitement to think about the adventures ahead.
Life is good if you remember to look at the big picture. The day-to-day smaller picture is hard work at the moment and has been for a few weeks now. I haven't been doing the things that are good for my soul. I have a task at work that is hanging over my head and dragging me down. I have been procrastinating and it has overtaken me. Instead of getting on with the job I have been focusing on how much I loathe doing particular tasks and how difficult my current work environment can be at times. Whilst it is truly a difficult environment and the task I have is made more difficult by the circumstances surrounding it, it still has to be done. I know that I will feel so much better when it is done and it will free up my energy to get back to doing things that I want to be doing. So, today is the day. I am going to get it moving.
