What I Learned from my 3-Week Unemployment
What I Learned about Me
I had a great time being off work.
It was a great time of introspection. (There's the therapist in me!)
I learned that there is a wonderful blogging community that both inspires me and keeps me accountable.
I learned that I love the feeling of having leftovers put away and the kitchen being cleaned immediately after eating.
I learned that if there is closed caption on the tv on the elliptical machine, it makes me nauseaus.
I learned that my arms are pretty stinking strong.
I learned that I have a need to do something professionally. I have always thought that I could stay at home and be lazy all day. Any more time unemployed and I would have volunteered somewhere.
I learned that I can do what I set my mind to. I have discovered the chocolate chips Nathan hid, and have not had any! I have spent a great amount of time at the gym because I didn't give myself the choice to back out.
I learned that I can be incredibly motivated by stickers.
I learned that I really am a pretty good cook and my cooking instincts are trustworthy.
I have learned that I deserve to be healthy and happy.
And I'm going after it!
