I was looking through my documents at work the other day and came across something that was dated February, 1999. I don't recall why I did this, and that seems odd to me.
I find it very interesting that it is so much like me still, even my saying "life is not a dress rehearsal"
My light side shows a zest for life, making sure that I do what I like. Life is not a dress rehearsal, we don’t get another chance to come back and try over. When I grow old and am at rest, I will not look back and have regrets that I was never able to do something I longed for; I will have lots of great stories and memories. I live life to it’s fullest, spending time with my friends, cooking and enjoying good wine, sailing or just floating in the water. The house will be cleaned someday…..
My dark side shows some of the same zest for my work, but I tend to become so focused that I can forget about others as I strive to accomplish many things. In my search for packing “everything in”, I forget that some are not as focused or driven as I am, and this can lead to misunderstandings and hurt. My husband has been the biggest help to me in this area, pointing out when I am being a “roadrunner”. I have taken great strides and improved immensely in this area.
