I was very forunate to have two full weeks off from work this year for the Christmas holidays, and it was spent with family, friends, and doing some soul searching. For quite a while I have been looking for a new, positive perspective on life, and have been challenging myself to try to let go of things that are beyond my control. For someone like me, who has high expectations of myself and my peers, this is one of the hardest parts of my day-to-day life. It is also something that impacts me at work and outside of work, and as I read books, articles and thought more about how grateful I am for all I have during the holidays, I kept coming back to the fact that I allow my work to impact my life outside of it, including friendships, my relationship, my family and my ability to take care of myself. Sadly, while I know that it is not okay, I admittingly have a very difficult time changing it.
