Falling off the Happiness Bandwagon

September's Happiness Project Theme is Work, but since I haven't started back to work yet I thought I'd do a general Happiness Project post.  I love the focus that starting this project has brought into my life.  I love how it gives me small, structured steps that lead to happiness in different parts of my life.  But this past month I've kind of fallen off the bandwagon.

I've been a little slack checking off my resolutions for each month.  I think since I knew August was my last month of vacation I kind of threw caution to the wind and really just enjoyed myself.  I ate what I wanted, drank a lot of what I wanted (cabernet anyone?), slothed, and hermited myself up.  And even though it felt great, I'm feeling the effects now.  I'm a bit fatter, not running as fast or as long as I was, and I'm starting to get text messages from friends asking why I still haven't called them back.  Times like this happen and I'm being gentle with myself, but I'm ready to get back on the program.

Going back to work I think will be a big time buzz kill, but it does keep me more on schedule and I thrive on routines.  So I'm ready to start treating my body nicely, treating my friends nicely, and treating my home nicely.
