I Want vs. I Need

It's Friday! About to finish my first week of training for my new job and ready to tackle just one more day before the sweet weekend to come. To be quite honest with you all, I really want to do this today:
Photobucket
Snuggle up and read a nice book. One of the best feelings in the world honestly. However, I know I need to do this:
Photobucket
Work hard. Stay focused. And require this:
Photobucket
To remember to center myself, each moment, each minute, each second of the day to keep me going. And you know what else I really want?
Photobucket
A decadent breakfast. Pancakes. With tons of powdered sugar. I want it. But, I need to remind myself that I need to eat this instead:
Photobucket
Not necessarily blueberries and bananas all the time, but to remember that my body needs vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants to build a strong healthy body. And, to build a strong mind, I want and need this. All day:
Photobucket
Not owning a cat (because I'm allergic, horribly allergic) but remembering to be silly, to laugh, and to enjoy those types of moments in my day even while I'm at work. 

Happy Friday, everyone!

  12. You have me wanting to go back to bed with a good book and a heap of sugary, buttery, delicious pancakes! *sigh* guess a banana and a snooze on the train to work will have to do!

  13. Hey Cathy! It's a part of life you know. A constant dilemma. But a bit of wit and you know how to find the middle path. And am sure after the training, you'll be the best at your job! Good Luck!!! :)

  14. I feel the same way about work. I'm lucky enough to be gainfully employed in an industry that I really like. I got my first job six years ago, almost right out of college and oh boy were it different then. Everyone seems to wish they were somewhere else, thinking there is always a better place to go.
