I had planned to continue with the 2015 Goals Series today. I have three more goals to share. Coincidentally, they are the three goals that will be the most challenging for me, and the three that I have been procrastinating on for the longest. But, I'm tired, folks. It's only Wednesday, but I'm tired.
So I decided to take a pause in the series posts, and just pop in to chat. I don't really have a particular topic in mind to discuss, so this will be one of those rambly posts I warned you about.
(I'm not procrastinating. Really. I'm not.)
I still find that I'm struggling with my time. I'm struggling with finding enough time to do all of the things I want to do. There are so many things! Yes, I could wake up earlier. Or I could do something on my lunch hour. Or I could go to bed later. The problem I face is, I love to do all those things, too! I love to sleep until the last possible moment in the mornings. And I like to use my lunch hours to unwind, when I can. The truth is, most days I don't even step away from my desk for lunch. And staying up late? Ha!
I also have trouble with prioritizing. I tend to do the fun things first -- the things I really want to do -- and then bemoan when I run out of time before I can do the un-fun stuff -- the things I really don't want to do.
The thing is, I know that it's all about choices. I have to choose how I want to spend my time. I have to either live with the choices I make, or make different choices. It's quite simple, really. But at the same time it's so hard!
This turned out to be a whiny post, didn't it. Not what I intended, but I won't apologize. I want this blog to reflect who I am. And, sometimes I'm a bit whiny. But don't worry, it won't last long.
Now I'm going to go put on my jammies, have a cup of tea, and meditate. And tomorrow will be a new day. And it will be more productive than today, because that will be the choice I make.
Thanks for listening.
