Continuing to Try

Well, this is my 4th week since resigning as a special education teacher. It has been a packed 4 weeks as well. The first week I worked on my writing very hard.
The next two weeks I spent visiting my daughter who is working on her internship for her PH.D.
This week I have spent doing all those little things that you never seem to have time to do.
Well, now I had time. I didn’t get them all done, which just goes to show how much we try to pack into a small period of time.
Next time you feel like you are getting nothing accomplished, sit back for just a second and ask yourself how much are you trying to do in how little time. Perhaps, you are expecting so much of yourself that you cannot reasonably expect to get it all done. If that’s so, plan again. If you truly think you should have finished it, ask truthfully what stopped you. You may find you knocked yourself out of it. Instead of getting upset with yourself, plan a short time-out to regroup and enjoy life a bit. I am finding that life is really great when you do stop and, not only smell the roses, but really look at them and count them as well. Hmm, I am thinking that I may even start thinking about how the roses got there in the first place…
Keep on living,

    It sounds like you are finding a balance between things you think need to get done and what brings you joy. That is a challenge. For me, too much on the to-do list leaves me feeling stressed and drained while too much fun leaves me feeling unproductive, and eventually stressed. Keep at it!

      I am trying to find a balance, and I haven’t yet.
      Yesterday, Thursday, did not feel very productive, yet, today, I have a lot of energy and feel ready to go.
      I am wondering how much of this variance comes from the old having to get up same time, same thing for work every morning and this new, kinda, freedom where I can choose to do as I wish.
      My choices need to be more toward the productive: clean, work, run important errands, but, perhaps, I can alter which order I do these in from day to day and intermingle as well.
      A bit of excitement. I am ready to try!


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!
