Moving Forward

It seems that it was just last week that were talking about New Year’s resolutions, and here we are in March already. I find myself somewhat behind in my projected work. There were a few things that I wanted to have going by now, but life issues got in the way.

Plus, I find myself distracted by new projects and I put one thing on hold to focus on another. Not an effective way to get things done. Unfortunately, I have no control over this. It must be a disorder, or syndrome, or something. It’s certainly not the behavior of a healthy person. But no one can really help me anyway because the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. And to that, I say, never! Okay, I’m admitting it here to you all, but if asked in life, I will deny it.

Okay, so now I have to figure out how to get everything done in a time frame that is not only doable but that won’t stress me out too much. Just thinking about it makes my head hurt.

But I decided that however I have to work it out, that’s all I can do. I can’t stress about the time that I’ve lost because it won’t change anything. All I can do is keep moving forward.

  1. This happens to me so much that I don’t even want to recall. I do know that I always start out with every intention of getting everything done. Then well life happens. I think at times I just put too much on my plate and instead of trying for moderation, its all or nothing. Maybe we put too much pressure on ourselves to do, do and do more, never thinking about evening it out and do some one day and then some the next…well that was my intention for this year…since I never made resolutions anymore.
    Moderation and acceptance is the motto for this year…so far I have started writing a book, and have got about 15,000 words written. I have now been faithfully doing yoga practice everyday for 33 days, I make a point of eating well and I have lost that annoying 10lbs I gained last summer..so I think that the motto for this year is working. Even if everyday I have at least one thing I never did get to, or finish, but that is life 😉

    1. Yes, moderation is key. I’ve always said that. My problem is that I’m always afraid that one boat or another is going to sail off without me. I have to learn how to just watch the sailing ships from the shore, sitting on a lounge chair, with a nice strong beverage in my hand.

      1. I don’t want to drink anything stronger than me. That just sounds like the beginning of a bad sci fi movie. But we can get some pizza when we’re in NOLA and you and Tara can drink beer and pretend it’s strong.
