In the past I’ve talked about how much I wish I had like 100 more hours each day to work on my freelance writing and my blog. I felt if I could just have more time, I would be so wildly successful. Turns out, and I’m guessing it’s this way for most, I do have the time! I just haven’t been respecting it. My relationship with time has been complete crap. Leaving the house late, forgetting to defrost the chicken for dinner, falling asleep and waking up at different times each day are all prime examples of me not showing Time the love it so deserves. So no wonder it wasn’t loving me back.
It’s always fun checking my inbox to find people I had connected with asking me where the hell I’ve been. That was pretty much me a few weeks ago after taking a family vacation with the in-laws to Lake Tahoe. Vacation? While getting out of debt? Yea, well, let’s call it a family reunion instead.
Doesn’t it seem like right when you’re getting ahead, life says “SURPRISE!!!” and suddenly all the email inboxes you’re in charge of go from 0 to over 200 unread emails?? Anyone else? Excuses aside, sometimes we all get distracted by life and end up letting ourselves down. Sometimes our goals go flying out the window and we don’t take the time to go outside, pick them up, dust them off, and give them the attention they need for a few days. Or weeks. Or (hopefully not) months.
