As you all well know (and hopefully appreciate), my blog has become a lot more active recently. I’ve probably put out more posts just this month than I have the rest of the year. Now you may be wondering why this is. No, I have not dropped out of college, and I don’t really have endless amounts of free time on my hands, but I am beginning to learn how to manage myself. I used to play things by ear and just do things when I felt like doing them, however this left me feeling very unproductive. I wasn’t putting 100% into anything that I was doing.
I guess you can say that there has been a major shift in my mentality. Since this shift I have been preparing things in advance rather than doing them at the last second. This is evident when I look at my drafted blogs, my submitted homework assignments, and my increased organization on my desk. Its amazing what a little shift in perspective can do!
Now that I don’t feel so overwhelmed my all of the things that I need to do, I can take more time for myself. I can begin to do the things that had moved from my “later” list to my “never” list. My blog was one of the first things to move from my “never” list to my “now” list, and I already feel better for it. Now I’m working on taking care of my self and exercising more. Yesterday I went to my first Zumba class in a few weeks, and didn’t feel like I needed to be anywhere else. Tonight I plan to go either on a run or a long bike ride to get some excercise in. It feels amazing to be able to set aside time for myself without feeling like I am cheating on my school work, or my blog.
Moving past the paralasis of a long to-do list has been so beneficial to me. Doing things now, rather than waiting has reduced the stress in my life incredibly. Anyway. I just thought I would share my breakthrough with you all, and hopefully inspire you to get stuff done as well.
I hope the rest of your week is absolutely amazing, and I’ll talk to you again very soon.
Peace out, enjoy life, and live the adventure.
