I'm spending another weekend at my parent's condo in VA Beach. I am dreading the day when they have to rent it out again. I love being here and getting to spend time near the water is so restorative.
It was a hard week at work. I've been so tired lately. Part of my plan to make life a little easier in 2013 is to get some more sleep. I can't sit at work and struggle to keep my eyes open. I can't come home and pass out at 6pm only to wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning to start the cycle over.
The chaos of the holidays has passed and I need to get back to that place of focus and productivity that led me to the decision to change my life and try to become self employed.
The timing was awful for me to make such a large decision like that because I immediately became bogged down with plans for the holidays and the usual wintertime stresses. It has left me feeling desperate for instant gratification and disappointed with myself for losing focus during what should be something very exciting. So I'm acknowledging that disappointment and I'm also discarding it.
It's not helpful. It's not constructive.
I'm going to get back into work mode and make things happen for myself. I feel like I'm coming out of a fog and I know this feeling well. I keep reminding myself that everyone has down time and that life is forever swinging back and forth from good to bad. Without times like that, how would we be able to measure our success?
So here's to more reading, more writing, more creating and more joy.
Thank you guys so much for your support, I am so excited to see what this year has in store for us!
