Time is Precious
This week I was reflecting on my own journey, on what I want for myself and what people want from me too. Overflowing myself with events, ideas and get-together, I had to slow down and chill….
Seriously, this year, apart from my couple main goals, having an assistant is going to be on the list. Since that is not possible for now or for most in general, it is time to slow the plane down and glide through. You see, my days are filled with a 40 hours a week job, an extra 15-20 dedicated to my company and the rest is divided between boyfriend and friends. This means many events to go to, random trips and any other thing that comes up.
While I am working non-stop to pay bills and at the same time to keep my dream alive, I am also making new friends and having a deeper connection with them. On top of that, I am a very sociable person, I move through many social areas in life and sign up for weekend adventure such as volunteer work, dancing or concert hopping. This means that every few weeks I get to see people who I haven’t seen in a while, this means that I’ve got week after week booked up with endless amount of things to do.
Yes, while I try to keep a balance of it all, it also means that I am non-stop moving all day long, every day. Keeping my priorities straight, I put my company first and my close friends second. This makes it easier to live cool stories with good friends and stay in touch with them as much as I can. The rest of the adventures that come up, I see what I am able to do with them. This may mean seeing me just once a month or so… hey, something is better than nothing. I like to do it all until I start to have priorities that are clearer to me. (Yes, I plan my schedule around my day job and other extra shifts that I might have to add-on)
Me in a nutshell. Crazy, ain’t it… well, look at your life. It must look somewhat similar, just change a few words for you own personal hobbies and there you have it. Boom! Life!
Let’s get down and dirty: Time is precious.
When I find myself getting too caught up in my goals, working overtime or trying much too hard to do it all…. I holler “Stop!” And I do. I take a quick step back, either work fewer hours or take a couple of evening offs to myself or just readjust my schedule and as I am working, take it easier.
And all the same, it is also time to be thankful and appreciative for who I am in this moment, what I’ve done so far and fall even more in love with what I am doing. Yup, not only do I stop the train, on top of that, I realize all that I am doing.
This is what we want you to do next time you are having one of these moments:
Holler “Stop!” to yourself, breath in and out…. take a step back. Ask yourself if what you are doing is what you really want, if you are taking in a bigger load than you need, if everything that you are doing is in balance, if you need to take something out of your life to put better things in….
Once you thought out those questions and even added a few of your own, take that time to meditate and readjust your schedule in the best way possible. Reclaim your power by having a “You” moment. Tell the world around you to stop too, let them know you are taking a couple of moments to yourself. Doesn’t have to be a lot, maybe an hour a week or a full afternoon will give you just want you need to slow down a bit.
Yes, you want to do it all and you feel like you have plenty of responsibility everywhere… yet, don’t we all? You aren’t superhuman. Take time to sit down, unwind and open your eyes.
All of this will help you get back on track, realize what you really want to do and remember to be thankful with everything you have.
What do you do when you get too caught up with your life? What’s your own solution that you want to dish out with us?
