On: Life Getting Busy
The last few weeks I have been slacking in the blog department, I must say.
I just have been challenged with getting the creativity juices flowing…between busy times at work, evening plans, working on wedding plans, and my kickstart fitness challenge bootcamp classes (which I promise to write a final post about soon), I just have not had the energy to blog.
My bad, bro…
But this is no one’s fault but my own.
When life gets busy, you make time for things you love. Simple as that.
How do I know haven’t made time for doing what I enjoy? Besides the obvious fact that I have not had added many posts lately…
Well, I have noticed these past few weeks I get in a funk at night. I have started letting things going on with my family start to eat away at me. I worry about my gram. All these little things that I had a *pretty okay* grip on…were starting to affect me.
In times like these, I am learning to take a step back, breathe, and give myself a little love with things like these. (spoiler: I had an amazing bath bomb last night AND have a massage scheduled at the end of next week.)
I saw a quote the other day that states:
“Clarity comes when you step back and realize that what you’re feeling and overthinking now won’t even matter in a few months. Breath through it and think of the bigger picture instead of replaying thoughts that drain you.”
This hits home more than I can say.
One of my biggest struggles in life is worrying about the future and what “could” happen. I have been working on this greatly over the past few years…this past year especially (see this post on a journal that really helped me with this.) I have noticed that I don’t dwell quite as much on the little things and things that “seem” like they are the end of the world when they really are not.
All transparency: I have a LONG way to go.
But that means in times like the ones I mentioned above, when I *feel* myself starting to spiral, I can check myself more quickly.
So, for now I know I have to whip my butt into shape and get back to doing what I enjoy: i.e. writing and creating content.
And with that, my friends, I bid you a very good night. And for my fellow insomniacs, especially the DSPD’ers like me, I bid you a hopefully not terrible night of moderate sleeplessness.
