The Balance of Life

ImageAs we prepare for the coming holiday events, I realize that I am glad that we’re moving when we are because not only can I stay constantly busy and working on some idea or project, I also get to learn a lot about myself in the process. Keeping my mind on something helps me realize specific things that I need to improve on and how essential it is for the goals I have for myself.

First, I have high expectations for myself and my life. I know what I am capable of and I know what’s important to me. There is no reason that I can’t take the skills and education that I’ve gained, apply it, and make something of myself. Regardless of the fact that I didin’t finish college.

Second, it’s primarily my obsessiveness and procrastination that holds me back. Sometimes there are things that I obsess over so much, that it almost blinds me to everything else important in my life. It causes imbalance and horrible anxiety. Learning to balance these two are my main focus as of late. I think the hardest part is identifying it and admitting it to myself. However, I did find a blogger/writter, Sid Savara, that writes specifically about these things. While a lot of it is common sense, I think reading it in his daily newsletter is like a confirmation of the information I should already know. Which helps me to apply it to my life much better.

This is my thought process as of late. Learning to balance these things out during this busy time in our life is going to make our lives, when we move, much much easier.

Keep Moving

Ever have one of those days where you have so much to do, so many goals, and so many possibilities of screwing something up that you just want to sleep?

That has definitely been about the past week for me.

Our move date is March 1st, so in preparation I have been researching, taking notes, making phone calls, and trying to organize funds so that we will be ready to pack up and take our leave and relax knowing that we’ll be okay within that time period.

Then the current paperwork and wrapping up of our time here in Ohio, Final leases, bills to pay off, taxes to file, etc etc.

That along with putting together photo packages, setting up shoots, and just getting this photography business put back together and helping us out a bit financially.

One step at a time, is what I keep telling myself. Every day there’s a new list of tasks to accomplish. Keeping up with each one and staying on schedule is key. I never know what problems we’re going to come across and I am trying to allow for as much wiggle room and breathe time as I can. I can get it done today? Let’s do it.

Unfortunately this week was a problem week and we had a nice near $300 issue occur with my vehicle when we found out I had a bad starter. Fantastic. I’ve gotten passed the stress of it, there’s nothing I can do about it, I’m just thankful that I’ve gotten fairly decent with money and we can take the hit without it hurting too badly.

In the mean time, I have to stay true to myself. In order to do that, I stay on a proper sleep schedule and focus on my diet. Those two simple things help the very way I function on a daily basis. If I feel good and focused, I will be good and focused.

Today started another detox. 21 days of cleansing and rejuvenating my body. This is sort of my way of clearing my head and digging my heals in to give us a good boost for the coming year. It also gets my body in the habit of running on primarily healthy food and simply not craving bad things. I remember when pop was nasty to me and the thought of even trying to eat a whole candy bar made me feel sick. I need to feel that again..

…well, not so much that as the way I felt on a daily basis without those things. I felt freer, more expressive, more artistic, less worrisome. I miss those feelings.

Keep moving. Those are the words that keep playing in my head. Plow through the problems, keep your head on, and keep moving.
