I mean I just looked and it was July and now I am staring at a August Calendar thinking that this is it. I am a bit perplexed and feeling like time is really not on my side.
Do you feel like that?
I mean did you have plans to do a lot of the "other things" that were "going" to get to and now you find yourself still looking at the pile ups. I tried my hardest to get these things together, yet I still am so far behind from what I had hoped. I just don't know if it's just wishful thinking or try something that I can accomplish in my life time. LOL
No matter what might seem to be getting you to feel behind the "8 ball", just remember, there are more important things in life than these. These are just times to readjust one thing at a time.
Here what happened in my world.
After buying our first home, and doing many changes to get it livable, I had such dreams of turning this "fixer upper to Model home" all at once. I really started full steam ahead to implementing a schedule to get it to my vision.
Do you know what happened? Reality started to kick in. Really, kicked me in the toosh.
Moving in and having so many boxes to get through, finishing the projects we still had left to do, plus adjusting our finances to the new mortgage, and still trying to maintain life and 3 kids and a husband, well, it left me bait upside down.
I really had all intentions of getting the home completely finished and then still have time for me to finish some writing and other personal projects I wanted to finish this summer. But, That was a too big of a bite for me.
I couldn't handle it all. I couldn't push through and muster enough strength. I just felt myself feeling like a A 1 failure.
Then the inevitable happened; I started to feel oppressed.
Life is so large we really do need to processes it in chucks.
I was trying to do so much and I got burned out. Why?
Because all my dreaming wasn't taking in consideration that I have a life outside of my head.
I had three kiddos and a hubby to help. I had friends to visit, trips to enjoy, and plenty of beach sunshine to warm up my life.
It then dawned on my; living my dreams out will happen if I just take it in strides.
So instead of condemning myself for the things I didn't accomplish, I started to look at what
we had done as a family this summer.
Life has been good. No my house isn't finished and my sister is coming in Sept but that's okay. (Maybe I will recruit her to help me put some final touches on this place)
We've had a wonderful fun summer and have yet to make more memories.
So for those things I want to get accomplished, slow and steady will win the race. (one sentence at a time)
Well, keep the courage to keep pushing to your goals.
Climb those mountains, Reach for the goals. You can do it.
I tell you, you just got to keep enjoying the journey: One step at a time.
