Sometimes we bite off more than we can chew. We get overwhelmed by all there is to do. And we find that we keep adding things to our already busy schedules. And we wonder how in the heck we're going to fit it all in.
This has been me these past few weeks. I had been trying to find ways to pare down my schedule, but instead, kept adding more and more. I'm not even sure how it was possible to do so, but I did.
And I had a few freak out moments. Like...how on God's green earth was I going to do all that I needed to do and get the extra things done too?
I'd like to say that I handled it with grace and ease. But I didn't. I was irritable and overwhelmed and over having so many things to do.
Until I talked with a friend and had a harsh realization.
No, I wouldn't be able to get everything done if I continued down the same path I was on. If I continued doing what I was doing. I was going to have to make some changes. And as we know, making changes is hard. It's scary. And we (aka, I) don't like it.
But I know it's going to have to be done. If I want to reach my goals and achieve success in what I'm trying to accomplish, then I'm going to have to make some changes. And yes, the changes may not be fun right now, but in the long run, it's going to be the most beneficial. I'll be less stressed, which is by far the most important thing. And it means I won't fall behind or neglect everything I have going on.
So instead of having Hulu on watching my shows, I'll put music on and get to work. And instead of scrolling through social media aimlessly, as we all are guilty of doing, I'll put my phone down and study. I'll build time into my schedule to ensure I get everything done.
No more procrastinating. No more trying to skate by with doing the minimum (who, me?!). No more putting things off.
I have big goals and big goals require big action. So here we go. Time to put my big girl panties on and make things happen!
What about you? Have you been putting things off? Not wanting to make changes? Let me know how I can help. Because it's always better when you have an accountability partner!
I hope you all have a beautiful week!
With love and wellness,
