FOCUS During Transition
I should really be writing more for my first book release, "The No Rules Way," or entering all the business receipts into a spreadsheet, or cleaning the truck, or any number of good productive things. This weekend; however, has allowed me the space to just "be." My body has been able to rest, and so has my mind. I've spent some time reading outside in the swing under a shade. I've spent some time sleeping a couple extra hours. I've enjoyed some time with friends and family. The things I haven't had the opportunity to do much of lately. At first I felt like I was being lazy, but I let that feeling go quickly. It's healthy to recharge. Even slowing down to "smell the roses" can give you a recharge.
I thought again of my word for this year - FOCUS. What have I been focusing on lately? Things that don't help me get any closer to my goals, that's for sure. I get so bogged down in the details of trying to stretch dimes into twenty dollar bills that I lose sight of all the things that are already taken care of. I get lonely and feel like I'm not pretty enough or too fat to be asked out. I get caught up in trying to make current situations work that I lose the vision of an end result. I've been focusing on surviving the transitions instead of enjoying the adventure that is life. I'm sure you've never done that...
