Do It Again

The Logical Heart Knows Best

I waited too late to blog tonight. I went grocery shopping. I go late right before the store closes because it’s less crowded. Now all I feel like doing is vegging out to some Netflix.

I was reviewing my progress towards my quarterly goals over this past month. I felt like I hadn’t made much progress at all, but when I wrote everything out, I was pleasantly surprised. I’d actually been really productive, though in my head it didn’t seem like it. I think it’s because every day I go over my plans for activities and I rarely accomplish everything I’d like to. Psychologically on the daily it seems like I’ve fallen short, but it’s just because I want to do what’s humanly impossible, lol. I’m too optimistic about how much I can fit into a day, heh.

I’m not frustrated like I used to be while working. Work would interfere with my productivity and health. I’d be desperate to figure out how I could make enough money to quit my depressing job which put so much pressure on me to hurry up. It’s hard to be inspired, energetic, and creative under those circumstances. I still have that little voice saying I need to get a move on though, but it’s easier to shake it off. I remember that it’s okay to pace myself.

Now I’m trying to decide how to prioritize my activities. What skills do I need to work on, what makes the most sense? Maybe some activities can have multiple benefits to work in synergy to achieve my goals.

I’m having fun trying different approaches and experimenting. I have so many things I’d love to learn about, but I need to focus on what will help me the most right now. I’ve chosen to learn about writing, that’s a useful skill that will help me in all facets of life.

I’m considering signing up for a video marketing course. I have a free passive income course ready for me to start too. I’ve tried researching on my own to figure it all out, but it’s so much information, it’s overwhelming. That’s when online courses start to be appealing, but which to choose?

That’s when I just start trying stuff on my own and figure it out as I go. When I get stuck, I do some more research and that helps me choose what I need to learn. I can also ask for help in the Conscious Growth Club forums and I can get help on coaching calls as well. So I have so many resources. It’s amazing!

My health and energy are improving day by day. It’s so encouraging. Maybe I really can reach my goals after all. I’m so proud of myself for keeping at it, building and maintaining healthy habits, it feels so good! It would be so amazing if I could restore my health and get back that high level of energy and vitality. Maybe then I could get everything I wanted to be done in a day, plus more ? I don’t wanna be O.L.D. I want to age in reverse. I want to express the music that’s still left in me and to do that I need to be healthy.

So when I’m tempted to skip my exercise or eat cookies for breakfast I ask myself, What do you really want? To be healthy and vibrant or not? It’s entirely up to you, have you decided? And it’s getting easier to do the healthy things. Every day my resolve is strengthened and I’m beginning to reap the benefits. It’s getting easier too.

In a few more months if I keep this up, whoa, yes, it will feel so wonderful. I’ll feel even lighter, freer, and more joyful. Patience and perseverance. I can do this. I’ve done it before, I can do it again.

I’m so grateful for the time and resources to have this opportunity to improve my health and my life so I can then serve in the best ways possible. I wish every person could have such opportunities. I want to do my part in helping the world in whatever ways I can that are also healthy for me too.

I’m halfway done with the Facebook Social Learning Course I’m doing. I’m experimenting, trying to see if it might help anyone. That way I can get feedback to see if I’m heading in the right direction, to see if what I have to offer is a match with what the world wants.

That’s enough rambling for tonight, lol.
