Life is good. I am blessed to have a wonderful family, work that I love, relatively good health, etc. and so on.
Today I am paralyzed. I feel like a deer in the headlights. I am procrastinating, because I have so many things to do, and not enough time to get them done. I need to prioritize, but feel myself being pulled in multiple directions at once.
I promised myself that I'd clean house and get rid of barnacles (stuff that has been in the house forever that no one needs or uses anymore) as I am drowning in clutter.
We just put a new band together, and I need to practice and work out my parts as we have several gigs coming up.
To climb a mountain, it takes one step at a time.
I have to write and track the music for the puppets to sing in next season's safety programs for the day job.
Then there's the little stuff like laundry and other household chores.
Looking at this on the computer screen makes it seem so much simpler; Less overwhelming!
So, I think I'll start by putting in a load of laundry and do at least 30 minutes of cardio. After I hang the laundry, I'll do some strength training. Then I'm going to take a big box, fill it with stuff to take to the thrift store and stick it in my vehicle. After dinner, I'll go downstairs to the studio and lay out a click track and start putting down tracks for the safety show.
I was invited to a birthday party tonight for a musician that I used to work with. He's not someone that I care to spend time with and I don't want to go, but I am getting lots of pressure from some good friends to at least make an appearance (sigh). So I'll see what time it is when I'm done recording and then perhaps, if there's time, pop in for a half hour or so. But if I can't make it, I won't feel guilty!
