Finding some space

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Juggling too many balls means you never focus on anything for long enough to take stock, evaluate, see things for what they really are and move on.

I'm awaiting the results of my recent job application, but realise I can't achieve even small steps forward, with Spark or anything else, until I find some space. So, until I have an answer on the job front, I am reducing my hours in school. I'm paid on a non-contract supply basis, so that is possible.

It will cut my money back, by about fifty pounds a week, but I can run with that. If the new job isn't offered, I will also have much more time in the summer. Either way, the plan is to plan - for that better, fitter and more satisfying life.

Here we go . . .

    Good luck with the job, I really hope it all works out the way you want it too. It will be good for you to have some "me" time, something which I try, but often fail, to achieve for myself.
Make the most of your reduced hours and relax.

    Ah - so now I understand your status. Forgive me if I was flippant.
I completely understand your need to make space for yourself - I know from experience that a life that is too full on a daily basis removes the possibility of being thorough and measured with life choices. For me me it's also a way of hiding from things - although it is often difficult to define what exactly I'm hiding from. What I know - for myself - is that sooner or later I grind to a halt and then I only function at 50 per cent which is no good to anyone.
Sounds like you're correct - time to concentrate on yourself and use your energies to improve all the things that you think you need to fix - for YOU.
Will be thinking of you and wishing you well - for your job and for your life changes.

    I really hope you find out soon about the new job - it would be great for you to have one place to put all of that positive energy of yours. Here's hoping with fingers, toes crossed. And if you can swing the reduced pay then by all means take the time to devote to your health. Whatever happens on the job search - having increased health and energy will be so good for you. Here you go to success and health.
