Sometime's life is full of monkey wrenches ...

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Ah. It's been a couple of weeks now since I've blogged last. Obviously, my journey is not done yet, but I've had to hit the pause button on the intensity lately because life is full of monkey wrenches sometimes.

The interesting thing is that when a person focuses on changing one area of their life, often the other areas of life follow right behind.

That's happened for me, and continues to happen. But sometimes, it's a bit much to keep on top of it all.

When I lost control of my waistline, I lost control of the other areas of my life too, and now, everything is changing again, only for the better.

However, sometime change doesn't come without it's associated growing pains, and I've had those too lately in spades.

I'm not giving up, but I admit, it's got me a little knocked out of my previous momentum with a little too much to handle all at once.

It's a learning experience for sure.

So where am I now?

I'm getting ready to refocus. I'm making a plan, and I'm ready to move forward once again. I'm not going to let the monkey wrenches in life to interrupt me permanently. But it is time for me to expand my focus and to bring the changes in each area of my life together because I suspect that will help everything come together a little more smoothly.

    I see you are ready to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and go forward.

    Sometimes the best thing you can do is to step back and take everything into perspective, it's a hell of a lot better than just getting swept away!

Sorry to hear that things are a bit intense though. Hope life gets a bit smoother soon.

    Well, monkey wrenches can jam up the works or they can be used to turn things in the right direction. Since you're posting this, you must be getting a handle on them.
