Taking stock

Thursday, August 08, 2013

In spite of what my dad said about me being obsessed about "everything", I am not. I will admit to hyper-focus. I get presented with things and I go into overdrive to learn more about whatever it is, and act accordingly. It really is the only power we get sometimes. You could argue that I get frustrated either because I can't learn fast enough or I can't do what I need to, not through my own fault, but because I need to rely on someone else or for pieces to fall into place. So yes, I get stressed, but I think it would be worse if I did nothing or less than I think I should.

So are my expectations too high? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Today, my personal goal is to figure out ways to carve out some happiness. There are two main stumbling blocks: lack of time in the day and lack of money. I get pretty close to despair when I read articles about finding more of each because the articles usually mention taking action I've already incorporated in my life and there still isn't enough.

Still, I can prioritize and that is really the goal for the day. I need to pick and chose the "have to/ want to/would like to eventually".

    I was thinking about this same thing today. I went out to lunch by myself to get away from a stressful day at work and was thinking "I just wish I could be consistently happy." I know it's possible. We just have to find our way to do it! Wishing you success in your search! "Each new day brings the promise of good things." Hope your day was a good one! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Oh friend...you're singing my SONG!!! One thing I have learned is that it does NOT take money nor time to be happy....happy can be had no matter what we're doing or when we're doing it! However, having said that...I'm still working on the "happy" too! I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good at WORK!!! Not so good at play.

    Onward we go...onward we go...

    Cheers,
    Sandi
