Life is good?

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

My life is wonderful. I am able to go to work, pay my bills, own a dog and 2 cats, have a wonderful (almost fiance) boyfriend with assist raising his son. I'm not a millionaire and I don't want to be. All of these are good things and I want to do and give more but at the same time, I feel like I'm already juggling so many responsibilities and projects that adding one more to the list like weight loss is going to send me tumbling down the hill like Jill chasing Jack.

Who says that life needs to be this busy? Where do I cut back on life? I work and I love my job. My job not only challenges me but it's letting me pay my bills. I think I would go insane if I gave up my pets, and my boyfriend is my rock, so giving up that life isn't an option either. I play in a band which gives that necessary break in the week where it's my "alone" time when I don't go hiking in the winter.

So again, where do I cut back? Is weight loss really what it's put out to be? Does reading, brushing my teeth, exercising, meditating, or even EATING, worth the time that I spend on those menial tasks? Some days it seems like the world is standing still and I can't accomplish anything and then others I have so many things and I get all of them done in a very short time span so I add more and more to my list.

Life is certainly a mystery and I guess that's what makes it good? But for now, life is good, I wish I had more brain power so I don't feel like I'm running on E all of the time.

    Do what you can and if you find there are 'other' things you want/need to do, you'll have to sacrifice something else you do. A balanced life is a happy life.
