Can I put it all together

Saturday, June 25, 2011

"The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but for what they become by it." ~ John Ruskin

I guess this quote fits me well right now as I try to figure out what my life is and how to pull it all together. It has been many years that I have had to organize my life around a work schedule and I am struggling with the time management of that in terms of everything at home. It is truly a hysterical statement for me to make, coming from Ms. Organized - well guess what, right now I am far from organized. I am trying to build some kind of a schedule to work out and it is so out of sync with what I have done before. It will take skill with my schedule but somehow I will figure it out.

I am super busy right now so it will be hit and miss trying to get on here with any kind of consistency. My new job is wonderful but there is so very much to learn and our entire operation is relocated to a new and bigger office complex the second weekend of July so there is much to do with that on top of everything else.

I start golf lessons this Tues and I am excited about that. It will be a nice thing to get me out and start doing some things with other people. Big and different step for me as I am not used to going out and doing things. Lots of new adjustments in my life but I know I need to do them and I am sure over time things will settle in place. After having lived such a structured life it is so hard to try to survive in what I deem to be chaos.

I wanted to just stop by and say thanks to all for your support and I feel badly that I just can't seem to get much computer time lately. It is a challenge every week but one I just know will find consistency over time. Sending lots of love and hugs and REMEMBER life can bring many, many challenges and diversions and even though my fitness life is upside down, it is very much on my mind - I NEVER lose sight of my goals - I may waver in my consistency but my mind never loses touch with my goals. It is very hard work to stay on top of it but it is all about HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT IT - where you have will, you will have progress no matter what diversions come your way.

    I'm so glad to hear you are doing better. Golfing should be fun! It's all about getting out there and enjoying life as best as you can. I'm sure when you get some free time and get organized you'll feel better since you are so used to structure. I like all the things you talked about when it comes to fitness. Yes we have to listen to our bodies. But don't always listen when it says it's tired every single day...you need to exercise to get energy. I noticed that the first few days wears you out but after that it gives you energy:) Take care and always look forward to reading your blogs!

    You go Karen - tho as slowly and gently as you need. No point pushing it - that won't help. The golf sounds good - a diversion - a new skill - exercise - new friends. Perfect!!
    The organisation of the rest of your life and Spark round the job will come with time. Both will be waiting for you when you are ready. We all understand that your life changes are huge and that you have a new jigsaw to do. Everyone knows that in your usual efficient fashion you will work it out.

    It's good to hear from you and that you are doing well.

    I'm glad to hear that you are going to take golf lessons.

    I hope your move at work goes smoothly. At my job, we are getting a new computer system for our sales and accounts receivable. Just getting that new equipment and finding places for everything is disrupting. I really don't want to think what moving to a new building would be like...

    I am adding you to my friends list so that I can check in to see how you're doing once in a while.

    I hope you have a nice weekend. I'm off to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of one of the local ranches.
