You know those corny sayings that seem to clog the internet, you know, the ones where they are supposed to inspire you or uplift you? I read those quotes and I find one common thread between them all and that is the moment I was reading them, I should have been moving on and taking the next step towards my goal. As positive as they are, these are things we should be telling ourselves on a daily basis. I’m a strong believer in self preservation for the sake of the quality of life that you really want.
I was doing research, making appointments, drafting plans… and I stopped myself and smiled. In all my adulthood, 2017 has been the best I have had yet. I used to do things here and there, not out of things I had to do but for things I felt I needed to do. Going with the flow and letting go of this invisible control we all think we have.
Today, I started to notice how all the things I’ve been doing up to this point have come to fruition. I used to get stressed out when I didn’t know what was going to happen after working so hard. Now, I find myself smiling more and knowing that this whole journey was preparing me for something bigger than just what I love to do. I’m on my way to fulfill that mission I gave to myself.
My new addiction… The art of letting go…
I was hearing and reading quite a bit of reviews regarding this movie. I haven’t watched any of the trailers for this movie and it was a good thing. I am all for psychological thrillers, however I was disappointed at how predictable it was. I’m going to totally spoil this movie so if you haven’t watched it yet.. stop reading this post right now.
Like I said I love scary movies filled with gore, however when it comes to psychological thrillers things have to make sense to me. I didn’t understand why he kidnapped these girls with no plan. It didn’t make any sense why they were held. I mean, honestly I thought that was the weakest and one of the important details off the whole plot. There was no extortion of money, no deviant motive.. it didn’t make any sense. Now, granted James McAvoy did an excellent job portraying each of his personalities, it was sadly predictable and didn’t keep my attention for a lot of the movie.
I won’t be watching this movie again, but now I know their advertising team did a great job . lol
I spent the entire day getting my schedule together for the upcoming week, from making a new playlist for my radio show to getting my tasks in order. I have some videos to edit and I can’t wait to upload them. I also have some interviews to plan for as well as content to get organized. I admit, I’ve been all over the place, but I’m getting closer to be more consistent. Believe me when I say that this is one of the biggest challenges for me.
For example, it’s 12:09am on I’ve been so distracted with Twitter and my Instagram feeds and having a blast. I love laughing with my online folk, I can’t help but to share a few crazy tweets and pictures. Ah well, at least I’m having fun and meeting new people in the worldwide web. I can honestly say I’ve met amazing people, they could also be catfishes but at least I’ll have fun trying to find out. haha
Ok, I’ve really got to focus.. omg I’m the worst! haha
I’ve decided to get some training for the sake of my business. It’s been a long road (2 years) and this is the final step. I’m so excited! I love education and developing my skills, I find it very empowering when I challenge myself.
I am in desperate need for a new Erin Condren life planner. I’ve had them for the last2 years and I thought I could go without one this year. WRONG! The way my thought process is, I need something physical and all in one place. My boys and I have all kinds of appointments and I’m getting lost as I write things in my phone, notebooks and scrap pieces of paper. They’ve developed some new products which is tempting me to buy everything. I am committed to have self discipline I always try to push myself to the limit which has worked in the past, but I wear myself out. For example, here I am at 1:45am, wide eyed and fully awake with energy. So, I really need to find that balance between work and personal life. I know I’m a workaholic, but I was also told that I need to slow down and take my time. In my brain, I just can’t! I have so many challenges this year and I really need to get as much rest as possible.
Now, I have to prepare 10am and 10pm radio shows, edit two videos and pay some bills… oh man, my plate is so full I’m gonna need an extra one.
Time to sleep!
Have a great night!
Another Wednesday and we’re halfway to the end of the week. My new time schedule for my radio shows are working out great. My evening shows have been so much fun and interacting with my online peeps while I do the show has left me crying with laughter. I’ve met more great people that share my sense of humour and it’s so refreshing. It reminds me why I love what I do. Making people laugh so they can forget about whatever is bothering them is my goal.
Getting into my new routine is so exciting and is solidifying my businesses. I’m getting closer to my goals and I’m thoroughly enjoying the journey. I’ve learned so much and I am on the verge of getting more education for my businesses. Next on my list is my promotion and marketing plans, I’ve found that this can be tricky and I’m exploring different strategies for each of my businesses. I have a couple ways involving social media (of course) combined with some “old school” business practices I’ve learned over the years. It feels great to be able to execute and tweak my skills and watch them evolve into things I never thought was possible. I have to remind myself to take my time and work on my projects being mindful of the small details.
I’m keeping my eyes on the prize!
