Right now I am working on the road and have a realization that one or more of the following has happened:
I wasted my one day off in a month catching up on a project.
I haven’t had more than 5 1/2 hours sleep a night since…I am too tired to remember.
Good intentions of going to the gym daily has turned into weekly.
I have not been outside for 4 days, unless you count that little gap between the boarding tunnel and the airplane.
Worst of all there is a looming, stressful, deadline and instead of doing the required work, I am writing on my blog site!
Yes to all the above, so I suppose it is time to do something about it. Tonight I will go to bed at a decent hour, dreaming about that day off. Tomorrow I will get up and go to gym before heading my meetings. In the afternoon I ‘ll work on projects and take a walk outside along the ocean’s edge.
This is familiar territory for me. I am a busy person and occasionally my schedule jams. When this happens I stop, re-evaluate, and take care of myself. I will ever be that zen, balanced, and relaxed person people say I should be. The best I can do is occasionally crash with exhaustion and take a bubble bath. Perhaps living at a breakneck-pace-and-crash is my balance? For sure I am not going to be upset with myself or feel guilty for the life I lead. That would only be another item on the list anyway.
