Happy New Year!
Even a day late!
Hope you had a wonderful time during the holidays!
I was able to spend it with my family and reconnect with some old friends!
I had to work as well.
I took the week to reflect on my life .
I am still working on my 2012 resolutions or goals as I call them. .
I am currently trying to find a balance between family, friends, work, blogging, and some other commitments. Last year when I started this blog I knew that I shouldn’t expect any results if I do not put any work into it. I knew that everything needs dedication. What I didn’t know was the enormous time I would spend blogging that at times would make it feel like a chore. I was filling guilty as well because I was taking so much time away from my family. Then when I left my blog unattended I felt horrible. I was torn.
What I realized as well was that I was really bad at time management. I was traveling so much that when I got home I was playing catch up right up as I was about to leave again. It was a never changing process. I started to fill overwhelmed. In the end I had the mentality of “all or nothing” .
I am trying my best to change this. I will be taking baby steps to get things done and not feel overwhelmed. Maybe not schedule full both my mornings and afternoons with activities for my little toddler, running errands, etc.
I think most of all would be organization. I need to organize both my home and myself. After all it’s January! It’s a New Year! A new start!
Everyday instead of “ I will do this” , I will use “ I will try” that way I do not feel so guilty if I do not get something done that day. That way it doesn’t feel like a chore but a choice.
Here are few quotes that sum up how I feel today. My inspiration:
Of course a little bit of this
I am off to learn few things about time management and organization as well as learning how to believe in myself and stop comparing myself to others.
I will try to post about the new things I have found, maybe they will help someone else in the process.
