Good morning friends! I hope your week is going well. I'm sitting in my blogging chair this morning! It's the same chair that I sit in every time I post. I've missed this chair. It's in a quiet spot in my family room with a view out the back, and nine times out of ten I see deer pass by, stopping for a bit a breakfast. Most often there is a beam of sunlight streaming across the floor, forcing me to shift my position so I'm not blinded by the light, but I'll take that any day. I've definitely missed this chair.
Not only has my schedule changed, but so has my mindset. I never really seemed to have much of a problem coming up with things to blog about because the topics were always close to my heart and on my mind. Today, I have processes, procedures and thoughts about employees rattling around in my head. I'm not complaining....it's all good....really. I'm just trying to figure out the balance that will allow me to concentrate on both work & play. Play, meaning blogging. ....and I'm getting there. I have said it over and over again.....my blog is as much for me as it is for anyone who might be reading it. My posts are my own reminders of what is important in life.
So I'm figuring it out. I'm Prioritizing; looking at my day, setting my schedule, and I'm moving forward, all the while trying to fit it all in. Dr. Edward Hallowell says it best...
"Everyone will have to learn a rhythm for their day; everyone will have to learn to do what matters most first; and everyone will have to find ways of connecting face to face to create the positive emotional state requisite for our best lives."
What matters to you? And are you making room for what matters most? The topics that I write about matter to me. They matter because they remind of me of what is truly important in life. They keep me centered. They give me clarity. They help me let go of the things that aren't important. All the things I need for daily balance. And all of which are important reasons to get the hang of my own rhythm. I'm getting there. I'm gettin' my rhythm on!
