Every have so much on your mind that you can’t function?
Ever have to focus on one thing, but can’t seem to because you are focusing on something else?
Well, that’s me today. I have to do a lot of school work, but my head really isn’t in it today. I can’t let it just sit. I’m really good at that. If there were a class for letting your papers sit until the day before they are due…I’d get an A. In fact, I think they would ask me to teach the class. This is actually a habit that I am working on breaking. I am trying to make sure that I am more consistent in what I am doing.
I have really big dreams, goals, and aspirations, but I often times let the fear of failure get in my way. It stops me in my tracks. I long to be so perfect at all that I do, that at times, I end up doing nothing.
OK…After writing that, I am asking myself if I really want to publish it and my answer is yes, I do. I don’t want to hide behind a lie or a fa-sad of perfection, knowing that I am a work in progress.
If you’ve read my blog any, then you know that I am on a mission to encourage myself and others to be 100% authentic. So this is my space of grace for myself today as I say how I really feel about that topic.
This isn’t even the reason why I was writing this post, but I just went there and it’s ok…
The things that I have on my mind are knitting…
Remember this sweater? Well, mine will be a bit different, but I’m still working on it. I just have to make sure that I find the time to knit. With all of my other projects, it feels impossible, but…you make time to do what you want to do, right?!
I am also thinking about working on my new web design website.
Yes, that’s right! I am establishing myself as a web designer. I will be working on the web development in the near future. However, the first step is to set up my design site. I am so excited about this! If you’d like to get in contact with me about designing your site send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . You can also check out the website. It will launch on April 15, 2014. The site is http://simplyinspireddesigns.com
What else do I have on my mind?
Oh not much. Just getting into grad school, reading, a few book reviews that I’ve been asked to do, my podcast, and Blog Talk Radio show, my new bible study coming up, a crochet project to be completed, a website to be updated, a proposal to be sent out, a blanket to finish, another website project, and a card to make for a special young lady. That’s about it…no there’s more. I’m just going to stop for now. None of this includes the things that I do for my family. 😉
I have a to-do list to make sure that I am not overwhelmed by it all. Oh and I’m blogging about it to get it out of my system.
Now I can focus on my school work.
Do you ever have times when you feel like you can’t move forward with something because you have too many other things on your mind? What do you do to make sure that you are able to focus? Do you have a characteristic that you are working on, like me…consistency? Share your thoughts with me by leaving a comment below.
Here’s to getting focused!!!
Have a nice day 🙂
