Day 121 - Tail Chasing.
Day 121 - Hey There! Saturday is here. I'm going to keep this post short and sweet as hopefully you are currently watching Saturday morning cartoons, snuggled in a big, fluffy bed eating a pile of syrup drowned waffles. So let's briefly talk about the week so we can get back to watching the Smurfs. Was this week hectic? Yes! Was it a great week? Yes! Did it feel like a lot got done this week? Hum. Well, um, kind of.
Here is how I would describe my week: chasing my tail. Just when I was the edge of a light bulb moment, it faded into a mental circle. For example, each day I wrote this blog was a painful process. I pulled out content word for word from the bowel of my brain. Every word seemed wrong, invalid and forced. Every image seemed to contradict the previous day's post. The lighting was off on the photography. The recipe didn't turn out. The quote wasn't quite right. Illustrations looked wonky. Yes, I was chasing my tail all week.
This brings me to today. Chasing your tail means we are trying to obtain something just out of our vision. The best way to stop chasing our tail is to create a list of things that are directly in front of us. Today, write down and create a list of ten things you are consciously trying to slow down and enjoy. Here are my ten: sleep, eating, family, sunshine, knowledge, new friends, creating, health, technology and cake.
Now, get back to the cartoons and waffle eating and I will see you tomorrow!
