Half-Way to the Point of No Return

Halfway point

It feels like May just started and yet the middle of the month is quickly approaching. As I look on my lists of projects and goals to get accomplished I am noticing a terrible pattern from last year that seems to have repeated itself. I am not anywhere near halfway through my list and the latest financial difficulties that I have been experiencing lately have not helped my business or my moral for hanging in there.

Nevertheless, I have not now, nor have I ever been a quitter and while I know that it is going to be quite a stretch to get the majority of my goals tackled by the end of this year, the main thing is that I make the strongest effort possible. Now I have gotten quite a few things started, projects that I have begun working on and have either gotten stuck on, or just have some more preparation to do to get it going, but starting is the important part. I feel like once again I am behind the eight ball and of course I always know that there is more that I could be doing but I do the best I can with what I can.

Last week was one of the most peaceful and joyous feeling weeks that I have had in a while and not because I didn’t have any problems or complications. But rather because I finally stopped stressing and obsessing over those very problems and complications. I enjoyed each day as it came and whatever came with it. I did things spontaneously that I probably wouldn’t have done otherwise. I hung out with my best friend and spent some money that I probably wouldn’t have spent otherwise because I would’ve been too stressed about how spending that would’ve affected something else. I had fun and I lived in the moment last week, something my best friend has been trying to get me to do for the longest time. I couldn’t change the difficulties but I could live in the moment and enjoy it.

Now because of some technical difficulties I was not able to really blog last week but I am glad that I am back to my blog this week. I hope all of you are where you need to be as we get closer to the middle of the year but if you’re not, don’t worry, you’re not alone. As long as you are putting in the effort and doing the best you can do then you should be proud of yourself. But what’s important is that you live in the moment and enjoy the little things along the way. Take care and embrace the moment you are in!
