Busy busy and how to slow down!

Life just gets so darn busy.

I want to see what it’s like to live the simple life and really connect to my passions, but it’s just so darn hard! I am trying to make little changes and tweaking and tweaking and then tweaking some more.

I’m definitely struggling with seeing myself alcohol free forever. I think I’m learning a lot about myself in this journey to a better me, and I’m really evaluating my past alcohol consumption. I don’t feel I ever truly gave it an adult try. I feel like I always viewed myself as the sneaky 16 year old sneaking around and drinking and then smoking as I got older. I was sneaking like that with my drinking and smoking to some degree. I never actually thought about my position in life and that is just weird!

It’s weird because in every other aspect I am so “grown up!” I think it was my excuse to not be grown up and to be not responsible during those many days and nights I got myself drunk and forgot my real life and work and family responsibilities, even if only for a few hours. I enjoyed that disconnect. That’s what I’m trying to find. The disconnect and simplicity.

This is going to be a long journey for me! I’m ready to go on it and discover more about life and my personal life path.

Decided to start each morning off M-F at the gym with elliptical and weights and sauna three days a week and an hour long yoga class the other two days accompanied by a long walk with my pup.

I hope this tweak will help me with getting in my fitness and getting it out of the way first thing!

Cheers to a great week! And I mean the kind of cheers with Pom-poms!

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.

  1. I hear you! Life gets so busy! And I think a lot of us struggle with being alcohol free forever. I can’t think about forever at all even though I know that if I drank, most likely my history would repeat itself. So, definitely alcohol free for now!

  2. Sounds like your doing a great job, being honest with yourself and tweaking until you find where and how you need to be! 😊👍🏻
