Warning! Be aware of flying time!

Can you believe it is already into the double digits of the year already? It seems like life just gets busier. As a person whose life isn’t always so go-g0-g0, it takes some getting used to for a bit. I used to be super busy, but the pace of life has waned in the past few years. Ever since a few weeks before Christmas though, it feels like I can hardly catch a break. Outside of the normal 50 hour work week, things just kept picking up pace. Then you have the rush and hustle (and long, long drives) of the holiday. Then I got to rush back to work and take a quick road trip last weekend. Maybe February will slow down if I can get through shooting pictures at a friend’s wedding this weekend and a family wedding next weekend. I forget how to live like this constantly. Even my to do lists have to do lists right now. Anyone else feeling the push right now (or all the time)? What eases the pressure for you?

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. – Douglas Adams


Riding the Wind

Posted in challenge, Goals, Growth with tags , , , , on 2011/01/06 by curiouslywandering

The world certainly does not stop to wait for us to be ready or cease moving when everything is flying by us. It doesn’t care if we have extra challenges on our plates or are implementing big, overall changes in our lives. This is annoying. On the other hand, it isn’t the worst thing ever. It is a tough challenge, but a challenge we can face and overcome none the less. We just have to take things step by step, moment by moment and day by day. Pretty soon all of those steps add up to good stuff happening. In the meantime, we just have to adjust our pace. Grab hold of that wind, hold on like you are hanging over a bottomless gorge, and let then energy around you feed your spirit. So today, I am learning to ride the wind and feed off its momentum. Wahooo (and hang on tight for the bumpy ride ahead)!
