What a crazy two weeks it has been! There have been so many changes that have been happening…from work scheduled changes to home life changes and everywhere in between. Change can certainly be a great thing, but many times it can take some adjusting.
I missed my typical Monday morning post last week because I had absolutely nothing prepared! I feel so behind. Last night, I was thinking about what to write for today and I realized just how busy things have gotten over the past few weeks. I feel more rushed, more tired and more unorganized.
The reason for all of this is because I started a new schedule at work and now I am working nights. Ending my shift at 11 PM and not getting home until midnight (or sometimes later) has thrown me off completely. Previously, I would be home by 8 PM, tuck the kids in bed and have some time to write and store away some posts so that I always had something ready for Monday morning. Although it has only been two weeks with this new schedule, I see that sometimes, a change in one aspect of your life can have such a drastic effect on others. The good thing is that no matter what changes may happen, we all have the ability to look at the positive, but do we have the willpower?
This really got me thinking. How many times in my life have I let external circumstances control my thoughts, feelings and actions? I am sure I have done this tons of times and never really recognized it. I think we all do. Rather than complain about the circumstances I am in, I am choosing to use them as much as I can to my advantage and see the positives. If all we focus on are the negatives in any situation, after time, that is all we see. By developing this kind of mindset, for me at least, I know that I would be unhappy in many aspects of my life. I have been there before and I refuse to go there again.
Instead, in the circumstances I am in currently, I am choosing to look at the positive. I get to see my family more in the mornings, which are now less hectic. I also get to enjoy the weekends (it has been years since I have had all weekend off).
It is becoming more difficult to find time to be able to write, which is something I love to do. When I do find some time, I also find it hard to focus. Have you ever been in this situation before? What did you do to get though it. I can certainly use all the advice I can get.
In my last post, I wrote about the feeling of something new beginning. Perhaps all of these changes I am experiencing are life’s way of pushing my in the direction I need to go. I am still going to try my best to keep up with my posts here and write the best content I can, but I am not going to sugar coat it, it’s gonna be tough. Maybe sharing this and putting it all out there in the universe is exactly what I need to do.
Anyway, I hope to be back to regular type of posts and my regular posting schedule very soon. For right now though, I need to catch up on some sleep. Thanks for continuing to read my posts as I am making these transitions. Also, if you have not checked out some of the old posts here, please do so and let me know what you think. I always love to hear from readers.
