I am typing this on my phone tonight. My computer decided to update. And because I did not write earlier this is my only option. I have become a late slicer. I did not begin like that in fact I began as an early slicer.I had all intentions of staying in early slicer but as in many of my other life, when I begin with I don’t usually end with in fact.
I have a hard time keeping up with things in general. I suppose I’m more of an event by event planner. Not super consistent in anything I do. I’ve had to learn how to go against myself in many situations and especially in school.I always get things done I meet deadlines, I’m on time, I’m dressed appropriately. I was talking to some friends at the softball game tonight who have had great success and losing a bunch of weight. I think to myself I know how to lose weight and I should lose weight.
In the time I’ve been taking to write every night I could actually be going to the gym, but then when would I have time to write? The whole keeping up with everything philosophy I totally get it. It totally gives you more time and more peace at least that’s the way it seems. The reality is I don’t keep up with anything really. There’s a pile of clothes that need to be hung up. There are dishes in the sink that need to be washed. There’s papers in a pile that need to be graded. They’re saved items on Facebook that need to be read. There are running shoes that need to be used. And don’t even get me started on my classroom!
So as I sat down to write this, I told myself I would try to catch up a bit this weekend. To put some clothes away, do some dishes. grade some papers, find time for some exercise. No, make time for some exercise. You see I’ve spent at least a half an hour to an hour every day writing. I have kept up with that. I know I can do it. I might not be keeping up with all the things in my life simultaneously but I figure if I can put my energy into one thing once in a while I will keep moving forward. My choices not everybody’s choice.
