I haven’t had a day off in three weeks and it’s completely by choice. I have a lot that I’m trying to accomplish right now, while working as much as possible, in order to have the funds to make it all possible. Which is why I was annoyed when I wasn’t called into work one day this week.
I found myself with a whole day that I had to do whatever was needed.
I took advantage of the off hours to run errands while avoiding rush hour and mobs of people.
My body took advantage of the down time to demand a nap. Evidently, I have been neglecting it’s sleep needs.
The most important thing that happened, however, was I took the time to focus on my projects that sometimes only get my leftover time. I have these projects that I want to turn into my full time life, but I give them the back burner to focus on monetary ventures of the moment.
You see my error.
If you spend all of your good energy and time to focus on things that don’t matter at the end of the day, how will the things that matter prosper?
Take from my realization and take some time to focus on you. Whether that’s on your values or a project that you’ve really wanted to finish or even just do nothing. There’s a lot of joy that can be found from doing nothing. No matter what you’re doing, just be sure you’re a priority so that everything else can prosper around you.
