Something new

Today I did something new. I went out to work. Meaning: I took my laptop outside and did work at my corner coffee shop. It was kinda nice to escape into the outside world. My lesson for today is work somewhere new and renew your spark.

I’m not saying I’m a weirdo who never gets out. Check my Facebook page, I get out. However, I don’t often get out of the house when working on my business. That is of course unless it’s for a meeting or something business related.

It can get kinda stale. You can only look at that pink postie, (you haven’t taken down because you haven’t completed that task but you don’t wanna forget so you leave it up) one more time before you crack.

So, today I went out and used by laptop for it’s intended purpose. I didn’t work at home. I ordered a pumpkin carmel latte and a glass of ice water, for here. I let my coffee get cold, like I always do when I’m working and I poured it over my leftover ice. It was quite nice except I was outside, in the cold, freezing my ass off so I could chain smoke while I worked. The teenager in me made a point to shiver with pride for not going inside once I realized it was freezing. Ridiculous.

In short, I didn’t feel like I got much done but I think breathing the city air at my cafe table was just what I needed to break up the week. I think maybe I’ll make a habit of doing once a week from now on. I would go more except this working girl is on a tight budget.

Until next time,

Winter Break

 When school is out and the kiddos are home it’s hard for me to focus on what needs to be done. I struggle with finding the balance between selfishness for what I want to do and what I “should” be doing.( I think what I “should” be doing is a reaction to some kind of guilt at not spending every ounce of winter break focused on my children but even realizing that doesn’t change the way I feel about it! Weird!) 

 I have this big presentation coming up and it feels like I’m on a precipice looking down at the world as I know it and being certain it’s about to change. For the better, I know that for sure but how much? I want my life to change so that I hardly recognize it. I want to become a bigger better version of myself. I know I can do this but at the same time I’m afraid I can’t do it alone. Not that I absolutely can’t but I just don’t want to wait that long. If that makes any sense.

  I guess I knew that starting my own business would be a lot of hard work, I just wasn’t prepared for every task moving in slow motion. I’m happy doing it and I know everything I do has a purpose but I wish I could make multiple ME’S to get more things done. The to-do list just seems to get longer lately. Which can leave me feeling down like I’m not accomplishing anything.

  I guess my lesson for today is keep your head up and don’t be your worst critic. Today I needed an attitude adjustment and I owned it myself. I mentally reminded myself that I will get there and if I wake up tomorrow I can try harder, focus more and get as much done as possible. Even though my to-do list keeps growing it also has been rewritten because of all the tasks that have been completed. I just keep focusing on how much I have done vs. how much there is still to do. I delegate my tasks evenly throughout the week and make sure to do those things. Keep moving forward, everyday, I will, I can, I must succeed.

Until next time,

Heather
