It’s Not All Butterflies And Rainbows

Some days suck! They really do.

Forget about the plight of burnout, sometimes life throws circumstances at you that steal away built up momentum.

That’s exactly what happened these last 3 days. I’m sitting here, typing this right now after having a busy day that is completely unrelated to my goals.

I’m frustrated but a huge part of me is learning the true meaning of life and what it takes to build a career.

Nothing important in life is accomplished in a straight path. Everything meaningful goes through highs and lows. I’d go so far as to compare it to a zig zag line.

I took care of a sick family member today whilst handling all the chores and responsibilities that come with keeping a household running. Couple that with the desire to just sleep and you have the perfect recipe for frustration. Weirdly enough, even with the lack of inspiration and energy, I managed to write a 1000 words. It’s nowhere near to being my best day but I appreciate the fact that I tried and made an attempt.

It may not be enough but it’s a step forward from yesterday and for as long as I’m always a step forward compared to where I was the previous day, I can be happy.

Success is clearly full of challenges and hurdles. If you love what you do, the misery experienced will be different than normal misery. I’m working on an explanation but until then, let’s just leave it at that.

The year has just begun. We can make 2017 a great year! I know we can. Hang in there and keep working.

Not Much Writing Done Today

It looks like I’m human after all and burnout is a reality. Damn. I’m not beating myself up too much about it because there’s not many excuses I’m making for not getting a lot of work done today.

It was hot and I was lazy. As upsetting as that is to me, I think the best thing would be to work later tonight to catch up. Sure, I could start fresh tomorrow morning but I don’t want to take the chance of falling off the bandwagon.

When trying to build habits, you know how important it is to be consistent. That’s why I’ll make a fair attempt to write for about 2 hours tonight before sleeping.

The weekend was pretty damn good. I actually worked -_- and that’s probably resulted in the laziness that cloaked itself around my mind and body today. Wait, let me stop myself right there. No excuses!

I do hope you had a fantastic weekend. I managed to get out of the house on Saturday and Sunday. We watched a movie as well as indulged in some spicy fries :p It was a good weekend for me!

Let me know what you got up to.
