Living Your Life

Do you ever find yourself saying things like “once this is settled, I’ll travel more”, or “I’ll take that class when this thing is done” or anything that seems to push off doing something enjoyable now because you have things going on in your life can range from completely demanding to awfully concerning? I know that I do, and I am coming to realize that while it is ok to just roll into bed and watch The Real Housewives until you have to start over again the next day during challenging times, it isn’t the best long-term coping mechanism.
This past year has taught me a lot about that notion. Definitely a Development Area for me, but I really feel that I am getting better at the whole thing. Where I might have postponed a vacation or skipped a show that I wanted to see, I lately find myself saying “f*** that…doing this will not change anything that is going on in my life right now (yes…provided I am on top if it…I am still me). Not doing it, is actually keeping me from living my life. So, I do it. And if you sometimes find yourself in that position, as we all do from time to time, I suggest you consider same.
