The Little Things Add Up

January 14, 2012 ~ 09:44pm

A year ago today, I quit my job of over 6 years. In the 12 months following, so many things both positive and negative occurred that I can't honestly decide if it was a good year or a bad one. The only certainty is that it will forever influence my life.

When I think about any of the situations I faced last year, I realize that either I was ready or not. Everything I had done up to a certain point prepared me for it. This maybe obvious in a job scenario, but it applies equally well to health issues or personal matters. It really isn't an excuse for someone to say that they didn't have time to prepare. Every day we automatically prepare ourselves for tomorrow.

I don't have any advice or motivational message here. Just that when I pause and look back I know I'm glad I did do some things correctly and took care of myself. And when the situation was bleak, only then do I begin to see the negative things left to fester.

The little things, good or bad, they all add up.

No Time

"Post often" is what everyone says. "More content" others scream. In the background some chant "let's start a business". What about "you need to get out more" and "help out with the housework"?

Of all the things I could possibly want right now, the item at the top of my list is time. I contend that 24 hours in a day is just too little. I have a million ideas leaking out of my brain but never any oppertunity to develop them. And if I could, I'm so slow. So why am I so slow? Time, interruptions, responsibilities ... frustrations.

Sometimes there is no time for myself ... and now I wonder why I wasted the time typing this?

I'm Done

Well I'm finally done with majority of this site and there is still quite a bit left to do. It is the last day of May and I started almost on the first of March! Look around, there isn't much content yet. I'll add some soon.
