safieri: what a turkey would look like if you were on an acid trip (Default)

When trying to be productive, I've found that it's important to set a priority level for every task. I'm not so good at this outside of work but I'm trying to get better. By getting better, putting my personal life ahead of work sometimes. This isn't an easy thing to do. There's constantly a list of work things in the back of my head and I either consciously or subconsciously plan my days/weeks/months around that list. Hell, I tried to plan my wedding around it >.< Hubby was not pleased with that but we worked it out...for the most part.

I've been finding myself doing it again and I really need to quit it. Burning out and distancing myself from family and loved ones is NOT a good thing. My personal projects and labors of love have been falling to the wayside too. So! Today marks me resetting my priorities and putting my personal life higher on the list. Wish me luck!

I WILL get back into a regular update schedule! Back to the punishment game! *shudder* This is going to get painful, I know it. Pray for me....or not. Depending on if you enjoy reading updates on my stories or hearing/seeing me suffer from whatever sadistic penalty Argentroses inflicts upon my procrastinating soul. She can be very creative when she wants to be and she definitely wants to be in this case. Maybe that's what I need? Or maybe this will just end up catering to my masochistic tendencies.... This is way too much introspection for a quick post I felt I needed to make because I totally forgot to do them all through March. Bleargh!

I was doing so well! Updating regularly but then...BAM! Holiday sale! Okay okay, there was also Valentine's Day tossed in there but that was more inspiration for new smutty stories. ;) My husband's a sweetheart like that <3. Enough with the mush! I need to get back into a regular schedule writing...something. I don't like it when I'm not posting at the very least something here for the blog. Nothing to it but to do it, right?

This week is going to be busy too but we'll see what I can get going. Maybe something fun? I have some interesting ideas for writing exercises that I've talked about here before. It's a little rough going for the stories I've got going right now so maybe trying something different will get the juices flowing again. Something shorter where I don't have to worry about continuity...We'll see! Heaven knows I talk about doing a lot of stuff that I just flake off on. Flaky is only desirable in crusts!! Not people!! No more resembling crust!! ......And now I really want pie. Dammit! >.

Of all the skills I could have learned growing up, I think adaptability would have to be the most useful. Things rarely go exactly as planned in life and being able to change things up and go with the flow without freaking out too much will help you much more than long division. Unless you happen to use complex mathematics in your day to day tasks. If that's the case, it's much more helpful than knowing what year Columbus sailed the ocean blue (1492).

This opinion is reinforced every time I watch a particular friend LOSE THEIR EVER LOVING SHIT. It happens almost every other day. Whenever some hurdle pops up, they fall to pieces. Now I don't claim to be some solid rock that stands up to everything and never wavers (trust me, that's not the case at all) but not every problem is worthy of a meltdown. Car trouble is horrible but hey, you're somewhere safe and not stranded on the side of the road. Having problems at work isn't ideal but if your boss is actively helping you improve, that's a blessing you should be taking full advantage of. Take a breath, hold it, let it out, and keep going. Because life isn't going to stop just because you're having trouble dealing with it. It's kind of a bitch like that. Aaaand that's all I have for today. Peace and take some time to sit back and chill.

Some days I feel like I know what I'm doing. That everything is falling into place. Then I usually get thrown a curveball and I have to reassess my life all over again. Am I really doing what I should be doing? Could I be happier in a different position? Indecision isn't necessarily a bad thing. Being content where you are isn't necessarily a good thing. Indecision and discontent can lead you to push yourself for something better. It can give you the motivation for advancement in many avenues of your life. Conversely, it can also cause you to be ungrateful for what you have and view it in a skewed, jaded light. It can cause you to throw away a good thing on a whim and make your circumstances turn for the worse.

The breakdown of all that? Fucked if you do and fucked if you don't. Poetic, aren't I? There's no way of telling which way you should go, it's all a crapshoot. Take a chance and potentially it can lead you to something better or you can play it safe and go with the status quo. The tried and true. Even that can change with the tides, though (I've been writing too much Favorite Form, the next parts are going to be rather...aquatic). Was there a point to this ramble? Not really. The tag said musing so I was just musing and typing whatever came to mind! You're welcome.
