O is for Off Track

So, I derailed somewhere along the line and it is taking me a long time to get back on track with…well, with LIFE.  I don’t know what the heck is really going on, I just feel like everything is wonky and I need to make a number of changes and get things back to how they should be.

For me, one of the big signs that things aren’t quite right is that my bed isn’t made. I know it seems a small thing, but it’s one of the things that I can manage to do on a consistent basis, so when I am not doing it, I know that there is an issue.  It doesn’t necessarily mean that I can do anything about it, it’s just one of those things that I notice is a sign that things are not as they should be.

It’s not as easy as it might seem to get things back on track.  There are so many small pieces that fit together to make the big picture. I know that I need to get back to the decluttering and I need to get back to writing on a regular basis (and not just writing things for work, because I think that’s one of the things that’s killing me, I am only writing for work and it’s killed my creativity).

I also realize that a big part of what’s wrong has to do with boundaries and expectations. I have sortve let clients trample all over my boundaries and now I need to go back and set things up so that I can get back to being productive. I’ve let them chip away at my time and it’s negatively impacted my productivity.

I am hoping that the plan I’ve made for getting things back on track will work. I know it won’t be immediately perfect, but I need to make some progress.

So, maybe blog posts will get more consistent. But I know that it will take time.  Thanks to anyone who is still here for your patience.
