Never Enough Time
Lately it seems as though I never have enough time. We all know that there are 24 hours in a day but I simply need more of the stuff. I am trying to fix that work/life/play balance but I fear my friends are falling by the wayside luckily, while I have an understanding and supportive bunch I just wish I could be better, more reliable but things come up and I simply have to believe that it’ll get better soon.never enough time
I never shared this outside of my inner circle when I was going through it but in my final year of university, I developed chronic gastritis caused by stress and frankly while I hadn’t realised I was stressed but it seems my body did. I kept getting stabbing pains in my stomach during one episode my tutor sent me home in a cab and refused to let me drive myself home lol – drama thy middle name is ‘Ngoni’. Since then and also after getting super lethargic in early January there are certain things I no longer compromise on if I’m to work so darn hard. Regardless of how busy I am or my schedule 90% of the time I will religiously make time to workout (running, yoga, weights) five times a week, to eat well and pray/meditate first thing in the morning, to call up my mentors when I start to derail and neglected but beloved friends aside I feel amazing, strong and capable – Ideal when my daily schedule changes so muc, have all the control but also none of the control and I have to manage and put out several fires.
This new (to me) way of life has lead to a happier me and there is nothing I value more than personal happiness. If I’m about to do something I will always ask myself will this make me happy? Will it make me happy down the line? Is it worth it? And if the answer is no then it goes into the trash. Simple is as simple does hombres!
While I speak as a young woman running her own label much of this applies to you too whether you’re self-employed or working for someone.
Oh … Happy New Year Peeps lol.
