We are all guilty of +biting off more than we can chew at some point in our lives, sometimes many times in our lives. At first, we think whatever is a great idea. In theory. But in practice we see it in a completely different light. And then what? Well, at that point we have a choice of bailing or seeing it through.
This is where I find myself. In theory signing up for all of this and more seemed like a good idea, even a great idea. And now that things are in full swing, I am wondering if that is true. I am tired and grouchy, or maybe those are more from lack of sleep and PMS (Yes, I said it, I went there).
And really what was I thinking, taking so much on? Juggling jobs, my company, packing and moving, and a social,life, and taking care of a house and….!! I was thinking that I must be Super Woman, able to handle 24 tasks in a half day…
But I think I might just stick it out of r a bit. Because success in life takes hard work, it takes late night sometimes and it takes perseverance. Whatever it is, you have to want it bad enough that failure is not an option. And that has been my motto since birth practically.
We have also heard that everything you want is on the other side of fear, and that you have to get out of your comfort zone because you cannot have an extraordinary life doing ordinary things. And I will never settle for ordinary.
Many times when things get busy it is because we are laying the groundwork for change and growth in our lives. And when that growth is coming, sometimes we must work furiously to make sure that the foundation can support it. But it is worth it. When we can sit back, rest and enjoy that foundation and growth. It is truly a magical moment when we see all we worked so hard for come to fruition.
And indeed, this is a time of tremendous growth in my life, and a strong foundation is needed. There are some things you can skip and skimp on in life but getting a firm foundation for growth and developments in your life is not one of those areas. So, take the time to make sure that everything is solid so that you don’t build a beautiful life on unsettled and unstable ground. You want to bui8ld what lasts, and that means the groundwork must be done first.
Change is coming, so biting off more than I can shew is not an option. Hard work is required to make dreams reality and so it is time to roll up my sleeves.
Life is short. If you find that you have bitten off more than you can chew, take a few steps back to evaluate if it is worth the work. If it’s not, walk away from some of it. If it is, then get to chewing, and maybe ask for help if needed. Building a beautiful life is worth the work.
