It has been exactly 19 days since I left my job. I have done more for my career in 19 days then I did in the entire year of 2013. I am not suggesting to anyone to leave their jobs. I actually commend people who can juggle a career, job, husband, and kids all at once. My extreme case of adult A.D.D. limits my juggling capabilities. Like they say, “God only gives you as much as you can handle”, let me tell you that is the truth!
Before I left my job I had this perfectly mapped out action plan of all the things that I would be executing on a daily basis, and although I have been doing what I said I would I am all over the place. Lets start with the fact that I am a raging insomniac! I greet the sun 5 out of 7 mornings a week. Therefore if I am getting to bed at 7:30am because I was up all night working. That means I am not starting my actual day until like 10 or 11 o’clock – that is almost noon. This really sucks because I miss all the early morning gym classes. Never-mind the fact that my nutritionist said I should be eating breakfast everyday, that is very hard to do when I am getting up at lunch time.
This is my challenge, I have to create a schedule for myself that I follow like a job. I need to do something that works for me though. I can’t set the start-up of my day at 8:30am. Realistically 8am is not my best hour. One thing I know is the only way this leaving my job venture is going to work is if I can create and maintain a consistent schedule. So that is what I am working on today because starting tomorrow I will be following my new work week. I’m calling it, The routine of happiness. I know that being inconsistent has been one of my weaknesses in the past but as a part of my being a better me promise to myself, I am going to work on that inconsistent muscle until it has a memory all of its own and I become the Queen of Consistency!
Wish me blessings!
