Irony can be pretty ironic...

Hey guys...this is my 300th post.
Just stopping in to say I won't be stopping in till Thursday.
I have to get my stuff organized.
that starts now.
I made myself a promise that I would have my stuff together by March 31rst.
I don't intend to let myself down.
I am tired of being perpetually behind the curve.
I have thrown everything I have at this weight loss thing for over 10 months now.
I have no intention of quitting.
But I do have an intention of grabbing the frayed ends of my life and either weaving them in, or singeing them off.
I am going to do this as quickly as possible.
I need a schedule.
I need to have a direction for my life.
I have pared down and gotten rid of a lot of things.
Now it's time to start putting in things that I love.
As someone once said...don't know who....
You can't ride two horses with one @ss.
So I need to make a decision about the direction of my life in regards to my art, and some of my other interests.
I need to pick a horse, commit to it and ride it.
Hugs to all of you.
See you on Friday.
Chris

I am exactly in the same place right now. I can't chew gum and walk at the same time...it's pretty sad. lol. Let me know if you figure out how to do it. I'd love some ideas on how to start adding other things in. Good luck Chris. You're knocking the weight loss thing out of the park...I'm sure the routine thing will be the same. :) ((hugs))

It's great that you are taking the time to see what direction that you need to go in. I think it's a very smart thing to do. I've never heard someone put it the way you did...weave them in or singe them off. That's hardcore.

We'll still be here. :)
Good luck.

I know what you mean. It's funny how things can get out of control. You only have time for so much and eventually some things have to go. That goes for stuff, too. Eventually, some things have to go. You stretch yourself too thin and you end up doing everything half-assed. It's better to just stop on the things that don't serve you anymore and commit wholeheartedly to the things that do. It can be tough. I have a hard time letting go of things...even things that no longer are really helping. Sometimes I need someone to smack me upside the head and say, "Why are you still doing this? It is not doing you any good? It may have been helpful a LONG time ago, but no more." And then the lightbulb comes on. Oh yeah... I see what you mean.

So, organize and we'll see you when you come back.

I was feeling the same way today, Chris. I'm proud of how far I've come, but I wondered what if I put the same energy into other aspects of my life. I would be unstoppable! So that's what I'm working on. Thanks for this!

Go for it! Filling yourself with things you love is the best motivation there is. I find. :) Glad to see you at this point. Yaay for you.

You have such determination Chris that I don't think you will have any trouble choosing the right path. See you on the flipside :-D

Chris, When I was filled with fear, it turned out it wasn't just fear of being thin, it was fear of living the life I was meant to live, a life that included trying things that weren't so safe to my fearful little heart. Like you and your art, I always wanted to write.

But you've got it exactly, just like you walked forward, literally one footstep at a time, you have to do the same thing with the other areas of your life. Can't wait to hear about it!

Quite a milestone - 300 posts! And blessings on your break as you assess and make decisions for the "next leg" of your journey. You're an inspiration to me and many others!
