You asked…
Sooooo, I’ve been on this time management kick lately on my quest to make the most out of my 24 hours and attempt to be ultra-productive.
I’ve literally been tracking every move I make every breath I take and feeling like a dog chasing its own tail! This time of year is so busy for me. It’s controlled chaos that needs a little less chaos and A LOT more control!
My issue is, I’m a jumper. I jump from one project to the next and before I know it I’ve got a bazillion projects started and only a few finished. Then, I get overwhelmed and bury my head in a vat of wine until about a week before everything is due and then I’m like a crazy woman trying to get everything done last minute!
Some people call this procrastination.
My dr. calls it adult ADHD.
I call it fucking frustrating!
So, day 1 of chasing my own tail involved setting timers and journaling notes from 5am to about 3pm then my time management mojo said fuck this, I’m out. I seriously could not account for one more nanosecond of my life!
I ended this day with 10 hours of controlled chaos. Go me!
I have zero plans for the weekend and by zero I mean Z-E-R-O. I’m doing absolutely nothing. For the most part, I’m unplugging. I’ll get my blog posts in and visit all of you but my phone will be off and I will be spending many, many, many hours outside. My indoor time will be split between my headphones, great music and creating AND/OR silence, hot tea and a great book.
What about you?
Do you ever just unplug and chill?
What are YOUR plans for the weekend??
I hope you can do something spectacular and can make some spectacular memories. Spectacular memories are good for the soul.


I’m pretty sure I was one of those doing the offending in 2015 and to be honest,  2016 looks to be pretty much the same. I have absolutely no intention what-so-ever, of quieting my voice.
I will not zip it up, shut my pie hole or put a cork in it.
I will not be politically correct. I will attempt to gather accurate information on which to base my assessments of the world around me. Other times I will abandon all logic and sympathy and just let my rantin’ n’ ravin’ opinionated flag fly. It’s part of who I am. And in 2016, I will be A LOT more of who I am and a whole lot less of who everybody else wants or expects me to be.

Even more than before – if that’s possible.

Usually, I pick a word as my focal point of the New Year. This year I’ve chosen a phrase and three words. I know. I like to live dangerously..
My phrase is –
“Adjust your sails.”
A lot of 2015 was spent adjusting my sails. Looking at life from a different perspective. Accepting that my way is not the only way and that just because somebody doesn’t do something my way doesn’t mean that their way is wrong. Or just because they don’t think like me doesn’t mean they’re stupid.
Most of the time they are but not always.

My three words are faith, focus and discipline.
In 2015 I felt like I was in a physical, emotional and spiritual taffy-pull.
2016 will see me taking it down a notch.
I will keep my eye on the prize. Focus on my goals, discipline myself to stay the course and have faith that I am exactly where I need to be, doing exactly what needs to be done.
