Do you feel this way too? Life ain’t always a "Piece of Cake."


Well, hello.

First and foremost may I say, I’m NOT saying “I’m back!”

I am tired of patterns of being active and not being active. I am tired of searching “blog post ideas” for writing inspiration instead of listening to what’s on my mind.

You need to make time for the things you love, which I have been neglecting.

So here I am,

at 5 a.m.,

eyes half-opened,

making time for something I love.

A lot has happened since the last time I blogged, (We can get into finer details at a later time) so for now, let me catch you up to speed.

I cannot believe it’s been almost 5 months since I have last blogged. Seeing that was a serious wake-up call. It spiraled me into a chain of when-was-the-last-time thoughts.

When was the last time I danced?

When was the last time I made art for fun?

I’ve been trying to get to a yoga class for the last two months. When will I make it?

Are you starting to think of your when-was-the-last-time’s?

Good.

Let the blog post commence.

 

And boy, as a true Capricorn, I adore routine:

Wake up.

Coffee.

Get Dressed.

Office.

Nap.

Waitress.

Go home/my boyfriends.

Sleep.

Repeat.


My schedule is basically 8-2 at the office and then 4-Close waitressing, so as you can assume, most of [all of] my days consist of a mindless rotation of my routine.

But as I got deeper, embedding this into my daily life, I noticed that I was neglecting time for myself and even neglecting some responsibilities. Instead of cleaning out my car or catching up with a friend, I usually crawl right into bed as I fear being tired the next day for work. I count down each day until the weekend, however when it arrives, It’s oftentimes being spend catching up on errands I’ve been putting off, making time for family I haven’t made enough time for, trying to squeeze in plans with my friends so they don't forget me... Then, the weekend ends up being more exhausting that the weekdays.

Does anyone else feel this way?
