I had initially written this post on some scrap paper, with this funky pencil I found at Michael's. Turns out, yellow, even when marbled with a bunch of colors, is still painful to read on a computer! So, here is the non-eye bleeding version. :D
I was thinking to myself about my next blog post. What should I be focusing on? Content, personal stuff, things I find inspiring?
I found myself inside my head. I have had so many ideas, stories, and generally inspiring thoughts, all I could see clearly was how overwhelming all of that can be.
So, I took a breath, backed up, and looked at my ideas one by one. Looked at my general priorities, and made what now is, and will remain, a working "list in progress" of things I want to do, highest priority first. I know that as long as I have this list, somewhere out in the open that I can see, I will know what goal I am working towards. And, since it is a list in progress, if I find myself thinking that I need to re-organize, add, or skip a project that I don't feel inspired to work on, I have already given myself control in this new system I have set up.
I know that by giving myself this freedom, I am more likely to actively track and use this list as a guideline of what *I* want, and what I feel is important to do.
I know being stuck in a funk can take its toll on you. Although this is a simple solution, I hope that someone can adapt these ideas into your own future planning.
Thank you for reading!
