The title of today’s entry explains the entire premise. Who are they? What is “it”?
Well, I’m about to tell you.
“They” are the people who seem capable of doing 100 things a day without looking exhausted. “They” actually seem to thrive when a million things are coming at them. I am not one of these “they” people. But I am sort of curious if there is a way to be kind of like them.
Not totally… because, let’s be honest. It takes a certain set of traits to be that kind of person, and I am starting to realize that I may not be one of them. That’s ok, but sometimes, I also suck at getting even one item checked off my to-do list.
Now, the “it.” I’ve sort of laid it out, but it is the idea of getting things done. Actually, it is more the idea of handling a busy schedule.
I tend to get burned out and discouraged rather easily. On the other hand, I am also very good at persevering through a lot more than people expect. So, I’m sort of both while also being neither?
I do try to be a person who gets a lot done. Hence why I am here at almost 2 A.M. writing this entry.
However, I almost blew this off. I almost decided, “Eh. I know you like writing this but you can’t waste time on things.”
Yeah, it’s weird. Doing things you like will never be a waste of time. But that warped brain of mine thinks that doing things I like must mean I’m not living right. And wouldn’t that be an absolute horror in the rat race of life…
So instead, I thought, if I can get more done… then maybe I will omit that guilt of doing the things I enjoy. Or heck, figure out how to make the things I enjoy part of the things I have to get done so that the things I have to get done become palatable actions.
Oh and I think I mentioned the hair oil yesterday… It worked so well. I had very few knots when I got home today and decided that even if I have to take a shower tomorrow, I am going to put that hair oil in again tonight. So I’m rocking my pigtail braids again to sleep. This might be my new look, 🙂
