The World Spins Too Fast

Seriously? I can’t keep up these days. I look up and it’s next week already. Every once in a while I’ll have a day that lasts forever, but, of course, those are the days that you WANT to be over quickly. Since the beginning of the year, my mind has been racing┬áconstantly to keep up with what’s going on at the moment. Forget thinking long term. I barely have a chance to plan what’s going on tonight. Next week? Not a chance.

The fact of the matter is that as much as I try, I can’t seem to slow down. Just when I think, “Oh, yeah, this weekend is just going to be about taking it easy,” a new job will come up or I agree to doing something else. I honestly can’t complain. I’ve been the busiest I’ve ever been in my life and it’s been a blessing. At the same time, I can’t help but think that I really need to slow down and take a look around at what I really want to do. Going to teach spin class in the am, then working all day, then going to a shoot at night or coming home and spending time editing or blogging – that has really become a “normal” day in my life. I just need to breathe. Again, I’m not complaining. I’m loving every minute of it, in all honesty. I just can’t help but think that I need to slow down and regain some composure. It’s been too long. I get caught up in the “if I’m not working, then I’m not moving forward” mentality. While I need to work hard to create this new path for myself, it can’t all be about work. There has to be some balance.

As I approach a very hectic weekend, here’s to a moment of attempting to calm myself. And breathe…deeply.

christy cropper I completely understand this! I go 100mph then crash for too long then i just crash. No bueno. I have so much to do and haven’t been sleeping much. I took a nap this afternoon and felt so guilty and pressured to be working that it wasn’t restful at all.

So, I guess in learning to balance everything we have to learn to slow down and regenerate.

I’m so excited for you and all the things you are doing right now! Also, I seriously want to come to your spin class :)

Ashley Goodwin I’m the exact same way! I always have so much going on that it scares me, and makes my friends mad I think. Thank heavens I can work on PHOTOGRAPHY during the day now and get back to having a life in the evenings! Now if I can only get this wedding planned….
