Good morning, sunshine.
You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are.
– Fred Rogers
I’ve been struggling with this for quite some time now, to be completely honest. Simply put, we are spoilt for choice these days. And incredibly so at that. Because in this fast-paced, content-rich world, choices are everywhere and the possibilities are endless. And whilst I do agree it’s a fantastic thing of which I’m very thankful for, it can be a bit of a double-edged sword at times when things aren’t kept organised (guilty) and it can get very overwhelming. The dilemma is that with all these abundant choices around, we don’t actually know what we want in the end. And if we do know, the dilemma then shifts to choices, priorities, and time management. Well, for me anyway.
The thing is, there’s so much I want to do with my life, let alone in my early twenties. And the hardest lesson I had (have?) to learn was to make choices with my time. Because I’m the sort of person who wants to do everything at one go – I’ve developed a very strong sense of urgency after realising that in order to do all that I want to do in this life, I would have to start now and chase in hot pursuit after a number of years of crucial self-discovery. I’m very much your Type A goal-driven, can-be-a-bit-of-a-workaholic personality, although I do possess some Type B traits but that’s entirely another story. Ideally, I’d like to think I’m all-encompassing and invincible and ––
–– please allow me my glory because it’s Sunday. Digressing.
I’ve established that I desperately need to keep very, very organised and have a workable system going (which also has allowances for spontaneity and impromptu goodness) in order to survive and flourish in this possibly very wonderful voyage. And I would also need a formidable support system – which I already have, thank goodness for those jewels – to be my Grecian pillars of strength. And last but definitely not least, I would require a beautiful workspace to keep me inspired.
I’m in the midst of redoing mine up and I’ll write a separate post on that once I’m done, so in the meantime,
Just a few to tickle your (and my) tastebuds on a beautiful Sunday morning. Bisous.
