Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Everything Cracks When There is Too Much Pressure

I recently received an email from a reader asking why I wasn’t writing as much to my Blog as I one time had been. I suppose it’s a multitude of things all combined, but I really do enjoy writing, it’s time that isn’t on my side these days. It all comes down to prioritizing my life. My main focus these days are on getting my life in order and trying to lose weight and get myself healthy. That in itself takes up at least one to two hours or more a day. Then along with that I like to allow myself about fifteen minutes to a half hour a day to read. I have laundry, and pets to take care of. Along with all those chores there is also my trying to fit in time with family and friends and just plain relaxation. Now I suppose we must also add to that the facts about my being exhausted by the time I get home. Work has been extremely busy and stressful as of late. Lets face it most of the time my blogging is done after I get home. Right now when I get home I try to get laundry done or cleaning done along with feeding my pets and walking my dog and getting some stationary bike time or WII exercise time in. So by the time my rear end meets the sofa I am usually beyond exhausted and the mind doesn’t want to think let alone my hands do the typing. Mindless or mind numbing tasks are about all I can muster and then I usually end up falling asleep on the sofa. So it all comes down to priorities. I have my life on a five year plan to get where I want to be. Along with anything else in life there is a system of give and take. A friend of mine one time wrote a poem, that I still have, which he titled “Something’s Got to Give”. At the time I was a teenager and I had all kinds of time and all kinds of energy so I didn’t quiet get the concept of it. Let me tell you I do now. I understand exactly. There are so many things I need to do and so little time. So I do love writing and I hope to get more time to do more of it in the near future, but right now my priority is me. Selfish sounding isn’t it? It is the way I have to do it for now though. I need to be in better physical shape so I can enjoy my life. That is something I put off way to long and way too much time was lost. So I will be writing and I will try to do it more often, but if you were wondering what is up with me, it’s not so much what is up, but what is coming off and that is the pounds. I suppose I could get a recorder and dictate my Blog while I walk. Shoot I have often thought of good articles while walking. My mind wears down though and I don’t have pen in hand so until I figure it out. I will just invite you all to walk with me on my journey by actually walking or staying tuned for station identification. I will keep writing, just maybe not as often as some would like.

personally i find the walk now days exhausting. i been taking mine for the last few days. and when i get home i pass out. all it does is reenforce in me that i need it more. today we walked inside a mall. i feel i dont get the complete excersise experiance that i would get outside, but at least i am moving.

i feel better that i dont feel alone in where the heck does all my time go.
