“What am I doing with my Life?”

The question that has plagued me lately. The question that plagues many. What am I even doing? What have I created? What have I spent my time on?

In essence one is attempting to reconcile with themselves that they have been doing more than sit there and watch videos of cats while working a 9 to 5 job. Or not working at all. Perhaps one might be in school, wondering if they’re doing it for themselves or somebody else.

What am I doing with my life?

As many of you who follow this blog may have noticed, I had disappeared. I had gotten disheartened and basically quit and fell off the face of the planet. Not a good idea, but it happens. The problem had to do with my meditation project.

Upon further reflection here is what went wrong:
1. Funding (Jewel cases and printed on CD’s run a bit of a sum…)
2. Time Limit Too Extreme
3. Unrealistic Expectations
4. Started for the wrong reasons. (Though it’s still a good idea and has many good reasons, the first one was wrong so therefore it made the project less valuable to me.)
5. “Lol how does one even market?”

I had an anxiety attack because I was failing and am guilty of epitomizing the Anxiety
/Avoidance Paradigm. However, I kept a good chunk of my notes and other things I was working on because of three key reasons. They show me I tried something. They allow me to reflect and learn. They can be used later.

As you see, I’ve come back. Am I going to try exactly what I did before? No. Because I recognize that at least at this time it is not a good thing for me to do.

I’m moving to another state, out of my parents house, away from a lot of the people I care about, away from all the drama and anxiety I could do without. It’s made me think a lot and that big question came up of what am I going to do there? I literally have free reign to do whatever I want. (Within the constrains of money, anyways.) These opportunities rarely happen.

On that note, I have a couple ideas of things I could potentially start work on, at a slow and comfortable rate, and maybe choose to focus on one later on.
1. Creating a workable concept for a kitten purrs energy harnesser. (And similar unique energy sources.)
2. Stop worrying about the controversy of my “face reading” and actually write a book or start a website about it that’s based in at least some psychology. (Maybe I should call it the sherlock effect.)
3. Write a fiction book. Just finish one. (Already have like a million ideas…)
4. Create a poetry collection to sell on Amazon. (With or without some of the poetry from my deviantart.)
5. Work on things relating to elance. (The freelancing site.)

I hope you all have a super grand day today and remember that even if you fail at something, it doesn’t mean you’ll fail at everything. Find your niche.

A Late Wakeup, A Relaxing Morning

Most people, when they wake up late, get very stressed. Normally because they have somewhere to be or have to do something by a certain deadline.

But have you ever woken up late when you haven’t had to be anywhere or so anything?

The difference is huge. Some people still freak out, but they should really take the opportunity to relax in that kind of situation. Your body has gotten more of the sleep it requires. You don’t need to rush. The sun is shining in through the window…

It’s a wonderful opportunity to let yourself relax. Take that time, that moment, to think about all the wonderful things in your life. Let yourself be grateful for the rest you’ve received.

Then allow yourself a great morning.

Questions time 🙂

1. What are you excited about today?
I’m super excited about brainstorming ideas for my Poetic Meditations. I have a renewed enjoyment for the work that I am doing.

2. What are you grateful for today?
I’m actually really grateful for the opportunity to experience the morning as I have today. It’s just been really amazing.

3. What are you absolutely going to do today?
Today I am going to brainstorm ideas for my meditations, start reading a book I’ll be giving somebody feedback on, and I will work more on the weekly goals.

With that comes my little list:
1. Interact on Facebook as the professional page.
2. Start the book
3. Work on the weekly goal
4. Brainstorm Poetic Meditation Ideas
5. Connect Personal Sites with Google+

Have a Great Day!

Shave the Cat

Hello!
You’ll notice this is posted a little later than usual… Well, and I didn’t post yesterday, but yeaterday was Oscars day…

Anyways, today I let myself officially get out of bed an hour late and not exercise because I’m not doing the best due to mother nature… and then guys, I decide to shave the cat. We have four cats at my house and one of them is super fuzzy and constantly getting mats.

Everyone was always talking about how they were going to shave her but nobody actually did it. So I took the clippers and brought her to the bathroom.

I haven’t actually finished, but the clippers were getting too warm so her and I are taking a break.

I bring this up because a lot of times people have things that they keep saying they’re going to do and it will never get done unless someone takes the initiative to actually do it. That’s right guys, I want you to shave your cat, or do whatever task you have been putting off for days and days that really ought to get done.

Oil change? Get it done. Sorting your mail? Get it done. Getting rid of bad food from the fridge? Do it. Washing the dishes? Get it done before stuff starts growing! Sheesh!

Also, in regards to my laptop… Well. I wish there were better news. Guys, I am going to be without a laptop until I can afford one.

Luckily for me, we have a very old windows computer that just kind of sits and gathers dust. It has microsoft word, windows movie maker, and I can install audacity. Yes, those are my tools of the trade for now.

What’s your excuse?

On to the questions!
1. What am I excited for today?
Probably trying to get that old dusty thing a figurative oil change! Meaning I’ll defrag and virus scan and add audacity, and that kind of stuff. We’ll see how fast I can make it go with very little in the way of knowledge or time 🙂

2. What am I grateful for?
My friend, Tim, for trying to help fix my laptop. The old computer with everything I need. And also, my ability to choose to just spend an hour in bed when I absolutely need it.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
So you all are used to me overshooting, but today my goals are pretty simplific. Take care of the computer, work on my weekly goal scripts, and do some research for my product.

So my little do list involves the following:
1. Scripts
2. Research
3. Lunch
4. Video lessons
5. Respond to important emails

You’re all awesome!
