Do you ever feel like you’re completely off track? Disorganized, scattered, flighty, and just plain not with it?
Yeah. That’s me right now.
The (only) good part of living in a city I loathed is that I was on top of things. I worked out like an Olympian. I cooked like Emeril. I managed my financial life like a CPA.
Because there was absolutely nothing else to do. And I was SO. SO. SO. BORED. And miserable.
Fast forward six months, I’m happy again. But I’m so happy that I’m all over the place.
Just call me Tinkerbelle. With ADHD.
I’ve been soaking up city life so much: meeting friends every night, enjoying all the restaurants I’ve missed, and sometimes even just driving around taking in the beautiful city streets I’ve missed.
But it distracts me.
I’m not doing badly. I just feel like I’ve lost sight of some of the things I realized must be health priorities during my period in social purgatory. I feel like I’ve lost sight of other things I enjoy- blogging as an example- during my frantic OMG OMG PEOPLE! And things to do! And places to see!
So now… I need to find a balance. A routine.
And that, my friends, is easier said than done.
I am very selfish right now about my time. For the past two years, I spent time either by myself or with people that I just didn’t click with. So while I know that it’s supremely important for my health to eat right, work out, and get good sleep…I’m in a rut where I’m just not willing to miss a single dinner, happy hour, trivia night, you name it.
I’m not sure how to get out of it.
I realize that this may sound depressed. I am not. I’m actually very happy, just a little concerned as I’m trying to fit every piece of this in. I know exercising and eating in a specific way is critical to my health. And I’m just not sure how to balance it all right now.
