Summer is well and truly upon us, well nearly and everyone is busy making a plan to leave on various trips, they are even making plans for the fall, working on their bikini bodies or just plain working. I’ve been feeling quite strange lately. I’ve been trying to truly embrace my inner creative and dreamer. I’ve been working on some personal goals and trying to figure out what this blogging world is all about. To be completely honest with you, it hasn’t been too easy. I have been working on my “bikini body” and I do have plans for summer. I even have plans for the fall. However, none of this is truly satisfying and by that I mean that I’ve wanted to do more. I’ve been meaning to do something different and that “something different” hasn’t been all that easy to figure out. In some sense I think that that’s ok. It’s ok not to have your life 100% figured out. It’s ok not to have a well thought out and planned road map for very decision you are going to take. Planning is great, being busy is also great but you need to take the time out to reflect and just be sometimes. That’s what I’ve been doing a lot of and I think it’s going to be a good thing in the long run because I’m taking time to figure out my values in the midst of the rush of life.
The point of this very strange blog post is that I have a lot of fun projects that I would like to be working on this summer and I have some plans for the fall as well but in the end I’m going to be ok if everything doesn’t go completely to plan because life isn’t perfect. Something I do know, is that I will make sure whatever I’m busying myself with this summer or the next will go according to my values and what I feel is most important to me; in the end that’s all that matters. So if you’ve been feeling pressured by your friends or peers to have something brilliant on this summer and to have your whole life figured out. Don’t succumb to the pressure. Make sure that whatever you are doing is according to your personal values and that you take time to relax in the midst of all the business and planning for the future, to take a moment to read an interesting book and take a sip of a lovely cup of green tea.
