The truth is that taking the time to be still and reflective actually increases productivity and gives more joy to what you’re doing when it’s time to take action again.”
― Maria Erving
Hey everyone 🙂
I really hope everyone had a great week. Although it’s been all ugly and rainy (which I personally hate) in the Bay Area, we need it. Perfect time to Netflix and chill or sleep L.O.L. This month went by so incredibly fast! I can’t believe that in three days it will be November 1st. I am excited, because that means Thanksgiving… Christmas… MY BIRTHDAY and then 2017. 2016 was such a joke to me like I honestly made some of my dumbest decisions and wasted a lot of time this year. However, I am determined to make bigger and better moves and lifestyle changes in 2017. It just has to be done in order to redeem myself.
October drained me physically and mentally. Therefore, I have decided to take a break as far as hanging out with people and dilly dallying. I have had so many sleepless nights, because of pointless things. I could see if I was being productive when I loose sleep, but no, most of the time losing sleep has came from getting lost in conversation and laughter. I am the kind of person who functions terribly without sleep. If I don’t get at least 7 hours, my day drags, I am not productive and I just feel crappy overall. That is why I will make it a #1 priority to get a full eight hours from now on. No point in being up if I’m not thinking of ways to get ahead in life. I will save the dilly dallying for the weekend.
Speaking of the weekend, tomorrow I leave for San Diego to celebrate Halloween! I am super excited. I have my Halloween costume, my hair is done and yesterday I went and got a much needed manicure and pedicure. I have no idea what my weekend will be like. I know that I am going to a Halloween Party on Saturday night, but besides that I have no idea what else we are getting into. Regardless, I am happy to be getting out of the Bay Area for a couple days. When all you do is work and run around like a chicken with your head cut off, simply being in the same area becomes exhausting.
When I come back on Halloween, I will get my last dilly dallying out before I become focused. I haven’t been able to blog much, because I have been out and about constantly this month. Running from job to job… to party to event… from store to house…can’t do it anymore. I hope that no one gets upset at me for curving them. I am just realizing that I cant do it all. As much as I am a people pleaser, I am going to have to slow my roll for my well being. Of course I will still be texting and accepting phone calls, but as far as driving and going places after working 8 or 12 hour days, that’s out.
November is the month to focus on me and relaxation. I made enough money this month to be able to take it easy in November. But oh best believe in December I am back to being a workaholic. Got to be able to buy gifts and of course turn up for my birthday. Everyone have a good weekend and be safe. I will be posting pictures from this weekend 🙂
