My Brain and Body Need To Start Working Together
There are times when I wish my brain would slow down so that my body could catch up. My brain seems to be firing on all cylinders just now but there is no time for my body to do all that my brain has thought of.
This weekend past I did a lot of writing for my book, I managed 5,000 words throughout the weekend. There was obviously some time out for Father’s Day and being a taxi for my daughter but all in all not a bad weekend.
The problem is, that this fabulous weekend of writing has left me with a weekends worth of housework still to be done. There are still articles to write for my local news site and an event to plan for the town.
It all seems relatively simple when I start. I shall write the book because I have the story in my brain and it needs to come out. I shall organise an event for the town because there has been very little for the community in the last few years. I shall ride my bike to enable me to pass my test as soon as possible. I shall write news articles to let people in the community know what is happening in the town and wider community. I shall do all the clothes washing so there is no longer a washing pile. I shall clear every work surface in the kitchen, tidy my desk and have a peaceful writing environment.
Can you guess what got done out of that list?
It seems to me that as I have reached midlife I seem to be taking on more and more. I seem to have an unending supply of ideas that will help my local community, help the environment, help others in general. The only downside is I don’t have the time to be able to do all these things that I am sure will be positive contributions.
I am meeting up with two friends tomorrow night who have offered to help with the organisation of the community event. Fingers crossed we will be able to sort out the majority of the requirements and share them out. Otherwise I may just have to bury my head in the sand and hope for the best.
