The Longest Short Day Ever

How can a day seem so long, but also feel way too short?  There’s just so much to do! 

This new year I have made myself a lot of goals.  This blog and writing every day have been some of my biggest goals. Returning to the writer’s group and perhaps joining a few other groups is another. 

Unrelated to writing, I’ve also put some health goals down as well, including a new commitment with my mom and my sister to walk at least 2 miles a day at least 3 days a week.  They are going to London and to Paris in a few months and need to get in walking shape for all their grand adventures.  While I am ridiculously jealous of the trip (Oh my goodness, London!), I am happy to share their commitment. 

So I’ve begun walking almost every night.   I’ve managed to find a way to maximize that time however.  I am using my treadmill time to catch up on episodes of Sherlock (with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman going all around London).  Alas this will be the closest I get to London for awhile.  It sure is fun though!

I must say with my writing, blogging and walking goals, I’m finding it difficult to cram all of that into my already full life.  I work a full time job that comes with a very long commute and then have a busy family life.  Lately I’m finding that I wish I had about two or three more hours to do all the things I want, but then am also finding that I am more than ready to call it a day.  It seems an odd juxtaposition. 

Despite the feeling of not having enough time, I start each new day excited about the goals I’ve set, the direction I am heading because of them and I do my best to be grateful for every moment of this busy life.

  1. I am telling you I was sent to that group for a reason. We are going to have so much to talk about! And London! What I wouldn’t give for that trip! That’s also one of my goals. Well, to live there one day anyway. As for the walking, good for you! Again, we’ll talk. Maybe go out for something afterwards if you can. My email is listed on my site. Email me and I’ll give you my number.
