The second reason is that, well, I need a break. The only things on my mind lately have been work work work work work work work and how to better myself when all I'm doing is working and not having time to live. And the last thing I want this blog to turn into is a blog about work. So, I've just had to keep reminding myself to breathe...
I know that for the next month or two, work is going to dominate my life. Then, slowly but surely, as the peak surf season starts to dwindle away, balance will start to creep back in. For now, it's one step at a time as I continue to embrace what good and joyful things I do have until there will be time for more.
Each day I've been:
+ Enjoying my green juice that I can't go a day without!
+ Unwinding a little bit earlier in bed.
+ Looking out at the deep blue Pacific as it glistens in the sun.
+ Remembering Mom.
+ Reminding myself that life is bigger than any temporary struggle.
+ Reading The Daily Love.
Speaking of The Daily Love, this message from Mastin yesterday was just what I needed. So, let's end with:
"If you’re feeling overwhelmed, take a step back and breathe. Don’t try to solve everything all at once. Instead, just take the next step. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed by our dreams and all the things that “have to” happen, that we never start. One step forward is better than none. Persistence pays over time. Take one step a day and pretty soon you’re well on your way." - Mastin Kipp
