Happy Easter! Hope you’ve taken the time to unwind and relax!
Remember my post about freedom a couple months back? I wrote that I really miss routines in my life because I really didn’t have any due to traveling, and that I would really want to work in a normal 9-17 job. Well I found my first job in Sydney last week and finally started working on Wednesday! I’m super excited because I get to meet new people, learn new things and have a routine in my life (and of course regular income). But at the same time I’m also horrified, because as I said before, I’ll certainly miss all my free time 😀
I know I’m the kind of person who needs routines in order to stay active and ambitious. I wouldn’t like to admit this but when I don’t have anything I have to do, I get lazy and a bit too comfortable. You could almost say that I just start drifting. And I’m always very aware of it.
Some people say they work better under pressure/stress and I guess I’m one of them. Maybe because when someone’s stressed, they need to use their willpower more than normally in order to achieve their goals. And I sure as hell have a lot of willpower in me. But then it all just disappears when life is easy and I have nothing to stress about.
I’ve always been very fascinated about golden middle way but I’ve also come to realise that there just might not be such thing. In my case it’s just more about bouncing between the two extremes. At the moment, after a long holiday, I’m in a position where I miss the very ambitious me who wants to achieve things and set new goals. And I certainly think that having a routine in my life will help me get there.
It almost feels like summer’s over and I’m going back to school. You remember the feeling when you were a kid and got a new pencil case, backpack and calendar for the year and could barely hold your excitement? I’m that kid now! I want to write down all my goals for the next weeks, months and years and actually start working for them. The first thing on my list is to get rid of all these Easter chocolates and create a workout/yoga plan for the upcoming weeks 😀
