Coming Up for Air & Lookin' for Some Balance...
Tuesday, August 17, 2010
Just checking in and trying to find a Center. In the big picture everything is good and as it should be. I'm just extremely overwhelmed and at this point not able to remove anything from my list of responsibilities. So I'm taking a deep breath and coming for air...
I can only do what I can do. There is heavy feeling of being alone with this pressure, but I know that's not true and I'm trying to apply what I've learned about myself throughout my life as I go forward. Everything was always all or nothing, so each day I'm focusing the best I can on working on what's in front of me only, knockin' it out with balance.
Had a good workout at the pool on Sunday, got my 60 sit-ups in this morning. My eating is dialed in really tight and that feels good.
I have to remind myself that fear is a thief and that everything passes...so slow and steady with a never ending list it seems. I'm trying also to be more comfortable with life being a little messy and not all perfectly packaged. I'm hoping that today unfolds with some positive gifts, as I know that I'm a very lucky guy.
As I'm writing this now at 5:45am, I glanced out our sliding glass doors and saw an absolutely beautiful sunrise and that gets me a little closer to where I need to be...centered, at peace and calm.
I'm gonna do my best today!
Stay loose, Ryan
