I need to re-orient myself in the next twenty-four hours. That is my goal.
In November, I had a really good set-up. I went to the gym regularly for most of the month. I got a ton of writing done. I quit my job and started a new one. I was headed in the right direction. Then, I crashed.
It seems like since then, I have been trying to orient myself in the right direction and failing. (I first wrote miserably and realized I am just not moving forward as fast). I need to take a step back and just try to hold my position for a moment and move forward.
My position is a good one. I post two blog posts a day. I have a novella in edits. I have a novella that I’m finish a draft on. I am still reading. I am working. Okay, so I am at a really good point overall. I just need to find tune this.
I want to finish my second novella this week. I want to finish edits on the first novella this week. I want to complete my third novella.
As I write this, I feel a bit like I’m building a mantra to actually help me finish these things. It’s an interesting feeling to say the least. I need to look at my heroes a bit closer and see how they do it. They fight crime, work jobs, have relationships, and still make time for social interactions. I feel like I spend so much time just losing time.
These twenty-four hours will get me situated right. I will finish one thing to Oxus on another. I will set up lists to get me going in the right direction and check things off the list once they’re finished. I will have some time to watch some television and review the episodes so that they all make it to my blog. I will stop putting things off. That’ll be the big one.
I am resolute. I make this a resolution today. I will get the things done before I go out tonight which will mean that I can actually have fun without any worries and tomorrow will truly be another day.
I think this is a good thing to do. Take a breath and just breath in the positive, and breath out the negative. Breath in reinforcement of the good things, and breathe out the horrible thins. I am setting myself up for success, and I know I can do this.
Write. Work. Fitness. Health. Edit. Read. Publish. These are the things that are going to make me a superhero. Maybe someday I will have the time and the position to add “Romance” or “Financial Stability” or maybe I’ll always be right where I’m at. One step at a time, one thing at a time. That’ll be what keeps me going. I am rambling more than usual, but I’m just trying to stay focused. I need to keep on in the right direction. That’ll be what makes me live the superhero life.
