Drawing a blank...
I have all these wonderful thoughts and ideas throughout the day that I think, Oh, that would be great to write about in my blog. These thoughts and ideas are deep and philosophical and I am proud of them! However, when the kids and dog are fed and everyone has had their vitamins and brushed their teeth and are finally in bed....when the house is quiet and all I can hear is the water moving through the filter in the fish tank...my mind goes blank. I sit here at my computer and cannot put two thoughtful sentences together!
This is my confession for the week...
I am working through a correspondence course that is a 4 year program. I am on year one still and I have been at it for 3 years! It is just ridiculous and I am so ashamed for having let it get this out of hand. I guess I always thought that there would be time...after the kids go back to school....then, after Halloween...then... after Thanksgiving...you get the picture. I realized recently that the only way my school work will get done is if I make it happen and specifically carve out time for it. I feel like I am hanging on by a thread right now and the longer it takes me to get assignments turned in the more I feel like my goal of becoming a homeopath is fading away. When it comes to school work I am a perfectionist and therefore each assignment takes me a long time to get it just "perfect". I am sure my tutor would be happy with half of the effort I put into my work but I just don't seem to be able to stop at "just good enough". In fact I am not even sure what "just good enough" is.
My sister keeps telling me that I have to set a time to study and let everyone know when my study hours are so that they know not to call or come by at that time. She says that I am not even to pick up the phone when it rings unless it is the school. I took her advice this week. I decided that I would study from 9:30am to 11:30am everyday. Monday I started studying at 9:30am and couldn't stop. When my son came home from school at 2:45pm I was still at my computer and the dishes weren't done, the laundry was still piled up and the pantry was bare! I told my sister that the pendulum had swung all they way in the other direction! Tuesday, I thought I would try to learn from Monday's mistakes and balance my life. I did well and Wednesday went well too. So I think I might be on my way to a balanced life and a license to practice Homeopathy!
Lets see what tomorrow brings!
