I should be doing a few things right now, and blogging isn't one of them. Yet here I am, sitting in my hotel room, avoiding everything that I should be doing.
I am in New Orleans with a few thousand other Beachbody coaches, including my really wonderful friends who are sharing a room with me (don't worry, it's a suite so I am not keeping them awake). This is my third Summit and each time I walk away with so many ideas buzzing around in my head. This year will be no different.
Today we went to a training called The Power of I Am and it was pretty freaking fantastic. The speakers shared their experience on so many different subjects and most of them did so in a way that totally made sense to me. Friday and Saturday will be very similar in the sense that we have two more full days of general session and topic specific sessions.
But my mind is a very funny place to hang out. As I am looking at Beachbody and all the really cool, exciting things coming, I am thinking about my grad classes that need to be finished in the next few days. I am thinking about my other business avenues that have manifested themselves. I am thinking about logos and branding. I am thinking about summer schedules and personal development.
I. Am. Thinking. All. The. Time.
And it is exhausting.
This is why it is 11:30 and I am still up. I have (sort of) watched a movie with my friends, worked on one of my final projects, created a logo with tag line, added to a photo album for a project I'm working on with some friends, and a few other things.
The really sad thing is, I haven't been productive in the areas I need to focus - re: grad work. =(
I wish that I had something profound to say and that by the end of this sentence I managed to figure out exactly what my purpose is.....alas, there is no magical answer. I am still a hot mess of chaos that seems to barely be holding her ish together but somehow manages to get (some of) that ish done.
My eyes are starting to droop. Maybe morning will give me some clarity. Who knows. I sure as hell don't.
There is one thing that I really struggle to get behind...mornings.
I love my sleep and from previous posts you have probably figured out that I am not very good at it. Help is coming, but until then I really do not like being up early. Not even a little.
But I have to admit, there are some perks.
Most mornings Doctor Who is on from 7-11am. Yes, I know that much tv is not a key element to a productive day, but I love Doctor Who so leave me alone. Unfortunately when Zero the Wonder Dog decided to get up this morning, BBCAmerica decided to play a cruel trick and has filled the day (literally, filled the day) with Star Trek. Sorry, this is not my jam.
So I have resigned myself to Facebook scrolling, game playing on my phone, and updating my web page...all very important tasks of a successful person. But I need to also throw in there the routine of Zero constantly needing to go outside to do the very important task of finding sticks and chewing on them. He doesn't need to pee or poo...just constantly go outside to see if there is something going on or a new stick he might need to find.
But since I have WiFi and my tablet travels well, I can sit on the front step and enjoy the morning weather. And I have to admit, the only thing I am currently missing is my coffee (which is on the table in the house). Zero is trying to sneak in some digging in the rocks while I listen to the birds chatter and watch the million bunnies that call our yard home. (But seriously, I grew up in the country and don't remember seeing this many bunnies...ever. It is like there is a bio dome surrounding the neighborhood and someone decided to drop them all in here with no chance of escape. And yes, once I typed bio dome, Pauly Shore - you remember him, right - totally came to mind.)
Alright. Time to drag Zero into the house. I would show you a picture of him exploring, but my phone is sitting on the table next to my coffee. Yes, I know it's a rough life.
Until next time.
A little about me
I blog for fun, to get my thoughts in order. I am a mom to two frustrating and wonderful kids and one diva dog. My full-time gig is teacher and I do some side hustle with a few DS businesses. I love working with people...but I also value my alone time since in reality I'm a huge introvert.
