Ahem. Service, please. God, does anyone even work here?
Ever notice how everyday life gets in the way of what-you-want life? Like how gradually things you prioritized fall by the wayside. Mfer, that’s annoying. Getting back on track is tricky too. I’ve been reading up on creating habits and how they help solidify the changes and behaviors you want. But it’s not always so easy to create a new habit. I’ve been meaning to floss my teeth every day for about 8 years now.
As you may know, I’ve been keeping busy while allowing this site to languish significantly more than I’d like. I’m not especially proud of that. Working for The Man has been creeping up on me and heyzeus christo, blogs take a lot of work. But what I want to do is get back to those glorious days of yore. With classes galore, video posts, learning, archery! I’ve been dipping a toe in, but my still depleted savings account and scheduling implores me to take it easy.
And then sometimes motivation just shows up and slaps you in the face. And sometimes it just shows up in the form of a seemingly innocuous email. Like say from #wds HQ.
You may or may not recall I could barely contain myself last year upon returning from this conference. It was exactly the kick in the pants I needed to quit my job and start living life even more. For some crazy reason (finances!), I had been contemplating selling my ticket to some lucky bastard who could take my place. But that email arrived with a listing of potential workshops and I almost peed myself. Holy balls they looked amazing! I couldn’t pass that up! I have to go.
Now, all that said, I’m working on getting back on track. I probably have been a bit too eager in the past and should post a little less frequently. That’s cool. I can do that. I don’t have ridiculous amounts of time (or money!) to throw at things, so I’ll have to be a little more creative. But we can do that. I mean that’s what you do, right? You fall of track and then you recenter, remotivate and get back on track. Some times it’s faster than other times, but you ultimately get your ass moving again. Because it’s about where you want to be, not necessarily where you are right this second.
Y’know, I think it’s time to break out the JOST t-shirt again and get crackin’. Speaking of, you want one? Portland hasn’t seen it yet and let’s be honest, the logo is badass…
