I’m one of those people that has a hard time finishing what they start – blogging for example? I’ve already tried to write this post several times, and decided it wasn’t good enough, or I was bored with it.
I have a problem.
This is something that effects many different aspects of my life – work, friendships, relationships, my health, etc. It needs to end. Usually I’d make a grand statement about how it will end NOW damnit! But as you can probably guess, from what I just said – I’m a huge failure at following through. I’d like to say I’m slowly getting better.
I look at those people in life who have actually accomplished something they’ve set their mind to and I’m envious. They seem so happy, and so fulfilled. I know that I’m the only reason why I don’t finish what I start, so there is nobody to blame and there is no room for self pity. I think a solution to my issue could be rather then thinking about how boring, or how much work continuing to do something is going to be I should focus on the negative aspects of not finishing it. For example, if I don’t keep taking my daily vitamin then I’ll continue to be tired and sluggish from not getting the nutrients I need. BAM! Argument well made. Here’s hoping it works.
I’m the kind of person that loves to plan things. I love writing things down on a to do list, but do you think I do them? NO. I’m content with the feeling of having good intentions. It’s kind of exhausting and getting to the point where I’m just disappointed in myself and unmotivated to do anything because I know I won’t finish it.
I’ve started this ‘100 happy days’ task on my Facebook page – every day, for 100 days, I post something that makes me happy! I’m half way through and I haven’t missed a day yet (except when I didn’t have cell service or computer access). I feel pretty accomplished so far, and can’t wait to get to day 100!
It’s FRIDAY!!! Sweet success! I made it through another week. These weeks coming up are going to be cray-cray!
I’m a bit hung over at work today, not going to lie hehe. I had a Partylite Party at my house last night. Lots of my family showed up, so it was really great. It was my first official “party” since becoming a consultant in November. I had a book party in December, but that doesn’t really count as a “party”. It’s a lot more fun then I thought it would be. I guess you just need the right crowd though. I’m really glad I decided to become a Partylite Consultant. It’s slow going at first, especially since I have a full time job, but I know that if I put more effort into it I’ll get more out of it. It was really effortless to start, and I don’t know what I was so worried about. I guess I just had this fear that I would be risking something, which I wasn’t. It didn’t even cost me anything to start up! My unit leader is super amazing too. I think it’ll be nice to get more successful at it (once I find more candle lovers) and then I can make it a bigger part of my career! I know lots of people who say the products are expensive and blah blah – but in all honesty, they go on sale ALL THE TIME!!! They are also better quality, which is what people want.
Independent Sales jobs have really taken off lately. I feel like every other person I know is selling something independently, or working online. It’s so convenient to be able to stay at your house and earn money! I’m not sure if it’s become so popular because people need more money for the things that they need/want, or if people are just getting too lazy to work outside of their homes.
I can hear the pile of paperwork on my desk calling my name…only 4 more hours until the weekend officially begins for me!!!
