Organized Chaos, a Promise, and a Little Inspiration
I have a pet peeve to share with you. It drives me absolutely batty when someone rants on about how busy they are. “Ohh, I’m just sooo busy,” they say. It’s annoying. Plus, it’s kind of rude because it’s usually in response to a social invitation or a simple question like, “How’s your day going?” We know your busy. We’re all busy.
Yet we all do it. I’m guilty of it and I’m about to do it right now…
I quit my corporate job to follow my passions, to build a brand of my own, and to eventually have my own business. In the meantime I’ve been presented with some really fantastic opportunities to work with some amazing people and companies. Plus, I still have to do whatever it takes to pay my bills. So, you know where that puts me? You guessed it… Soooo busy.
I apologize but it’s true. I’m not bitching about being busy though because it is completely my choice. I love it. My Dad always says to me that I thrive on chaos and boy is he right. Not bad chaos, but organized chaos. I’m staying busy by working hard, learning new skills, meeting new people, doing the things that I want to do, and still traveling as much as I can. In short, I’m really happy right now but I’ve unintentionally put my blog on the back burner.
They say (someone somewhere) that what we make a priority is our priority. I don’t want to believe that though because this blog has been such a huge part of my journey the past 8 months that I hate to admit I haven’t made it a priority over the past month or so and I’ve been slacking on the posting. However, I can tell you that it is in fact a huge priority but sometimes we do just get busy.
And that’s okay in my book.
I have to spend my free time working on the freelance projects I’ve committed myself to and I still have to drink wine on the couch with my husband every now and then. So, yes, I’m busy as hell. I’m working every single day of the week but I am enjoying the heck out of these new experiences and opportunities. In the past I had to create the chaos outside of my 9 to 5 via new projects, hobbies, or social plans, but now I actually have a plethora of fulfilling, organized chaos to keep me busy as a bee. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My promise to you (and especially to myself) is that I will continue posting and making SimplyDo Creative a priority. First off, because it is a priority and I know where I want to take this eventually and second, because I like to believe that some people out there actually enjoy reading what I have to say.
With all that being said… I’d like to share a video that I absolutely love. It makes me cry and smile and want to do big things. Like really big things. So, hopefully you like it too and it makes you want to do big things. Because at the end of the day we are all capable of big, amazing, life-changing experiences and ideas so watch this video then go do some stuff!
By the way, special thanks to Scott Dinsmore at Live Your Legend for posting this video again. It’s a good one!! And take a second and check out his website, it’s pretty darn awesome if I may say so myself.
