Go for the Extra Scoop

Friday, May 11, 2018

Happy Friyay everyone! I hope the last month or so has been going great and you’ve been kicking butt with whatever you’re doing. I’ve been crazy busy with the semester ending, enjoying the last bit of time I had with my friends who were graduating, and work since we are getting into our busy
season. On top of all those crazy things, I’ve also found myself living to please others. I didn’t realize how caught up I was in making sure everyone around me was taken care. Yesterday I was sharing some of the things I want to do in the future, and not until I was typing them did I realize that because I’ve been so focused on everyone around me I’ve lost sight of what I want for myself.

I really let myself get consumed in the nonstop busy rut the last two months. Because I let myself fall in, I kept putting the things I needed to do for myself on the back burner. You don’t even realize you’re doing it because you always say, “I’ll get it done tomorrow” and then realize two months later you still haven’t worked on what you’ve needed to. I always set time aside for myself, so I can work on my goals, but recently have been skipping over the times so I can accommodate to everyone’s needs. Yesterday I finally had time to sit down and recollect my thoughts and re envision my goals. Not even gonna lie, I actually laughed at myself when I realized how much I lost sight of what I wanted.

I don’t know, maybe I’m just speaking for myself and I care to much about others, but I do know it’s so easy to lose focus of goals you’ve set for yourself. I get so worried about people walking out of my life if I don’t maintain contact, or keep them happy, but in reality, people are going to come and go whether you want it to happen or not. Imagine investing so much time into something or someone just for it to up and leave your life. Once it’s gone you’ve realized how much you were investing in
them and not yourself. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing to invest time into something or someone, because it is perfectly okay to invest time. I’m just saying make sure you’re investing just as much time into yourself. In the end the one person that is still going to be there is yourself.

Like I said before, I might be the only one going through this issue, but I do hope this helps you keep sight of what you want for yourself in the future. If you are sitting there thinking “Wow what do I want for my future,” that’s okay, just take some time to yourself and rethink about what you want out of your life. I’m so glad I was able to sit down yesterday to recollect my thoughts and share my goals for the future. It helped me come back to realization and want to work on myself again instead of putting me on the back burner. Don’t be afraid to put yourself first once and awhile, it makes all the difference in how you feel about yourself.
