Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze ~ Amanda Cross
There are many types of romances, but the one I want you to think about is your dream journey? Do you have a romance with your dream journey? If you do, I can almost guarantee that creating boundaries like making sure that household chores get done so you can work towards your dream goals turns that dust of everyday life into a golden haze.
Last week was my fifth week at my new job on my new schedule. I experienced some exhaustion, but when I realized it was because I’ve been able to devote more time to my creative pursuits, I was actually energized. Prior to this schedule I’m working, I was lucky to write 15 minutes a day. Now I take whatever time it takes me to write 800-900 words per day so I can achieve 5000 words per week. And those of you on a writing journey with me know that can take a lot out of you.
So now I actually have to set a boundary that I don’t surpass the 900 word goal in the mornings. If I do, I seem to be tired to the point I can’t concentrate at work later in the afternoon and early evening. And by limiting my creativity, telling myself I can’t work on something, actually seems to get creative juices flowing when I allow myself to work. Funny how that works?
How has working on your dream journey made your life more enjoyable? I’d love to hear!
