simplicity...


I often think "oh I just want to go back to when life was simple" and then I realistically think about things, and life has not been simple since I was 5, at least to my mind at the time...

But oh how I would invite some simplicity in my life now, the job search is so dismal it is depressing, and that essentially affects my entire life...
I have to admit that I am a woman who loves routine, who loves planning my day, my week, my month, I like flexibility too, but I like the plan, it gives me purpose, it gives me motivation, it gives me a to do list that I can check off one by one...
My routine is so non-existent in this up and down roller coaster ride... I don't know when I am going up and when I'm going down.
I am so ready to get off and get on the predictable but still joy filled carousel for a bit...

it's friday, looking for a job is a job itself, enjoy your weekend and remember last weekend clarity.......it will happen.

and yes i need to remember the clarity and not get down...but the job search in nyc is so tough....

But only you are responsible for creating routine, not a job, nor another person.

There is a fine line between whimsy and sabotage.

When you stop beating yourself up trying to pigeonhole your personality and just be it becomes much easier to create a life of freedom.

harsh.:) but oh so true...something I have actually been coming to terms with in the last few days, again.
You know something and somewhere along the way you forget again.
