If you start out each week counting the seconds until Friday rolls around again ….. you might want to look at what you are doing that is sucking out the joy. Sometimes it is simple stuff, people trying to suck your joy, tasks that suck joy all day long or simply because you stayed up too late and making it through the day let alone the week seems like an impossible task.
I stayed up too late last night…. it sucked the joy right out of me. I may not make it… if you find my corpse sleeping under my desk. Just leave me… it is better for everyone that way.
Well… when you starting saying it’s warming up out there because it is now “only -26 o/c” you know you live somewhere too cold for humans. It makes it pretty easy to work and stay indoors. That means I really have no excuse… even though I can give you a million right off the top of my head for not doing more… it never seems to be enough somehow.
Today I heard some good advice on @garyvee … if you do not want to work on it all day… you haven’t picked the right thing. It is so true. There were so many times in my life growing up that I tried to fit a square peg in a triangle hole… it almost fit, but I knew it did not feel right. I kept plugging away only to leave whatever I thought “i should be doing” for something I actually wanted to do.
At the finish line the only thing that matters is “were you happy and did you make others happy?” If you think about that you might realize you do not have to change anything just because “should” told you to. Your happy is not the same as anyone else… that’s kinda the point.
What are the things you must do everyday to be happy? Figure that out and you win.
For any of you who have dreams of starting a side hustle and look at all the advantages and ignore all the disadvantages… I just want you to really think about what that means.
Today is Saturday, my day started as it always did… before I can wipe the sleep off my eyes at 8AM I check.. Facebook, Instagram, twitter… email… any fires? work to do immediately? No? great now I can take care of life… laundry, dishes.. cleaning… eating… working out.
I can’t get enough protein today… being a vegetarian that can be tough. More eggs… just sayin.
After the gym, getting wine and supplies for the wine tasting next weekend (because I have no time to do it before Saturday) … all others hear is you tasted and bought some wine, that doesn’t sound so bad. It is not that easy… it no longer is fun, it is research, knowledge and spending a long time picking wines at the store that you hope total strangers will like.
When that is done, I come home to work on night market. I am not complaining… at all. This is the life I chose… and if you are not willing to give up your free time to invest in your side hustle, just avoid the frustration. The goal is to be happy, not make nice stories for others, this is not Facebook, this is your life. Being happy. That is who wins. I am busy and I am happy….. now I will complete some sponsorship requests and eat ice cream with caramel sauce. That is my happy. What is yours?
