It’s true you know. If you want something done. Or a change to be made. Just set a goal and do what it takes to reach that goal. But while you are working towards that goal, it’s also important to slow down and not try to do everything in your life all at once. That was my lesson this week. I am the kind of person who just keeps going until I can’t go any farther. Having bout with the flu didn’t slow me down enough. I should have seen the warning signs. But I didn’t. When Buckaroo had an assignment due and the printer was out of ink, as horrible as I was feeling, a trip to Staples for ink it was. And as I was figuring out what ink I needed, I realized I was wearing my yoga pants inside out. So awkward. If there was a flashing neon sign that described what I should be doing at that moment it would have said “GO TO BED”. But I didn’t go to bed. No. Inside out yoga pants and all I decided to take care of a few other errands while I was out. And then I went to bed. Apparently the universe was not very pleased with my idea of slowing down. So the next day, a migraine took care of slowing me down to a complete stop and made me go to bed. And I missed almost two days worth what I needed to be doing.
But let’s be honest. The past few weeks I have been going nonstop. Organizing my scrapbook/quilting stuff. Getting the s*** beat outta me with running. And more. So, I suppose losing a couple of day of what I should have been doing, was actually exactly what I needed. Today despite a migraine hangover and a little residual achiness, I am feeling rested. And taking deep breathes trying not to allow myself get overwhelmed with how much I need to do for school and at home.
I tested for my local police department this week. Fever and all. That was interesting to say the least. But I got through the test and actually feel pretty confident I did fairly well. I have another test for the same department this upcoming week. But that isn’t the best news I heard this week. No. Remember the job I applied for back in May that I really, really want? The job that pays more than a police officer and allows me to directly help people in crisis? The perfect job for me. The one I was being reevaluated for about a month and a half ago? Well I found out this week my application was referred to the hiring department. While it doesn’t guarantee I will get called in for an interview, I have one hellva chance! I cried when I heard the news. I genuinely have not wanted something career wise so f-ing bad since my acceptance into law enforcement training. I believe this job is meant for me as much as I believe my hearts in nature are leading me to the things I see in my dreams. If this job isn’t perfectly suited and meant to for me. Then everything I believe to be true about me and “my calling” will be a sham. And that scares the hell out of me. So please, please send positive vibes my way.
I have been thinking a ton about trying to figure out a way to start sharing the hearts some of you have sent me. But I feel a little stuck since I like my big idea better than any of my perfectionist self smaller ideas I have come up with. So I am asking another little something more from each and every one of you pretty awesome people. Along with continuing to send me a heart you have found, I am asking you to please share an idea of how you think I could start sharing the hearts I already have. Maybe not having my perfectionist self not involved will help.
Well, I am going to start tackling my to-do list and work on catching up on my assignments. As of now I am thinking I had better wait one more day to go for a run. But I know me and I need to get out there and at least take a walk later. Also I am going to dinner with friends this evening. It sure will be nice to get some girl time in! Meanwhile I look forward to seeing what you pretty awesome people have been up too. Oh and WordPress people? I would like to see all the blogs I follow in my reader. Not just the ones you people think should be there. So focus WordPress people, think Instagram for the iPhone app and switch things back in my reader. Got it?!
How what your week?
Any special plans or races this weekend?
Have you found a heart yet?
Any small ideas on how I can share your heart you have already sent me?
