So it is day 22 of my new years resolution of getting something major accomplished everyday. My sister Elena was worried that after awhile I would run of of things to do. I always thought well then I could create things like no Facebook for 24 hours or sit in silence for 12 hours. I could create those sort of things that I know would be impossible but worth a try. Of course the people who know me well sort of laugh at that notion. But I will do that just not right now. I am in transition so I have to take each day as it comes.
What I found is that some days I leave the house at 5:30am to swim and then I end up back at my house at 10:30 pm because I did all sorts of things and I was invited to a party at the morning swim. So what I am i supposed to do. I have to choose between a party with friends or making sure I accomplished my task for that day. I chose friends. I will not apologize for that because they will always come first.
I thought about and even discussed with my friends what could I say in my blog. We came up with a bullshit thing that I could use for my task but you know what, I would rather just admit I failed today because I chose my friends. Seriously, I am just like that. Family and friends will always come first.
What I learned today is that yeah I can always make a task a reality but I am not willing to do that if I have to push my family and friends to the back burner. I will always chose them before completing a task. What I will do is ask them to give me some advance notice in the future so I can do both.
