Friday Ramblings - Thinking vs. Creating.


If you've been reading for awhile, you'll notice one thing I say in at least three posts per month: "wow, time flies." I can imagine it gets boring to read, because it gets boring to type. But it's so unbearably relevant, isn't it? I mean, we're pretty much halfway through March! The first quarter of the year is almost done! AND I STILL DON'T HAVE ABS BECAUSE GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.

On a serious note, more often than not, life slips away from me faster than I can keep up. Remember how at the beginning of the year, I resolved to read one book per month? Yeah, I don't think I'm even halfway through my first book of the year. And as you probably noticed from this post, making working on my fitness has taken a back seat. It's like every night I go to sleep thinking "tomorrow I'll be better" or "starting next week, I'll start doing XYZ." Spoiler alert: I don't start doing anything.

As someone once said, "the trouble is, you think you have time." We all fall into this trap. Whether it's working out, or going back to school, or reading a book. We think we have time for some day...and maybe we do. But I know that I personally spend a lot of time thinking about the life I want to live, and not actually taking the steps to create that life.

I'd say I don't know why that is, but in all honesty, it's probably because I'm desperately afraid to take those steps. It could stem from laziness; I know it definitely stems from the fear of the unknown. But as Hannah Montana once told us: life's what you make it. And the time is going to pass anyway. I can either spend it wishing my circumstances were different, or I can actually work on making my circumstances different. I feel likeeee that isn't grammatically correct, but we're going to go with it because it's Friday. You're welcome.

Does this ring true for anyone else? Or am I just rambling? Happy weekend! XO
