Everything All At Once

Lately I have been feeling as though I want to do everything all at once which includes writing more, writing better, getting fitter, eating better, reading more, working on my business plan and learning how to use my camera so that I can take pictures like littlebrownpen who seriously takes the kind of pictures that make me want to cry they are so beautiful. I want to make people cry. In a good way. The kind of way that inspires them to want to be better at their craft(s) and make other people cry. Eventually the whole world will be crying and it will be frightening at first, but also pretty amazing, all these tears of joy. Entire villages and suburban neighborhoods will just flood over with the happy tears, but some places are experiencing moderate to severe drought conditions at the moment, so perhaps this would not be so terrible after all.

It is a bit overwhelming to want to do so many things so much better, all right now. So all I did after work today was go on a hike with Alan. It was okay that I didn't take any pictures or work on my business plan because during the hike we saw a peacock. And then we ate ramen. And hiking, peacocks and ramen just so happen to be a few of my favorite things.

I want to be better at a lot of things, too. This attitude get me mediocre at everything. Does this make sense?

It's a good thing to want to better yourself in so many different ways. Just don't put too much pressure on yourself to advance quickly in any one thing. Or, make a list and take one thing at a time.

On another note, peacocks are so cool. Jonty and I ate dinner outside at a restaurant on the countryside, and there was a beautiful peacock just wandering around. And it tried to eat our salad! Jonty had to stare him down...

2busy I know exactly what you mean-- that's how I feel too!
Breenuh, thank you for the sage advice, I shall make a list! Dinner in the countryside sounds so relaxing :)

I've felt like this since I was 16. Now, at 26, I want to learn Spanish while I'm in the VI, write my book, write my blog, volunteer in the community, start a committed yoga practice, get a 2nd source of income, and spend more time on the beach. Oh yeah, and save enough money to buy a good camera so I can take tear-producing pictures too. I like what 2busy says about this attitude making you mediocre at everything. I will have to remember that. I don't have any great advice besides choosing to use your energy in the most satisfying way in each moment, and being fully present while you're doing it. Also, feeling motivated to improve in so many areas is far better than stagnating!

Ashley Joy, I think you are right. Just trying to be fulfilled each day by doing things that bring me joy and are good for me seems to be the way to go. I highly recommend getting a camera, they're so much fun! Then we can share our pics with each other while we cry ;)

I want to become fluent in Spanish, learn to play an instrument, achieve an actual degree, begin a writing career, earn more money than I can spend; buy a camera that not only takes amazing pictures but also prints, frames, and hangs them on my living room wall in a stylish fashion; become a pastry chef, open and run a diner, and pop out a couple of kids before I turn 40. Oh, and I want to rule the world. Any tips on how to accomplish that?
