Sometimes the pressure of life overwhelms me, I mean I know that no-one’s life is perfect and I know that I have it pretty darn good, but sometimes it’s just so hard to keep on top of everything, keep the house tidy so I feel happy and not dragged down by mess, eat healthy so I am full of energy, workout so I feel strong and powerful, be creative so I feel content, manage my finances so I am set up, enjoy the simple things so I appreciate my life and the people in it, sleep better, breathe better, weed the yard, look after my fur babies, make my boyfriend laugh oh man the list could go on forever! These are the things I
obsess write about in my personal One Note, I list ideas, books to read, hacks to try and track all of the attempts I take at trying to make my life easier… Writing these things down is just one way that I ease the stress of trying to be a functioning adult… but sometimes all of the words and ideas and lists can also be overwhelming! That is why I started this blog! I want to sort my brain out, structure my ideas, work on my focus and slow down!
A few years ago, I got slightly obsessed with finding my passion! Thanks to good old Google everywhere I went on the internet was plastered with the word Passion! (I mean that’s what happens when you obsess over things on the internet..) Find your passion, follow your passions, do something you are passionate about, passion, ah what is my passion!? I spent a good chunk of time trying to figure out what my passion was… until I realised… I don’t need to add finding my life’s passion to my list of already growing stresses!
AND finding your passion, doesn’t mean that is going to be your passion forever, things change, interests change so why obsess on finding that one thing to be happy and instead just focus on whatever is making me happy right now!
My One Note is pretty special to me, it’s where I go to download and plan pretty much everything in my life! The Pink Parri Passion Projects tab is where I go when I think of a new project to start! It’s where I started taking notes for Bomb Chicka Fizz Fizz (my online Fizz Biz), my 2016 wardrobe capsule and a whole heap of ideas for other projects that I want to do! The list grows quickly and some of them have been on the to do list for way too long… and some I have started but half-assed and/or not finished! That is why I have decided to start sifting through all of the lists, ideas and mix in a few of the more boring ‘to do’s’ that I have been collecting like Pokémon cards instead of actually being an adult and completing! It’s time to slow down and complete one project at a time (instead of jumping from project to project)! Some will be fun, some will be boring, some will be small and some will be a bit bigger, but I plan to track each one of them here on the blog! I don’t want to set any guidelines or list them at the start, the only rules I am giving myself is to take one at a time and to share the steps and/or my thoughts with guys!
That’s all for now! Just a little insight into my thought process behind a few upcoming projects/experiments I will be sharing with you this year and to announce my plan on slowing down (just a little) into the universe!
