Sometimes it is so hard to set priorities.
I’m not talking about tasks, more talking about life priorities and what comes first.
I am trying for a career that doesn’t have a normal schedule and I want a certain lifestyle but that doesn’t give a whole lot of margin for error. If I want to make it, my career has to be my number one priority. Sometimes you really don’t want it to be, and sometimes that makes you feel like you don’t want it enough.
Some people call it heartless when you say you put your career in front of relationships.. whether it be friends or more than friends.. but if your friends are your true friends they will understand, and if the person you are with is meant to be, they will still be there on the other side.
Sure it sounds bitter, but I assure you I’m not. Young people in business will tell you how much they have sacrificed to be where they are. And maybe sometimes we miss out on “life” while we are trying to achieve our goals, but I will hopefully look back and know I chose my head over my heart and made the best decision to make me the best I can be.
Today I had a conversation with my Mum about distractions..as always she gave the right advice. Career is what keeps me alive and it’s time to refocus. I have always considered others in my decisions, but you have to learn to be selfish sometimes.
I am a party girl, and I don’t deprive myself of that, but it definitely has an effect. When I was detoxing, I was much more efficient and focused. Perhaps time to go back to that?
You only get one shot at life, and sometimes I feel like I’m not doing enough to succeed. Other times I feel like I’m not “living” enough when I get jealous of people in comfortable relationships, or travelling the globe. Then I remember the path I am on and look at what I have already achieved and it comforts me.
I am going to write out my goal list and share it. Some of them are over ambitious but hey.. if you shoot for the moon you will still land amongst the stars.
