Needs and wants

As if I'm not busy enough, I have started writing a book. Don't ask me what kind of book because who knows how long my interest is going to last this time? I'm only at chapter one and maybe that's all to it. The beginning and the end.

My mind is all over the place as usual. I want to meet my blogging friends (I've met one yesterday and will meet another one tomorrow). I want to invite old friends over for lunch. I want to catch up with my cousins. I want to get the new business off the ground. I want to bring the kids on holiday. I want to travel to new destinations. I want to start meditating. I want to check out the new Capoeira class in my neighbourhood. I want to attend gardening talks. I want to grow more vegetables. I want, I want, I want!

So many things, so little time. My mind is cluttered with too many thoughts. I need to make a list lest I forget. My memory is failing me. I need to prioritise. I need to save money so I can afford that holiday. I need to reorganise my time so I can be more effective. I need to meet my partner and get some work done. I need to stop running around like a headless chicken. I need to sit still and listen to what I really want.

Very distracted today. Missing my head, that's why.

Take a deep breath, and everything will fall into the right place by itself :)

TT, oh I simply miss reading your blogs during my biz trip. There's a bunch of "I want"s which I think is positive, rather than dwelling in the "I don't want"s right? Outcome thinking is the most helpful habit to develop.

Wow, you're writing a book? Cool :D

And I'm the same way. I want and need everything but time just doesn't permit me to do all of them ...

MH - Take a deep breath and go to sleep. Everything's forgotten when I wake up from my nap :-)

Blur Ting said...

EE - Aiya, my "I want" list is longer than that. Cannot list them all...

Blur Ting said...

Nick - I've stopped working on the book the last couple of days. I want to but I need to find the time!

Blur Ting said...

Petunia - You've got the experience. I am still struggling to find the 'angle'.

Blur Ting said...

Soul - Yes! Go fishing with ya. My kids want to go somewhere far, far away and well, your place seems really far away.

Blur Ting said...

Mike - Thank you.
