Today required a level of personal management that I'm typically not very good at achieving. I would call it "time management," but my perspective has recently been shifted. We all get the same amount of time in the day. Time isn't managed. It's constant. We're the ones who must be managed. Some people pack their day more efficiently than others. I'm most usually in the "others" category.
My workday was solid. I had a good show, accomplished a good deal of production and handled a programming side issue that needed addressed. I felt good about it. Part of managing me, a big part, is making sure I'm applying attention where it must be applied.
I picked up wardrobe shirts after work, for an upcoming performance in a play. As soon as I arrived home, I looked at the clock and this is where the personal management kicked into high gear. I needed a nap, a workout and dinner--all before 6:40pm.
I napped until 3:45, made some coffee--enjoyed a cup, planned dinner--then started the fish baking on low heat, headed to the Y for my workout--then back home by 5:40pm--finished preparing dinner, enjoyed dinner--showered, changed clothes and headed out for rehearsal by 6:37pm.
The good news is, this schedule is VERY temporary--the rehearsal schedule is light (not every night)--and it'll all be finished, performances and all by July 19th.
Doing this play is a positive way for me to celebrate how far I've come while nurturing a core element of who I am and what brings me joy. Why, when I'm already busy and have so many other things I want to accomplish, would I take on a role in another play?
It all goes back to the "Epiphany Day" (May 15th and 19th, 2014) posts. This is a happiness thing. It wells up happiness inside me.
Speaking of happiness, it's Throwback Thursday!!
#TBT ---Official preview photos of the Daddy-Daughter Wedding Day Reveal from Touch of Wonder Photography (www.touchofwonderphotography.com) Shauna Meyer is one incredibly talented photographer! Side note: Shauna has lost an incredible amount of weight over the years. Her personal transformation is outstanding. Oh, and one more thing--the picture where I have my head on her shoulder--yeah--that's pretty much an all out sob. Couldn't help it. It was an awesome cry. Amber is stunningly beautiful. These moments found me looking at her and realizing this is it, this is a closing of one chapter and the opening of another for her...and the flashbacks to her birth and important milestones along the way, kept flowing through my brain.
I plan on writing more about my maintenance plan tomorrow night and over the weekend.
