getting away from the computer

“Get away from the computer”

I’ll be really honest, the computer used to be one of those things I over-indulged in.

Like chocolate. Like bacon. Like shoes.

It used to be said as a reminder that I had to keep my priorities straight and always remember what’s important.

Now it’s pulling me away from a never-ending to-do list.

People are amazed that I’m able to accomplish so much, but to do that I have to make certain sacrifices with my time.

I used to do outpatient therapy until the early afternoon.

When the old staff of Aiming Low made certain choices to leave, I made the choice to leave therapy an hour away.

I decided that I could continue to make progress on my own. Maybe not as much as I could, but I’m making it.

I decided I wouldn’t be satisfied with giving up. I’m not. I never am.

But by making the decision to believe in myself when I had no reason to I strengthened parts of myself I didn’t know were missing out.

So now I have the list that never has an end in sight.

Challenging myself is never a bad thing.

I spend too much time at the computer doing half as much in twice the time to accomplish the same amount.

It’s not easy.

It never is.

It’s the decision I’ve made.

    You satisfied with giving up? YOU? Not a chance, lady!

    Now go get tomorrow, (like you always do)

    And may you have a heartfelt Thanks-for-giving Day with your awesome family. I’ll be thinking of you…
