Adult-ing

I do not even know where to start. I have been MIA for eight ( 8 ) months, but I tell you, I have a perfectly valid reason why it's been a ghost town here lately. The past months have been nothing but intense craziness. You see, my work place has been transferred to corporate head office since March of this year. Stating the obvious, travel is 24-kms one-way, so x2, that would be 48-kms every day. It's not like we have the best traffic system here in the Philippines, thus the ultimate need to wake up at 4:30AM every single damn day. Admittedly, I didn't think I'd last and I know that I will never adjust to living in the South - working in the North kind of thing, but hey, I'm surviving.

Adulting.

Thriving.
I wish I'd get my blogging mojo back. I have tons of scheduled and unfinished posts that I have been wanting to share with all of you, but I just can't seem to bring myself to wholeheartedly write about them. I have been going to bed tired and have been waking up the following day still tired. So whatever little free time I have, I choose to get extra hours of sleep or hang with friends or simply do nothing. I try to enjoy these little un-frazzled moments.

Even if I'm in my 30s, I see that I am still a work-in-progress and as tough as the past months have been — transferring offices, a good boss resigning + a close friend resigning, everyone wanting to be a super cook in the kitchen ... everything that came out from these experiences taught me a lot about myself and have shown me that I am resilient & can slay while I'm at it :)



Have you ever struggled in being a grown-up? What do you do whenever you feel like there's just so much on your plate? Any advice on how to make adulting easier?  Peace + Love + Good Vibes. RUSS.

Just literally take each day as it comes. No sense in driving myself bonkers trying to do it all - that is my life theme. I do what I do, when i can do it and that is all. I won't do more or less than what makes me happy!

Don't even worry about it! Take care of you first and foremost! At the age of 48 I realized that I come first or I have nothing of value to offer others. Wait until you feel good about blogging again then slay that too! You will get there. Sounds like there are a lot of changes in your life right now and that will be great content to share later on! Sleep is SO important! I do not get enough good sleep myself but working on that. Take care for now!

Well welcome back. I do work and I understand how difficult it can be to have a life/work/blog balance. You do what is easy for you, what makes you happy. Even if it is just saying hello and how things are going. Maybe blog about that. How are you feeling?
Good luck to you

I totally feel that I am barely adulting lately. I am so beyond exhausted with life and everything I have to do. I've also lost my blog mojo a few times. You will get it back. Don't force it.

Adulting, I say this to myself at least once a week. It’s crazy how time flies, sometimes I wish I could take back not having so many responsibilities and deadlines to meet. Now that you are back in the game, it’s your time to shine! Slay away and best of luck with work and other tasks that come your way.

Ah, adulting. Our great nemesis. The thing about being an adult is that it really just means having more and more on your plate as days go by. All you can do is take each day as it comes and do what you can when you can.

I think it happens to the best of us. There are often times when I have to step away for a bit. Take each day as it comes.

Ikes that is a crazy schedule. Me personally, I would have opted to move a bit closer so that I had a work/life balance. I get that it is sometimes hard to up and move. My husband worked an hour away on a good day. He hated the commute. Thankfully, things changed a year ago. He now has to go to the nearest office every now and then.

Good to see you back and I do hope you get to go back to blogging 100%. :) Well, take it slowly. Life is short. Enjoy every minute of it.

I have to admit I'm not sure I manage to adult most days, I feel like I just hanging on by my finger tips to everything.

Sometimes we gotta take breaks which is a-okay! We're only human.

It's important to look forward not back. So don't worry about things you haven't done but focus on what you can do now or in the future. What's important is to set yourself realistic goals which include time for yourself!

Being in an appreciative mood as much as possible really helps.

Nina Kasper said...

Why, that is a work commute to get use to for sure! Sometimes we need to take breaks from the online world so we can get back on track. Totally understandable and glad to have you back!

Wander With Ola said...

Yeah, I admit being an adult is not the easiest thing. It's funny how the kids (including my young self) wish to be a grown up as soon as possible. It's great to see you back. Let's enjoy this ride, while it last. :)

adulting is a joke! I just want to stayin bed in my jammies all day watching cartoons! One day at a time! breath in and breath out!

Cris said...

I think we all know this feeling. But I am sure that this is just a phase, and it will eventually pass.

Evelyn Lo Foreman said...

Yes, yes! I totally get where you are at. For me, listening is important. Following inner guidance is key. Remembering my why is also critical. And then, sometimes, ya just gotta stop and consider - maybe, it’s time for a break, yes? Xo, Evelyn, PathofPresence
