It’s Friday! How Do I Let It Go?
Here we are again, another week has gone by and the weekend is finally here! I can't begin to tell you how much Misty and I look forward to the weekends!
Some of you may laugh at this or say that there are more "serious" issues in the world... and I agree... but it is something I'm dealing with. I KNOW Some of you go through the same thing and I'm just tossing this out there to see what kind of feedback I get.
I can't remember the exact date, but a bit back it hit me that I was spending entirely too much time reading and not enough time working! I maintain around 8 websites along with my day job. I realize some of you maintain a hell of a lot more than that and to be honest, I can't imagine your work load!
For the past couple of months I have worked my butt off adding content to my thin affiliate sites, in hopes of getting better rankings in the search engines, and in hopes of making more money from those sites! Has it paid off? YEAH BABY! I can most definitely see how the hard work is paying off! Not too long ago I mentioned I had my best month ever in regards to Internet Marketing ... well this month is an even better month and another record month for me! I can only imagine how it's going to all pay off when the economy picks up!!!
But here's the deal... and again I realize some of you reading this have wayyyyy more on your plate than I do, but my brain is on OVERLOAD and I need to figure out a way to "step away" from it all! Now when I say "step away", I don't mean give it up or stop working physically, I mean when I'm not at my computer or for example when Misty and I are out on the weekends... I need to learn to MENTALLY LET IT GO!! Do you know where I'm coming from? And it's not just the Internet Marketing...
Right now in our lives we have so much going on... again mostly things we're dealing with mentally...
- Misty is in the middle of getting her Masters degree and I won't EVEN go into all she deals with being a teacher AND getting her Masters
- We're trying to plan vacation for later on this year
- We're trying to plan a wedding for next spring
- We're trying to plan a honeymoon
- I work a 40 hour a week job
- I work probably 3 to 5 hours a night on Internet Marketing and more on the weekends
- We're having our bathroom and kitchen floors replaced (I'm replacing the vanity in the bathroom myself)
- Spring is coming up and I have a ton of things to do to the house and lawn
That's just stuff off the top of my head... and again you may think there is nothing to it... and really there is not.. It's nothing we can't handle. But my mind is just TIRED! I don't have a problem laying it all down and going out on the weekends, hanging out with friends or whatever.. No problems physically walking away, but it seems like I'm constantly thinking of everything that needs to be done or things I could be doing! Especially when it comes to Internet Marketing.. That's where I need to learn to take a MENTAL BREAK!
I wake up thinking about what needs to be done. I usually stay up after Misty goes to bed or get back up after I lay down because I've got so much going through my head...
Sighhhhhh.... hahahaha Don't get me wrong... I'm having a BLAST! I love what I do and I thoroughly enjoy working on all that I do... I just wish I could CLEAR MY FRICKEN MIND SOMETIMES and just think about absolutely NOTHING! haha Can that be done?
Soooo... Are any of you out there in the same boat? Any tips, suggestions, maybe you want to share all that you're dealing with to let me know I'm not alone haha!
Ok, enough about that! Let's get on with this Friday's Video!
This is one of our favorite songs that we love to jam out to on Rock Band! Misty and I have been too busy and need to get back on the guitar and drums haha! Maybe this weekend we can jam out!
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! SMILE! Make someone else smile and enjoy life!
