Don’t you find that you are happier if you DON’T sit at a computer all day and get up and DO instead? Unless I have Real work I have to do at the computer, I now limit myself to a little bit in the morning and a few minutes in the evenings just to check in.
Now I’m back to DOING the things in life that make me happy and not just writing about it with no time left to live it. Right now I’m enjoying FAll.
You know, I started this website because I have a nice life and do things for me that make me happy. It’s an Art, a lifestyle I create to be the way I want. I want to share those thoughts and ideas with other women over 50. Then something happened; I was spending so much time writing and reading on the computer and internet that I was losing my Happy! The very thing that I wanted to share was no longer what I was living! Make sense? The computer, internet, facebook, twitter, pinterest, etc., all suck you into a world that can be fun and interesting but then becomes very addicting and all consuming.
I’m not quitting. I just need to re-group, set better time limits and priorities. I want to knit and sew. I need to work my day job (which is spent with many hours on the computer!) I love to decorate my home for seasons and holidays.
I enjoy cooking and cleaning when I’m not rushed about it. All these things that make my life Happy were being pushed to a back burner and I was getting irritated and frustrated because there wasn’t enough time.
So please bear with me as I re-set my activities and schedule. I DO love writing and keeping this website, so that won’t stop. I just need to make sure it’s fun again and not another job that I feel I HAVE to do. My posts will be shorter, more light-hearted, more fun, and more pictures. This is a Happy place to come to, not a lecture or lesson to be subjected to. Who wants that? If I can share some ideas or thoughts that are beneficial or useful to you – Great!
I started off with coaches and gurus that are internet and website experts, and that had it’s place in the beginning. I needed to learn the How-To’s of the mechanics. Then the coaching got into: you need to write so many posts a week; they have to be so many words; they have to be posted on a certain day and time; you have to get so many sign ups and followers, etc, etc! I guess that’s important for some, but it isn’t fun for me. It became a full time job! I just don’t have the time or desire for another full time job.
So now that I have the basic mechanics down, gone with the coaches and experts! What appears on this website is the Life of a 50ish Woman that is making her life the best it can be. That includes making changes when things aren’t the way I want them to be! I truly live by the premise – If Something in Your Life isn’t the Way You Want it To Be, Then Change It!
