I’m tired today. It’s all good and work is good too. I made a mistake on an invoice this morning due to tiredness but I’ll rest well tonight. I’m getting on top of things really well now and am pushing for the future. I’m keeping my routine pretty strict and it’s amazing how it’s paying off. It all starts with a good morning routine.
I had an email today about the band. They’re practicing tomorrow and asked me to go along to play. I’ve chatted on the phone with one of them and they sound quite keen. All good stuff.
Lifes good. I’m pushing forwards.
I went along to a live music evening in our village last week to meet someone who’s band need a drummer. I know the guy too so that’s good. When they next get together to practice they’ll let me know so I can go along and have a play/practice with them.
I’m pushing my business along as well and am keeping my eyes out for a mentor so I can go to the next level. Maybe I’ll get advice from a few people. I’m keeping more than on top of work too and I put a lot of my keeping well and keeping focused down to good circadian rhythms started off by a really good morning routine. Getting good sleep, writing goals down daily for each day and furtherahead helps me focus too. Good structure. It’s good.
Everything is awesome.
I worked some of yesterday. I couldn’t do one of the jobs as the chimney was too tall to fit the cowl on my own but I’ll go back and fit it with someone else. The guy also wants other work doing too so all good. Afterwards I took my son to the beach and we did some casting practice then fished a bit. We packed up after a few hours and went to another beach to fish. He loved it. We got home before 9pm and I wasn’t late to bed. It’s all good.
This morning I slept in until 7:28am, just before the alarm I had set, got up, drank some tea, went to the allotments just after 8 and then went home for breakfast. Just after 9:20am we drove to the city and I’m waiting for a haircut. It’s the first time in a few years that I’ve had a proper haircut rather than just shaving it all off to bald or stupidly short. It’s made me realise how good my mental health is now. I figure I’m really getting back to being myself. I want to look smart again instead of not caring. Yesterday I had shave too. I want to look good for myself and customers. I’m attracting good things to me in life again.
Everything is awesome
I’ve got my second head cold in 2 or so weeks and it’s slowed me slightly but not much at all. I won’t let it.
I’m really busy and taking more and more on. I’m pushing my business along again and am increasing what I’m doing. I’m heading towards needing someone to come work for me. I’ll still keep pushing more and more. I need to get a website again for my building business plus I’m looking at ways of increasing income to help with my plans, and as a safety net. I’m looking into something online like possibly selling things like tee shirts but other ways too. I’m looking at getting my van sign written again so everywhere I drive I’m advertising myself.
I’ve had several years where I couldn’t face any of this and I figure if you’re not moving forwards you’re going backwards. I’ve been to scared and too unwell but now things are good I need to keep going. I’m setting some very high goals to achieve in the next month, the next year and then onwards. Some are short term but they’re all adding up to longer term goals. I’ve spoken with my accountant about them and he’s said to keep doing what I’m doing and he also said how well I am compared to last time we met. I’ve spoken with a mortgage adviser about buying properties to let. I’m doing the groundwork now instead of last minute or late, these goals are longer term, which I normally would. Leaving things late puts pressure on me and makes me make rash decisions. Everything from now onwards has to be pre planned and I know that things will go smoother but I’ll still have things to face. I’m not looking at what might go wrong, anxiety, and I’m not looking at past mistakes, depression, or tying myself in knots. I’ve written clear plans down but need to hone and fine tune them. It feels amazing to be able to do this. I’m also aware that I might get unwell again and that’s why I’m doing this too. It will take the pressure off if it happens.
Life is good.
