It’s been a month now since I started my new job and during that time period I’ve been completely out of rhythm with my writing, music, and tasks around the house. This is partially due to having to adjust to a new schedule and partially due to some circumstances beyond my control. But if I’m going to be completely honest, there were just some days this past month that I didn’t feel like doing what needed to be done.
I’ve gone through phases like this in the past. Most lengthy of which was after our son was born. I mean what kind of father would I be if I didn’t take time away from my creative pursuits to spend time with my family? The flip side of that would be to ask what kind of father would I be if I didn’t do something to try and improve our quality of life?
So here at the beginning of August I am trying to turn over a new leaf yet again. I’m going to do my best to get back in some sort of groove and get things accomplished. I think it’s appropriate here to borrow a couple lines from one of my as of yet unreleased songs, “Hopes and dreams don’t mean a thing, if your decisions keep them from happening.” When it comes to deciding how to use your time, make sure you choose well.
