Day 20 - This Month "Boxes"

This month has been... has been:

UGH...

*Lee passing out on the hard concrete*

Very tiring. Very confusing. Very long. Very stagnant. Very everything.

But I'm back on my feet... I think.

This past week was getting back to normal. I think.

You know, since turning 40, or around that time, I tend to put a lot of stuff in life through filters, and that goes for people also. I tend to categorize folks. I tend to place everything in certain boxes.

Like, there's box marked IMPORTANT. There's one marked UNIMPORTANT. Then there's some boxes marked as TRASH. All of that goes in a room of my mind.

Well, this month, I felt like I left the room.

And I came back, and the boxes were turned over, and everything was scattered all around.

All around my mind, that is.

And I've had to find a way of overlooking the utter chaos and putting everything back into it's proper box. And having the patience to do it right.

That's it in a nutshell.

An arduous process it is, looking at each person and situation, and not only deciding what box they go in, but why they go in said box.

That's how I describe this month.

I haven't been keeping track of goals set and all that. The only cosistent thing going on is me continuing with my savings goals for the year, and churning away on that. My goals techonologist Ms. Not so Anonymous (who's also my future POTUS) is taring the club up with her personal weekly goal challenge. I have a little bit of month left. I'ma follow her example and set one or two goals for the month.

This past week has been good. I did what I needed to do at work. Period.

This weekend was even better. I ran a LOT of errands. I went to church. I finally got out to my sister's new apartment waaay on the southside. I even hung out with my best friend.

I concentrated on the box marked "IMPORTANT". And that's all I wanted to do...

All I needed to do.
