I give up…

I give up…  I give up, and I surrender…my Saturday evenings in order to make this work.

As I mentioned in the last post, something had to change, so I made a change…  This weekend, I switched up my regular Saturday / Sunday schedules and it yielded nearly three times the number of writing hours as usual.

Usually, I do my big weekly cleaning crazy-early on Sunday morning, I mean, insanely early, like starting at around 4:45 am on average, and on average it usually takes about 2 hours to complete the work.  Yesterday evening, after writing, I did the cleaning, and because of this, today I was able to get up at about 5:00 am and use the following two hours for writing instead of housework.  Then after doing the weekly ironing and prepping for the day and eating breakfast, I did two more hours, and later in the afternoon, after stopping by the graduation open house of one of my students, I got in just over two more hours…and it was good, very good!  In working on revising The Hidden today, I experienced emotions that ranged from head shaking, “what the heck was I thinking when I wrote that part…?” to teary-eyed, “NOW THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKIN’ ‘BOUT!”

So yeah, not that I have such rousing and exciting Saturday evenings anyway, but this will be a sacrifice, a change in the usual in favor of something better.  Of course I’ll still make time for friends and the occasional Saturday evening chill time, but overall, I’m giving it up.

I started my formal study of a traditional Japanese martial art during my freshman year in college in late 1990 and in early 2017, I took a leap of faith and have been teaching traditional martial arts and fitness on a full-time basis. I enjoy researching and exploring topics ranging from health and fitness, brain science and quantum physics, to relational dynamics, energy, and optimum living. I believe that we all should be daily evolving toward our true potential; while there will be times when we fall back, or get pushed back, or knocked down, the sum of our steps over a given period of time should be forward.
