When I started Crazy on the Outside, I really had one goal: to bring some kind of organization to my crazy life. I was at the point where my life was more running me than me running it and I desperately wanted to feel heard. I felt like I was drowning in my own emotions and activities. So, of course I decided to add on one more project, then another. While my life seems organized at this point, it is still quite crazy.
In the works right now, I:
- Am working on my first year of marriage with LD
- Have 2 dogs that still need a lot of help (one with anxiety, one with fear)
- Make my own Pantry
- Work on Personal Finances in order to go debt-free
- Work full time
- Go to school with at least 1-2 classes at a time
- Am working on home improvement projects
- Am working on woodworking projects
- Am making nearly all homemade gifts
The truth is, I have no idea how I get the time to do everything. I am not even sure if I actually have the time to do everything, but I also make sure to not lose myself in the chaos anymore and that is probably the biggest lesson I have learned since starting the blog. When I take 30 minutes for myself in the morning to workout and eat healthy throughout the day, I feel more in control. The moment I feel like I lose myself, all hell breaks loose in my life. If you are looking for me to tell you all the answers about how to control your life in your 20s, I don’t have all the answers. I don’t think anyone does, but the more you focus on putting one foot in front of the other and knowing who you are, the better off you will be.
I could not feel more honored by all of the friends I have made so far with the blog and the connections I have made with other people. Thank you all my loyal readers and bloggy friends. I look forward to continuing to bond over our words and experiences. I have so much more to learn.
