JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

Busy busy bee

So many ideas and so little time! I'm excited and I'm stressed, and I'm not even sure what I'm stressed about yet.

This week I've managed, even with a wheezing death rattle cough, to make a decent start on my novel, finish off my first real written work, Scenes of Betrayal, try and convince the CG that getting married in Thailand in the middle of the recession was a bad idea (no dice), and to agree on a bridesmaids dress for March. Ta-da! *insert wild applause here*

I'd like to thank my penguins, who have supported me all the way...

But seriously. Today I want to talk about choice.

How, I wonder, do I go about prioritising everything I want to do in life? At work, there are deadlines that are obvious. Outside of work, the only deadlines I have are in my head. The reality is, that if we want to have a family one day, the world isn't going to revolve around me anymore. And that makes me feel like time is ticking to get things done. So either I need to stop coming up with ideas or I need to start doing more. I'm going to opt for the latter for now.

The other choice I had to make recently was a very sad one. My close gal has, for a variety of reasons, had to schedule her wedding less than a week after mine. In an ideal world, we would be bridesmaids at each others weddings. In the real world, logistically managing to attend each other's weddings in different countries, with neither of us getting married in the place where we live is tantamount to impossible. It is with great sadness that we have had to agree it unlikely we'll be at each other's, mainly because we are choosing to put our partners and families first. But that's ok. Because sometimes you have to make hard choices, and as long as we don't lose sight of our friendship that will outlast any day we spend without each other, I know we will be fine.
