Trying to keep up with life

Life seems to be moving too fast for me to keep up lately.  I’m falling behind…  Time is our most valuable commodity, simply because it is so incredibly limited!  It’s such a finite thing, time is, and in my opinion there is too little of it!  On the one hand, I need time to let my knee heal up some more before I begin climbing again, but on the other hand, I desperately need to climb to calm my stress levels down and get them out of the stratosphere!  I need time to sleep, time to eat, time to climb, and time to write.  I need time to shower, time to wash clothes, time to buy food, and time to hydrate.  I need time to worship in church, time to spend with family, and time to spend alone.  I need time to watch, time to listen, and time to learn.  I need time to help, time to be helped, and time to simply sit and contemplate my navel.  I need all this time, and it’s nowhere to be found!  What’s a person to do?!  I need time to photograph, time to breathe in nature’s scents, and time to be sheltered.  I need more time.  More time for everything.  I feel like my life is overwhelming right now because it’s traveling at the speed of light and the summer is already halfway over before “summer” weather has even officially arrived as of today.  Life was simple once.  I know it was.  I’m not sure if it’ll ever be simple again.  That’s not to say that I’m totally and completely miserable and not having any good moments.  I’m just pointing out all the things I need time for that are competing with one another for said time right now.  There’s a lot of things I need to do and many more things that I want to do for my health and well-being.  Last week wasn’t terribly successful with the hospital stay and all that.  Hopefully this week will end up going better.  We’re halfway through the week (Wednesday night) and it’s been a whirlwind.  I’m trying to clean up the kitchen for my spouse so that they are able to use the kitchen table, which has been taken over by my stuff for quite some time.  That’s a big task on top of my daily routine.  Routine?  Oh, yeah.  I forgot.  I don’t have one of those, ha!  I try to, but I have to get much better at it.  I need time to climb and to exercise.  I’m trying to lose weight.  I’m trying to keep up with things at church.  I’m attempting to write some short stories and/or a novel, and do some freelance photography, and, and, and…  AND take care of myself.  I’m not sure how well it’s all working.  I feel extremely fatigued and overwhelmed right now.  Not such a great sign.  We’ll hope that I get a good night’s sleep and accomplish what I need to accomplish tomorrow.  I hope you do, too!  Remember to take care of YOURSELF FIRST, because if you don’t do that, then you can’t help anybody else!
