Beat the clock?

Baking, visiting, party after party, shopping…… and Christmas is over before you know it. Did you take time to breath in the midst of  craziness, that we tend to be, around the Holidays? It’s hard trying to beat the clock and find time to relax, breath and just be still for a moment. It all goes by so fast when your schedule is filled up with something everyday that it’s difficult to actually enjoy the month of December. I myself have been busy with all the above and am just now finding the time to blog about this! Beating the clock….. This is something that I feel we ponder when we’re simply to busy. We have filled up every hour of the day with “stuff”. A list of To Do’s can be endless. Having the nerve to say ‘no’ makes some feel guilty and that’s a sad shame. I say let’s make saying “no” to over scheduling, and make “you” a priority for the New Year! Just by saying no to over booking yourself will indeed make yourself a priority over to much business, which will only lead to stress and anxiety. Scratch out the thought of “I must beat the clock” because time is running out, and replace that thought with, “I’ve done all I can do for today and I’m happy to NOW take time for myself”. That really should be on your list. That, meaning “you”. Enough of the tic toc gotta beat the clock. Ask yourself at what cost? Your sanity? In the month of December majority of peoples “stable” mind becomes jeopardized by lack of prioritizing themselves with over committing to visiting and gifting to people they don’t like! I would say that your emotional well being is more at stake then the rest of the year for obvious reasons. So look at the clock with a smirk and a nod  while thinking this thought, ” I really don’t give a damn”. It’s time you put the joy of Christmas back in your heart, just like when you were a child…. so happy and giggly, especially excited for Christmas and hoping it will snow! Remember those old movies such as; ‘Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer” and “Frosty the Snowman”? Sit down in front of the TV and watch a good ole fashion Christmas movie with a cup of hot chocolate and some marshmallows! Beat the clock? Bah humbug! Happy happy joy joy to you all!

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
