The Puzzle of Life
There's a million different parts of your life that come together to create your reality. What you are doing, what you want to do, how you approach situations, who you surround yourself with on a daily basis. The people in your life, the plans in your life, and maybe most important - the stuff you can't predict or expect. This time of year always feels super hectic for me with everything coming together - deadlines, traveling to see family, personal projects, etc.
How you react and how you deal with all of this coming together will determine who you become, and what kind of life you live. It's not easy - there are too many things you can't plan for - but, you can keep perspective. You can take those things in stride or let them break you down. You can own them and change your approach or you can let it ruin your day/plans/etc and mope around about it. If you want to move forward toward your goals, whatever they are, you have to remember - it will come together, you will make it work, but you may need to re-assess your approach.
It's been a hectic few weeks over here at The Early Hours preparing for the holiday shopping season. We've been dealing with our website going down unexpectedly, new customer service issues from expansion, and more. But we're moving forward, no matter what. It's been said, "a set back is just a set-up for a come back" - which is true, but it requires flexibility, courage, and persistence to change your plan and keep any momentum you had before in stride.
My point is this - You might not always have the piece of the puzzle you think you need, and it might just be time to put that piece down and come back to it. Another piece might be ready to be played while you're waiting for your move to make sense. And while you're waiting, someone else is making moves. So if you want to make something happen, don't let any excuse stand in your way - but don't create new problems in the process. Consider your moves like a chess match, and plan ahead, then make your moves, and re-asses your next steps. You got this.
We have a few holiday specials to announce later this week but in the mean time, check out these Gift Guides I made if you're thinking about getting anything for your friends and family. We tried to break it down into a few different personality types, but alot of our stuff crosses boundaries so you should check em out even if you don't think you'll relate. You guys rule...hope you have a great week this week, and remember...Never Hesitate, Never Surrender
