Good Afternoon! I know it’s been a minute since my last post and I really have no other excuse besides the fact that I have a lot going on and haven’t found the time to post. I used to complain about not having anything going on and how I was frustrated with my lack of motivation. At the end of 2015, I made a promise to myself that I was going to start getting my life in order and work towards becoming a better me. So far, I’ve conquered my fear of driving by getting my license, got out of a toxic relationship (https://amoreluxe.com/2016/02/24/wisdom-wednesday-priority-vs-option/) and I was promoted at my part-time job which has required me to take on more responsibility. I am proud of myself for achieving these goals but feel overwhelmed at times because I have a hard time finding balance.
I know a lot of it has to do with learning how to manage my time wisely (Check out this post for tips that I’m working on: https://amoreluxe.com/2016/02/04/acquiring-time-management-skills/) but the majority of it has to do with me trying to play catch up and looking at my life as a race towards the finish line instead of a journey where I should pace myself and focus on the present as well as the future. The only person that I should be in competition with is myself and that everything that has happened in my life has happened for a reason. I may not be where I want to be but I am a lot further than I was and for that reason alone, I am thankful. As the saying goes, “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and I understand that greatness takes time. Learning how to live life to the fullest in the present while still making sure that you stay focused and prepare for your future is a balancing act in itself but I feel that it’s essential for me to maintain peace and sanity. I’ve been slipping as far as my diet and exercise routine but I’m not giving up! I also am working on going out more and trying new things instead of staying cooped up in the house because that’s when I get back into a rut! Slowly but surely, everything will come together and I will continue to take the necessary steps towards my goals. Stay tuned to see how I’m doing!

Always remember to love and live luxuriously!
