The last years, I have learned more and more about myself and who I am. One thing I did not believe about who I am- Is being a workaholic, but after seeing people around me I can only conclude with that I am. People often mistake me for hating this busy life, but to be honest I don’t. The fact is that I love it this way! I love being busy, I love writing my schedules and I love trying to do as much as possible. It is like a personal challenge! Of course I wish I had more time for friends, family and so on, but I never want time to relax unless I am on vacation in another country. But on the other hand side, that is not really relaxing either, as I am running around with my camera always trying to capture the moments of these non-Norway places.
A lot of people I meet, wants to force me to relax… Some people even think they can save me from my busy life. Trust me, nobody can. Only me, myself and I. The fact is, if I want to make time for relaxing, I do. It is all about making priorities- but I cannot do it that often! I usually make time for non-working things for Saturdays and Sundays. I always try to work really hard from Monday-Friday, then have some easy time during the weekend. If things are way too busy, then… Well, then you have to wait until next week before making some few hours off.
Of course, I get really exhausted sometimes and just want to lay down and die, but I can’t! You only have one life, you know? When there is so much to do and see, why not do it? So in the midst of all this, I am enjoying! Even though 7-8 hours of sleep is not sufficient anymore! I guess the worst time of the day is after 7 pm, then I’m totally exhausted. So, I started taking power naps during the day. Only like 30-45 minutes. It helps, but it also makes me realize that- Hey! I’m starting to get old. I also know that I cannot keep on doing this forever! I’ll change my lifestyle in 2-3 years or something. No worries!
Gotta run to the gym now, have a wonderful day even though the sun is not shining (Oslo)! It’s weeeekend!
