Reminder to myself: baby steps

I have a lot of change going on in my life right now. My work, my routine, my diet, all these have been shaken up in a short period. This is a good thing, though right now I'm just getting used to it all. In truth I want to incorporate even more new things. I'm hoping to get into a new exercise routine. After some weeks, I plan on going into play rehearsals that will take up my evenings too.

But even the things that have gone into effect are still brand new. I think it will take me some time to adapt to how these things feel. Right now it's kind of stressful. I believe I'll feel more comfortable with things in time, but it can't happen all at once. In that case, it make sense to not change everything up at once. Maybe I should worry about getting a handle on the stuff I've got on my plate already before I pile on even more.

It's so typical of me. I want it all and I want it now. I want to power through my new work and schedule, remake my body, and do all my creative projects. But I need to remind myself that it's okay to take these things on with baby steps. Let me get used to how things are now, for at least a little while.

So it's okay if I don't jump into my new fighter workout routine. I feel guilty, like I'm falling down, like I'm not going to accomplish my fitness goals. But I don't need to do it all right now to get it in time. It will come. Like so many things in my life, I need patience.
