Life as a Pie


Lately I have been really trying to think of my life as a pie, does this seem weird? I just find that some pieces are getting really big, while unfortunately the others are getting smaller. With 24 hours in a day how is it possible to try and touch on all of these areas? I am very happy that I am in school, working, and still working and keeping very busy with my new life in Calgary, but sometimes I feel like I am forgetting other areas of myself and as a consequence, I feel exhausted.

So one portion of this pie seems to stare me right in the face, HOBBIES! So it is a common question that many people get asked... what are your hobbies? This seems to always stump me? I mean... I have a lot of hobbies.... I like to shop, obsess over personal finance goals and opportunities (I guess that is the accountant in the works talking), go for walks, spend hours looking at pointless things on the internet, read occasionally, go to yoga when I have time... but lets be honest...doesn't this list not seem a little lame to tell someone? Why can't I be an avid crocheter... or runner.. or something lol?

I guess my hope is that I can pay a little more attention to my personal pie and make sure that in 2013 some don't get larger and others get smaller. While there are only 24 hours in a day, I need to use every hour to the best of my abilities. I hope to use my time more effectively; make that time with loved ones more meaningful... (no I do not need to check instagram every 6 minutes lol), give myself that personal growth time.. and really just make every moment count.
