Hey everyone! Okay I know it’s been two weeks since my last post. I mean, woah, I was doing really well there for a moment. Work has been busy (which, I’m loving by the way) and I’m still learning what it looks like to balance all of it. So forgive me, my faithful and dedicated readers!
This week I totally and completely fell for the comparison game. I looked at other blogs, social accounts, writers, and entrepreneurs and thought, “there’s just no way I can be like them. I should just give up.” I let that awful thought fester in my head until, well, right this moment. Even as I type out these words I feel these insecurities. I sit here, typing these words, knowing that I set a goal to publish a new blog entry every Tuesday and Friday…and it’s Thursday night and I have no idea what to write for the next morning. I feel emptied out. Tired. Feeling like I’m not going to make it.
Ever since I started setting three tasks for my day, I find that my evenings are starting to become stress-free. When I finally check off task number three, my body feels relaxed and I slump right into my nighttime routine. Yes my routine is simple, but I have found that by doing some of these simple things I am able to fall into a full night of incredible sleep, waking up the following morning actually feeling refreshed and ready for my day.
First, let me start off by saying that I absolutely had 100% no idea what to write today. Some days when it comes to my blog, I feel really good about the content that I produce to my readers. Other days I contemplate if anyone is actually listening, taking my advice, or even cares about what I do. I want to desperately serve you (even if that number of readership is small) and yet, still feel insecure about the fact that I do all of this work, hit the publish button, and just kind of hope someone is stumbling upon my work.
