Well hello there strangers! I have been missing for quite some time I know! I decided to go ahead and take a week off from blogging, although I did still read some posts when I had time, so why did I quit? Well like you all have said before sometimes it is hard to really get a grip and balance on life versus blogging, I mean after all it can be quite time consuming between writing, taking pictures, placing pictures in, setting up all the links and what not. I felt like I was losing my balance and when you lose your balance what better to do than just take a step back and reevaluate. Taking some time off I did really learn some things! I thought they would be helpful for all of you so I’m going to tell ya about them!
1. Taking a break helped me refocus my efforts. Yes I love blogging and yes I love writing but this is the bottom of priorities right now in my life. I have no intentions of making this into a business of some sorts, so it right now anyways is just a hobby. I needed to refocus on what I need to focus on today, finding a job, moving into my house, and really working on myself to find myself and where I fit in and what exactly I want to do with my skills and talents.
2. Be more social. I haven’t been the most social person as of lately. With all the job applying and stressing I haven’t taken time to get out and about (ok it has been hard with my two besties being on vacation the past two weeks). But I need to focus more on my social life starting now, making new friends yes but more importantly connecting with my old friends that I already have established relationships with.
3. This is the most important one but I need to work on my way of thinking of my life on a schedule. I don’t have to work out before work if I feel like sleeping. I don’t have to write a WIAW every Wednesday or a TOL every Thursday or even write a blog post every week. When I feel like doing these things I will and when I really just don’t I won’t.
With that being said you will probably see a lot less posting from me. Not because I don’t love you guys and this community but because I need to be out experiencing life more instead of typing up a post that I really and honestly just don’t feel like getting to all the time. I mean it is summer now right!
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and get out there and enjoy life how and when you want to!
