I fell off y’all.
I’ve been crazy busy and I fell off.
And what I’ve learned during these last 14 days that I failed to grace you with my presence …
is that I need y’all just as much as y’all
need … well at least enjoy hearing from me.
You see, I let the stresses of being a grown up take me away from what I WANT to do. I let it trick me into thinking I didn’t want to do this … at least until I was finished with what I had on my plate for this year.
And that’s how I fell off.
For the last 14 days, I’ve been stressing over how I’m going to get Christmas done for the kids. Hell, stressing over doing my absolute best to be a great mom so the amount of time my kids spend on a therapists couch over things I do is minimal. LOL
I also decided to pursue a professional certification. I mean, I have to secure that 9-to-5 bag too, after all. But it’s kicking my ass.
I’m also gearing up to apply for a writing program (hopefully, there will be much more on that soon).
Then there’s my business plan for 2019 …
and I’m working full time …
and I’m still playing Picasso in the late night hours …
and I’m trying to balance relationships …
making a concerted effort to get my fluffy ass on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day …
at being an adult.
Shit, I’m out of breath just thinking about it all.
But while I was so busy running, I momentarily forgot about one of the things I enjoy. And that’s purging the lessons I learned in the week with you all. Preparing for this blog starts long before my keys touch the keyboard. I take my time figuring out what to write, putting things into perspective, and trying to make it as cohesive of a thought as I possibly can.
And while I thought I was taking time to get my shit together outside of this space, my shit was kind of falling apart without this space. (Clearly not earth shattering magnitude, but I would hope by now, you get my flair for dramatics.)
So what did I learn this week?
That sometimes, it’s OK to be just where you are, even if that means taking your eyes off the prize for a bit.
And sometimes, what you think is a distraction, could actually be one of your biggest allies.
Now let me log off, so I can study for this test. LOL
Oh, and SUPER HUGE shouts to everyone that hit me during the last few weeks asking me about the blog. I probably talked your ear off about my adulthood induced stresses and I ‘preciate ya for listening.
Until NEXT WEDNESDAY, folks!
Love and Light,
What did you say?
You miss me when I’m gone?
Well, you know you can keep up with my antics every other day of the week:
