It’s been a minute since my last post. So sorry about that. I don’t really have an excuse. I’ve just been a little off my game this summer. It took me by surprise, because dedication and diligence are things about myself I almost take for granted. They’re just a part of who I am. But this summer, getting posts out has been a challenge for me.
I decided to write about it here because I actually think putting these kinds of struggles out in the open helps to build connections. I fell vulnerable admitting it, but maybe some of you have hit the same kind of rut before? If so, please share! I’d love to hear how you worked through it.
In the meantime, I decided that I simultaneously need to do a better job of sticking to my goals – regaining that elusive self-control – and that I also need to do a better job of forgiving myself when I fall off track. Sometimes even reminding myself that most of my to-dos fall under the category of goals I’ve made helps. These are all things I think will help me or others, and I’ve previously decided are worth it. They’re not just tasks for the sake of tasks. I find giving myself that reminder to be calming and helpful.
One of the other problems I’m currently facing is that for each timeline I miss, I pile on more to-dos. I think starting this week I’m going to try to back off that a little bit, and make myself a few more bite-sized to-dos. So for starters, I’m just going to think about next week, and next week my goal is to post on Monday and Thursday. There. You guys can help me stick to it.
Sorry for the delay and thanks for working through this one with me. I so appreciate each and every one of you who visit this site and read my posts! Have a great week!!
