Last week was just one of those weeks where I wasn’t inspired. I couldn’t get into the groove of anything. Whether it was work/blogging/homework, I was barely pushing through, but I felt stuck. I was moving, yet not nearly as productive as wanted to be.
My blogging schedule got all out of whack, I was exhausted, and I just couldn’t stay on track. Friday, I took a personal day and this past weekend I was able to get back into my groove.
Sometimes I really just need to take a step back and relax. I wasn’t completely unproductive on Friday, but I was able to chill and gather my thoughts. I planned out my weekend and while I have my planner, sometimes I just have to write it all down.
Sometimes I just need to stop overthinking life.
Sometimes I just need to not sweat the small stuff.
Sometimes I need to take my own advice and live in the moment instead of trying to document every little thing.
Sometimes I need those personal days for that extra jolt.
Saturday and Sunday were spent recording videos and redecorating my bedroom. I spent time working from 9am – 11pm both days and I couldn’t feel better. Taking that step back on Friday allowed me to get back to what I love to do, creating, by the weekend.
I was stuck trying to figure out content. I was stuck with my job search. I was stuck trying to take in everything with 3 classes left until I get my MBA. Stuck trying to figure it all out. It’s easy to burn yourself out that way.
While I was able to create this weekend new content for the blog that covers the rest of April, I was also able to catch up. When there’s a lot on your plate, it’s easy to gal behind. I can now wake up Monday and not have to worry about what I’m posting or the assignment that’s due. It’s all done.
Sometimes that little break helps you get ahead.
