Assessing Your Progress, Giving Your To-Do List A Run For Its Money
“This past week has undoubtedly been the most stressful I’ve had all year thus far, but with it came yet another handful of lessons that I’d find myself referencing later on down the line. Since I’ve been back, I haven’t found the time to keep up with the things I love, I had to alter my blogging schedule so that I could accommodate all that I needed to get done. It was hectic to say the least, but as time trudges on, it’s once again becoming easier to handle. For that, I’m most certainly grateful.”
Well, it definitely feels good to have a handle on things again. This time around, not much had been working in my favour as I desperately tried to stay afloat. Though, I can once again wake up without the stress of an impending to-do list that would inevitably drive me insane. I can finally get back to editing my novel this weekend (yes, the one I’ve been putting off for ages) as well as give myself some time to lose myself in a feel-good book (one I can’t wait to share my opinions on).
Sometimes we make a lot of good plans, a lot of good decisions, but we don’t cater to the idea that sometimes things might get a little too hectic. I took the step back I needed to get myself together before once again continuing to do all the things I love doing. There were a lot of things that I changed this month so that getting a hold on things would be easier, such as Tuesday blogging. As soon as February rolls around, I’m switching that back to Monday. I know that nothing makes me feel better and more productive than writing a post on here and following through with it, regardless of how repetitive it can all seem at times. Balancing life is always a challenge and there will be times when things will get in the way of all that we wish to accomplish. All I can say is take it in stride. Work hard at that goal of yours, things will fall into place.
“If I have to ask myself: When was the last time I wrote anything? Anything at all? Anything that made me feel happy, content, excited? Then I know that it’s time to re-evaluate my current situation. That is, by no means, a way in which I want to live. Writing will become part of my daily routine, and it doesn’t have to be extensive. I just want to be able to spend a little time, collect my thoughts, and turn it into something I’ll undoubtedly love for days to come.”
