“Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang … Let it go…” that’s how I start playing the Let It Go song from Frozen. I play the piano with a lot of anger and emotion when I feel stressed out and overwhelmed. I really get into the music and get lost in playing the song. Luckily for me I have this outlet to help calm and relax myself.
Lately I’ve been putting extra pressure on myself to create a backlog of stories to post for this blog. And frankly, I don’t think I’ve fully recovered from launching the blog. This entire process is like doing a website launch for any corporate company and once it’s launched maintaining the blog is a lot of work as well. The social media piece is another job in itself.
Like I’ve said before, I’m a workaholic and can easily get caught up in my work. I know I’m not getting paid to run a blog but I take pride in my work and love what I do. If you could get inside my brain, it is filled with ideas that want to come out to the point of exploding. Even at night, my brain can’t stop thinking.
So for now, if you don’t see a daily post from me it’s because I need to “Let It Go” and focus on other activities that don’t involve my laptop, tablet, or phone. In the end, I want blogging to be fun. So when I get motivated to write, I will blog.
Initially, I setup the blog posts like a business where all the posts/stories are scheduled out. I even have a digital editorial calendar with all the blog stories I want to write about. I had to remind myself that I’m not running a business, I’m just doing this for fun. I also have to remind myself what’s important to me and spending time with my family is the most important thing of all.
It really is difficult keeping your life balanced. I enjoy running and maintaining this blog but I have to be careful from that part of my life from spilling into my family life. If I’m getting upset at my husband because I’m grouchy from not getting enough sleep, that’s a warning sign for me that something is wrong. I’ve been seeing these signs this past week and so I have to do something about it.
That’s what’s nice about life. Every day you get a chance to do something different. For me, I know what improvements I need to make in my life and try my best to JUST DO IT. You have the opportunity to change every day and it’s up to you if you want to make a change in your life.
I believe I’m a self-motivated person and I always strive to be the best version of myself. When I see I’m moody and grouchy I know that I’m doing something wrong. So the next day I strive to do things to help bring balance in my life so everyone is happy, including myself. I want to be happy being the best wife, mother, and be happy with what I do on the computer.
I’m thankful that I have family and friends as an outlet to help me sort stuff in my overstuffed brain. So to those special people in my life, I want to say thanks for being there for me. 🙂
