Hey guys. As I was sitting down to write this post an avalanche of unfiled paperwork came crashing down on top of me (literally) and it only served to reinforce what I was going to write about.
I've seen all over blogland the whole concept of One Word. This year, I really want my word to be "Grow" and not just for the blog but for me too. One of my biggest challenges has been time management and so I've been taking some time to sift through my systems and schedules and well, feeling pretty crappy about the lack of a routine.
So in order to "Grow" I need to do something counter intuitive and well, stop. I do not lack ideas for the blog and for our apartment, but I feel like I have too many irons in the fire right now. Between housewifing, tutoring and running now two blogs, I feel like I need to regroup a little bit and get myself (and my house) in working order so that I can focus on all the things I want to do. I always find myself lamenting that I don't have enough time but the truth is I have just as much time as anyone else. I just don't seem to be using it very well.
So I'm taking a break from blogging for a week, a week and a half tops. Hubby will still be running the new cooking blog and I'll be working behind the scenes here, I just won't be posting. I'll be tweaking the blog, getting organized at home and setting up a work schedule that will (hopefully) serve me better. And serve my readers better.
I'm also (upon my return sometime next week) going to be starting a series on Time Management and Scheduling. You deserve to organize your time. You deserve time for yourself. So do I. I just never seem to actually make time for the things I love and want to do. So we'll learn all of this together.
I hope you don't mind my break. Something just had to give so I could focus and get my house in order. My house being my actual house, the business of blogging, and my tutoring schedule. Hey I'm even going to try and get a buffer of posts ready so that I can breathe a bit.
Sometimes in order to move forward, you have to stop moving and take a look around.
I'll see you next week!
