If this year of Covid has taught me anything, it's that we need to take a close look at how we prioritize our time. Where you spend the most time should reflect what is most important to you. If it doesn't, then something might need to change!
I went through this year in sort of a daze. I was struggling to be the best of everything. I didn't want anything to drop. Determined to keep everything as normal as possible, I became the mom of all trades, master of none. No one got the best of me, and I have felt constantly behind and overwhelmed. Though I have put an effort into self-care, I realized over time that it was still insufficient. And why did I put myself through this? Because I believed that the situation was temporary. I was just holding out until it ended.
Here's what I've realized: temporary or not, I need to create a lifestyle that makes me feel happy and successful. I can't hold every plate in the air! So, I've been mulling this over in the back of my mind over the last few weeks. I haven't fully come to a conclusion, but I know that I will be focusing the most of my mental and physical energy on taking care of my family. I can't be a busy entrepreneur at the same time. This just isn't working for me.
So, one thing I have concluded is that I will be posting things when I have time and feel up to it. I'm not going to hold myself to any schedule. I wasn't really keeping a schedule anyway, but I had one and was failing at it. I am not going to suffer the failure any longer. I'm making a choice to prioritize my time differently.
As a family, we've pulled in tighter together over the last year, and I'm not sad about that. I'm embracing that fact and encouraging our continued closeness and team mindset. I'm proud of everything that I do share here, and you can know that I've put my whole heart and attention into every single post or project.
