Today marks officially two weeks since i put something up here but trust you me, it has been one of the longest, busiest and least comfortable two weeks of my life! I had been under the weather and making a post was the least of my concern. We are currently experiencing a very unpredictable weather which is totally to blame! One minute it`s extremely chilly and the next hour the skies are blue and the sun is shining! But i am more than glad to be back… I seriously realized in this period of time that i wasn`t here, that blogging is really what i love doing! With that being said, Hello my lovely readers! I trust y`all doing good and right!
Since i started working, i have been in a constant struggle in finding out the right balance between blogging, taking care of my family and work! This has led me to procrastinate so many things in my life right now, something i`m not really proud of! I knew from day one when i started this journey that i surely needed to find time and resources for it. What i didn`t know is how challenging this would be, (sigh!). After doing some reflection, i have concluded that having a good plan (blogging schedule) is key to what will help me keep me focused on topics that i plan to share with my readers…..
This brings me back again when i started blogging…. I always had a notebook with me in my bag something which was of big help whenever i had ideas of future blog posts. I used it to jot down notes and i would sometimes write an entire post in my notebook then when i had time at the computer, i just transfer the content. Somewhere along the line, i completely lost track of it and i guess it`s time to put this into practise again.
I have realized that putting pressure on myself won`t help me in any way. The feeling of letting go of things i can`t control is sometimes the best option. There will be days when i won`t end up blogging for some reason or another. But i am planning to use every single opportunity i have to create good content not only for you, but personally also for me as well. As much as i would love to see me grow as a brand, at the end of the day the love of my family and for God is far more important. This includes setting boundaries in my life and not puting on myself more pressure than i can handle.
I am still in the process of learning the importance of writing things down with an intention of making it happen. Sometimes it may not happen the way i want it to happen but one thing for sure is that if i put some effort on it, i believe that it will surely happen. All i need to have is faith and believe that i am capable of doing it! The Bible says that faith without action is dead. I can believe and believe but if i don`t put action behind it, it would be of no good! It`s all about putting some action behind the words and behind the vision boards and giving it all your best.. After all you can only reap what you have sowed, right??
This is definitely a wake up call for me, but i also hope it has been of help to someone out there. We all have ambitions. All we need to do is to take one step everyday, every week, every month towards making that dream of ours turn into a reality 🙂 Maybe at first it won`t be much, but it will surely be enough. One thing for sure is that it will be worth making the time for it. After all, if you don`t find the time to make it happen, who else is going to do it for you??
Wishing you all a beautiful and fruitful week muffins!!
