The last three weeks have been something else! I’ve fallen behind in posting, creating content and using my time wisely. Here is what I know about myself, when I fall behind and lose focus, sometimes it’s hard to regain my footing.
I found myself whining about not having enough time, yes whining. Now I will say this, my corporate job demands an usual chunk of my time, sometimes excessive.
Anyone who works a desk job knows how you feel after a 10 or 12 hour work day! You don’t want to see another computer screen or talk on another phone.
The time I did have left in the day I used for my family, cooking dinner, doing homework with the kids and….sleeping. I then began to get discouraged because I was spending less and less time on what I love doing, creating and writing! Then that turned into a pity party for one and a shitload of excuses. Who’s been there?
“Procrastination is the thief of time” ~ Edward Young
What did I do to pull myself out?
- Stopped making excuses
- Created a timeline to better manage my time (sometimes it’s poor time management and NOT lack of time)
- Used that beautiful planner I bought to map out my life and creating content
Facing facts and admitting things to yourself isn’t always easy, especially the areas where we’re struggling. This week I looked in the mirror and gave myself a pep talk! I said, “Sis, get your shit together.” Short and to the point! It comes down to, how bad do you really want it? Sometimes you have to encourage yourself and be your own motivation.
Today, get up and do that thing you’ve been putting off! “What you do today can improve all of your tomorrows.” ~ Unknown
Until next time…🦋
