Whilst taking a break from the blog I’ve been spending a lot of time doing things for me. Yes, the blog is my thing, but it does become quite stressful and tiring at times, especially when you push yourself to stick to a schedule that can be sometimes impossible, especially when your work schedule changes every week, sometimes at the last minute. I’ll admit I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to have three posts out per week.
I know I know. Getting up in the morning is hard. But come Winter it’s 500 times harder. Your bed is warm, it’s bitter outside and motivation is clearly lacking. But just because it’s the coldest time of year doesn’t mean life stops. These days should not be wasted! As hard as it is, I enjoy getting up early (even in Winter), because there are memories to be made and fun to be had.
This weekend I was a bad blogger, but let’s set the scene first. I work full time, in a very stressy environment. And it’s shift work, with weird start and finish times. I’m in a relationship, which is very important (obviously) and besides the blog stuff I have friends and things I want to do in my time off. So this weekend I was a bad blogger
I don’t know about you, but I used to struggle to get out of bed in the morning. I’d whinge, moan, shuffle around like a zombie and head into work feeling like the world was going to fall on my head. Negative much! But I soon realised if you start your day happy the rest will fall into place and it’ll make the day (and your life) easier for you, and those around you.
When was the last time you did something you were afraid of? I took the plunge yesterday and conquered a bit of a fear I’ve had for a long time – I took myself out for breakfast.
