If you’ve been visiting this blog over the last few weeks, you’ll see I’ve been wrestling with some issues. Things in my life have been getting overwhelming and I had been focusing too much on what I consider “busy work” as a way to cope.
Normally in this situation, I do a reset and things get back on track. However, not this time. Because technically, this time was different in many ways.
Okay, so last Friday I talked about doing a reset. That’s where you clear your metaphorical chessboard and start again.
I’ve heard from several writer friends both in the comments and in emails, how they are starting to feel overwhelmed, bogged down and generally not in a great place. So, it definitely seems like I’m not the only one feeling it.
How often do you feel there just aren’t enough hours in the day? We cram our days full of chores, work, errands, family, projects not to mention sleeping, eating, etc and if we’re lucky we managed to find some time to chill or do fun activities.
Well, recently I’ve felt like all I do is work. Housework, business work, paperwork, blog work, marketing work… and it’s been getting me down.
When that happens, I usually try and step back and take stock. So here’s me…stock taking.
I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed with all the changes that have been happening. For those of you who’ve followed this blog for a while, you know I have severe anxiety and one of the triggers is ‘change’.
I’ve received some very supportive comments and messages that have helped. It reminded me just how incredible the Blogging and Writing community are.
So I thought I’d do another “Let’s Connect” post.
Since today’s question on my Twitter Game #TheMerryWriter asked “Do you keep a diary or journal?” I thought I’d discuss that in my blog.
By the way, if you’re on Twitter and looking to meet other writers, and haven’t already, do check out my game.
Myself and my co-host, Rachel Poli post daily questions and the participants are wonderfully supportive and encouraging of each other and the game can help you build your network 🙂
The current “Game Board” is pinned to the top of my feed if you’d like to check it out.
The bucket list is a simple concept. What do you want to have done in your life before you “kick the bucket?”
I’ve talked about Bucket Lists before, but today I thought I’d do something special and share mine (well some of it).
I am taking a mini break from Monday Marketing just for this week (don’t worry, it will be back next week) as it is a year and a day since I moved to Northern Ireland. So this post is about looking back on that year.
Okay, TECHNICALLY my 5th Blogiversary is on Sunday 1st July 0but since I don’t post on Sunday’s I’m putting this here! 😀 In fact, as well as being my Blogiversary, this post is also my 300th post! *woohoo*
As you probably guessed from the title, this is not a Monday Marketing post. I have shifted my topic to Mental Health today, because it’s something I need to talk about.
