I take on a lot at once, it is usually how I tend to thrive. Going from task to task, getting things done, checking things off my list. Lately, though, as I have been trying to focus on more meaningful work I have found myself overwhelmed by my usual tasks, and pressure to do things perfectly. It has been too much. I need to adjust my focus to what is most important. This blog is very important to me, but so is another big project I am working on. Mixing these two projects, with my full-time job, personal commitments and overall busyness of the holiday season has really worn me down. I have noticed change physically and emotionally. Already I have suffered from two colds this month. I am not producing the type of content I want to produce on my blog. I have not been editing my posts, I have not been reading as many articles as I’d like to. My head is not clear enough to fully learn everything I want to learn in order to make my other projects thrive. So this week, as you have probably noticed I did not write any thoughts or true stories. All that was found here were links. It took a lot for me to decide to only write when I felt up to it. When I felt inspired. When I felt I could do it right. And that is the decision I have made is to put my energy equally into things I care about, at least during this busy time when there is a lot important to me. Next week I will only be posting links, the week after I am taking a break. In the New Year, I look forward to sharing this blog with more people, and actually doing it how I want and dream to do it. So for now, this is my last writing of 2015. Wishing us all and abundance of prosperity, love, success, health and safety in 2016.
