You’re Only Human

I haven’t been writing on my blog, and I feel really guilty about it.

Every week I have the intention to sit down at the beginning of the week and write a blog post. Every week I start something, and I don’t finish it. I want to write for this blog. I want to create new content and redesign this thing and make it a place that I would want to visit myself.

I want to do these things, but they just aren’t at the top of my priority list right now. The top of my priority list is: Getting enough sleep, taking care of myself, and writing the next draft of my book.

I want this to be something I do every week, but it doesn’t always work out that way.

And that’s okay.

This year has absolutely been a year in learning how to let things go. Understanding that I can’t be in control of absolutely everything and that it’s okay to be working full-time and saving money and utilizing every spare minute I can find to work on my book. I have a lot on my plate. It’s only realistic that I can’t always manage all of it.

I’ll come here as much as I can, and I’ll be back on a regular basis before too long. I absolutely will be. But for right now, there are other priorities in my life that continue to come first. That’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. I’ll be back to weekly posts before I even know it. I have so many things I want to write about.

And I am not going to beat myself up about it, because life happens. And it’s okay to be human.

I hope you can be kind to yourself this week, too. Just remember that you can’t do it all, you’re not superhuman, and it’s okay if something falls behind for a little while. You’re still moving forward, you’re still working hard, and everything will come back around.
