I came to the realization that I’m trying to do too much at once with this blog. Creating content that I enjoy and hope that others enjoy isn’t an easy task. At the end of the day if I’m happy with something that’s all that really matters, right? There is so much that I want to do and want to accomplish in a short period of time, that I find myself rushing to the end result without figuring out the important details in the middle.
Look, I’m not out for overnight success and that’s not what this is about. But I want me content, 5 days a week to speak to something. I had a huge reality waking moment this morning at 5:30am. Not because of my mind racing with ideas (which does happen from time to time) but Ava was awake and thus started my morning of checking emails and getting things done. I sent over my Wednesday post to Julia and let’s just say she called me out on my shit. I tried changing too much at once and she felt it. In that moment I realized I had to stop, refocus, and start with small baby steps. So the post you read on Wednesday will be re-worked and you may never know that it was any different. But that’s what this process is about.
Part of me is super hyped up because I finished #GIRLBOSS over the weekend. My god, the energy I have and motivation that is in my veins is ridiculous. I want it all. I want to do it all. And I want to do it all NOW. That’s just my personality, though. I like to get shit done and move on to the next thing. When creating Wednesday’s post last night (on Sunday) I had all of these great ideas, mashing things together, changing how the Must Have posts would look. venturing into new territory only to realize it probably wasn’t the smartest decision. Hey, that’s what friends are for right? To call you out on your shit when you are not in the right lane at the right time. Even if you want to do it all like Sophia Amoruso.
I don’t want to be a sell out and I don’t want to create things I’m not happy with, and you’re not happy with. Heck I may have been happy with the post I created but knowing that a friend and reader didn’t seem to get it was a smack in the face to back off and not to reinvent the wheel.
It’s definitely a Monday!
