Monday Motivation

by - August 07, 2017

If you're like me, your body lets you know when you're doing too much. For me it's stuff like acne breakouts, trouble sleeping, and an unsettled stomach. Admitting that I need a break is easy, but taking one isn't always simple. But when I'm feeling unfocused, stretched thin, cranky and at my wits' end, I know I need to scale back. Unfortunately for this blog, it's often the first thing that gets cut, as you all saw last week. I've been struggling to write anything and have several posts in varying stages of progress just waiting for me to finish them, and I promise one day I will. It just probably won't be this week...and maybe not next week either. My schedule is all over the place right now, and I'm not willing to sacrifice what little sleep I'm actually getting for the sake of a blog post. So even though I'm sort of "back" this week, I'm also still kind of "taking a break" from big posts until I get back steady on my feet and feel like my mental health is at 100% again. But until then...

Happy Monday!
