i have this idea, this beautiful idea, that i am going to write and schedule all of my posts for the week ahead during the weekend (or on monday, the day i work from home). however, it remains just an idea. i do not seem to get it all done. for example, this past weekend/monday i was able to write my post that i posted on monday.
i was a bit disappointed in myself. not because i need to have such a strict schedule of when my blog posts come out, but because i just love to blog and write. i love to stay in contact with you. and with this schedule adjustment in my life which in moves working outside of my home 4 days I week, I thougt that scheduling posts would be a great solution to help balance it all out.
but, when i schedule things (i did so last week), then i don’t log into my website at all. and i love to read your blogs and interact with you regularly. plus, i love writing in the present, not only planning posts for the future. these are all things that inspire me, that keep me moving and focused and grounded. meditation/yoga is one great thing; but writing/photography is whole other way that i “find myself” on a daily basis.
so, not doing that regularly, trying to schedule and write ahead, just doesn’t feel right to me. at the same time, i literally have not found the energy yet to be able to sit down and write/blog during the week when i am away at work. i am being really patient with myself, but i am also missing the freedom i had to write and blog and photograph whenever i wanted. first world problems, i know.
all this means that i need to figure out a new system for how i keep up with everything. of course, it’s more than just figuring out a new system. it’s about staying inspired and connected to all of the things i love. it’s about just adding/keeping more amazingness in my life. poor me, right?
i know that it’s really all about priorities. whatever is most important to me, i will make time for. i will create space in my life, no matter what. i have successfully made mediation a part of my every morning routine. and i get up really early to make that happen. it’s just not feasible to write and blog in the mornings, though, on a regular basis since I begin work at 8. and i don’t want to bang out a post just for the hell of it. because… quality over quantity, right?
so, i’ll just keep giving myself some time and feeling my way through this.
i got ready pretty fast this morning, so i sat down and began typing this in the dark, with a candle flickering and the morning news in the background. it was cozy + quite spontaneous. in any case, i decided to share my thoughts and get them out. sending them out there to the universe, trusting this process of blanching + unfolding.
thanks for listening, dear readers. happy hump day out there!
