So I decided to take a break from blogging…sort of a mini vacation to get my life in order (I know I’ve only been blogging for like two seconds, but hear me out lol). Problem is the break was only supposed to be for the month of July, but next thing I know its October! I’m still trying to figure out how four months have passed.
It’s funny how nowadays there seems to never be enough hours in the day or enough days in a week. Between all my obligations, responsibilities, and goals I’ve honestly had zero time to flesh out my personal interests or utilize all my gifts to their full potential. Constantly drowning in the struggles of adulting without going crazy is an art form that drains every piece of you mentally, physically, and emotionally. Even though I was able to get away for a few days, somehow work followed me.
I thought stepping back from my passions would help me get things in order, so I could truly devote my time to them later, but to be honest stepping back has only given me the excuse to neglect them in favor of comfort and laziness. Procrastination has become the thorn in my side that holds me hostage each passing day to things that don’t truly edify my soul.
So as Aunty Maxine says, I’m “Reclaiming My Time!” lol
I know the stresses and responsibilities will never go away, but I’ve got to remember to make time for the things I love, explore the gifts God has given me, and most importantly make time for myself.
