Do you ever feel like you’ve lost control of your time? That you’ve let too many things creep onto your schedule and that the really important things are getting pushed aside?
You say yes and yes to more and more. Not bad things. Good things! But even good things can be a problem when they crowd out the best things.
When that happens to me, I know that it’s time to rest, breathe, reflect and pray. After over 2 years of posting 4-6 times a week, I am taking a blog-breather for the last 2 weeks of August.
Everyone who knows anything about blogging will tell me that I’m CRAZY! Kimba! You can’t just not post! You have to schedule posts ahead of time! You have to line up guest posters! You have to re-run posts from your archives! Otherwise, you’ll lose readers and the world will explode!
And they’re right (about everything but the exploding part). From a business perspective, it’s a terrible decision to just disappear for 2 weeks. But I’ve always operated under the philosophy of “It’s my blog and I’ll wreck if it I want to.”
Sometimes it’s better to do less so you can be more. And that’s what I’ll be doing for the next 2 weeks. Doing less. And being more.
If nothing else, I hope I can encourage you that sometimes it’s ok to take a step back. It’s ok to stop and catch your breath.
I do know myself and I’m sure I won’t be able to resist jumping on and sharing a few fun tidbits over the next couple of weeks. But I’m looking forward to recharging so that I can come back on Sept 1st and be re-energized and refreshed.
