Whoa Nelly! Now that's a wordy post, for serious!
Do I have any idea what I'm going to talk about today? Nope. Is that okay? Yup. Did you know that I write my posts the day that they publish? I write them in the morning when the mood hits. If I don't write it's because I'm either really busy and don't have enough time or I'm just not inspired.
Pretty much like yesterday. I went to see the counselor at my college to figure out what classes I need to be taking next. I made the drastic decision of changing my major to Business. Not my passion, I know. Not my forte, either, but it's what I know. It's what I've been doing for the last 15 or so years in the work world. So, there it is in a nutshell. I'm getting a degree that will actually help me more in my job. I figured that I know my passion is writing, but I can do that here. Also, I don't really believe you need a formal education to be a writer. Life experience and getting out there in the real world - I think that makes a fabulous writer.
Oh, so I go to the counselor right? I have 32 or so units under my belt and if I go full-time for the next two semesters, I could transfer to one of the universities I want. But, um, that means I'd have to go to school full-time, work full-time, mother and wife full-time plus have enough time to get studying in and family time. Um, no. I'm just going to take classes as I can - slow and steady wins the race. That will now and forever be my motto for my college career. I'll graduate, for sure...just in my timing without any anxiety attacks or nervous breakdowns.
After my morning appointment at the college, I was off to work and well, that's what happens. Work trumped blogging. Lunch did, too. Dinner as well. I wasn't even on social media much yesterday (what?!). The world didn't end. No one made a fuss that I wasn't here or on instagram or FB. That's awesome.
No, really. See, the way I see it our lives need to come first. That's what gives us material for our blogs. Living life. Being in the moment. Being in it to win it. So, if you are a blogger (duh!), don't ever feel guilty for not be "on" all the time. Sometimes we need a break. Perfectly okay.
Actually, it's awesome. You be you. All else will fall into place. Kind of like that new motto...
Take it one step at a time. Slow and steady wins the race (wink).
Longest PS in the history of this blog - lol!
