Life, to say the least, can be cruel. It can be kind and it can also be a rollercoaster of emotions, often difficult to navigate. We never know from day to day what will happen, because none of us are fortune tellers. As much as we would love to say we have it all figured out, it is just not possible.
Oh boy did I learn that in June! I thought I had the month all planned out. Things had been going good for most of the year and I had planned on it just being another productive and personally uneventful time, But boy was I wrong. Oftentimes things are out of our control and if you are like me, that can be scary. June 2nd – 5th I was in the hospital for a few reasons. Then on June 5th my father passed away and two weeks later my remaining grandfather passed away. Needless to say it sent my life into a spiral and things were, well, let’s just say less than productive or even close to normal for me. For those that know me you are well aware that I am a big planner. I love planning things, scheduling and just overall being as productive as I can. Always maximizing the time that I have, so that I can try to get as much quality work done as possible. With everything going on, and my life being upside down, I did something I don’t often do – take some time off of work and content creation. But I just couldn’t focus or put together quality work most days. I was not even motivated at all to do much of anything. So for those wondering, that is why I have been absent as of late and also i’ve been putting lots of time into Facebook page Content. Life is not quite back to where I want it to be, but I am pushing forward, starting to post again, working on my routine and trying to get back to life. I will say this because all of the pain, grief and loss I have experienced over the past month or so has really made me evaluate where I stand, the things I do in life and even how much I do for others. It has really opened my eyes to just how much I have been burning the candle at both ends and not really setting the best of boundaries to take care of myself. If you are anything like me and have a desire to help others, to just be a shining light in this weird and difficult world, I urge you to take the time to evaluate your life, position and the personal boundaries you have for yourself. Be sure to take care of yourself for real and not just say you are. But enough of my ramble, how has life been for all of you? What is new in your neck of the woods.
