As you all know we took a pause to work through the many transitions that we were experiencing in our personal lives. As much as I enjoyed this time to regroup, refresh, and reorganize. I am trying to get myself going again. It seems I have lost a little positive momentum, focusing on how unproductive I am in one aspect of my life. That feeling of unproductiveness has hurt my confidence and put a toll on my productivity. I am going to be as transparent as possible through this blog. We all have moments of insecurity but most are afraid to admit it. At this point, I need to stop the negative momentum before I can start working toward rebuilding. I was wondering if I should have taken the break. The what if’s were filling my brain (hello anxiety). But I am done beating myself up about something I can’t change, the time away was more than needed. My mental space is a priority.
Noticing a Change
I am starting to notice that momentum has a profound effect on willpower and productivity. I have noticed that when I took a break from writing it’s a lot harder to start writing again. Similar to stopping any activity like working out or eating healthy it’s always harder to get going again. For now, I am going to start small and take it a day at a time. Trying to jump right back into my old routine without a warm-up seems impossible. The confidence I will get just from writing this first post will help me prepare for the larger task.
Getting Back on Track
I am ready to get all my activities and business ventures back in full effect. This is starting to feel like August again, trying to get back into my fall routine. The only difference is my fall routine is thriving and my business schedule is failing. It’s time for me to transition from barely juggling to organized. In all honesty, when I have a lot on my plate, organization is my key to balance. It’s important to know that sometimes when you take a break it’s impossible to pick up where you left off. For the past month, my day to day routine has been so focused on my personal life that I can’t even remember how I balanced it all. Trying to get my writing schedule, personal development, and event schedule back in tack has been challenging. So, rather than keep heading in the wrong direction. I am creating a 21-day schedule to slowly build upon my momentum to my pre-pause level.
I will be sharing my 21-day schedule with you next week. I haven’t really gotten that far in the process, I just know it’s time. Wish me luck!
