Friday check in

Do you ever have one of those weeks? Like, a full doozy of a week where it feels like everything that could go wrong has actually gone wrong? That’s what this week was like for me. We got back late from my BFF’s wedding in New York and I’ve just been scrambling to get stuff done ever since. Then all the annoying little stuff popped up: taxes, needing a new lawnmower, etc. I feel like I’m doing so much stuff… just not well. And that’s driving me crazy. If anything, I’m an overachiever, through and through.

After many tears, I realized one thing: I need to slow down. I can’t do it all.

I made a tough call this week: I’m not going to post to the blog every weekday. I just can’t. I want to create amazing content for you guys and, all too often, it feels like I HAVE to post… which results in publishing posts of which I’m not totally proud. I hate that feeling. Instead, I want the posts to be rich and meaningful, well-written and informative. I’m vowing to only post the good stuff from here on out — I hope you’ll continue to love it! My hope is that by focusing on fewer-but-better, I’ll finally have some time to really work on the stuff that I’m super passionate to share.

Have a great weekend!
