I’ve written the following post yesterday night after a full day following a 3 hour night sleep. I’m publishing it unedited except for typos.
Ok, so I’m gonna get real with you and share my thoughts with you as they come. After launching this blog last november during the 30 Day Challenge I felt like I had finally made it. I had been wanting to help people like you and me figure out their own path for so many years it was exhilirating to think I had taken the first steps and I would reach my goal at last.
I felt the thrill and buzz of novelty. I felt like I had faced my fears and was doing it. Honestly I kind of did. It is a huge step I’ve taken. I’m proud of it. But really struck me right in the face when I realised I was hitting a wall. What wall? This internal barometer I have telling me oh oh, something’s not right. I had done everything by the book. I created a blog. Had zillions ideas of things I could do to promote it, get myself out there, organizing workshops, starting coaching, e courses, etc. I started fumbling with twitter, created a mailing list, created a facebook page and even paid to publicize it. It was thrilling to see the number of likes on the page more than double in less than a week, which means I know have more people I don’t know that symbolically said “I like what you’re saying!” and it’s great.
But then, it hit me. I realised I’m overstretched and overwhelmed. I had said to myself from the start I would publish twice a week, a sustainable rythm considering how many projects I’m juggling at the moment. But at the moment I’m so tired I can’t focus. So I could put out two quickly written stuff this week, to stick to my schedule but I won’t.
I’m gonna hit the pause button (yes I found it!) and recharge. So sorry guys, there won’t be any new post this week nor for the next two weeks since I will be enjoying long overdue holidays and I’ll be back at the end of the month with a lot more energy and my two weekly posts.
I still have a lot of great stuff to share with you so this blog is definitely not dead, but sometime you must take a step back, recognize your limits and recharge.
So thank you for reading this far and if you want to tell me what you’re up to or would be interested to see next on this blog, please leave a comment or send me a message via the contact form on my about page.
Talk to you soon.
