I’m not totally sure that time-out is one word but it fits in with my theme for the week so I’m going with it. I don’t know what it is about this time of year but I always seem to lose motivation for things I normally love to do. This week instead of trying to plod along regardless I just decided to take some time-out.
I’ve not done any of the usual things I do like planning and writing blog posts, or even updating social media. The break has felt good and it’s given me time to have a good think about what direction I want to take this year where the blog is concerned.
The to-do lists have been left undone, and only the bare minimum of housework has been performed. Much to my surprise the world didn’t end.
I have spent my time indulging in reading, playing with the kids, catching up with the soaps and generally lounging about. As someone who usually thrives on being busy it’s been surprisingly easy to relax.
Of course now I’m itching to get back to it, but at least I know exactly what I need to do when it all gets a bit too much.
