Do you ever hit that point where life just feels so overwhelming that you need to take a step back to evaluate and breathe?

I recently did, and if you follow this blog at all, then you’ll now that the blog took the biggest hit.

Life hasn’t been overwhelming in a negative sense. In fact, it’s been the complete opposite. But with the photography season picking up and work being quite busy, I needed to step back and re-focus. I needed to think about my goals and look at time management. I needed to find ways to devote time all of the things I love, without over extending myself and burning out.

So that’s exactly what I did. I stepped back and took a breather.

And in taking this breather, I realized that the only person putting the pressure on me, was me. And what I found was that I missed writing. I missed my little corner of the web. And while it was the first to be pushed to the back, I’ve also realized it probably takes up the least amount of time in my day, especially if I pre-plan my content.

My photography takes up a good bit of my free time, and I always make time for it because I love it.

This breather allowed me to realize that this blog is an extension of me and I need to make time for this too. It’s also allowed me to refocus and recharge, and I’m ready to write.

Have you ever just needed to step back and take a breather?

  1. Definitely! Sometimes it is blogging and other times it is housework… Seriously though, sometimes I say aloud that I need to blog or I should blog and my husband says it sounds like I feel stressed about it and that if it stresses me that I shouldn’t do it.

    1. Yes! I totally hear you. I’m the same way. If I start worrying too much about my next blog post, then I know I’m stressing too much and it’s not worth it. :)
