I want to start off by apologizing for missing a post last week. My plans were to post last weekend so I had more time to come up with something really special… But then I got food poisoning last Friday night and was out of it for the rest of last weekend. Never get a gyro from a diner, that’s all I’m saying! So either this weekend or sometime next week I will be doing an extra post to make up for the one I missed. I’m being pretty hard on myself for it because I’ve been doing so well at it, but there was no way I could have known I’d get sick like that.
Besides getting food poisoning, I’ve been dealing with a lot of emotional things, both good and bad. And truth be told, I almost quit being a writer- blog post on that to come- and after some encouraging comments from the people in my life, I have decided to keep going… But with a lot of hesitation and self-doubt. I know some of you might read this and think this isn’t something I should be confessing, but we all have moments of self-doubt throughout our lives. I feel like if I denied having that moment of self-doubt then I would feel even worse about myself because I would feel like I was hiding or ashamed. And while I’m not happy I experienced that self-doubt, it’s a part of the process and I accept that. It happened and all I can do is move on from there.
There are also a lot of changes that are on the horizon and I’m aware of that, maybe too aware of that and it’s messing with my mind a bit. Though I have gotten better with a lot of things, the roughness of this week knocked me down a bit and let some of those things back in. But I’m working on building myself back up and resuming my path as planned.
So if there any upcoming blog posts you would like to see from me, please let me know! I am always open to suggestions and constructive criticism. Have a great day everyone!
