Lately I’ve been a bit neglective toward my blog and social media, for a number of reasons.
I’m not ashamed to say that I go through phases in my (I must stress this) personal life where I can only focus on a very few amount of things, at any one time.
This is one such time.
I’m getting to the end of my work contract and always find job hunting a very stressful process. Total opposite to Dan, it doesn’t phase him – at all. Me? It turns me into a nervous wreck. But that is not my issue today.
Before I can even get into the job hunting process; I have to perfect my CV. And ‘bigging myself up’ is something that I always struggle with; so this has taken a while, meaning that there hasn’t been much time for anything else.
…And although there hasn’t been much time for anything else…in my mind…in reality there probably has been.
I get up at 6am for a run, do all my morning bits and get to work for 8:30am. I then finish at 4:30pm each day. There’s a long time in my evenings in which I could get things done, however, not a lot has been getting done recently.
If I’m not stressing myself over job stuff, I’m berating myself for not keeping on top of my social media, or keeping the flat clean and tidy, or making the most of the sunshine outside, or reading my thousands of magazines and books that are forever piling higher – the list just goes on, you get the idea.
So do you know what I do? Nothing. It’s easier to just sit on the sofa trying to absorb myself in whatever is on the TV, with Dan and our rabbit Dora, blocking out all the other things I know I should be doing.
But tonight I wanted to change that, to pull myself myself out of this slump.
And what better way to begin than with my blog? Since my blog is about whatever is currently happening in my life, I thought I’d let you all in on just that!
This evening I have (possibly) finished updating my CV, tidied the flat, watched some of the World Cup, written this very blog you are reading now, I will attempt to get back into the rest of my social media – Twitter Instagram and Pinterest, I will maybe read a bit also, and I’ve been enjoying having the balcony door open to let in some of the summer air that is happening outside.
And boy do I feel better already! Let’s keep this up.
What about you lovely people? Are you fighting off a slump at the moment? Just got over one? Let me know .x.
