I’m hoping to break the recent cycle of my only posting when having a photo shoot to share. I’ve actually been thinking on this for awhile–feeling constantly overwhelmed with all the things I “need” to do everyday. So much of it seems to be online! Stressing myself out over how many Instagram followers I have, making Facebook posts interesting, remembering to post to Tumblr regularly, posting here more than once in a blue moon, changing up all my Pinterest boards (and posting to THAT regularly), wondering if I really DO need to get on Twitter.
I don’t want to live my life all stressed out over such silly things–even though they mean the success (or failure) of my business on a certain level. I don’t want to drop any of them–I really love each platform for different reasons. I love feeling connected, and getting to see what other people are up to out there in this wide world.
So I’ve decided to schedule my week better–and this includes regular posting over here, as well as a Garden Day each week, which I’m REALLY looking forward to. My poor garden is languishing, with only some fennel and one chard plant that made it through the winter. I haven’t even BEGUN to get the spring garden going–AND IT’S ALREADY SPRING.
So, the new schedule started this week, and it’s a raving success as of Day Two! lol.
I’ve been busier than ever this year with orders–and that amazes me every day! All the hard work is starting to pay off! But it means less time to create NEW things. Less time to grow food and flowers. Less time to get on the treadmill or the bicycle. Less time to just……BE.
I love what I do, and I love my life–I just want to be a little more relaxed through it all. 😉
We’ll see how it goes–I’m prone to STARTING THINGS!, and then kind of…..fizzling out on them. I think that’s normal?
