Welcome back for episode 03 of What I’m Working On*! This weekend we’ve got a fantastic interview with Kristin of My Life as Teacup! We had too much fun filming this episode in a very unique and unexpected location. If you missed last month’s WIWOs you can check out my intro episode and my interview with Angelica of Gardening in High Heels.
Today’s episode is packed with some really good commentary on balancing life/work/blogging, accepting where you are right now (and not comparing it to where you want to be), and some great book suggestions.
Before we hop into today’s episode, I’ll give a brief update on what I’m working on:
On the Blog
If you read my recent newsletter (I’ve linked it for you lovely readers here, but if you’d like to receive them in your inbox, you can sign up here), then you know why the blog has kind of taken the back seat recently. I’m working on getting back into the swing of things and hopefully starting to feel more motivated again. I have an eBook that is itching to be completed, too! There are so many things I need to reevaluate right now, and AC is one of them and I’m excited to see where I will go next with it.
As someone who typically sees things with a pair of rosy pink glasses, I have to admit: things are pretty damn crappy right now. And when chaos ensues, my first instinct is to try and tame at least one aspect so I feel at least somewhat in control. So far, that has proved rather fruitless and so I’m learning to give myself a break and just be. It’s been really overwhelming and really difficult for me, but I’m doing my best. Right now, I’m just in need of a lot of support and grace. As a result, I’ve decided to do something just for myself and I’m taking a trip to San Diego (where my Aunt Sandy lives) to get away in just a few weeks! I am so grateful that she’s willing to host me and I cannot wait to bask in the sunshine away from everything. Baby steps to healing and growing. New goals will form soon enough. Take care of yourself, everyone. Your well-being is so so important.
