Let me tell ya, blogging, running your own business, being a loving wife… that’s tough! I don’t know how people with pets or kids do that! Actually, I don’t know how people with kids do anything. If you have a kid girl, you’re my hero! (I love kids but we ain’t ready for that)
And Monday as the day to post my new blog post?! Holy macaroni how did I ever think that would be a good idea? Especially when I KNOW that I dedicate most of the weekend to my husband and I and our love. Not that we don’t love each other during the week but you know what I mean… (if you don’t – he is an Air Force guy and let me tell ya, he usually doesn’t have much time during the week).
That’s probably why I have gaps in posting and why am I typing this on Sunday 11 pm. I just didn’t feel inspired earlier.
About two weeks ago I realized 2 major things.
I don’t know what I am doing here. I mean, I do. I have a clear vision but -there is the but and the second discovery- only blogging won’t fulfill that.
You know, Team up Girl was “founded” as a place for women supporting women but if I don’t do that in my offline life, I can hardly have that online. Makes sense, right?!
And that’s when I realized something I’ve always known. I have beautiful friends who need my love and support first. I have my sister Verca, and my friends Lucka, Eliska and Misa. And I loooooooove them to Europe and back.
And furthermore, if I don’t talk to YOU, Team up Girl is nothing. And I am talking about real-time online Zoom or Facebook call supported conversations.
So I started doing just that. I actually committed to weekly Skype with my friends and at least 1 or 2 not-work-related calls a week with other badass girls (turns out these are my new friends now!). And I know all of this is actually online not offline, however that’s just how it is right now in our tiny Wichita Falls.
I feel like Team up Girl more than ever!
All of this with way more ease and satisfaction. I might not be structured right now, not have a content calendar ready for the next month ahead (who am I kidding, even a week) but I feel like I am making a difference. Following my intuition has always paid off so far and I believe this will happen even this time.
So maybe if you are juggling multiple roles right now and you feel like you are getting lost in it, think about what you WANT to do. Sometimes less does more. Sometimes focus on one place makes more than attention divided into 100 pieces. Sometimes shifting your dedication or taking a break is not quitting.
