I have been struggling with my writing lately. I went through a big guest post phase. While it was great, and I had a good time posting on other people’s blogs, I now find myself struggling to write again.
I know this is what happens. It’s normal. And I’m working through it. It will take discipline and continual practice, and it will be fine. As I have been thinking more about this, I have realized that just like life, our dreams sometimes slow down to a crawl. The key is to keep taking steps forward, no matter how small.
Lately, I have been constantly juggling to fit everything in. I have been blessed to be a part of some great book launch team groups, and have met some amazing people. I have learned so much in a short amount of time. Many of them are successful bloggers and authors. But, I’ve also tried to keep pace with some of them. I’ve tried to implement the same things that they are implementing. And while there is nothing wrong with that, I realize now that I have to prioritize what is most important to me now. I have to make sure that what I am doing is moving towards my dream, not where someone else thinks my dream should go.
I know this. I’ve actually implemented processes to help filter new things that come up. Yet, I continually find myself drifting and trying to stack more and more activity on top of what is already on my schedule.
Today, I am choosing to step back and realize where I am. I’m struggling a little bit. But, it’s okay! I will push through this. I take one step at a time.
What are you struggling with today?
