So there have been some challenges going on in my life that has kept me from posting consistently on social media for almost a month. I also haven’t written a post in over 3 weeks! (My bad, ya’ll) Some might say that’s not a big deal but I try to churn out new content at least twice a week so you can clearly see how behind I am.
I was already in a bit of a funk about a few things and the added stress of creating blog posts, Facebook page posts and Instagram pics was NOT helping. I was like “Oh no! My followers are going to leave me!” “I committed myself to helping people with self-care and now I’m not holding up my end of the bargain!” I was totally stressin ya’ll….not a good look for a self-care coach, huh?
But it’s all good and let me tell you why…
Sometimes life get’s in the way.
That’s just how it is. It’s not an excuse, it’s real talk! Yes, i’m a self-care coach but i’m also a wife, a mother, an employee, a business owner and a friend. At any given time any of those things can get out of wack and I need to refocus my energy. I’m not saying to use this reasoning as a crutch but it IS fine to take time off when you need it. You’ll be better for it.
You can’t give what you don’t have.
When things go south in your life you BETTER give it your focus and make it right or else everything else will suffer. Your marriage, your household, your job and best believe your kids will pick up on the vibe. Handle your business, get your mind right and then you can continue to shoot for the stars!
No one is perfect, dammit!
Who ever heard of a self-care coach not having it all together? That’s what I thought. I was beating myself up about this at first but then I realized, i’m only human. I’m not immune to life’s challenges. It’s like a hair dresser who’s hair looks a hot mess! Or an overweight fitness instructor! It doesn’t mean they are not good at their jobs, they just have to make some adjustments!
Great things come from trials and tribulations.
So i’m in a better head space now and able to continue on with my self-care coaching. And guess what, i’m writing this blog post because of it so….WINNING! I’m talking about my experience so you can learn to take it easy on yourselves. Plenty of great things come out of challenges and hardships. When you go through something, that’s a lesson from God that you can use to one day help another person.
So I hope this helps someone balance life and business a bit better. No superwomen over here! Just women doing what we gotta do to better ourselves and those around us.
