I’m not even going to call this a confession because that implies I’ve done something wrong; instead, I’m going to tell you a truth.
I’m not caught up on writing in layers and I didn’t have a post ready to go this morning.
I have a lot of posts partway done, and I love where each is going, but nothing is ready to publish. Right now, I’m putting more of my writing energy into another project (and into another exciting post coming later this week—stay tuned!), and I think that’s totally okay. Instead of pushing myself, I’m softening a bit.
As I thought about what to post this morning (I have been posting something every Tuesday and wanted to maintain the routine), I realized I didn’t want to hide the fact that I’ve made the choice to put my energy elsewhere. And I didn’t want to rush through to post something that was only halfway helpful because I’m out of time.
So I'm here to say that I've made a conscious decision about where to put my energy; I’m not struggling, I’m not overwhelmed, and I’m not too busy—I’m walking the tightrope and I’m being wildly productive and living the dream.
