I feel so blessed, as I´ve said numerous times before, that I have met so many nice and caring people through the blogging world. I´ve been missing for a while as I´m struggling to find a balance this work year between work, new courses I´m doing to improve my career, writing blogs and finding time for my family and for me. It´s times like this that I really wish there were more hours in a day but I have to learn that I´m only human and can only do so much, take a leaf from my own book, one day at a time, and learn to stop trying to achieve everything. Who knows maybe then, when I stop putting so much pressure on myself, I might actually achieve what I want to achieve!
I guess what I´m trying to say is I´m not telling myself that I´m going to write three posts a week anymore because what ends up happening is: I don´t get time to write three, end up feeling guilty and therefore end up not writing anything. So; I´m reducing my goal. I going to write one post a week as a minimum and if I get time I will write more. I think it might actually work out better for me, if I don´t have yet another deadline to meet then I might actually be more productive! We´ll see!
Thank you to everyone for being so patient with me and understanding that sometimes, no matter how much we love doing things, we just don´t have the time for our hobbies.
I´m starting out on a good note today, I came down with a bad cough and sore throat on friday which forced me to take a day off yesterday and do absolutely nothing. It´s funny how our bodies let us know when we´ve had enough even when we don´t realise it for ourselves. Anyway, today I feel all the better for it, I feel rested and ready to write. So I plan to make the most of this new-found energy and write a few posts, The first one, being this one, to explain my new approach to this blog, the second one being the weekly photo challenge as it seems to tie into my new start and the third one, one which is long overdue, an awards one to thank and acknowledge those of you who constantly support me, even when I don´t always have the same dedication as the rest of you; no matter how hard I try!
Okay, enough rambling, and time to get on with my writing but first a spot of lunch with some friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday, wherever you are, and that it´s a relaxing one!
As always, thank you for reading,
Until the next time,

A very sensible approach, Giana, to take the pressure off yourself.
Sorry to hear you haven’t been well for the past couple of days, but hope you are soon back to normal. It’s always a delight to read your posts.
Take it easy!
Thanks Marianne! Think I have to be realistic about it, otherwise I end up feeling horrible when I miss my self imposed deadlines, I hope it does work, that it helps me to become more productive! Hope you are having a fantastic Sunday, so nice now the rain has passed! G 🙂
It´s quite cold and windy here, but we haven´t had any rain today!
So glad you’re feeling better, Giana. I’ll look forward to your one post a week. Take care. 🙂
Thanks so much, hopefully I´ll manage more but the key is to reduce the pressure! Hope you´re having a fantastic day! 🙂
Welcome back Giana 🙂 Glad you’re feeling better and decided to take the pressure off and take it easy on yourself.
I am passionate about blogging but it seems like I am always running after time. With the hectic holidays, blogging is a challenging task. I do wish I have more time though. Enjoy the most amazing times this season with your family.
Me too! I also write once a week, take care, Hugs! 🙂
