Falling Back Into the Basics

No comments

Well hello there August, how the heck are you?

Like I mentioned yesterday, apparently fall doesn’t begin until September 22 but, considering I’ve already seen Halloween stuff in stores, I’m going to go ahead and call it fall.

Which is my favorite time of year.

The only thing keeping me from putting up my Halloween décor is because I am far too lazy.


That, and I have a million other things I need to be doing and finding the energy for them is already a struggle. Hell, it took be the better part of four hours to work up the energy to even think about writing this post.

But I’m looking forward to a new month. I already have some speaking engagements on the books and will be sending out advertising for the new school year within the next week. I’m looking forward to getting back on the road and back to what I love. It’s been a slow couple years and I’m hoping to see a change in that soon.

It requires work though. Work that I haven’t had the energy to do.

I’m trying so hard to find the energy to be the person I used to be.


One of the biggest things is getting back to regular blogging for work. I haven’t been updating like I used to and I have to say I kind of miss it. I honestly, truly fell out of it when I moved. I used to head to my local Starbucks and sit and work on posts for hours.

I would spend an afternoon writing a week’s worth of posts and get them set up and ready to go. I haven’t done that in so long. So when it comes to August, that’s my goal. Get back to basics. Get back to a better routine and find my passion again.

I’m not saying I don’t love my job, I really do. But when I moved to Florida I feel like I lost something. I’ve spent a lot of time recently question my decision and wondering if it was the right one. The idea of moving back North seems daunting so that’s out of the question. Plus I really don’t know what I’d be moving back there for.


Once again, I’ve lost track of where I was going with all of this.

I’m such an amazing blogger.

I don’t know what ya’ll put up with me.


This year has become about taking baby steps. Every time I’ve tried to go too hard and too fast on things, I end up failing, so I’m been working slowly at things and trying not to get down on myself when I stumble a bit.

I stumble a lot.

So right now, as we move into the fall, my baby steps are working towards rebuilding myself professionally and getting back on the right track. So I’m going to wrap this up and post it, and get to work on some professional posts to get them ready to go. My goal is to write three posts to get me through the next week.

They don’t need to be anything special, just something to breathe some life back into the poor, ignored thing.

Then do the same next week when I have some free time.

Rinse and repeat.

So that is my goal for this month.

We’ll see what happens!

Let’s make it happen August!
