You may have noticed that I didn’t have a blog last week. And this week I am a day late.
When things like that happened I used to beat myself up. Think that I was the worst person ever. Think no one would want to read what I had to share. Think that I am letting down those that do read and they would ‘leave me’.
This is part of my mental health. This is what a couple of my books are about and what the Write or Die Show is all about.
Going through therapy and talking to all of the great guests on the show has helped me not beat myself up when I need a break. I’ve been working on a big project for the past two weeks and finally finished it (yay). Since that project was so big I was working seven days a week at all hours of the day. Which I was okay with because it was pretty fun.
As I got closer to the deadline I focused even harder (which is why I missed last week’s blog). This week I took yesterday off (which is why today’s blog is a day late).
And THAT WAS OKAY!
It was okay that I took the time that I needed to refresh my brain. If you are anything like me and beat yourself up if you miss a small routine or need a break I am here to tell you that it is okay if you need a break.
Again, IT IS OKAY IF YOU NEED A BREAK!
