Motivation To Change
My husband is fast asleep right now, and while I lay in bed next to him, I can not help but think of all the many things I am learning from the blog class I am taking and a new podcast series I just found!
Let me rewind this a bit, so we are on the same page. I started blogging in October 2018. I didn’t think about it. My husband and I had a brief discussion the night before, and we more or less decided I should look into blogging since it’s something I have wanted.
The next day I purchased my domain name and released my first post. I then shared it with my personal Facebook page. Over the next few days, I did a crazy amount of research and watched YouTube videos. I created a blog Facebook page and moved away from the college page.
Elite Blog Academy is a course I found, purchased and started. I was learning soooooo much, that somewhere during October I disconnected from my husband, and was 100% plugged into living my dream 100% of the time. I didn’t know it then, but I was not living a balanced life.
Alex let me know how he felt, “soon you will be married to your blog.” At the time, I was a bit upset that he said that, but I played it off as a joke. I reflected on that for several days, and at the end of November, I walked away, thinking I would take a break for a week or two. Well, it took five and a half months to get back.
Searching for Balance
See, I knew I needed to find a way to balance my life, and at the time, I just could not. I am glad that Alex did not wait until I was one year into blogging and a day away from divorce due to the neglect and failure of not being an equal partner in our young marriage.
MizzPatricia.com is not where I wanted it to be at this time, I am far from the goals I had set for myself, and I did not feel guilty for being sorry for my disconnection with Alex. I do not regret the time away. It has shown me one thing; this is where I am meant to be.
Recently MizzPatricia has been on my mind. Did you ever look into your future and know where you were supposed to be? This blog is that for me. I talked to Alex again about starting my dream once more, and here I am!
When I started EBA sometime in October or early November, it was version 3.0. I have decided to start from zero as it is now 4.0. I am a week in, and boy I am enjoying it. I am finding a balance between family, work, school, and blogging.
All caught up? Good!
So here I am in bed, it’s now 12:44 am, and I started writing this post at about 12:20 am (on my cell). I am just too excited to sleep, too happy to keep my joy to myself.
The number one problem I have right now is learning how to be consistent with everything I do. Not just blogging, but every aspect of my life. So, as I learn about becoming consistent frequently, I will be sharing what I am learning with you. I hope it will help you as well.
This journey won’t be easy, I know! But it’s calling me, and I am listening, I am ready! I have so many things I want to share, and I don’t want to procrastinate my entrance back to posting anymore!
I hope you will join me on this journey of continual evolution. I look forward to learning with you and from you. First up on that road is learning how to have a healthy balanced life and being consistent with whatever it takes to reach that and all my goals.
