Do you ever feel like you took on too much or that you should have taken a break when you had the chance?
I got back this week from a trip to Arizona to visit my family for my parents 40th anniversary. I decided that I would continue working and posting during my trip. Once there I struggled to find the time and energy. I felt that I was not giving the proper attention to my family, to our contributors and to you, our readers. I got the scheduled posts up but found it difficult staying in touch with comments, Facebook and Twitter. At the end of my trip I found out that my husband’s grandma was sick in Chicago. I visited her Wednesday after I got back and then spent the day at with friends celebrating the 4th of July. Yesterday I spent the 1st day in a couple of weeks with just my husband and two boys. I decided to just go with the flow and give the blog a break for the most of the week.
Part of the reason I wanted to share this was because I had thought originally that I would schedule a two week break for the blog while I was gone and realized later that I should have.
Have you had a similar experience?
There are a lot of great posts planned for this month and I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things around here. I love discovering and sharing ways to help you grow your business and hopefully help you find ways to also take a break!
