Let's Try This Again

I said the blog was back and that was nearly three months ago!

So this is me trying it again, attempting to let go of all the things I think I should do for this blog and just write quick posts about what is going on in the work and tips that (I think) are interesting. I may have an interview or two going up in the next month.

I’m realizing how much self-employment fluctuates; every day is different even when I have some routines in place. I love this aspect but also find it hard to manage at times when work feels either super hectic (lots of projects booked with clients and it doesn’t feel like there’s enough time for other things) or when it’s slow and I’m trying to motivate myself to tackle my own projects or To Do’s.

After talking it out with someone earlier this summer, I discovered that the only reason I really want to blog is to share what my little sprucing world is like. It can be lonely and isolating at times when you don’t have coworkers and you’re trying to navigate running your business while doing the work itself. For me, it’s fun to share what’s going on, what I’m learning, what I didn’t expect, etc.

So, this is yet another opportunity for me to take my own advice and start small to get into the habit I want to create and it starts right now!

Let me know what you do to create a routine or start a new habit. Often times this feels like common sense but I always like to hear what works for others and find ways to make it work for me.
