Sometimes I hate how much my humanity gets in the way of all that I want to accomplish. I have so many ideas and passion projects I want to pursue, but at the end of the day, I keep finding that I am much too human and not enough superwoman to get what I want done.
I love my job—I love the work that I do and the people I collaborate with. I truly feel blessed, but that doesn’t mean that those 40 hours a week aren’t physically and mentally draining. When you’ve spent the whole day optimizing other people’s websites and social media accounts, it gets really hard to convince yourself to log onto your own blog to write. However, a lot of people do it! My coworker and good friend, Ellen, is a really dedicated blogger. I wish I had her level of commitment and hope that maybe one day I’ll get on her level.
Admittedly, I’m still in my first year of working full-time so it makes sense that I haven’t figured out the whole work/life/side-hustle balance. I also really, really dislike excessively hot weather so this July and August has really been killing my mood.
That being said, I’m looking forward to fall. I’ve always liked the fall for new beginnings rather than New Years. Most of the biggest changes in my life have occurred in the fall—whether it’s starting college, having surgery, or quitting my job. I think this new season will bring me more challenges and opportunities to grow.
For now, I’m happy, in love, the proud of mama of Cloe and my new cat George, and hopeful that I’ll get back to writing for my blog in earnest. I’m slightly more confident about the things I want to write and share on sarahmichellewalsh.com so please continue to follow along because I think you’ll like what I have to say!
