I haven't posted in quite some time. I've been really busy at work, for starters. Also, I've given myself a permission slip to handle a few things at home like, I don't know, cook dinner, play outside with the kids, get back on my work out routine, fall asleep before midnight. Midnight is when I'm usually checking out my favorite blogs and writing some posts. But since I've been making a conscious effort to be asleep before midnight, actually, by 11pm, there's no time for blogging.
I'm not too worried about losing my writing momentum, though. Because in my head, I've come up with some really great posts. These posts are funny, witty, smart, thought provoking. Exemplifies all that a great blogger has to offer. They have the ability to finally land me a spot on Oprah.
Unfortunately, as quickly as I've come up with these so funny they will bring tears to your eyes posts, they have vanished. Whoosh! Just like that. My mommy brain saw them for what they were - things that could potentially take my attention away from my kids. And my working girl attitude knows that bills before blogs is the best approach. So until I'm able to recoup all of these great ideas, I have nothing really great to report other than I'm pretty well rested these days.
I haven't read Permission Slips by Sherri yet, but I like the title and what it has to offer; it's what I'm going with these days. It's okay to give myself a little break, or a permission slip to be less than perfect and have at least six hours worth of sleep. Especially after planning a conference that turned out to be a fab-u-lous.
So here's my permission slip: "It's okay to take a few weeks off from blogging and enjoy six hours of sleep, or more."
Give yourself a break to be less than perfect! What's your permission slip say?
