Reconnect

{Miami Beach, Florida}

Lately, my ability to write and stay connected via my blog and social media requires far more effort than usual.  I’ve written in previous posts that when life gets overwhelming, one of the first things that fall to the wayside is my blog.  I’m trying hard to stay consistent on posting because the last time I put my blog aside, I ended up taking a one year hiatus from September 2013 through September 2014.  I sound like a broken record when I find myself regularly struggling with life balance, though I’m well aware that the ability to find balance is an ongoing process.

This weekend, I’m headed to northern California to visit my family for Father’s Day and am looking forward to reconnecting again.  I also have group therapy today before catching my flight, so i hope to get some feedback from my therapist and group members regarding my disconnect and self-critical self.

I know that I am human, “nobody’s perfect,” and we’re entitled to our good and bad days.  Yet, I just can’t help getting frustrated when I don’t feel like myself.  I’m sure several of you out there can relate?

  1. I think most of us can relate. Life is a constant shifting of balancing acts, and each day brings different priorities. We have to learn to cut ourselves some slack or our anxiety will shoot through the roof. Have a great time in California!

    • Hi doc! Thanks so much for your comment 🙂 And you’re soo right about the balancing act…when i read your comment, i thought about a pendulum swing (i’m a visual person) and the need to adjust when each new force disrupts our equilibrium, which really helped! Hope you have a great week 🙂

  2. I so understand as I sit in front of my computer and work on my resume, cover letter, and professional bio. I like you have to take a step back and really take a look at how I view myself, how others will view me and is that how I want or need them to view me. But when you get overwhelmed with work just remember the time with your family and friends and the relationships we make are what we are known for and remembered for. Enjoy your family the blog and work will be here when you get back 🙂

  3. I hope you’re able to moderate that voice of self-criticism. I can see how difficult it makes your life. I also hope you continue blogging. As Don Corleone said, “I have selfish reasons.” I just like to read what you have to say. Plus, blogging seems to be beneficial for you.

    • yes, that self-critic is a constant recurrence in my therapy sessions. I’m a different person compared to when i took that one year hiatus, so i plan to continue on w/ the blogging because it is therapeutic for me (as you’ve pointed out), plus i enjoy connecting with other bloggers such as yourself 🙂
