Between going to Orlando for the Digital Dealer conference (and tweeting from @LiliTweetsCars like a fiend), and then going to Ohio to visit family and friends, I’ve been crazy busy!
Naturally, this means that I’m wayyyyy behind on my Suite 101 articles… I need to write 6 articles over the next 3 weeks to be able to hit my minimums to stay on contract there. Yikes! Because of this, I wrote and posted articles yesterday and today. I’m going to try to hit one a day until I’m caught up (or I’m never going to hit that 200 article mark by the end of the year!)
- Today’s was an article on the Benefits of having more than one Twitter Account based on my personal recent experience and the research that I’ve been doing about that process.
- Yesterday’s was exceedingly random. It was a comparison of DSL vs. Cable internet. It really has no bearing on anything beyond it was a brief, informational tidbit that I actually knew about right off the top of my head.
This overwhelmed feelings I’ve been having lately have actually been more about focusing too much of my energy outward – on the trips, on my job, on my house – and not enough of it inward. So, when I hit the “crawl under my desk and cry” point the other day, I decided to do a few things about that.
First, I signed up for an online creative writing course. I’m super excited about it! I think “How to Think Sideways” is exactly the spark I’ve been looking for in my work writing as well as my fiction and articles.
The other thing I did was sign up to volunteer at the Chastain Horse Park to be a horse-walker for therapeutic riding sessions for disabled kids. The benefit – beyond karma – for me is that I get to groom and tack up the horses I’m walking, and get to spend some time with hands-on equine therapy! I’m pretty excited about this, too!
What about you? What do you do to get back on track when you aren’t taking good enough care of yourself?
