Taking A Step Back

Taking A Step Back

Have you ever felt like you are doing too many things at once? Or you just feel like your life is not in sync anymore?

Yesterday I had to make the tough decision to take a step back from one of the many jobs that i do.  As much as i like being a writer, i know that i have a habit of trying to take on too many writing jobs at once. Though i enjoy writing for different magazines, i know there are other aspects of my life that i need to focus on more.   For the past couple of months I have become so focused on my work and trying to succeed, that i have neglected myself. The drive that i have to succeed has basically taken over my life. Which made me start to think “Maybe i need to listen to my instinct and my friends and really evaluate how i am living my life”.

What I have come to realize is that it’s nothing wrong with taking a step back especially when it is effecting other aspects of your life.  We have to realize that we are all human and its nothing wrong with having some “me” time. Because let’s face it, how much good can be to ourselves and others if we never take time to rest.

Great post! It’s so easy to let enthusiasm for something take over to the point where basic things such as taking care of yourself can become secondary. Always good to start from a good foundation though and to treat yourself well first :0)

Absolutely agree, we all need to take a step back from time to time! I need to myself!

It is so important to recognize when you need to step back from something, good for you! I try to evaluate my priorities every few months and make sure I am making the best use of my time.
