Hey everyone, how are you?
I have been wondering if I need to take a step back from some things. As I am getting highly stressed and it is making me unmotivated.
I have a lot on my plate at the moment and some deadlines coming up. And with Christmas approaching and all the hoo ha that comes with it. I am left wondering, what is going to be the straw that breaks the camels back? So, I have decided that, as it doesn’t have a deadline, I am going to be taking a break from the novel. This is so I can focus on the university and PhD applications that I have to write. Once the PhD applications are almost out of the way, then I will come back to writing the novel. I just need to take something off my plat, otherwise I am just going to burn out.
I can to this realisation after talking with my key worker on the phone yesterday. It was more about something that is happening that I can’t blog about at the moment, but it got me thinking. As I listed all the stuff that I have to do in the immediate future. I also need to take some time out and do more things that are for me and not for other people. And give myself a chance to be able to chill out and relax. One of the things that I am going to do is start a new video game that I got for my birthday. I really want to play it but didn’t know if I could find the time. But I am now making the time.
So, today, is going to be the first day of me taking a step back. I am hoping that I got a decent night of sleep. And I am going to try and focus on what I want to accomplish in the day. I do have to go out in the afternoon, mainly for the doctor but also it’s Election Day in the UK. I also need to run some errands as well. When I get home I will be relaxing before staying up all night watching the election results come in. It’s going to be a long night, but hopefully it will be worth it.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
