We all have those moments. Our chest tightens. The air around us feels a bit thinner. Our hands shake. Having anxiety is a terrible and suffocating feeling. You feel helpless to control your reactions. Unfortunately, a lot of times it comes on without warning. You’re left wondering what is wrong with you. You can feel everyone’s eyes on you. Your mind is racing, but you can’t seem to slow it. It’s a nightmare. But you have the power to bring yourself out of that nightmare.
As a busy woman in her mid-twenties, I’m always looking for ways to manage my time better and boost my productivity. Sometimes I feel like I have thirty tasks that need to get done in one singular day. And if I’m not organized and using the best possible tools, I get overwhelmed. Then I thought to myself, why take twenty steps when I can jump and get there faster?
Because I like being as productive as possible, I’m always on the hunt for new ways to keep me on track. Between working full time, finding time to write, and trying to lead a social life, any help goes a long way. In the last few weeks, I started thinking about the apps I can’t live without. The ones that I use on a weekly or even daily basis. The ones that make my life as a writer one hundred percent easier. These are the apps I couldn’t live without.
Hello, my little duckies. The last four months have been a literal roller coaster for me. There were plenty of twists and turns between Hurricane Irma, a vacation, a funeral, and a move. If it sounds a bit like a Hollywood movie, then you’re underestimating how crazy life can be sometimes. I’m dizzy and nauseous. And I’ve become addicted to coffee. Here is my highlight reel from 2017.
I can’t believe it’s been so long. When I logged back onto WordPress, I couldn’t believe it was still here. It was just waiting for me.
2017 wasn’t exactly an easy year. After dealing with my grandmother’s cancer diagnosis and a challenging new job, I couldn’t keep my eye on the prize. It was all too much. When my grandmother passed in late September, I couldn’t bring myself to write anymore. I know she’d want me to go on and follow my dreams, but something in me broke. It didn’t feel right. All I can say is it took some time to fix myself.
As bloggers, we must stay organized and on top of our posting schedules. We have notebooks and calendars brimming with ideas and schedules. Then life happens, and our attention gets pulled away. Even if we’re organized to perfection, something is bound to pop up and some things get pushed aside. Sometimes blogging gets thrown to the wayside. But all hope isn’t lost for us busy little bees. It’s okay to get lost. Deep breath in. Now breathe out.
