As a blogger and business women, I strive to be easily inspired. I make it a point to keep an open mind and to soak up as much knowledge as possible. Not only is this good for me as a part time entrepreneur, but it provides me with a ton of content to share here on the blog. I often refer to my 50 and more blog topic template, but sometimes that’s just not enough.
The One Thing Holding You Back
About a month ago, I noticed that I been stuck to my computer a little too much. My environment was getting old. I wasn’t coming up with any real time, inspirational content. Here at The Life She Created, I love to mix scheduled posts and real time lifestyle posts. A real time lifestyle post is where an event has happened and it’s still fresh in my mind as I prepare the post. I can feel the emotion behind it as I push the keys on the keyboard.
Lately, I had been lacking in those particular posts of feelings and realized why….. I have been stuck behind a desk for too long. How can I share lifestyle events and lessons learned if I don’t go out into the world? As bloggers, it is easy to be consumed with work. You have content creation, social media, photos, networking, ect…. The list goes on and on. I also suffer from social anxiety and ptsd. It’s not easy for me to mingle around a lot of people, believe it or not. I realized that I use the “busy” excuse to stay stuck behind the desk.
Getting out of the house has been a top priority. It hasn’t been easy but I have been in the mist much more than my normal. This is why we need to remember to celebrate milestones and not just completed goals. In the last few weeks, I have been to a clothing swap, a vendor event, and a couple boutiques. I’ve also been having meetings with a ton of customers for my health and wellness business Last, I’ve booked my first vendor event. I’m excited and nervous.
Detaching myself from the computer has done a few things for me.
- Grew my network.
- Gives me a ton of lifestyle content to share with you.
- Helps me cope with my personal issues of social anxiety.
