My husband and I are working on a putting together our piece-of-crap house, I’m currently running 2 blogs and launching 2 online classes. Plus regular cooking and housework and kittie-care AND being out of the house 50+ hours/week at my ‘day job’
So, yea, I have a lot going on.
But I still would love to build my online income so every once in awhile I take a look at the ProBlogger Job board or similar.
The other morning, I just took a glance – to see if there was anything that caught my eye. And within seconds I literally felt exhausted and my chest tightened. Tell-tale signs of stress.
Just by *looking* at a job board for something I hadn’t committed to and didn’t even NEED.
So, all that to say … I know we all want to do more and be more and have more and whatever else is on your ‘goals’ list …. Just don’t sacrifice your mental health for it.
Pay attention to what your GUT is telling you.
It’s one thing to feel butterflies and nerves because what you are going to do is new and exciting and scary. As it would be with a new freelance gig I just lined up that I’ll tell you about at the right time.
It’s another thing entirely to feel tightness of chest and a little wave of depression because what you are thinking about doing is draining and stressful. As it was when I was looking at freelance jobs just to see if I should apply for one.
Is there something you need to turn down this week?
