Honouring Your Needs

istock_000002252268xsmallYou may have noticed I’ve been a bit more quiet on here lately.

After the month of posting for my raw vegan trial, I found myself a bit exhausted, and a lot of other things had backlogged on me while I wasn’t looking.  These last few weeks have been a process of unwinding, re-balancing and trying to juggle multiple commitments – including the day job which made a few more time demands than usual (I really don’t like it when I have to get up at 3am, especially in cold weather!).

I’ve kept in touch via twitter as much as I could, but I had to make a choice about posting: do it more often but not to the same standard I usually like to hold myself to, or let it slide until I could put it at the top of the priority list again.

I chose the second option.  I’m not comfortable giving less than my best.  You’ll mostly be seeing me on weekends for a while.

It hit me the other day, though, just how little I was getting to post to the blog lately, and how you deserve an explanation.  Here and now, I’m being up front with you: while I’m still having to support myself offline, I’m not going to promise that I’ll always post to a fixed schedule, and there may be times when I go quiet as other things take the fore in my life, but I can and will promise that I’ll do what I can to keep you updated (like using twitter) and to come back here when I can.

That said, I’ve racked up a few good post ideas that I’ll be working on over the next week or two, so I look forward to getting back in the swing of things.  As winter closes in here in Australia and the days get shorter (and colder) I probably won’t be doing as much early in the morning before work.  For the Steven Covey fans, I’m putting time into my day to sharpen the saw.  Anyone who’s not familiar with Covey’s work; that means I’ll be honouring my own needs to make sure I don’t wear out and end up with nothing left to give.

BTW, the opposite pattern happens in Spring, so you can look forward to that.
