Picking Up Where I Left Off


I apologize to everyone who enjoys reading my blog posts and has been wondering why I haven’t posted in more than a year.  As they say, sometimes life gets in the way, and, honestly, I guess I just got a little lazy.  I’m not afraid to admit it.  Also, I kind of gave myself a hard act to follow.  Most of my posts were very lengthy and imparted such valuable insights that, frankly, I felt like they were being divinely guided, and I was constantly questioning myself … how will I top that one?  I put undue pressure on myself, and then I’d start saying I’ll do it next month, and then the next month, until I just let it go entirely.

Maintaining a blog is a commitment, and I’m usually very good about keeping commitments, but I let this one slide.  I needed to focus on getting my second children's book done, which I’m happy to say I finally accomplished this month.  On July 18, My Mommy Is a Butterfly was published!  I can’t believe I’ve finally put what I feel is my life’s work into the marketplace.  It turned out even better than I could’ve imagined.  I’ll be doing a separate post about my book’s journey from inception to completion.  It needs its own special title.  LOL

This will undoubtedly be my shortest blog post ever, but that’s okay.  They don’t all have to be monumental masterpieces.  They just need to be words from my heart, however long or short that may be.  It’s important to stay current, and now that my second book is out, there’s no excuse.  Yes, I’ll be taking time to promote it, and it can be difficult to burn the candle at both ends with a full-time job, commuting, and taking care of basic responsibilities, but I’ll make time to do it.  I really need to remember to try to have fun in there somewhere too.  LOL

So, although this entry is short, it says what I needed to say.  Now, I can get back to business … and blogging.

My message for the month is not to be so hard on yourself if you get lazy.  It happens.  Just pick up where you left off with whatever it is you let slide.  Sometimes, you just need a break.  Always follow your heart in everything that you do.  Your heart will show you the way to your most fulfilling life ever!

With love, light, and angel blessings,

Michelle
