Hey there and welcome back to my adventures in indie-authoring 2019! It’s been a wild, roller-coaster ride so far this year, but I’ve learned lots, and found ample opportunities to call myself out on my own BS and keep myself honest and on-path (when I’ve veered off…which has happened a few times!) 🤦♀️😂
So, what’s on the agenda today? Climbing back onto your wagon and switching things up! Come on in!
This Past Week
First – climbing back on your wagon. You know what I mean… we all fall off of our “wagon” sometimes — whatever that wagon may be at the time. For me, it’s been my writing this year. As you may (or may not LOL) know, I run Author’s Mojo, a tech-for-authors business, and I’m a mentor/coach for indie-authors… both of which I love doing, but my main, long-term goal has always been on my own writing career. That was my wagon.
And I fell off of it… and bounced as it kept rollin’ down the path without me. 😜🤦♀️
I took some time these last couple weeks to refocus and start dragging myself back onto my wagon… because, let’s be honest, even if your wagon is something you love and want to be on… once you fall off, often it’s hard to get back up there. Why? Mainly because of a lot of self-judgment that takes place (often behind the scenes and subconsciously) about how we “should” have done better… “shouldn’t” have fallen off in the first place…blah, blah, blah.
Short lesson there: life gets crazy, we all fall off our wagon, and it’s OKAY. Quit beating yourself up… stand up, dust yourself off, and climb back up on that thang! 😂🐎
