Up until two weeks ago, I’ve been blogging every week since October 2019 about many topics; from yoga to my Christian faith, from writing a book to the pandemic. I started blogging weekly mainly to see if I can stick to it consistently, because God had put it on my heart to start a podcast. The thought of doing a podcast was intimidating and overwhelming to me. It’s in my nature to dive headfirst into whatever dream I want to pursue without doing the research and putting in the necessary preparation; but as I’ve gotten older and more experienced in completing projects successfully, I have trained myself to put in the time to realistically prepare myself while still dreaming big. I told myself that if I can stick to blogging every week for a whole year, I would launch a podcast. That one year mark came and went.
This year, I decided to launch my podcast about living your best authentic life in Christ, and the launch date was set to May 4th. I was preparing and was making great progress… until I realized that I started to lose sight of the purpose of the podcast. I found myself becoming anxious and stressed out about staying afloat with everything in my life (teaching classes, homeschooling my daughter, dealing with health challenges, leading a small group at church, continuing education for yoga & wellness, etc.). I was constantly multitasking (which can cause mental stress if done too long) and sleeping less. So as the launch date approached, I felt like I was not in the right place emotionally and spiritually to debut my podcast. I listened to the Holy Spirit telling me to wait, and I rescheduled my launch to June 1st. Well, today is June 14th, and I’ve yet to launch my podcast; but this time it was intentional.
A recent blood test showed that I have several health issues that needed to be dealt with right away, which you can read about in my previous blog, “The Body Tells You.” It was at this moment that I realized I needed to take a step back in order to move forward. So with all that said, I’ve decided to step back in blogging weekly for now; instead, I will post a blog in the beginning of every month, starting on July 1st. Until my podcast launches (sometime this summer) my blogs will be mostly about behind-the-scenes of launching a podcast and writing a book (yes, I have decided to write a second book — you can buy my first book here). Once my podcast launches, my blogs will mainly be show notes and other behind the scenes info.
