That Time Weight Off My Shoulders Turned 7!

I sound like a broken record right now, but I seriously miss my little slice of the internet. I haven't been making it a priority. It's at the top of my To-Do List each day yet it doesn't get checked. Since making the job switch, I've been averaging 60-70 hours of work a week and blogging falls to the bottom of the list. Even though I know it would make me so happy to do.

I know I need to move other To-Dos out of the way, but for me the work takes precedence, which is only good to a point. My wife keeps calling me a workaholic, but I just have a lot on my plate and am running out of hours in the day to get it done.

My stress and anxiety levels are super high and I know that is because I am not putting the things that make me the happiest as a priority.

Including of course my little Weight Off My Shoulders.

It has to change. 


I hate that I am writing this post again. I know I have gotten into this rut before, but this time I am going to nip it in the butt before I get too far gone... which many of you would say - it already happened!

So I need to add blogging to my work calendar so it gets done. I mean I am at the point where I am forcing myself to take a lunch break so I know a blogging break is definitely needed to.

Okay that was not an exciting: "YAY THIS BLOG TURNS 7!" kind of opening so...

I need to take a moment to thank you all for sharing this journey with me. I never thought when I started this blog seven years ago (May 26, 2011) that anyone would even read it or it would morph into what it is today. I am honored to be given the opportunities I have and I can't wait to see what else awaits.

A blog must evolve as the person writing it evolves. I just think I allowed some aspects to overtake others. It happens. I'm human and still learning about how this whole social media thing works.

All I know is that I love it and I couldn't imagine not having Weight Off My Shoulders and @IrishEyes1982 in my life.

While I want to say I will blog everyday in June, I need to be realistic. Let's say once a week for now and hope for more. Shall we?

But you can always check me out - hey not my booty please ;) - on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
