I didn’t start writing my blog post until Wednesday morning. And I was supposed to post it a week ago. The truth is, I need to make a change. I need to start practicing what I preach. I need to start taking things off of my plate that aren’t serving me right now. And one of those things is posting on my blog every two weeks.
I haven’t written much of my next e-book at all, even though I published my first one 6 months ago. Every time I try to start picking it back up, another blog post comes along and derails my plans. I’m also trying to develop a new, free presentation, that I’ve only had time to start planning in my head. I want to provide good, free content, but I just don’t have the time post good content on the blog every two weeks.
One of the most important things I work on with parents is decreasing their workload so they can actually be the parents they want to be. I talk with families about how to change their therapy schedule, how to get caregivers, and how to change their relationship with time. Just because doctors say your child needs all the therapies every week doesn’t mean you have to do it. Just because ABA wants to treat your kid for 20 hours a week doesn’t mean you have to do it. And just because all the experts on having an online business say I need to post regularly on a blog doesn’t mean I have to do it.
So I’m going to change it.
I am going to keep the blog, but I’m getting rid of the schedule where I post every other week. Instead, I will post content as I find it. (I actually just met someone who has great content that I hope to share with you soon!) I hope you can understand, and maybe even consider one thing you can take out of your own schedule today. Think of something you think you have to do, but truly isn’t serving you or your family that well. Take it out, because life’s too short to spend it doing things that aren’t serving us.
So, still look for me in your inbox every so often, just not every two weeks. And who knows? Maybe someday in the future I’ll be ready to go back to blogging on a regular schedule. Until then, I hope to keep serving you to the best of my ability. Thank you for reading and following along with my journey for the last few years.
