If you read my posts you know I’m always ranting about commitments and consistency. I believe wholeheartedly in those things.
My blog posts, without fail, go live every Wednesday morning at 7AM EST.
In fact, you might be sipping your cup of joe in your robe right now wondering what social media or content marketing lesson I have for you today.
Well … I don’t.
Life & Love
Instead, I have a lesson about life and love.
Yesterday my boyfriend of three years picked me up from the airport to drive me to the “country” (aka: sticks) in New Jersey where we’re house shopping.
I had just spent four, LONG days in Dallas with my girlfriends – some of whom I hadn’t seen in a couple of years!
We spent the majority of our time running from one event to another; eating and drinking way too much while playing catch up.
So I was shocked when “checking out” the beautiful lake by the mountain near our would-be home Alex proposed!
Taking A Break
I already missed about three days of work, so returning today has been a little hectic. I faithfully went to my meetings. I checked on and returned important emails. But man, I just couldn’t get a blog post written.
I even have a few in the queue that are nearly done – you know, the “break in case of emergency” posts.
But after pecking on the keyboard for a bit nothing seemed to fit.
I was feeling pretty guilty … and then I realized …
Love Deserves Commitment, Too!
I need to allow myself to remember that getting engaged to the man who has supported me in every way, shape, and form for the past three years is a pretty big deal.
It deserves my time and attention just as much as content marketing, and social media. Even more so!
I hope you’ll forgive me for taking this break, but:
- It’s much needed
- Alex deserves it
- I can’t think straight anyhow
- I need to allow myself to let love and our partnership come first
You know, life shouldn’t just “get in the way” of something this special. THIS is life. My blog post is just that … a blog post.
We should allow ourselves to celebrate more.
I took a break. Now I invite you to take a break if the time is right. Hug your lover, play with your kids, throw the ball for your dog, go for a walk.
See you in the social sphere!
