Consistency is Key

googley-eye-birdie-has-questions“Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.”

“Variety is the spice of life.”

These are two mantras that I have lived my life by. I wish I could be a woman of routine, but try as I may, I just can’t seem to get my schedule down to a rhythm that works. There are certain things I do every day, but I do not do them in the same order.  Here it is 10:22 in the morning and I haven’t had breakfast yet. Sometimes I eat right away, other times I blog first… Yet I know that, “consistency is key to creating confidence” and honestly, I wish I could make this my mantra!

It was over a year ago when I was preparing for Confident Beauty to be released, and my publisher recommended I started blogging every day. Some time after the release I weened my blog down to twice a week in order to keep my sanity and to re-acquaintance myself with my family. This change in my schedule was a bit like going for a walk after running a marathon.

Have you ever had to do more than you thought you could? Completing an intense challenge is rewarding. Not because it is over, but because, after being stretched and strengthened, going back to the former ways becomes much like visiting Staples. “That was easy.”

The problem comes when we use the “easy button” for too long and we begin to loose our strength. Then when a challenge comes our way that which is easy becomes difficult.

I felt strong about blogging twice a week after doing it daily, but now it’s been a year of bi-weekly blogging and when my website updated and required so much of my time, my blogging got weak. I’m struggling to find my rhythm again. I wonder if you would take 2 minutes to help me by taking this survey
