Self Care | Taking A Break


Sometimes you just have to take a break -- and the past couple of weeks, I've done just that. No blogging, no pressure to post to Instagram. I know that may not sound like huge deal, but it's been a major weight off of my shoulders to not have to leave work and head right back into my computer to make a collaboration deadline. 

Blogging can seem like a lot of fun and like it is super easy. Yes, working with different brands to talk about their products is fun, but there are also deadlines, negotiations, content creation and lots of planning involved. Having a 9-5 job AND doing all those things can be exhausting at times.

Fall at SOREL is our biggest and most important season of the year and I've been pouring a lot of myself into planning for our launch on 9/1. I'm definitely not the "typical blogger" who relies solely on blogging to support my family, and I don't think I'd want that. That being said, I have to know when I'm stretching, or may be stretching, myself too thin. I've never been one to skirt work responsibilities, so it's nice to be able to tell my blogging boss (me) that I need a break. I know that even if I did need a mental health day from my real job, all I'd have to do would be to phone it in -- no questions asked. 

These past two weeks have been amazing and I've really enjoyed unwinding, spending quality time with my husband and getting outside...Portland is going to get really nasty come October so I want to soak it all in. I'm glad I was able to recharge and settle down because work travel is about to get crazy :) ...stay tuned!
