I haven’t went on a full sabbatical from the net the last five days, but I have greatly decreased my use of the Internet and social networks from my usual tweets and updates. I haven’t updated my blog in almost four days, which is unheard of in these parts. Simply put, I am up to my ears in Show Me the Blog preparation and working on several projects for clients while trying to maintain my freelancing duties. Add to that my need to connect with my family (boy do I need that balance in my life) and spiritual growth, and I just haven’t had the time I usually have to spend online.
Sometimes, you need to unplug.
There are only so many hours in the day, and lately, I have been burning the candle at both ends. Sometimes I wonder why I always set myself up for momentous tasks that always end up running me ragged. I guess it’s the thrill, and the thought of pulling out of me everything it takes to make something happen. I continue to rise to every occasion stronger and better than before. All of the work is usually worth it in the end.
But with the new week comes new goals and new challenges. When I do unplug, it’s never for long.
Do you ever take time away from the Internet to reevaluate and regroup? What has been your experiences?
