Bit of a set back. but keep your head up and continue
On reflection this weekend has been bit of a "write off" (as they say it). Last week was going so well, each night I managed to work on my website about an hour each night and help out in the community.
My normal work day on Friday brought so many queries and just general crap that I came home feeling disheartened, lost and questioning my ability in my profession. More so my blood pressure was sky-rocketing and just tired. My brain wanted me to turn my laptop on and work but my eyes kept closing. I thought I would get good night rest and tackle it in the morning before I left to attend a wedding celebration.
Saturday 6am, alarm went off, but hit the snooze as I was just so tired. Finally, I managed to drag myself out at 7.30am, got ready and realised there was not enough time for me to even log onto to WA or work on my website.
In short, we spent 3 hours in traffic, get 0.7 miles from the venue only to see that the police had closed off the parameter due to a person walking around with a machete and a petrol can threatening to set it alight. So a further 1.5 hours stuck in grid lock traffic, unable to get to the venue as there was only 1 way in and out and the police had closed it off. We missed the wedding ceremony and made the decision to turn back and head home.
About 20 mins into the journey, whilst on the motorway my car breaks down, pulled over to the services and the car would not start. Called the recovery to take us home, took 7 hours for us to be recovered home (80 mile journey) and we reached home at 10pm, tired, hungry and angry. I wound myself up more as I did not get a chance again to work on sat as I had all these ideas in my head that I wanted to implement on my site.
Sunday - woke up with a really bad migraine, which resulted me not doing much for the rest of the day.
Then it was back to work today, the same feeling of unhappiness, no longer wanting to be there etc came back.
When I got home, it gave me a chance to reflect over the past few days. Although I have not worked on my site, not logged on into the community, my ranking has gone down and generally feel like I have taken 3 steps back. I realsied that these days are going to happen, keep in sight your goal (mine is to hand my notice in and work from home), this helped me re focus my mind and makes me even more determined to carry on working. Also, reading the success stories within the community, grounded me to keep me in check.
So never give up, it is during those testing times when you show your positive mentality where you will build your solid foundation...KEEP GOING!!!
