I officially have mad respect for The Fowlers, Brianna Sky, and Natalie Suarez. Not that I didn't think they were fabulous already, but wow. Do they ever take a break? Uh, no, no they don't. Ever since I started following them, I have always been able to count on fresh material...consistently. As far as my blog, for a couple months, I didn't miss a day. Even if I didn't feel like writing a single run-on sentence, I put something out there. I felt good, man. And then, boom. I got tonsillitis, planned on taking two days off [max], and ended up disappearing from the blogosphere for 8 whole days. On the contrary, most successful bloggers would take sick days as an opportunity to write in bed with a bottomless cup of green tea.
Honestly, I'm not terribly surprised. As much as I crave change, it's important for me to stick to a routine or else I get thrown. Anyone else guilty of this? Take exercise for example. Ever take a vacation from the gym that throws off your entire work-out routine? Getting back on the elliptical after a week of lounging is fucking hell. What about waking up at 5 am for that first day back to school or work after summer vacation? It's always so much harder the first day. However, after working out or waking up early for a few consecutive days, things don't feel so tough anymore. Twenty-one consecutive days and it's officially how you roll. There are certain areas of my life that I'd like to improve and, therefore, I need to update my routine. Know what I mean? Awesome. Happy Saturday, babes. Missed ya.
