Why Achieving Everyday Is Sometimes Unachievable

I’m the kind of person that loves to get myself one step closer to reaching my goals everyday as most people would want to in all honesty, but let’s be real a moment, some days your biggest achievement is the fact you’ve put a brush through your hair, had something to eat and gone to the toilet. Honestly that might not sound like a massive achievement but on some days that is just it.

In the blogging world there is honestly so many of us, just doing our own little thing, being the absolute fabulous people that we are but a hell of a lot of work goes into that. Whether it is hours of writing, or scheduling tweets, taking photos in awkward positions, it’s not all glamour you know.

Last week, I took a week off from the blogging world, I didn’t write, or anything I just spent quality time with my husband. I had already had posts queued from the week before, which was important for my own piece of mind, and the fact that I love to write.

The thing that got to me the most was the fact that I felt so guilty.

I know I shouldn’t have, but I’m the kind of person that sits there thinking, oh I could be doing this for my blog, I could be being proactive, doing things etc, but I wasn’t.

I had the most amazing time with my husband, naps, food, days out, just quality time together, and do you know what it was absolutely perfect. I don’t think I have had that perfect of a week in a long time.

There is a reason to my post.

I know I am probably not alone in feeling like this.

You don’t need to achieve something everyday, if you’re having at rough day, your emotions are everywhere and you get a day where laying in bed, eating pizza, binge watching tv programmes is an option – take it.

Sometimes your biggest achievement for the day is just giving yourself some time, chill out and just put yourself first.

You’ve got a list to do today? Not feeling up to it? It’s okay. Don’t let yourself feel beyond guilty about how you’re feeling.

Your feelings are valid, you feel however you want to feel.

If you feel up to doing your to do list, my lovely go for it, some days however it just isn’t possible and that is 100% okay.

Guilt is such an awful thing, you have nothing to feel guilty about.

    I needed to read this post sooo much right now! I struggle so much with just chilling out and whenever I do something just for fun/ for my mental health I feel guilty because I think ‘I should be doing something that could contribute to my future goals’, and I feel like when that attitude sets in taking time out and doing nothing is the best thing to do..thank you so much for sharing x
