Hey, beautiful people. Hope you're well. I have been so swamped with work that I'm falling behind on posting and so many other things. I have to be honest. I've been a little obsessive with work to the point where it's been detrimental to my health. It's addicting to work when you enjoy it. And lately, I've been enjoying it a lot. I've been streaming regularly on Twitch, doing concerts on Saturdays, meeting with my music producer weekly, etc. It's been quite exciting and fun.
But I can feel it weighing heavily on my mind. Having Lyme is hard. Having mental illnesses on top of that is even harder. I have to remember to pace myself and not go on my own strength. I'm such a doer. I love doing things and feeling productive. But at what cost? I'm trying to not make work an idol. It's a challenge though. I notice that I can put my identity on how well I perform. I struggle to believe that I have intrinsic value.
What are some things you've been struggling with?
Even now, I'm tired. But I want to keep working. I'm glad it's Mother's Day. I decided not to stream today because of it. I got to spend quality time with my mom. It was really nice.
I signed up for two courses that I'm anxious to work on. One is Ari's Take Academy and the other is Stream Coach Academy. I'm excited to start them and work hard at them. I think they'll help me grow my brand and help more people hear my music. I'm excited about that.
God has been so good to me. I feel so unworthy. He's been so gracious and generous with His blessings.
How have you seen God bless you lately? I'd love to hear from you. Post in the comments.
I just got my logo and some banners done for my social media profiles. I think they look pretty amazing. I'm very grateful for companies like Fiverr. I'll post them below for you to see them.
I feel wired and yet so tired. It was a beautiful Sunday. I hope it was beautiful and encouraging for you too.
Shout out to all the mothers and mother figures out there!
