Weekly thought & writing update.
Honestly, writing has taken a backseat again the last two weeks. Other things have taken priority. Which is frustrating, but also life. I think my problem is that I haven’t really been prioritising my writing/editing. I’ve been unsure exactly what to prioritise this summer. I have so many projects I want to get done – both writing and life stuff – that I’ve struggled make decisions about what’s most important thing to work on. Unfortunately I think the summer is going to be over before I work it out. I’m sure it’s one of those life lessons though.
As above it’s been a hectic, difficult couple of weeks. I’ve made a couple of big decisions, which caused a lot of stress/anxiety, but I’m happy with my choices. I’m relieved that everything has turned out the way I hoped. Of course it’s been all over the UK news this week abut A Level results, and while I wasn’t doing A Levels, I was caught up in the stress of it, but I got my university place confirmed on Thursday – and that was a relief. I can’t believe I’m actually going, after years and years of dreaming about it, I’m actually going to do it. There are still things to sort out, and I’m sure more stress to come, but I am so grateful to be going I can’t find words for it.
The lesson here is that you never know what’s going to happen in life. If I’d been told three years ago that this is where I’d be now, I wouldn’t have believed it. But I am. I’ve got where I wanted to be.
Now I just need to decide on my next big goal in life. 🤔
