That's today's topic. I had gone months with very little stress for the first time in years.
Oh how amazing that was. It was so relaxing to just be working, paying bills on time, spoiling myself and planning for my upcoming tour.
I hadn't felt so confident and fancy free in years. Then WHAM FOSTA/SESTA happens.
Fortunately for me I do have my web design business and assisting business.. but it has really left me stressed and trying to maneuver things for my upcoming tour. I am hoping and praying that Eros and Slixa, P411 and other ad venues stay up long enough me to be able to pull of my tour and retire in peace.
It is tough telling others to be calm and to not worry when I myself have concerns, however I do know that I am blessed to have a secondary income. I know it is absolutely horrifying for others at this time. So I definitely don't want to come off as a griping , when I have lots to be grateful for. I just know that touring when you aren't even sure what ad venues are still going to be helpful is a bit unnerving. But I am not a quitter and have already invested so much money and time into planning this , that it must go on.
However, the schedule may change. For that I am sorry and apologize but I have really had to kind of mentally regroup for more than one reason.
This last month I have been so very busy with website work, assisting etc ( again no complaints, please keep hiring me lol) that I have become mentally exhausted and needed to take time for me lately. I often just get so consumed with being everyone else's answer and voice of reason that I forget I need self care and help sometimes myself. If I seem rude, or came off
rude to any of you. I am not meaning to be rude. It is just that many of you are stressed out, and anxious and scared ( I get it) but that stress then comes with you when you contact me, or begin doing business with me and I am not a rush type person. I am an organized, calculated,take my time and do it right kind of person. I do not like to feel rushed or pressured. As companions
yourselves those of you reading this I am sure you can understand that.
So my matter of fact demeanor and me politely reminding you to give me time and space to do my job is not me being rude. It is me keeping my mental and physical health in tact which is something I have to do.
Let's all pray for a less stressful week and compassion for each other as we move forward in our daily regimens. This too shall pass...
