I went from being lost to still lost after four months of reflection. I had published a YouTube video, podcast episode, and email newsletter every week for a year. I had spent 20 hours a week on myHealthSciences. That was on top of my full-time job and robust health routines. I gained knowledge and skills in the process. But my audience size and engagement didn’t budge. It didn’t bother me but eventually I stopped posting. I wouldn’t even consider it burnout. Just confusion. A loss of purpose. One week off turned into a four-month hiatus. I reflected. Is this how I want to spend my weekends? Am I benefiting from this? Is this helping others? If not, what could I be doing instead?
Now, four months later and I still don’t have those answers. I’m still lost. But the sun’s rays are emerging, my legs are bouncy, and my curiosity has risen. I may not know what lies ahead, but I’m excited to keep sharing my journey to healthier and happier.
