Normaly I’m the type of person who likes schedules. I like rules and black and white with no grey in my work life, mostly. Cupcakes are always allowed! But I’ve been treating Roots Before Branches Blog like a job. I started my blog one month ago as a creative outlet for myself. Lately, I have become a stats watcher and this creative outlet has become another job. I love sharing my life experiences with any who want to see, but this weekend I made a decision to not be ruled by schedules on my time away from work as a Dental Hygienist. At work our days are held to such rigorous scheduling that I can’t pass that structure along to my play time. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job as a Dental Hygienist, and love the people I work with. I believe that even when I no longer see patients (hopefully not til I’m at least 80!) that I will still be an educator in Dental Care. However, as Dental Professionals we are held to a high level of care and devotion to our patients. And as such we try to live our daily work days on schedule…most times effected by emergencies, patients themselves, or taking the much needed time to educate so that our patients have clear understanding of what is going on for their particular needs and conditions. All of this takes precious time and we jump through hoops to remain on schedule for our next patient to receive that same high level of care and attention. This can be exhaustive in effort and deed on a daily basis, but love it all the same! I work two days per week and though it may not sound like a lot of time out of my schedule, I am a full time mother, wife, and animal tamer (4 dogs, 1 cat and a Sugar Glider) and have a two story house in need of my immediate attention to detail. My point is this, I have been so worried about who’s following me on Twitter, Instagram, my blog, Bloglovin, and Facebook and getting content out there on a 3 post schedule that the rest of my world has been neglected. And, I feel as though what started out as fun, has become one more chore to my list. So, I’m taking a step back. I am going to post once a week by Saturday of each week. It will be on Dental concerns, what’s happening in my life now, and a mixture of trips, fashion finds (bargins), etc. This is what I wanted this blog to be about. If no one follows, I’m not going to worry because in the end this is about me. I thank everyone in advance for following or keeping up with what’s happening, and as always, I welcome comments unless they are mean or cruel. I think life is full of enough crap already.
By the way, I’m standing with both of my boys in my featured image. They grow up soooo quickly. This was taken in 2014, at Panama City Beach our last night there (hubby had already left for home for a fishing tournament). Hopefully, we’ll get to return to PCB soon! Had a blast!
Until next time, y’all have a day full of Blessings!!!!
