Catch the couch conversations on instagram @embracingnelle
Good Morning my y’all this is totally overdue. But my schedule was placed a little behind. But I am finally here. Back with another Couch Conversation With Nelle. And this week on the couch we are talking about something important you need for the new year. What keeps you going when quitting is not an option. .
Let me share a little story with you guys. Since the last couch conversation, my life took a drastic change. My health became somewhat of a problem and mentally I was not in the right headspace. SO! it was not by choice but I removed myself a little from everything. Of course, this sent me into a small amount of depression leaving me wondering why I was doing everything that I do. Mostly, I was asking myself why I find myself in front of my computer writing my post and partaking in the creative endeavors that I partake in.
And as I sat on my couch contemplating these matters. It kinds of hit me. I do what I do because I like doing it. I love seeing my work and sharing them with you guys. Putting together the posts so that you guys can see and enjoy them. I love interacting with yall on Facebook, Instagram, and the blog. This is my passion and that’s why I do what I do. Those reasons are keeping me going when quitting is not an option.
