The Purge: When You Have More on Your Plate Than You Can Handle

If you think this post is about me wanting a few hours to kill people without consequence like in the movie…you are wrong and something is seriously wrong with you. Please seek help, immediately.


Anyhow, this post is about that moment when you realize your “plate” is just too full and it’s time to get rid of some things. Yeah that type of purge. Lately, my plate has been full. There’s nothing wrong with it because I can remember a time when I just had too much idle time and actually prayed for a plate filled with dope opportunities. I have that now, but it’s also to the point where things are starting to spill over. It’s like on Thanksgiving when everyone rushes to fill their plates up with enough food as to where they won’t have to get up for seconds, but then the paper plate isn’t strong enough to handle all that heavy food so it starts to bend and break and fold in….yeah that’s where I’m at right now.


I currently write and produce content…mainly digital for a plethora of sites which means that majority of my day is spent in front of a computer with mush brain. I produce content for all of these sites while at the same time managing my own and working to build my own brand. I often find myself neglecting my own personal projects which is where the issues lie. There are so many things that I want to do for Wanderlust Musings beyond blogging. I want to host events, workshops, brand merchandise, travel, tours, etc. and I’m afraid my plate has just been too full. As I’m buried under deadlines on a weekly basis, I’m beginning to see that there are some things that I can most likely let go.

You know that feeling you get when things are winding down? You’re either running out of ideas or you’re just not motivated enough to even think of any. That’s when it’s time to let go. I’ve decided to purge some of the things on my plate in order to move forward. In moving onward and upward, it allows someone else to step up and step in.

Most of the times we feel like we have to have it all. We have to be everywhere, have everything and be in everything in order to be or stay relevant. I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter what all you do that keeps you relevant, but it’s the quality of what you do with what you have and sometimes less is more. Less allows for more intimate relationships better connections and interesting content. So I’ve purged my plate. I’ve lessened my load so that I can build a better brand for myself…for you all.

Guess it’s time I practice what I wear. Lol
