About an hour ago I called my boyfriend to admit I have really been struggling with blogging recently. I felt a bit like I was calling Alcoholic Anonymous, finally admitting something I’ve been refusing to admit but apparently that’s the first step to recovery, right?
I’ve been struggling with it all, I rarely post on Instagram, my blog, YouTube and everything else. The only thing I have been posting on is Snapchat (username: alittleobsessed) as it’s a quick and easy way to procrastinate and it doesn’t involve too much effort.
I really feel like I have been failing and I hate this feeling. I’m very much of the belief that if you aren’t moving forward you’re moving backwards and with the lack of content I really do feel like I am moving backwards.
I’ve been blogging a long time, probably 7 years, all my adult life- actually even most of my teenage years and I love it but I am currently just not inspired. I told myself that once I was back from Berlin I’d be inspired again but that didn’t happen. I told myself the same thing when I went to Amsterdam but still no such luck. I’ve given my self a few days off, told myself I would start Monday or the 1st of March but here we are and I am still really struggling.
I think part of the reason is that I am suffering a little with winter blues, I’m waiting patiently for it to warm up and it seems to be getting colder. I also feel a little overwhelmed with all the emails I have to answer (totally my fault) and products I have to try. Sounds like such a pathetic excuse, I have too much makeup, but it can very much take over my whole house and life- although I am tackling this on Friday with a little help from my friend.
Luckily my friends have been offering me a little support and my boyfriend said the same thing happened to him when he played football everyday for two years but that the blues faded and he still loves playing.
I do think there is light at the end of the tunnel but I thought I would update you and hopefully offer a little bit of support to anyone else that is feeling this way. I’ll be back soon, I promise but I don’t want to blog for the sake of blogging and I am waiting to get my love back. I have some ideas for exciting posts but I feel like I haven’t been able to think them out properly.
Hope you all understand and will be here when I come back, I don’t think it’ll be too long, maybe a week or so.
Until then I would love to hear any tips you have to get me feeling inspired and ready to blog.
PS. Happy International Women’s Day- probably not the best day for me to be writing this post but it is what it is….
