This week has been very low-key, although many of the past weeks have been the same. I feel bad that I don’t have much more to say but I hope your week has been going smoothly. I’ve been resting a lot as I haven’t been sleeping very well lately. I’m finding myself unmotivated and having a hard time getting back in the blogging saddle. My home life has been so boring lately I don’t have much to share or talk about. So let’s try this: Tell me what has been a rise and a fall from your week and how I can possibly encourage you this coming week? I want to motivate and encourage you all. March Goals and Intentions and a review of February’s will be up this week.
My Rise: talking to my sisters and getting in better communication.
My Fall: Worrying about my mom and her health/her condition or state of being. (please pray, I’m just realizing she isn’t as able as she once was.) Also not blogging because at the end of the day- I love this.
Instead of a featured post this week I’m just going to ramble a bit about what I’ve learned and continue to learn about consistency and inspiration. I’m trying to stay motivated like every other blogger out there. Staying on top of content when you’re in a funk or having a hard time in “real life” is extremely difficult. This past week we had some family events happen that we were all really worried about- so I had to take a few days (a week) off from the blog. I needed it too anyway because I was feeling exhausted and just drained. Unmotivated and uninspired. I have a stockpile of ideas and brain dumps and yet still I was wandering in a mindless headspace. Since my family has taken a few steps and is in better communication now, I feel a bit more refreshed and able to come back. I’m going to pace myself this week and do one post at a time. In the meantime, I’ve been journaling more written words, and in this difficult and frustrating time that became very cathartic. So if you would like to use what I have (and I love it and constantly link to it) this Instant Happy Journal has changed my life.
I know that without consistency you leave readers and followers who enjoy your content wondering and in a limbo of sorts. Not like it’s life or death but you tend to lose those who come back to your blog for lack of a regular posting schedule. I was doing really good about this until last week and that’s a bit disappointing. But I’m getting back on the so-called saddle and I hope I can continue to bring you content that is relatable and brightens your day.
Inspiration can strike you anywhere and at any time even in the shower (which I’m sure has happened to us all) so that’s helpful. So be sure to always have a notebook and pen near you or have a specific sheet of notes saved on your phone for blog post ideas. An easy way to come up with content when you’re stumped is to think of what is relevant or going on in the mainstream right now and what you’d enjoy seeing on a blog of this type. Lately, I’ve been really saving all my good ideas so stay tuned and find out what they are.
