It’s ok guys, we have finally made it to 2017! It’s been one hell of a year for me, and for the world, and so I wanted to take a little look back at my resolutions from last year and see if I stuck to my guns! Plus set myself a few challenges for the year ahead. So here goes…
I’m not going to do what I normally do when I haven’t posted for a while: apologise, promise to be better and then convince myself I’m over it. Because I have obviously demonstrated… THAT METHOD DOES NOT WORK. So once again, I have found myself at a place where I try to sit in front of my laptop, look at my list of planned posts ready to be written and yet I cannot bring myself to write.
There’s no one thing that’s causing it; I’m happy at work, my personal life has no big dramas going on and I’m settled into my routine. But I just cannot bring myself to find the inspiration to write and it’s really bugging me.
I love writing. My blog is my one creative outlet that is mine and mine alone – not being redirected, given notes or judged by people who could potentially employ me for future work (well maybe there are those people.. but I’m not fussed about that!!!). So why have I lost my mojo with it!? I can’t tell you.
All I do know is that I am in a MASSIVE winter slump. I don’t think I have any condition like SAD or whatever, but I’m sure I’m not the only person out there who finds that when winter comes along… all i want to do is hibernate like a giant hedgehog with several bottles of wine and an endless supply of Galaxy Minstrels. Actually, I know i’m not the only person that feels this way. So i thought it wise to post this openly on here. Tell the internet world that I’M STILL HERE BUT I AM IN A METAPHORICAL DUVET DEN AND I WILL BE BACK OUT SOON. I’m going to make a conscious effort to try and post more (especially now as we’re headed into festive loveliness) and I’m making steps to try and get myself out of this funk.
I say strangers because I have been in a virtual black hole of no-blogging-i-have-nothing-interesting-to-write-about-ness for the last month. AND IT SUCKS. And so I am here to break this barrier down as it is driving me mad.
For those of you who are avid followers of my blog, I can only apologise, and I hope that you did not think I had died/lost my hands/forgotten my password to log into my blog. Unfortunately, it’s more simple as that. I lost my motivation.
