Well it’s been quite a while since I sat down to write a blog post and I’m not going to lie, it’s a bit scary. It’s been over a month since I last hit publish and I’m not really sure how it’s been so long.
Basically, I got into a funk. Not really about blogging. More at life in general.
I’ve been really down, and I’m not 100% sure why. I know a lot of it has to do with not enjoying my course at uni. I’ve also had a tonne of uni deadlines, been at work a lot and generally just felt a bit shit.
I don’t really know why I was in my funk and that bothered me and got me down even more. Normally, I know why I’m feeling down and can eventually figure a way out whereas this time I really didn’t. There was no specific thing which triggered my funk, I just woke up one day and wasn’t feeling great.
I didn’t feel like creating content. I didn’t feel like instagramming or being on social media. So I took an unplanned break. I had no clue when I would feel ‘better’ and feel like creating content again. Part of me thought I’d just stop all together and the weird thing was, that didn’t seem like such a bad option. Part of me felt ready to just stop blogging, even though it’s something I’ve loved doing for the past few years.
The good news is I’m not giving up on my blog. I don’t know what it was but yesterday I suddenly felt a lot clearer and happier and just less funk like. I had a craving to create content again and to be creative. I wanted to listen to my happy (very festive) music and didn’t feel the need to stay tucked up in bed. For the first time in a few weeks, I managed to get up pretty easily this morning and didn’t have a sense of dread for the day ahead.
I’m not going to put a schedule out there of what’s going to happen on the blog and YouTube channel. All I know is right now, I have content ideas and I want to start creating stuff again! Hopefully I won’t have another funk and can carry on creating content. But, if I do, I’m not going to beat myself up about it and just let it happen.
