Some weeks (probably about once a month) I find blogging a bit of a struggle and every time I hit a struggle it’s sorta centered around a different “theme”. Usually some internal struggle I’ve created in my mind, something small triggers it and I start over thinking like it’s my job. Sometimes it’s a worry about over sharing, or uninteresting sharing, not up to snuff sharing, is anyone even reading my sharing, I can’t find time to share, and the list goes on and on. It’s probably a struggle many other bloggers can relate too (maybe?) or just humans in general – no matter what you are doing there may be similar struggle that goes on often, I know it was and is like that for me with work. It can be positive, it helps keep me on my toes my oooover thinking forces me to reevaluate what I’m doing pretty often (maybe/probably too often) – he bad side to that is the struggle part, it really hurts the brain.
This week I’m struggling with words. I know as I write a post putting words into sentences, it sounds ridiculous (probably reads more ridiculous) but hear me out. Usually (for me) I have pictures and then the rambles just fall out like shooting word bullets (pew! pew! pew!) or verbal diarrhea, whatever you want to call it. This week I feel like I have cute pictures but no words are falling out. Then today I realized it’s because I have been focusing my energy and work hours (nap time and bedtime) to a project that is requiring a lot of my creative energy – I’m sorry, I hate vague cryptic sentences like that too. Since my work hours actually it’s more like time to blog, clean, work and get everything done hours are currently being focused on this new creative project (I promise I will share soon!) I’m having a hard time finding energy for words. Basically I’m a little tapped. I really love having a few things on the go at once, I work really great when I’m multi tasking but weeks like this It’s a bit detrimental to my productivity – and usually the blog is where the struggle shows it self because family (always numero uno), life and contract related projects just have to come first that’s how it goes.
I had hoped to write something really sweet about our Mother-Daughter time with these pictures but since I’m feeling rather “wordless”, that didn’t really work out this week. They don’t really go with the post, but they make me smile really big, so there they are.
