When you don't have it in you...

Lately I just haven't had it in me to write. I don't have writer's block. Trust me there are lots of thoughts.

I don't have energy.


I have been so exhausted from work that the thought of coming home and writing my heart out seems so exhausting. By taking a break for a month (!) I am missing you all like bananas! I miss writing. I miss being creative.

I am slowly recuperating from a month of super long hours at work but am excited for the possibilities of a new school year. I have lots on my mind; thoughts of going back to school for my doctorate is one major thought that consumes my mind. I have missed learning. I want to learn about so many things it is unreal. But right now with my current job, I don't have it in me.

I know that everything happens for a reason. I just want to have it in me again.


What do you do when you feel like you don't have energy to function?

I can SO relate. I have so much I want to write but I am often so tired (emotionally and physically) when I get home from work that there is no way I can write. It is tough to find a balance. And my house is a mess b/c instead of cleaning I use my free time to relax b/c I just don't have enough me time!! You'll find your groove.

Sometimes you just need a break and a change of pace. Maybe pick up something that you find meditative - like knitting or crocheting (like something in a straight line back and forth - maybe a scarf), weeding the garden, laying on a blanket and look at cloud shapes, try zentangle if you like doodling in patterns. Work on little things that you can just do without "intention"…

These things often lead to figuring out where you are, how you got there, and what things can you change that will make your life - little by little - more of how you want and need it to be to function better.

Hope you get your groove back :) Big hugs…

I was in a slump earlier this summer. Sometimes we all need a little break. Take as long as you need and come back refreshed. We'll be here! ;)

I have these slumps! Good luck, friend!

We all have these seasons, I'm happy (read:downright GIDDY) that my girls are back at school and I can get back to working regular hours. I was so crabby when I didn't have time to sew. The orders and demand don't stop, just that there is only so much "me" to go around. I'm gonna follow you, seems like you are someone I could learn a thing or two from :)

Whenever I feel myself thinking, "I'm such a bad blogger!", I remember that the other parts of my life are what make me a whole person, and while I'd love to have energy for a thousand men, I don't. It's okay to feel a little drained, especially with the crazy month you must have just had! Take some time for yourself, a long bath and a few good meals, and come back to the blog when you don't feel like tearing your hair out!

I went through that for awhile as well and the only post on my blog were posts just to posts and I hated it. Now I'm feeling back in the rhythm and really enjoying blogging. I miss you and can't wait to have you "back"!

Hang in there! We have move-in at BSU this weekend, so I'm gonna be there soon. It does take a lot of effort to write thoughtful posts :)

Everyone goes through it... get a pedicure and eat a cupcake.. its so nice to give yourself a well deserved break! P.S.- I had a super stressful week and ate the most yummy cupcake tonight and am feeling like 80% less stress!! If I don't think about the calories, they dont count, right? Right.... maybe. ~XxOo~

Babygirl... I got myself a new job OUTSIDE of res life. My professional life no longer consumes me or stresses me out to my core the way res life did. Some people are cut out for that field, I am not. I love student affairs and higher education... and I found my niche in admissions- which I love more than anything. Admissions is definitely MY place to be... I think you need to really look around and figure out if this is where you're meant to be.

Hey girl! Glad you found me here, so we can be pen pals and blog friends! :)

I can totally relate to having trouble being motivated to blog. Some days are just so hard that I just don't have any energy to read blogs or write them. I've taken several blog breaks lately hoping it will help. Sometimes it does but sometimes it doesn't. I hope things will slow down for you and you can get back to your regular blogging!
