I have a confession to make…my life isn’t perfect. In fact it seems to be far from it lately! Both Steven and I have hit a bit of a wall content-wise when it comes to our writing. Of course this is nothing new, it happens to the best of us. But when you find yourself in a slump, unmotivated to do anything (except veg out in front of Netflix), boy does that feeling just drag you through the mud.
Today we hit a real peak in our frustration when Steven had to drive me out to an event on a day where he already had a lot of work to do. Since we were heading out anyway, I asked him to take some outfit photos for me. The problem with doing this spur-the-moment is that I was having some major issues finding a location near to where we were. Not even one decent wall! It actually caused a bit of an argument as both of our schedules were conflicting and I was ill-prepared to take photos. So, I decided to call it quits and just head home. Clearly upset.
Can I just say something right now? I actually have the best husband in the world.
While we sat in silence, I realized we were heading the wrong way (it took me a while as I’m very bad with directions). Turns out Steven had other plans. Instead of driving home he took me to St. Patrick’s Island bridge, where I’ve been wanting to take photos for a while now. The funny thing is that on top of an already not great day, it was incredibly windy on the bridge. There comes a point when you need to realize that it’s just going to be one of those days and laugh it off. Luckily Steven was able to snap some decent shots and afterwards we went to treat ourselves at Village Ice Cream. Anyone who says that ice cream can’t solve all your problems is a liar.
So here I am, it’s nearly eight o’clock and I’m finally wrapping up this post. Steven is typing away behind me, getting things done and I can’t wait to just collapse on the couch.
I guess the point of this post is to give you a little look into my life. It’s not always (or even most of the time) rainbows and butterflies. I’ve personally been struggling a lot with coming up with content for LSS (hopefully it doesn’t show). And after the whirlwind of a month that June was, I find myself behind on scheduling posts quite often, which I used to be so great at.
The good news is that I believe today was my turning point. I took a good hard look at what I wasn’t doing right and I am ready to make some changes! First step…set an alarm clock and get to work early.
What do you do to get over a slump? I’d be interested to hear your answers, especially from those who also work from home!
