I don't know what has gotten into me [or better yet, what hasn't gotten into me] recently but this writing stuff is becoming hard. Like real hard. Like that's what she said type of hard. I constantly think back to 5 years ago when I started this bad boy and think "how in the world did I have something to say EVERY FREAKING DAY?!?!" Granted, 99% of the items that were published probably had no right taking up real estate space on the internet, but shoot - I didn't care, at least I had something to publish. These days it pains me to think of a topic and so instead of trying, I just don't. Another day goes by, another unpublished post happens and the cycle continues. It's the kind of stuff that you always learned in school - "when the going gets tough, quit!" or something along those lines. I can't remember if that's exactly how it goes but that's clearly what I remember ;)
I was just speaking to somebody recently and she asked me what my goals were for my blog over the next six months. Talk about a dagger in the stomach. Uhhhhh oh right, goals. Yeah, I had those once - so you mean I still should?
Last night I took this struggle to my facebook page and posed the question of what would YOU like to hear from me because Lord knows I don't know what type of content to be pushing out right now. So many of you responded and were so helpful with the main answer being fashion type posts. Thankfully I like to wear clothes [although I do love me some nudity, not gonna lie] so that should work sometimes. But I also like cheetos and people tripping and falling in front of me so I feel like I can't neglect those heavy topics either.
The moral of the story is that these pictures were taken several months ago and I just found them on my computer and remembered "crap, never published these" and so then when you guys told me you like fashion AND a little bit of real life I thought BAM, today's blog post! An outfit and a story about how I don't know what I am doing around here anymore but whooooooooooo cares, because we have shooooooooooooooes.
Anyhow, I know I talk a lot about confusion and direction and clarity [more so lack of it] and "blah blah blah cry me a freaking river woman" around here often, but I've always been one who wants to talk about exactly what is on her mind. And today, that's that. Well and the fact that I haven't watched any of Bachelor in Paradise yet, how my roots are down to my elbows and that I think I just realized I have nothing to talk about because I haven't gone anywhere on vacation recently so now I must book a trip to heal all. Good things do come to those who process life. Tahiti anyone?
On that note, I'm off to go take some advil [who gets sick in the summer? I can just feel it coming on between my ears feeling like they are about to explode and the little drips of snot that have begun falling on my keyboard while writing this post [legit, blogging is so pretty]. Anybody out there know how to overcome writer's block and have helpful tips that have helped you? I know I could google that ish but that sounds boring and I like hearing from you better. Speak up, the future of my blog is in your hands. No pressure or anything but make it good.
