Its amazing what a one week break can do for your mental state. I have always had a hard time staying completely focused and in love with my blog - don't get me wrong i love writing and occasionally i even love taking the photos it requires but sometimes it all starts to feel a little to heavy, too stifling and that's a feeling i like to avoid at all costs if i can. As of late I started to fall off the wagon (it happens, roll with it.) and my blog suffered, I wasn't motivated, opening up my website and producing a new blog post seemed tedious and a little scary. I found myself snapping photos I wasn't in love with, writing words that lacked feeling and just overall zero love or affection for this little ol platform of mine. I need to escape, get lost for awhile and see if I could dig up the feelings i had before, when pressing "publish" gave me a rush or when the words flowed effortlessly and nothing could stop them. Right now I feel good, I feel inspired again, writing down ideas and fleshing them out and figuring out the best way to execute them. Blogging is exciting again, I needed the time off to regroup, fall in love with writing and maybe a little bit with myself. I have always been an advocate of self love but I don't always practice what I preach so taking a step away to dig deep and practice all the self love I write/tweet/talk about. I'm hopeful this break was what I needed to get back on track but if I need to take another break I will because in the grand scheme of things, I'd rather get lost with myself so that I can learn to work through it all then put out blogposts/photos that don't matter to me.
