Getting Over the Worlds Longest Writer's Block

21:48 Kelly Wheelhouse 0 Comments

Back in 2015, I used to write on my blog on a regular basis, and I loved it! Writing has always been one of my favourite hobbies, and having a blog where I can freely write all my thoughts is wonderful. However, I seem to have hit a writer's block that never wants to end. Last year I barely posted anything after re-starting my life following a breakup, but when 2017 started I promised myself I would get back into writing on my blog once again. However, it doesn't seem as easy as it may have sounded in my head. In January I re-vamped and re-launched my blog, but not long after this, my boyfriend became very ill, which caused me to stop posting anything on here. And since then I never got back into it like I expected I would.
My life has been full of adventures, plans for the future, fun days and many thoughts. All things I could have been writing about, but haven't. I've not been taking my laptop out with me like I usually would as it is in need of a new battery which will cost me £200, and when I'm piling into my savings account for my future, it's not so easy to splash out that much money on something that isn't 'essential'. My laptop isn't the only reason I've not been writing, my life has sort of felt like it's been on overdrive the whole time. Everything has been whizzing past at the speed of light and each day has blurred into the next. I'm not saying this in a bad way, as I've had some really amazing days, but on a typical work day, I don't tend to do as much as I used to. I don't really find the time to sit alone with my thoughts long enough to write those thoughts down into a blog. I work and sleep day after day and that's all that seems to happen. Then comes the 'weekend' (my weekend is Sunday and Monday rather than Saturday and Sunday) where both days always seem so busy that it doesn't feel like I've had any time off.
I'm at the point now where I feel like I have to press pause, step back for a moment, and appreciate what is actually going on in my life. Each day needs to be individual and I must remember it for unique reasons. Perhaps I should start writing down something good that has happened to me each day to remind me that it's not just another piece of the blurry puzzle, its a day- something individual that needs to be loved for the right reasons, not added to the pile of 'just another day'.
This blog is all about my life, and I can't write about it if I have nothing to say. I'm not saying things are boring right now because they aren't. I'm loving every minute of my life, but I need to appreciate it all a little more.
I have a long list of things to look forward to in the future, things I never thought I'd do, but they will happen within the next few years. So in the meantime, I just want to share things a bit at a time so you can understand my feelings in the lead-up to my future.
I've always focused on writing long posts trying to cover as much as I can, but I might start doing some smaller posts just to get me back into blogging. I think at this point I need to take it a step at a time and not worry about what other people think about me or my life.
I have some post ideas to write up soon, but I think I need to make this blog more personal in the meantime.
Do you ever feel like your life is in fast-forward? If you do, how do you slow things down?
