I want to get back to being the blogger I worked so hard to become..
I have been blogging just little over 3 years and over that time I have written hundreds of blog posts and I have been consistent with it. But also over the last 3 years, a lot has changed. More than I can explain in one post. I try to keep up with writing as much as my mind will let me. I started blogging as an outlet for me and it always will be that before anything else including a career.
My blog has been a place for me to write down my thoughts but when something happens in my personal life that just can’t be shared on the blog. I have no where that I feel like I can write it down and in a way, I feel as if I am letting my blog down. Unfortunately in 2019, that has happened quite a bit. There has things that I can’t go in to detail about for one reason for another. The biggest problem is when I feel my mental health slipping because of these personal things, I can’t talk openly about it and get it off my chest on my blog like I normally would and that affects my blog and writing massively.
But then my mental health slips, my blog does get hit the hardest. I don’t write at all. No blog posts, I don’t even want to take photos. Where I would normally take photos every single day, I can go days and days without taking one. I just feel a complete mind block to writing and being a blogger. The last couple of weeks have been just that.
For weeks and weeks, I managed to get so many blog posts out. I was getting ahead of work for once and my blog and socials grew massively because of that but then some personal stuff happened and I hit a brick wall. I didn’t want to get my laptop out and some times I didn’t even want to look at my phone. It makes me feel awful.
I love writing and blogging and being on social media. I just want to go back to being the blogger I worked so hard to become and I will get back there eventually. It just might take some time.

Hey babe, be kind to yourself. It is okay to have your mental Health slip because you come out stronger. Welcome back!
I feel this post so much. I had to start a whole new blog just to renew my stride. Because, looking back at all of the things that I wrote over the years, it just hurt to look at.
As you said, so much happens within our lives that we just drop our writing completely at times. I’m hoping to get back to that point. So it goes.
