We're talking about every-other-waking-thought stress.
What am I going to eat for breakfast today and what can I do to boost traffic to my blog? What do I need to buy at the store today and how do I get more comments on my blog? I wonder what we'll do tonight and what am I going to write about on my blog.
Yeah. Blogging is awesome. But when it's not going well it can ruin your life.
Okay, well maybe that's an exaggeration (ish). But I'm sure you know what I mean, especially if you've made the transition from "I have a blog" to "I am a blogger".
I have been experiencing this same type of lull in my blogging lately, life briefly fell apart and when I picked up the pieces blogging was just not as front-and-center as it had been, and it felt good.
Until I checked my stats (you know you know what I'm talking about!).
So the other night I'm sitting outside on my back steps, thinking about my blog - it's late, so it's dark and cool and everyone is asleep but me and it's the perfect time to do some good hard thinking, maybe a little meditation as well.
Sometimes, in moments like these you have a thought that completely changes your perspective.
Here's what that thought was for me:
Okay, so I 'm no expert, and this might not be universally helpful advice, but it's worked for me. I embraced the lull and accepted this quieter time as an opportunity and do you want to know what happened? I suddenly became unstuck, ideas started to flow.
So I am choosing to embrace this season, accept it, think of it as a blessing and stay unstuck!
