It has been a serious minute since I last posted so please pardon my absence. My blog started to kick off right before I started my new job and since working, I’ve found it to be extremely difficult to physically and mentally get back into the groove I once had. Even sewing became sparing (although I managed to make this super cute top that I will soon post) because the thought of doing anything creative would use up the little energy I had after work. But that really has to come to an end.
I can’t begin to tell you how many times I sit and write out posts in my head that I want to share or purchase fabric for clothes I want to sew but never get around to it. They just remain a thought. There are creative projects and ideas God placed on my heart for this space and yet I always seem to find something to distract me from following through. At this point, I can’t even blame fear because these are harmless blog posts and creative projects (weeelll…some sewing projects I am afraid of butchering lol). It boils down to pure laziness, procrastination, and a lost sight of my goals and prayers. The one thing that inspired me to be expressive and flex my creative muscles, I turned it into a chore and that’s where I went wrong.
As I am writing this at 4:52 am (Yes, I literally jumped out of my bed to let y’all know how serious I am about getting back into this groove) I already feel better and a little silly for allowing this to wait so long. I strive for the same groove and energy seen in the Good Times painting towards this blog and all my creative projects. The groove will still take time but I needed this impromptu writing moment to motivate me to be proactive about working at it. I also hope to be better at posting regularly on my social media to continue to connect with you all so that you won’t think I’ve fallen off the face of the earth.
To all my fellow bloggers and creatives, I am sure you can understand my struggle and I hope that if you have found yourself in the same position, please join me in this impromptu writing moment and break the ice that has been holding back your creativity. Don’t get caught up on it being “perfect”, just get it out there. Let’s connect via Instagram or e-mail and let’s discuss ideas and inspire one another. We don’t have to be ashamed for the time away but we also don’t have to keep it going.
Thank you all so much for sticking around and look forward to my next post to come soon. Until next time, let’s get to work!
