I have been away for a while and I feel really bad about it. I said I would be posting more blog posts, but I didn’t and I really wanted to do it, but I couldn’t. The past few months I have been really stressed when it comes to my nursing degree and I have been working really hard on it. But in the process of doing so, have I been neglecting things and hobbies which bring me a lot of joy. This includes blogging and reading.
Since I haven’t been blogging, I also haven’t been reading. As of right now in 2020 I have only read 5 books so far. For a lot of people this would be a great number, but for me it is usual the amount I read in a month and we are already near the end of the fourth month of 2020. I do hope when I have everything done by the end of May, that I will have more peace to do the things which I love.
But in the meantime I do hope to get back into the habit of blogging and the habit of reading in general. I do have to say, since I haven’t really been able to blog for such a long time and I have been stressing about it for a long time, I do experience some negative feelings towards blogging at the moment.
Right now blogging feels like a chore, something I have to do (which I put upon myself). But I do remember the joy I felt when I first started out blogging and I really want to get that feeling back. Have you experienced this before? If yes, how did you deal with it? Any tips?
I also have this grant idea to blog for every day for the month of May, but again it is something which feels like I have to do, because I put that pressure on myself. So I will try and work on this, since I do think a whole month of blogging might bring the joy back and get it back into my system to work on my blog, but I won’t promise anything.
So that is what has been on my mind the past few weeks/months. I have the week of this week, so I hope to find some time to read and blog (and make videos and take photos for IG). It doesn’t really help that I am a perfectionist and with that I want to do a lot of things. I am my worst enemy when it comes to stuff like this XD.
So, enough about me. I would love to hear how you are doing. How are you handling the current situation in the world? What has brought you joy lately? Any big changes in your life as of recent?
