Rut, Tut Tut
You guys...we are only a few days in to 2018 and I am realizing I am in a serious rut with thing. Mainly things in my blogging life? Or probably life in general as well. Staying busy and having content to blog about really isn't a problem. I think it boils down to getting organized and having the desire to make ways to stay organized. I was talking to my friend Nessa last month about an idea I had to organize my blogging. I decided to wait on starting it since we were going to be gone out of town for 10 days and then I would not see what I had posted up.
Step back a minute..I've been all about being digital, having online calendars, reminders, events, notifications but the past few weeks I've had/wanted to write thing down on lists. So I can actually take a pen and cross off tasks I accomplish. What is wrong with me? Maybe I feel like my online apps arent working for me anymore (although I still heart and use Wunderlist) but for blogging, I want to see everything for my day/week/month all at a glance. I want to see goals and plans written out and hung up somewhere, not stashed in my phone or ipod. So weird, right?
Anyways, the other rut I am in is consuming. I drink in photos, status updates, videos, etc., all.day.long. No joke. From when I wake up and am checking my emails and all the notifications on my phone to throughout the day when I sit for a moment at the phone or computer and then minutes turn in to a lot of time gone by. I wouldn't say wasted exactly but I am consuming SO MUCH else of what others are doing. Traveling, crafts, planning, cooking, there are so many awesome ideas out there and I pin, save, tweet and share but I rarely DO any of what see. Which makes me so sad! So maybe my one little word (olw) for this year should have been DO instead of SIMPLIFY. Ha.
Anyone else run into these issues? Have you figured out a way to solve them? Leave me a comment below & have a productive day :)
