Okay, I’m in a slump. I’m coming down the home stretch, so close to completing my challenge of 365days, I have not missed a day AND today WHAM, I have hit a roadblock.
Of course, there is never a time where I have “nothing” to talk about, I have an array of topics in reserve that I have begun during the year that I can usually choose from and simply “tweek” depending on how I feel or what I want to say, before I share them with the world.
And right now, today, none of them inspire me, none of them push my buttons, nothing “feels” right. There are so many things I want to say and the words just come out “blah”. Maybe this is what they call “writers block” – whatever it is it is frustrating the hell out of me!
Normally “at home” this is where I rely on my wonderful children, my coach and the inspiring people around me to pull me out of my “funk” and over here it’s a little bit harder, especially as tomorrow is our 31st wedding anniversary and we seem so far away from home, from family, from friends.
So this today is my blog. Today, I acknowledge that sometimes things just don’t gel, sometimes things just feel flat – today is one of those days. Nothing really wrong, just in a slump. So guess what, I’m going to make a choice. I’m going to “chilI”, I’m not going to stress that my blog is late, I’m not going to pretend to have something inspiring to say. I’m just going to say a big hi to everyone, acknowledge that fact it’s one of those days, recognize how lucky I am and have a great day helping others learn and grow.
Tomorrow is a public holiday, here, International Labour Day (May Day) and we have arranged to celebrate our big day with new friends we have made in China. We will no doubt spend a whole lot of time, talking about home, sharing stories and photos of friends and family – in a word, un-slump!
Today, make a choice, live with it – tomorrow will be here in no time!
