It’s been a few months since I updated the blog here. I keep saying I’m busy and things are going on and all of that is true. But the bottom line is that I’m not making the time. Not that I’m doing it on purpose, but that’s what’s going on.
I got a new job, working overnights, so it’s been a bit of an adjustment on my body. I’ve been super tired and trying hard to find a new routine for myself.
So I wake up around 3pm now, and my routine consists of me getting coffee, and sitting down to check the computer. It’s always writing related, but not always writing itself. It’s email, or it’s blogging, or it’s website stuff, or it’s just listening to writing podcasts. I know you can’t edit a blank page, but the core of my problem has been that I just don’t feel like it. I’m unmotivated cuz it seems like such a big thing to dive back into when I’ve been out for a year. So, motivation has been what I’ve been working on the most.
I’ve also been getting into micro habits to try to help as well. Changing or adding one little new habit for 21 days before I add another thing. I know it takes time to change one year of inactivity. These little things don’t seem like they do a lot, but I feel different than I used to. Less defeated or overwhelmed, I guess. More hopeful that I’ll get back to my old ways.
We shall see how I’m doing in a couple weeks.
