Finding Myself And Voice Back.

Mont blanc pearlsandpencil

Tap. Tap. Tap tap. Tap.
I have been holding my pen for about 30 minutes and all i have done is make music out of it. Tap. Tap. again and i am done. I can’t seen to write anything. I pick up my phone scroll through instagram, close it. Open twitter, scroll through, retweet, like, want to comment but naah, close it. Open pinterest, pin & pin some more, close it. Try to write again but nothing.

I have been like this for a few months now. I have been juggling blogging and working full time [which has taken practically almost all my time] which has kinda sucked the creative juices out of me. I have felt like my life has been pulled in million different directions. I have had no drive, no motivation or no interest in creating for my brand as a whole. In the past months everything became a task, writing a post, posting on instagram, tweeting [not like i do much of that anyways].

I decided to take a step back, relax, pray, think, read books, retreat from social media a little and get to a point where i felt i was mentally, physically and emotionally stable.

During my time away, one thing i know i want to do is let people take away something tangible when they read my posts, captions, tweets or whatever i put out on the internet. How would i do that? By taking each day as it comes and putting in that little effort every single day. 

Now that i know what my major goal is, everything is clearer than before.
So if you have managed to make it to the end of my brain dump and the end of this post, thanks for reading. Thanks for coming back. Thanks for understanding. And thanks for hanging in there for me because pearls and pencil is finding her way back in to your hearts.

    Juggling working full -time and blogging at the same time can be exhausting! Take a break if you need, it usually helps me too 🙂 Btw, you look stunning!

    Oh I know the struggle of balancing full time job and blogging…. it’s like we have 2 full time jobs! But I keep having to remind myself of the rewards of blogging to keep myself going and motivated.

    Sometimes is so stressful to handle full time work and blogging. When motivation is lost, one step back always help. Wonderful outfit! Love your colorful skirt!

    I can understand how you feel. I have found that planning posts has helped me when I am not motivated. Then I am posting on the schedule and I don’t have to worry so much because I have a fall back. Then slowly motivation comes back so I start more posts in drafts. Not sure if that helped at all but I wanted to share, blogger to blogger.
