Go with the Flow - Beating the blogging funk!

Everything that begins also ends. Make peace with that and all will be well. - Buddha

 Sister-in-law was on the phone with hubby and asking whether I would still actively list additional jewelry creation in my online shop. I have not added anything in a while (really long while). Tell you the truth, I have a crazy habit. I go through what I fancily call "Phases". One day creating like a maniac, the next day, totally don't want to do anything with it. 

I bounce like a ping-pong ball in between creating and blogging. Here then there. I find it hateful at times especially when I need to create or blog about something and all I have is total inertia!

Hubby told his sister, "She's got the blogging bug right now" - which is true. I have found that everytime I fight the Phase I'm in, I just get frustrated and end up in a deeper funk. So, I let it rule me until it wears away.

If you ever find yourself in a funk: (which most of us do)
Don't fight it. 

Look around you. There's always something to write about.

Post a picture or a video clip  in place of a non-existent story.

Get a guest blogger to cover for you.

Zensible approach: Meditate. It's calming. And when your calm, your mind is refreshed which makes it easier for thoughts to flow.

As for me, I just go with the flow. Right now it's working. Up until of course, I'm obliged to help create a school project for kiddo, then you don't want to be around me. Or it's Game over. Say, Ommm...

  1. I do the same thing - every time I get a new interest, I'm ready to jump in with both feet, and it makes all the "old" interests seem unimportant. Usually I eventually get renewed interests in them down the road ... eventually.
