The comeback kid

Hi everyone! So recently I’ve lost my mojo. Not just my blogging mojo but just my mojo to do anything. I have just felt a bit off, like I just don’t know what I’m doing with my life at the moment. I feel like I’m just lacking in a lot of areas in my life, with my blog being one of them. I feel like my content is lacking in particular.

At the moment all I have been posting is book reviews which I like sharing but I feel like my content isn’t varied enough. I keep trying to make a plan on what I can do to kind of take my blog to the next level but honestly the things I want to do and say I will do and what I actually end up doing are two very different things. Over the last week I have made myself a long list of things I would quite like to do for my blog so I’m kind of hoping I can achieve something with it.

Going back to losing my life mojo, I feeling like I’m drifting at the moment. I chose not to really look for a job for various reasons when I quit my job last year but at the moment I feel like I’m at a cross road kind of because although I know what I’m doing as of September, I still have three ish months to go before then and as I’m not earning any money I obviously don’t have a lot in my bank. I have been looking for work recently but in honesty I really want to work for myself. The one thing that is really hard is trying to think what I can do for myself to earn money. I won’t lie, I don’t consider myself to be a social media wiz or anything so it’s not an avenue I feel like I could pursue. I am always thinking I could do something crafty but again I’m not crafty, like I don’t know how to use a sewing machine so it isn’t like I could make things like clothes and I just can’t think of what else I could really do.

However, I am really determined to get myself and my blog back on track. I’ve brainstormed some blog post ideas and a list of things I want to do in terms of my blog and social media channels. I just want to enjoy my life and not make everything into a chore. I am determined to take everything in my stride.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Awh Abbie I’m sorry to hear you’ve been feeling like this! I can definitely relate and there’s definitely times where I just feel like I have no idea what I’m doing, what I’m supposed to be doing or how I could possibly get out of the slump that I’m feeling. It’s like everything feels pointless you know? I think making a plan on paper is a great step forward and I hope your blog and all these new ideas can bring you out of it! Look forward to reading them, keep your chin up! xxx

  2. It’s so inspirational that you have shared this. I can imagine so many people feel like this (me being one sometimes!). Personally, I find my energy levels have everything to do with these slumps, so when I get my exercise and eating right I find my slump usually ends (gradually not overnight).

    Obviously it’s different for everyone though and to be honest the last thing I usually want to do is actually exercise and eat vegetables when I feel like that.

    What job did you do last year?

  3. I have definitely been there. Actually those feelings of stagnation come to me way to often. Be patient, don’t rush things, you will gain momentum back soon. As long as you don’t give up. Focus on your passions and you will soon feel yourself again! Thank you for sharing Abbie! ❤

  4. Sometimes, we go through that slump and it’s totally understandable. Sometimes, we need a little time out from things in life to get ourselves together. Glad to hear that you’re making your comeback!

  5. I can relate to this so much! I actually had periods of being on this really bad mindset after graduating as I was having such a hard time finding a job and just did not know if the time and effort I was putting in to my blog was worth it! What really helped was to know that all I can do is put in as much work as I can and to just stop worrying about things I have no control over! I really hope you feel better soon! 💗💗
