MacBooks and Macchiatos

There's this thing I've been going through lately.  For a while I would sit down with every intention to blog, but every time I sat down to do it nothing came out. I know it's not blogger burnout, because I have tons of post drafts and ideas. For the longest I couldn't figure out what it was, and then it hit me....

I only want to give my readers the best.  I want every single one of you and every new reader that finds this site to leave this blog inspired.  I want anyone who comes to this blog to truly have a unique and wonderful experience, one that they feel is worth sharing and returning for.

For a minute I thought I had lost myself in my world of blogging, but then I took the time to write down what I like to call "my truths."  I did this simply as a way to get back in touch with myself, my life goals, and my blog goals.  This immediately made me snap out of my funk. See a few of my truths below...

My Truths

❤ I love beautiful things & I'm intrigued by them.

❤ I can be a little little lazy sometimes.

❤ I am very ambitious & have huge dreams.

❤ I want to build and empire

❤ I really love blogging, even though I don't know what to blog about at times.

❤ I truly believe that dreams come true.

❤ I LOVE connecting with creative people. I thrive on it.

❤ I am interested in all things self love, positive energy, and gratitude.

After I did this I felt so much better and I felt much more in tune with what my main goals in life and for this blog are. I thought this would be a good self care activity to share with you because it's such a simple way to center yourself. If you'd like to try it, check it out below.

  4. Love this! I've been thinking about writing down my blog goals. Love your leggings!


  5. I'm not saying this because I like you but because i genuinely mean it- almost every time i read one of your post it makes me feel inspired. I love this post and sometimes you do have to step back and take a look at things around you and recollect! Oh, and love the outfit!

  6. I have definitely suffered blogger burnout. Great post. And cute outfit and hair.

  7. Loving this! Definitely need to write out My Truths! About to have to reorganize my life! Thanks for this girly!


  8. I am so glad you shared this with us! I have recently felt this way about life in general. It seems that every time I began to create something beautiful, I stopped. I didn't. I couldn't. It put me in a little rut, so I found myself reading and journaling to get back to a place where the creative juices would flow again. But this self truths activity you shared is just what the doctor ordered! I am gonna begin my morning writing my truths, as you suggested, in hopes that it will help me get back to ME.

    Thank you so much for always being an inspiration! This post was just on time and you look really pretty, btw ;-)

  9. Great post babe!
    P.S. I love your high bun, cute!

  10. Great posting! I had this funk too, and it was bad since I've only started my blog recently. I felt very discouraged and thought it was an early burnout or lack of creativity, but then I realized that I don't have to have perfect blogs. I'm blogging about me and mine, which are definitely far from perfection but still beautiful :)
    It's the little imperfections that make us perfect.

  11. I love everything about this post from the pics to the comments and your outfit. I love the activity. It speaks to me on so many levels and it is definitely easy to get burned out. Thank you for sharing your truths and for being so relatable in each and every post! I love Keep Sitting Pretty!
