A Ramble

I’ve been meal planning this week! It took me all week to get paast being overwhelmed and to just write out the darn thing. I’ve done my best to keep in mind my current habits and foods that I already know work well for me, so I’m hopeful that it works out well. I’m naturally very good at planning, but the follow-through is often not great. I don’t think I’m making excuses when I cite my low energy.. but if I’m being honest sometime it’s because I get overwhelmed by my own plans. I’m gonna do my best not to fall into that trap next week. I’m going to try some meal prep tips and have a big food prep day so i can just grab stuff when I’m ready without having to think about the preparation of it. I think that will help.

I’m not ready to share my plan or any meal planning tips with y’all but I am kinda proud of getting it done even though i was overwhelmed at first. Maybe after I’ve been doing in consistently for a couple months, I can share what I’ve learned. In the meantime, I’ll just vagueblog.

Speaking of vagueblogging, I feel like I’m in a rut in regards to this blog. It’s not like I’m too busy. It’s that I’m uninspired. Most nnights I feel like I don’t have anything to say. Having these daily categories helps, but I still feel uninspired. I know from experience that it’ll most likely come back around if I push through the feeling. I guess I just wonder what the point is! I’m not deluded into thinking that I’m putting anything important out into the world. I’m not a skilled writer and I’m not providing valuable content.. I’m just writing in a public diary haha. Those of you who care to read my thoughts are very kind, but I don’t pretend it’s anything more than what it is.

I say I wonder what the point in continuing on is.. the point is that I want to be able to say I stuck with the year-long project! I’m already 10/12 of the way through… might as well stick with it! And again, I’m sure inspiration will swing back around.

WELLLLLLLLLL there’s another rambly, un-proofread public diary entry for y’all. Hope you enjoyed. Ha

  1. Keep pushing, you’re soooooo close!
    P.S. I noticed Kirby hasn’t posted anything in a while… does that mean she has to come visit you?

    • Yeah we’ve talked about it haha she owes me a visit but I’m not gonna be obnoxious about holding her to it 😉 Her blog was no longer something that she enjoyed so there’s no need to push through that kind of thing!

  2. I look forward to reading your blog posts each day, even if they’re short and vague;) For me, they’re encouraging. I don’t know exactly why. Maybe bc they’re so honest, or maybe bc your perspective is insightful just bc it’s different from mine. It’s the little things in life, right? I get being uninspired though, but that won’t last forever. Maybe switch out a new blog prompt every month or even take a break if ya feel you’re not doing much with it right now. It’ll be here when you’re ready. Plus, goals are nice but what you make of them is the real goal. I could force myself to draw everyday, and face burnout, or draw when inspiration hits. I choose the latter, cause to me it’s about quality over quantity. But then again, I truly do enjoy your posts;)

  3. I’ve never commented before, but I read your blog daily and always look forward to it! I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you, perhaps even especially because of the times when you blog “uninspired” (which is just a matter of perspective, you know!). I relate to your entries so much and I can’t tell you how many times I read what you’ve written and think “wow, I was totally just thinking about that… I’m not alone!” The Holy Spirit shines through you, even when you don’t see it or you feel completely ineffective. Keep fighting the good fight! And please keep blogging 🙂

  4. In regards to the blogging thing. . .I will say you get a good amount of comments. I get 0-2 comments on my blog posts, mainly 0 so it is mainly for myself really. When people tell me they read it I say, “Why didn’t you say something then?”

    Anyway, if you don’t have inspiration, you don’t have to push yourself to write a blog post! I always write randomly and sometimes I’ll go a full week without one entry and other times I’ll write three in a week.

    I am glad you have been doing your food planning! If you have low energy, it is okay that you can’t find time to blog about it. When the time does come, it would be neat to read about your meal planning though!
