Small Steps to Big Ones

September 11, 2017

I adore taking outfit photos. I like dressing up, meeting up with fellow blogger Shabana @ The Silver Kick Diaries, and posing in the middle of the street to take pictures. I like to show you all what I wore and how I styled it, it's nice. I feel accomplished when I do. But, honestly, it's been a struggle coming up with content these past few months—most of the year actually.
I have a whole list of post ideas on Google Docs, but when I pick one that feels right and tries to write it up, nothing comes out. It's like watching a blank screen, and then suddenly a flash of images scroll through quickly that you can barely make sense of. That's my mind trying to write recently.

I've literally changed the direction of this post about 3 times in the last 30 minutes. Just when I thought writing blog posts were one of the easiest forms of writing, it actually isn't at this moment. There are times when I would get a spark, and the words would flow like a river, and there are times when it doesn't. So, that's why my posts haven't been as frequent as I want it to be.

It Could be Writer's Block

After doing a bit of research on writer's block and how to release this blockage, I realized that it was a long time coming for me. I've been going through multiple slumps that stop me from creating and doing absolutely anything. So, I have taken a step back and meditated on the things that could be blocking my path to writing. 

I found that there are multiple things that just about sums up the reason behind my long term writer's block, from career choices to unprogressive goals. Perhaps writing this post helps release some of that blockage and cobwebs. It's better than not writing at all, yeah?

Small steps to Big ones

Whenever I go through these slumps, I like to take a step back and take slow and small steps. 

But, how many small steps am I supposed to keep taking if I'm going to end up going back into this slump?

I like to think of it as the dust buddies under my bed. The longer I pretend it isn't there, the bigger it grows. Just like with this. I realized that it's going to be a chronic thing unless that whole blockage has been cleared from all that gunk. It could be that these small steps I've been taking aren't cutting out, and it's the big leaps that I'm truly meant to take to clear that blockage. 

What about the blog?

If you're wondering if this means that the blog would stop running, well, there isn't a guarantee that it'll run like it used to a year back, but every now and then when a gust of inspiration sparks up, a new outfit post—which I have a bunch of sitting in my folders—or a 5 paragraph thoughtful post will be featured here and there.

I do hope, if you're out there, any of you, that you'll be sending some good vibes my way and all around to help all those in any sort of slump get through this! Let's keep on spreading the love! xoxo
