It’s like writers block only it’s all things blogging, blocked. After a while of writing it seems like my life turns out to be even more boring than it already was and I just run out of having anything worthwhile to say (or at least that’s what I tell myself). Once I’m in that slump, if I’m not careful the slump turns into a complete departure. Sometimes the departure feels good, but most of the time I miss it (you).
Part of the block comes from my lack of feeling like I can be authentic. The title of my blog is Honestly Carrie. If I can’t be honest and true to who I am then what’s the point of all of this? I hate tiptoeing or taking extra time picking my words apart for fear of offending someone. We live in such a judgmental world but I think with time my skin will thicken…maybe? 🤞
Some days I want to just start all over with this thing and say here’s me. I’m sarcastic and shy with a weird sick humor, my weight fluctuates more times a month than you sneeze during allergy season, and I am the most easily distracted person on this planet, hands down. My new start would sound something like this:
Hi I’m Carrie. I’m going to offend you, I’m probably going to have an extra chin every other month, and I’m going to be all over the place because I don’t always take my ADHD medicine 🤷♀️
That was easy 😊
Truth is, I want to be here and I have to learn how to avoid my “blocks”.
I’m just going to be me . I hope you like it and I hope you will continue on this ride with me.
