5 nights a week I sit down at the computer to write a blog post – and I’ve done this for years and years. (Long past the popularity of blogging when everyone moved to different platforms). I’ve used this blog to document all the things pertaining to our family life and my personal thoughts. Throughout the years, there have been times when it’s so easy to do this and takes very little effort – it just flows. And then there are times when it’s a chore and I have to make myself sit down and write something…anything.

Honestly speaking – I’m in a period where it’s a struggle. Not because I don’t want to write and share but because there is just so much going on, it’s hard to narrow a topic and write. I was just going through pictures and there are so many things I want to get down on paper before I forget, but the truth is when I sit down to write my mind is blank. Perhaps blank isn’t the right word because my mind is definitely not blank – there’s just no words. Nothing comes to mind to write even though the thoughts and ideas are constantly swirling.

My solution to this dilemma is to not write. Skip a day. Skip two. Skip another. Which is great! The problem is life keeps marching on and thoughts and ideas keep piling up! I just need to figure out how to convert those ideas to words again. I’m sure it will come back to me – it always has. Just not today.
