Say Something

Say Something… when you don’t know what to say!

I’m sure you’ve noticed my absence on the blog over the last few months. It’s not that I didn’t want to blog during that time.

I did.

I simply struggled with being consistent.

I simply struggled with articulating what I wanted to say. Granted, there are lots of people out there who have said what I’m interested in sharing on this platform. They simply aren’t me, and probably won’t say it in the same way that I wish to.

Nonetheless, I struggled with putting pen to paper.

Whenever I sat in front of my laptop to write something, my mind froze completely. I knew exactly what I wanted to write about but filling up the blank page with words got harder as time went by.

Maybe I’m suffering from analysis paralysis where I overanalyse every thought and action until it turns to nothing. Critiquing my own work can sometimes turn out to be my worst enemy as it hinders me from taking the next step in my creative path.

It became a new form of procrastination.

I often wonder what life would look like if I could see what’s on the other side of self-doubt and fear when I’m going through a phase like this. I wonder what it would look like if I could see both sides of the coin in full motion picture before reacting. Would it help with analysis paralysis? Or would it be another tool for procrastination?

If you’ve got any thoughts on this, feel free to share in the comments section below.

Marion challenged me to write this post so here we are. And while you’re at it, go check out her page.

Now that we’ve cleared the air on my absence, sit back and enjoy the show!

      Hi Jon,

      Thank you!

      It does feel good to be back writing. I think the fear of not knowing what to say is certainly very crippling.

      Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a good day.

      Cheers,
      Stephanie
