Last week was the first time in forever that I sat down and wrote a “Sunday Sitdown” post, my time to reflect and ponder on things that have been happening in my life. I used to love writing this posts, using it as an opportunity to clear my head for the week ahead or praise myself for any achievements made. I stopped writing them mid summer because I fell out my previous routine and really struggled to get back in to one, but last week I really enjoyed sitting down and writing one again.
Now admittedly I’ve told a slight lie here, as I’m writing this post on a Thursday because by Sunday I will be in Manchester at this years annual conference, something I am extremely excited about. Conference is such an amazing experience and this year I am thrilled to be going as a delegate, representing my constituency and standing up for the people and place I love. For me, conference is everything I love about the Labour Party rolled in to one amazing almost week- the people, the passion and the feeling that your part of something incredibly important- I always leave with a renewed sense of pride, ambition and motivation. It seems to have fallen at the perfect time because over the last two/three weeks, and if I’m completely honest probably even longer than that, these are the three things that I have been seriously lacking.
You might remember that a few weeks ago I wrote this blog about juice plus and the way that it was making me feel. I’d lost weight, my skin felt fantastic and for the first time in a very very long time, so did I. Yet over the last week, week and half, I’ve left this slip entirely and of course I’ve come down on myself pretty hard. I’ve worked so hard to get in to a routine and to lose some weight and now I feel like I’m ruining it all.
Yet it’s not just in this area of my life that I have really let things slip because for the past few weeks I’ve really struggled to get my blogging mojo back. I literally have to force myself to get these posts written.
I’m too hard on myself sometimes but I hate the thought that I’m undoing all the good work I’ve already done.
I usually write posts that express my opinion or offer some sort of advise but now this is your chance, because I really need to hear how you lot feel and if you have ever felt the same.
Have you ever felt this way? What advise would you offer me?
