Hey Lovelies,

How are you?

I wanted to pop up a tiny little diary entry tonight just to say a few things to you all. I’m currently in the process of trying to beat a huge procrastination problem. I seem to have all of these great ideas and plans in my head but can never seem to fabricate them into anything more than just thoughts.

Do any of you ever have this? What do you do to combat it?

I’ve been listening to a book by Mel Robbins called ‘The Five Second Rule’ which in the simplest of explanations means that when you have an idea you count down from five to one and then move to act upon that idea. Which seems like an amazing premise, I just can’t even seem to get the motivation together to do that. I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately, I’ve just been in this slump.

I’m upset that my blog and Instagram aren’t making any money (through affiliate links and adverts), and by worrying about that I know I’m pushing it further and further away from me. I mean, how do you trust that the universe has your back when it’s not delivering the things you want.

I’ve also been listening to an audiobook called ‘Get Rich, Lucky Bitch’ which talks about how to overcome your money troubles and move your mindset into a money making magnet. Again, this seems like a great premise but I just never sit down and listen to it. It’s like I have this problem with actually changing my life. Why, oh why can’t I be a doer.

It’s really getting to the point where I’m starting to feel sad, dissatisfied and distant from my blog and Instagram account.

The thing is, I LOVE writing, I love creating content that people enjoy, I really do. I just can’t seem to shift myself into that mindset and change anything about myself.

☹️

I want to do more, I want to be more. I’m just not sure how to overcome this issue and get into the mind frame of ‘Get Shit Done’

I’m sorry this isn’t a very positive post, Loves. I think sometimes I just need to let a few things out.

      It sucks doesn’t it. I’ve actually started writing all of my thoughts down and getting things out of my head. That has been helping a lot. Also, you can have a look into a book called The Five Second rule by Mel Robbins, its a game changer. If you’re strapped for cash there is a free audio version on YouTube, although I highly recommend buying from the author directly.

      Hope you can start to take action soon! I’m here if you ever need to talk x

        Tysm !! I love the idea of writing everything down so i’ve decided to buy a notebook to do just that. I looked into the book and think the overall point is really cool so when I get the chance ( & money i’ll definitely buy it ) life’s kinda hard when you’re a broke 19 year old kid living with her parents lol . i feel like my main issue is my social anxiety and on – again , off – again depression so finding tips like this definitely help , thank you very much 🙂

          You are so very welcome lovely. Remember that anxiety is just a feeling, it can be changed as can everything else in your life. I’m sure you will be able to sort yourself out when you’re good and ready!

          Just a thought, I know audible offer a 30 day free trial, you could download that and listen to the book! Then cancel the subscription ☺️❤️ Or, ask for it as a Christmas gift haha, that’s what I do!
