I have a writing prompt, but first, I have a confession.
I have been slacking.
It has been a really rough and crazy couple of weeks and I ended up taking an unexpected blogging break. I have been having a hard time finding things to write about. Sadly, nothing seems to inspire me.
Maybe it is the craziness of the holidays, or the arrival of the cold weather, but I know that things need to change.
So I decided to hibernate a bit.
I did my best to turn off my brain and my running list of things that I “should” be doing.
If I started feeling overwhelmed, I used my favorite page in my bullet journal, the Brain Dump page. I made notes on things that I wanted to remember, but not deal with right at that moment.
I took a couple naps.
I brought out my knitting needles and made a hat. Knitting also helps quiet me and gets my brain thinking productively again.
I decorated our house for Christmas, made cookies with my friend, and snuggled up for Christmas movies with the kids.
After taking my little self care break, I am finally starting to feel a bit better. I have a few ideas brewing in my head again, which means I will be back with more crafts and bullet journal posts soon.
In the meantime, here is my Thursday Writing Prompt. Since I can’t take a real vacation at the moment, I will write about it instead!
