What's Your Excuse?

I feel awful that I haven't posted much lately.  I feel like I have a sense of obligation to post more but to be completely honest, the last few weeks have been uber rough.  Between life, the demands of my shop and my mom being in the hospital for Kidney failure, I've been uber distracted.  If it didn't involve my paying job, my shop or my mom, it just hasn't been a priority.  Sponsor obligations have even been lower on the scale than normal.

I really wish I could do the "This week in Recap" in pictures. But all you'd see is pictures of my shop items strewn across my living room floor, a box of used tissues on my table and my computer on my lap.  

I am trying though and I plan to get back to it. I love the blogging world and I love being involved, I just haven't had it in me.  I know you understand because we have all been in that place before. Life happens and we just don't have what it takes to keep up with everything.

I'd love to say that its just my blogging that has suffered but many personal areas of my life has been suffering, including my faith and my walk with Jesus.  I just haven't been motivated or excited to do much of anything lately.  Its nothing that is new to any believer, i promise but it still feels pretty crappy when you are in the middle of it.  I'd love to hear what you do when you feel life has run you over. If you are a believer, what are some things that you do to reconnect with the Lord. If you aren't, what are some things you do to feel encouraged or motivated?  I'd love to hear from you! Seriously.  I need some accountability and some encouragement so I'd love to hear what you do when you feel down!  Also, what do you do regarding your blog or your work?  Do you have some advise on keeping up with things that take more energy than you have?  

I know that this is just a phase or a blip in the journey. I know that soon things will be better. I have no doubt that I will come through all of this stronger and more connected but for now I could use the extra help!

  1. I can completely relate to you. I am a believer and detest those moments where I don't feel connected to Jesus. It can be so depressing and hard to be motivated. I think when this happens we just have to keep pushing through it. He is there with us, even when it doesn't feel that way.

    A few things that seem to help me when I am in my Jesus funk are:
    1. Go out of my way to do something for - make a meal, write a note, buy someone's coffee, etc.
    2. Listen to my praise music extra loud. For me, when I am in a funk, it's hard to want to listen to music so I have to force myself.
    3. Find a new Bible study to do. A new start always seems to refresh me. I just started "Breaking Free" by Beth Moore. It's a lot to do, but really good.
    4. Cry, cry, and cry some more. Seriously, this helps because I am just being honest.
    5. Remind myself that this is a moment in time compared to my entire life.

    These moments stink, but once we are on the other side and we have stuck with Jesus, we feel so free.

    When all else fails, treat yourself to your favorite coffee from Starbucks. :)

  2. I'm so sorry, Kim! I hope you get well soon and that the chaos dies down a little for you. :( HUGS!

  3. so sorry things are rough sending hugs

  4. It sounds like there is a lot in your life to work through right now! I'm sorry that there is so much standing in the way of the things you love to do, I hope things get better soon!

  5. Praying for you! I hope things improve soon. I feel like that sometimes. My blogging has been down lately - just don't know what to write. I don't feel inspired and that's dragging me down. I think I'm just so exhausted right now that I don't have it in me. Praying for you friend! I haven't been reading blogs much the past couple weeks, so missed this when you posted it, but I have noticed you didn't seem to be tweeting much (unless I've just missed that too) and I have been thinking about you! Hugs.
