Bonjour de Paris

Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need to get the blogging vibe flowing again. So it’s a Bonjour de Paris and how it helped me overcome my writer block.

Since the start of the year, I have been getting myself into a right old pickle. And with this pickle, I somehow keep managing to go around in circles and not really knowing where to land.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this year, that I’m switching tactic on here where I want to make it a photography experiences real-life blog, rather than just a place for my rambling.

But off course then the new year anxiety kicked in, and my brain went into scatty brain mode. And with that, my mind decided to shut down, and I soon got a writer block.

And that how I thought it would be for me, where I would be drowning in anxiety, my brain would be scatty and I would eventually just shut down giving me writer block.

So as you can imagine behind the scene, I was getting myself into a pickle, and I didn’t know what to do with myself.

I didn’t have any photography experiences. So there wasn’t anything for me to blog about and this made me feel sad.

I had planned and was trying to plot on how I’m going to get more real-life photography experiences, but as always it was just plans, and nothing was set in stone.

But then unexpectedly, as someone heard my prayers, I found myself going to Paris. Richard had some work over there (for those who doesn’t know, he’s a professional photographer) and I kind-of tag along for the ride.

So yes, I spent a good 24 hours in Paris last week (it wasn’t long as it was billed as a business trip for him) and all I needed to get myself out of this writer block pickle, was a change of scenery.

And I must say it did work like a charm. I found myself coming up with all kind of blog topics I wanted to write about and photos that I wanted to take. I will write more about Paris next week.

But seriously, going away made me feel a whole lot better and helped my anxiety and my crazy scatty brain complex.

I think it also does help that we are now in February and hopefully I’m over this whole new year anxiety, and I can finally settle into the year.

Who knows how 2019 going to be, I need to stop worrying about the next 11 months and go with the flow. Paris was an unexpected trip, so I might very well get a few more unexpected surprises in the coming month. All I can do is breathe and to stop myself from worrying.

As the saying goes, always expect the unexpected.

Let me finish by saying Bonjour de Paris, and I still have a lot of photos that still need to be edited.
