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.
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.
