Motivation: an update.

Hello guys, how have you all been? Welcome back to my blog! I know I’ve been distant from this blog, but trust me, I didn’t mean to. I’ve just had so much going on with me. I missed you guys so much.

I wouldn’t have written this blog post if not for a challenge going on. I was thinking I wouldn’t write here for a very long time, but here I am guys. This challenge is going to last 15 days straight and I’m going to be posting here everyday. So guys, I need you on this!!

For today’s blog post I thought I would do a kind of ‘update’ post. For the past couple of months, I haven’t really been posting on my blog as regularly as I would have liked to, despite my best intentions at the beginning of the year to blog consistently. I haven’t been myself lately, with several thoughts running through my mind.

Let’s face it, motivation is a drive for one’s better self, it is ingrained in us. It sometimes deals with inner self motivation and some people get motivation doing difficult tasks, not because they enjoy doing it, but there’s going to be a reward on completion of that task. Many of us only put in real work or effort when we feel motivated enough to do so because it’s easier to focus and get things done, some days we wake up and barely want to roll out of bed while others days we get up and feel like someone injected us with a cup of coffee with an espresso shot on the side. Motivation is nothing more than our willingness to attempt/try a thing, it’s like that dish at a fancy restaurant that you really want to try but you THINK it might not taste good so you pass up on it and miss out on what might have been the best meal you have ever eaten.

Every day is different, everyday feels different, it’s important to have the mindset, the tools and know how, in order to deal with and get through the things that life throws at us.

In this blog post, I want to discuss my relationship with my blogging alongside some self-reflection outside of the blogging world.

I absolutely love blogging and it’s honestly one of my favourite things to do. There are many ways that blogging allows me to be creative and also write down what I feel. Even though I haven’t been posting as consistently on my blog, my love for blogging is still there, but there’s just one thing missing.

In all honesty, I’ve been lacking in motivation, as you can probably gather from the title of my blog post, because I have school work up in my sleeves. Motivation is definitely a big thing when it comes to writing and keeping your blog up to date, but it’s something I’ve been struggling with. I think that schooling whilst blogging on the side makes it more challenging. It’s difficult to find the motivation to write a blog post because of the mental stress I go through in school.

Another reason why I feel like I haven’t posted consistently on my blog is that I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself, dealing with insecurities, and social anxiety, but realistically this isn’t going to work on a regular basis. I drafted different contents in my head, but I don’t want to make the quality of my blog posts suffer just to pump out more content. I’m sure you guys would agree with me on that one.

Moving forward with my blog, I’m not promising to keep posting on a monthly basis, but I’ll try my possible best to do that. You know life can be hectic and things can get in the way, but I want to make a pact with myself to post on my blog at least monthly as I said when I started this blog. It may not be 3 times a month, but I sure will post one or two times.

This post was a bit of a ramble in a way, but I still wanted to post it nonetheless. I feel like that’s how my mind is at the moment, but I want to make an effort to take control of the things around me in my life. One of those things is blogging! So, let’s do this.

WHAT HAVE YOU GUYS BEEN UP TO?

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT MOTIVATION?

DO YOU BELIEVE MOTIVATION LIFTS ONE’S SPIRIT?

    Motivation isn’t very easy most times but thinking of the long term goal is definitely a drive to do more.

    One thing that i do … is pre motivate myself, so if i have a project i have to start next week … I hype myself towards it mentally, that way i’ve built up enough mental energy to see it through.

    When you write you pass in lessons and motivation. The more you keep doing that the more you keep reaching out. Try as much as possible to write more not for yourself but for those reading your blogs.

    To me motivation is Rilly hard sometimes to get.. But then what I always do if I dnt get any is to look at the task at hand and know my motive for performing the task in question.. When its something rilly important, I jus tell my self the effects of this task when its done, and the consequences of not performing the task at a given time, this does the trick for me most times and somehow the zeal to perform the task comes in. And boom I find my self accomplishing the task.

    and yes there are distractions but I still try to remind my self of my motive for it.. I guess u may have tried this but if u haven’t, there’s no harm in trying, it works for me.
    And lastly Great piece of article tho😊
    Am looking forward to reading more of this if u don’t mind
    And sorry for the epistle😊

    Mo! Hiya. This post is amazing. I’ve been sort of, kinda, ish, maybe going through the same thing as you. The motivation bit. Every one said i should start a blog buh NOBODY mentioned all the bumps that come with it! Whoosh. I won’t say its been a night mare but its come very close. But, like you, i love blogging, so whatever baggage it brings with it, I’m gonna stick to what i love. I urge you too to find courage in what you do cuz you’re a pretty great writer, you’ve got potential and from what i see, you’re a pretty great person too. Never forget that.
    xx Sarah
