Starting and Stopping

Hi everyone,

It’s me. I have been sitting here for the last two hours trying to write a blog post. I almost finished one and then decided that I don’t like it well enough to hit publish yet. Then, I started another about the dark circles under my eyes and how I’ve tried every eye cream under the sun. I even made a list – hydrating, anti-aging, concealing, and total eye care. Nothing has worked, and I still look like I walked into a door. I also stopped writing and Googled one article about how I should drink more caffeine and take vitamins C and K.

Fascinating, right? This is how my writing is going at the moment. I’m blocked, but after writing more than 20 posts already this month, maybe I need a break.

And now, I’m tired, and The Big Bang Theory is on. And, there is a glass of Riesling beside me with my name on it.

Hopefully, I’ll have more to write about tomorrow. And if you have any ideas about getting rid of dark circles, I’d love to hear them.

Sleep tight everyone,

Elisa

    That’s a crazy thing with the blogging world. A few years ago, I decided to try and do one post a day for an entire year. I knew it could backfire as I had done the same with photos a year or two before that. Sure enough it backfired and it burned me out for several years. I’m slowly getting myself back into it more than a monthly challenge I run … the burnout is real. Sometimes it’s good just to walk away for a while.

    Aww, there are some days that are meant to take a break and enjoy that glass of wine.
    Sound a good night’s sleep should also be on your to-do list
    See you tomorrow!

    Elisa, writers’ block is frustrating, isn’t it? From my holistic healing practice: dark circles say “energize the kidney meridian”. If you take breaks and place your palms on your face for at least 5 minutes at a time, that should help also. A quickie for writers’ block: stand and run in place, slowly, for 2 minutes. You’ll be amazed.

    I would love to read 10 random things about you! Love The Big Bang, the reruns still make me laugh.
