How to keep from pulling your hair out…
I am exactly halfway through this 30 Day Blog Challenge. I am starting to feel the pressure build up. And I am not feeling like I am on the down side yet. Today when I was sitting in front of my computer that blank page was staring me in the face. I had no clue what words were going to fill it up. And I felt like I was going to start pulling my hair out in frustration.
I had set up a plan before this challenge started and had laid it out with categories of topics I intended to write about. I had set each one on certain days of the week and so far so good. But today things seem to have fallen apart. I am not where I need to be to write today and feel out of sorts. So here I sit staring at this blank page.
I am putting words down and the cursor is going across the page so this is a very good sign and gives me hope. I think when you just start moving no matter how little that movement is, at least it is a forward motion. Just putting one foot in front of the other gets you moving and that may be all it takes.
In the midst of pulling your hair out sometimes you need to just stop, open your eyes and look around for that small movement forward. Just stop and check to see which way the wind is blowing or where there is movement. That pause sometimes is all it takes to take a deep breath and release your hair. Take a deep breathe in and a deep exhale out.
When you feel your self in a corner what do you do to stem the tide of that frustration? How do you stop from pulling your hair out?
