The smiles are back 😉

If you are a regular reader of my articles, you probably noticed that I haven‘t posted anything new in quite a while. The reason for that is that we moved from the West coast to the East coast. Additionally I have been struggling with a bit of writer‘s block and for the last couple of weeks this has really been keeping me from creating wonderful new content. I want to take this opportunity to talk a little bit about this obstacle and how I finally found the right words.


Writer‘s Block

There are a lot of things that can keep you from living your life to the fullest. I have always loved to write. I had new ideas for stories left and right. So I started publishing an Ebook (you can check out ‚Moments of Affection‘ by clicking on the picture in the sidebar) and created this blog. While that started out great life on the other side of the screen wasn‘t all smiles. I was fighting depression and heavy grey fog was starting to form in my brain, preventing me from doing what I love and being creative. It wasn’t possible for me to think and I definitely couldn‘t write more than a few sentences. I was stuck.


Lifting The Fog

It were a difficult few months and I certainly didn‘t feel myself but I‘m starting to get rid of the fog. Life is still not perfect (and probably will never be) but I am starting to be happier with my surroundings and responsibilities. I honestly can‘t tell you how to get over a writer‘s block. I have looked it up and tried different things but nothing helped. For me, it just needed time and some life changes 🙂 Then suddenly I felt the fog lifting from my brain and I was eager to get to work. I am not sure how long it will stay this way but I am looking forward to bringing you new and exciting things and sharing new articles with you.


What To Look Forward To

This isn‘t necessarily a long post, but since it is only information about what‘s going on in my life, I didn‘t want to take up too much of your time.

Here are a few things that I am working on/starting to work on over the next couple of weeks:

  • Weekly meal plan with recipes
  • New items for the Smiles & Paper Etsy store
  • Calendar with daily inspiration
  • And much more…
