This post is for the last 3 weeks of July and I haven't posted for about a month. I have missed a few weeks worth of photos for my 52 week photography project.
Where do I even begin? I am so far behind. What started off as a couple of busy days, turned into busy weeks, turned into getting sick, then turned into becoming completely overwhelmed with everything and not keeping up with my routines which turned into zero motivation to take any photos for my project. Honestly I have been in a bit of a rut.
My brain has been in a fog for the last few weeks. I have had headaches, and my health has been up and down. Right now I am home sick with the flu. My food choices have been poor. My fitness routines have suffered. Every time I tried to take a photo, I would get frustrated and delete it, or just not upload it. It seemed like any shot I took I hated and would immediately trash it.
When I go through periods like this I will find ways to help myself. I take care of myself and I have a list of things I will turn to when I'm feeling overwhelmed or down. But sometimes even when I try to get myself out of the fog, something else happens (like getting sick) and I have to give up temporarily again. Recently I've just given myself a break and I've been surfing this as best as I can because I know it will not last forever. I believe these down periods are pretty normal for everyone really, and I know it's only a matter of time before my body is healthy again, I'm starting my routines back up and I have momentum in my daily life again.
There is absolutely no point in stressing, worrying or adding pressure to be at my peak when it's quite normal not to be sometimes. Everyone has crap days and weeks.
