Stuck in a Rut

That’s exactly how I have felt. Stuck. I seem to have spent weeks obsessing over Jason’s birthday and my crowdfunding, wanting to make his legacy known and now we are in April and his birthday has been and gone I guess i’ve not quite found my stride again.

I am existing in the sense that daily life is fine, I don’t feel like my mental health is an issue currently and i’m generally quite happy. I go to work, I get jobs done around the house, I socialise (within reason :P) and I am being the best parent to Ellie that I can be. There isn’t anything that I can pinpoint that could be causing me to feel stuck.

I guess for me Social Media is the big issue, I love Instagram and Twitter and I love being able to write my thoughts down in my blog but I guess I’ve just lost my mojo a bit. I am unsure about what to post. I am posting less and less and that bothers me because I enjoy sharing my little day-to-day goings on with those who are bothered to follow me. However unless we have been somewhere or done something out of the ordinary I haven’t felt like posting it.

I’m hoping that with us all now being off for Easter and having two weeks without the added pressure of work I may find it again but for now I’m just not feeling it.

Anyone else feel like sometimes it’s hard to get their groove back after a bit of a break?

Or does anyone have any ideas on what they’d like more of over here? More parenting, baby loss, support, geek stuff?


Wife & Mum of 2; Jason born and died 29/03/15 and Ellie born 01/11/16. Hoping to break the silence around baby loss and the journey of parenting a rainbow baby one blog post at a time.

  1. You could always take pics of things that look interesting and tell us about them.
    Or maybe u could visit some place and talk to people about their stories. Like the dog pound! I bet they may have some interesting tales. Do u like animals?
    Volunteering. Music. Reading. Writing my bike. Being outside. They all help me.
    Maybe if u just step away and do something else the rut will be better!


  2. Don’t feel disheartened by not posting blog posts! Look for ways to feel inspired to write a post, don’t feel forced, let it come naturally! I’m so glad to hear that you’re mental health is stable! Wishing you all the best!


  3. I know exactly what you mean. I personally find that it comes in cycles … I’d say the last thing you should do is put additional pressure on yourself . You are a very creative writer and content creator . Believe in yourself and let the energy flow!
