Writers Block is a Rhymes-With-Witch


I am having the worst case of writers block ever! Okay, not ever. But honestly, I'm stumped. I don't know what to write about - that's why I have not been posting. I think it's a mix of writers block and if I'm being honest, laziness or lack of discipline. The plan was to use my weekends to plan out content for the blog - usually about 2 weeks in advance. At the start of the year, I actually had my blog content planned out for the first two months! And now, here I am. Blabbing. Looking at a whole page of nothing. Since I have nothing to write right now, I'm going to post some self portraits I shot.

I don't know about you, but I love black and white photos. They seem to add an extra oomph, and have an air of mystery. Honestly sha, I am not crazy about the photos. The lighting was kinda off. I don't care too much for the editing. And if you look closely, my eyes are a little red from crying a lot that day. After the news I received early that morning, to be able to still get dressed up, put some makeup on, and take photographs, was a little miracle. 

I've never been one to shy away from crying when I'm overwhelmed, tired, angry, upset, etc. And I don't mind talking about it. Unfortunately, crying is seen as a form of weakness - I don't know why. Just because someone is willing to be vulnerable and show it completely, does not take away from their strength. I cry, yes. But I also wipe those tears away and carry on with life. I am a tough cookie, if I say so myself. I remember when a family member told me that God doesn't answer crying or tearful prayers - THE SHOCK!!! I asked her to go back and read Psalms - King David cried and wailed a whole bunch, didn't he? But he always got up, dusted himself off and kept it moving.

Okay, I'm getting off my soapbox now. I hope you like the photos, even though they could have come out way better.



  1. Well even with writer's block, you did a good job with this post! Hehe! I love black and white photos! Anytime I'm not crazy about a photo, I turn it black and white, then voila!
    Now about crying, I'm a bit of a cry baby too but I agree that it doesn't subtract from one's strength at all!
    Berry I hope soon find peace/ a solution to whichever news you received.
    Take care.

    1. Black and White for president!

      I'm coming to terms with the news. It's sad but things happen. We'll be fine.


I'd love to hear from you about this post! Let's all learn and share our worlds.
