What if everyone always said No? This used to be me for so long. Some people might be surprised but not too long ago I would always say No. I said No to countless opportunities or simple outings with friends. It wasn’t until I was frustrated with work that I realized that the people that said Yes all the time were the ones that got ahead. It took some time but I was able to correct my mindset and I began to say Yes.
I was so honored and humbled when I checked my comments this morning. I have been nominated for a Blogger Recognition Award from a fellow mommy blogger! Thank you so much Taylor from Simple Living Nursing Mama for nominating me! She has an awesome blog that I have been glued to all day! Taylor is a wife, mother, nurse and new blogger! Her Simple Living and Motherhood post is one of my favorites, because it ends in the most poignant way – Choose Joy! It just instantly made me happy and overcome with emotion, because us busy mom’s sometimes forget how to just be happy and slow down.

What is Bloggers Block you ask, well I equate it to being the exact same thing as Writers Block. I am in the complete midst of it. I haven’t yet run out of Blogging ideas. In fact I have a list about 30-40 ideas long. However, there is nothing sparking my interest at the moment. My mommy mind is full. My mind is full of decisions and worries and possibilities.
I used to write a lot in school for assignments and for fun. I learned during that time that the Best Ever Solution for Writers Block or in this case Bloggers Block is to…….Write. I always hated that advice to be honest with you. I felt as though if I couldn’t think of an idea that sparked my interest how the heck could I possibly write. It’s easy. If you begin to write your stream of consciousness will take over and you will begin to create words on a paper.
