Half Way Over // Refresh everything.

Dear readers,

It is July 16, exactly right in the middle of the the year. 2015 is already half way over.

January is a time to have resolutions. To create big plans, big hopes, and big dreams for the coming year.
July is a time to refresh. To redesign. To reevaluate everything for the last coming months. To revamp your ideas and revive your self for your goals.

I’m stuck in this rut this week. Let me break it down for you all.

I have completely immersed myself in educating myself further on this crazy adventure I call blogging. If it’s been through e-courses I mentioned earlier this week, or figuring my camera, or inspiring myself with amazing resources, I have just delved in as much as I could.

For me and my blog, I want a clean, cheerful space where I can take everything to the next level. I want to do DIYs, recipes, fun workouts, date ideas, fashion, make up, organization, designing, and photography. I want to better myself and spend time learning and growing as a person. I want to try all the things I have ever wanted to try, and do the things I’ve always wanted to do and be good at. And I want share that journey as well as successes and the obstacles I encounter, with you all!

I am right back where I began when I first started Ordinary Adventures. Unfortunately, I let my everyday journeys stay mediocre, boring, and uninspiring. But now, I have the tools, the wisdom, and the drive. I know how to make my life a little better, and little more exciting, and little more how I dream for it to be. The original spark and desire has been lit again, and this time I know how to stoke it and burn brighter than ever.

The problem is, I have spent so much time learning, and having my motivational gears turning this week, that I’ve let everything fall through the cracks in the mean time.

My house is a mess. My blog’s stats have been on a steady decline. I haven’t even shared photos with you all from my new camera! As you saw yesterday, I haven’t been exercising. I haven’t really achieved anything this week. I’ve been working, and reading, and planning, and… not doing.

But through this time off, I’ve been able to prepare for an onslaught of buckling down and flourishing and creating.

Today I was lucky enough to find out the all my clients are ending up going on vacation this coming week. Which means from Sunday to at least Friday, I have no work or job to go to.

Which also means I have this coming week to:
Clean thoroughly.
Play with, and share experiments I pursued with my camera.
Lots of new, fun posts.
Workout regularly.
Try out a craft or recipe or new idea.

And possibly much more. I have at least six days to check off my July goals, and explore the next steps for my life and blog.

It’s half way through the year and I’m ready to refresh everything.

  2. Love this post. I feel the same way. Since I haven’t been working I feel uninspired to do anything. I haven’t been able to take time for myself and have been feeling stressed. I lost my drive to workout. I’m trying to stay consistent with my blog, but often forget about it. Maybe I need to reevaluate my own goals and get myself back in track.

  3. Sounds like an interesting week! May I suggest also using some time this week to create a schedule for yourself for when you are back working so you can have time to do everything you want to in a day? Allotting a certain period of time each day for blogging, cleaning, etc.


  4. I feel the same way!! I haven’t worked out in 2 weeks, I haven’t done laundry in two weeks, my apartment’s a mess, and I’ve been eating terribly! But you’re so right!! Time for a refresh!! We’re gonna turn it around next week!! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  5. This just gave me a kick in the butt and a good reminder as to where my head should be. When we’re constantly wound up in something we forget about ourselves. Thanks for looking out ! Good luck and stay motivated!

  6. This is awesome! Gosh it really puts things in perspective that the year is almost over! I haven’t even achieved half my goals! Thanks for the inspiration to refresh!! 🙂


  7. We all need a boost now and again! I think that just by posting this, you have helped others realize that we all go through the same thing. It is easy to look at other blogs and think “wow, mine will never be like that” The fact is, everyone gets stuck sometimes. You’ve pulled yourself out and we look forward to your next posts with great anticipation!

  8. I just went through this also. Had to sit down and revamp and revise the rest of the year. I have been doing a lot of reading and studying but not a lot of doing. Thanks for sharing, it’s nice to see that I am not the only one. Best of luck to you
