I hit my annual slump. Now what?

Written by Ashley Lopez

I’m sure it’s more than obvious that my motivation has (had) gone a bit down, but it’s safe to say that I go through waves of feeling 100000% driven and then feeling 1% moved to do or accomplish anything. Don’t you hate that?

But guess what? Your girl is slowly, but surely making her way back towards and up to that 100000% feeling. Often times I find myself wondering why my mood fluctuates so much; I’ve come to the conclusion that that’s just the way I am and I have to learn to accept and love myself for it. It’s okay to not always have it together.

I lack to feel ambitious, enthused, stimulated, etc. at times—but that doesn’t mean that I’m not all of those things because I am. I am capable of creating, learning, exercising, and more. It’s up to me to defeat my own demons and negativity.

And it’s time I have more patience and understanding towards my own self because I’m doing what I can and although it’s not always the best, I know I am able to be the best version of myself because there is no one else that can do it better. And like me, you too are the captain of your own life and have the ability to sail whichever way you wish, and that includes taking a slower drift if necessary.

I’m beginning to understand that everyone fights their own battles and though one might not understand the other’s fight, it’s time we learn empathy towards others.

With all that said, it’s almost the end of the month and we have almost made it halfway through 2021—officially! Where did time go? Okay, so I hit my slump of the year and hope to stay on track from here on out and to meet higher standards for myself.

I finally feel as if the plan I’ve been working on is starting to feel in reach. It’s nice to feel like I’m actually working towards something. What are you working towards?

This week I challenge you to make a goal and write the steps you need to take to meet that goal. Knock ’em off that list.

It’s time to feel inspired again because we are all anything but ordinary, rather, exceptional.

Thanks for reading, xo.
