So, we are not far from the end of #BlogtoberWithBOA, the stress free blogging challenge throughout October made by little old me. I made the challenge as a way to help content creators feel inspired to create based on the Autumn and Halloween themed prompts.
My one rule was that is was stress free and I stand by that, hence why I am writing this post.
For days 23 and 24 I decided since my home life currently has prevented me from pre-writing and scheduling to actually just do some social media posts about the prompts instead of writing full blog posts as my head was a little wobbly after a busy week of training, virtual court, school runs and a poorly beastie.
I aim to show reality through my posts and so I take no worry in saying that I too am not doing some prompts as I want to feel happy and less stressed this month! I think it’s fair to say we all feel overwhelmed sometimes or even just have a few days feeling lack of inspiration. It is good to give ourselves time and listen to our bodies and minds during these times. We deserve to feel refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed during times of struggle so we should allow ourselves to take a step back and do what feeds our soul. We can then come back and feel motivated again!
The past few days I have done lots of training with the Diana Award for the Mentoring programme, had virtual court, done homework with the kiddies ready for the half term holiday, planned to go to the pumpkin patch and had a lovely chai latte in the rain at my local Cafe Nero. The fresh air from being out and about has really helped me with my wobbly mind. Some days off without the stress to do posts each day really helps! Let’s face it, a post every day for a month is insane and we should be proud of what we can do to a good quality with passion rather than one each day for the sake of it!
Here are the slightly messy Halloween, Autumn nails I did! I’m no pro but enjoy trying new things which is what it’s all about right? Blogtober With BOA day 23 was Autumn nails so I did a little design and shared it on socials!
If you’d like to see some posts I have done, you can find them here! I have decided to share some on this post to make up for my absence the last few days.
Thank you for reading! If you’re taking part in the challenge, remember that it is about fun, not stress or obligation.
