Okay, what’s just happened? I had the most amazing and productive Easter break which was really needed because I had been waking up at 5:30am every morning to exercise then get ready for work for 8:30am then returning home or to the office to work on the ‘passion’. With only 4 hours sleep each day, I was on the verge of a burnout.

I know for a fact I am not the only person who is going through this. The need to be better than who I was yesterday, the urgency to smash the hell out of my goals and be the ultimate powerwoman and who be about exactly what I preach about.

But here’s the thing. I’m human and on days when I recognise this and take a step back. I realise that I can get tired, demotivated, overwhelmed by my do list and disappointed by how little things I have ticked off my list.

I have been sitting, pondering, overthinking and clock watching for the longest time. Coaxing myself to get up and tackle at least of my days objectives ‘Come on Sasha, imagine how good you will feel once you get up and attempt to do just one of the things you set out to do today; imagine how happy you’ll feel.

Well I know i’d feel absolutely bloody amazing. But here I am, two hours later sitting in my PJ’s, scrolling through my timeline, seeing people be active and pursuing their goals with a major smile on their face. Well damn it, that ain’t me today and my day has only officially started now.

As much as I’d love to win every single day and have that go for it mindset, there will be days when I may just get a little lost and disillusioned. I may look at my bed and wish I could fold it up and carry it with me and I’ll wish that I could be one of those lucky souls to win the jackpot, without having to get dressed and go and buy a ticket.

Basically, what I’m getting at is that like me, there will be days that you will get up and think f**k it, I can’t be arsed, why am I doing all of this and does it even matter.

What you need to remind yourself of however is that these days are just that; days. And these dull moments can be just that, dull moments. Just keep in mind that tomorrow is not today and God willing there is and will be an opportunity to slay the hell out of your day tomorrow.

So Monday, like the weather, you’ve been quite a washout. But it’s okay. Dust yourself off, have a snack, force yourself into the shower and make the most of the time you have left. Today may feel like a complete and utter epic fail but you’ve got this. x

I’m Struggling With Blogger Fatigue…Can You Relate?

I love blogging and have loved it for a very long time but the last few weeks have been tough. Instagram is a battle. You spend so much time putting out quality content and it’s so hard to get people to engage with you. Don’t get me wrong, I have some amazing supporters who always engage with my content and believe me; I appreciate that. But, out of nearly 5k followers, you do struggle with the idea that only 100+ ever like it.
