Losing Steam

Hey everyone!

Ugh, is it Spring yet?

It’s been a while since I posted, so I felt compelled to write a quick update. I haven’t disappeared! I’ve just been hit hard with lack a motivation. I’ve been in a bit of a slump, mood wise, and finding it hard to push myself to do things, not just blog-wise. I don’t know if it’s the weather, or the way I’ve been eating, but I am trying to push past it. Life has it’s ups and downs, and now it’s time for me to push myself up, above and beyond!

I still plan on writing a post on Lent. This is an important time of year for me and I would like to share what it means to me with all of you. I will push myself to start posting B&W pictures daily again. I can’t wait for the weather out here to clear up so I can take my DSLR outside and capture some nice shots with some natural light. I also recently purchased a lens ball and a prism, so I’ve been dying to try both of them!

Thank you, readers, for sticking with me! Let’s welcome March in like a lion!

PS: Please comment any tips you have for writing posts even when you really don’t feel like it! TIA

Another Day, Another Bookstore – Half Price Books

Another bookstore haul!

This one isn’t as big – I only got three books (I honestly don’t know where I found the self-control). This was only my second trip to Half Price Books, but this time I got to spend more time looking around. I will definitely be going back, though! There were countless books I wanted to get (next time I need to remember to make a list!)

Starting from the right: I chose this book because what’s better than reading about how much authors love books?! I thought it was cute, and I’m thinking about sharing a quote a day from it.

The middle book I grabbed because I love C. S. Lewis and I love the book of Psalms. I’ve been wanting to read some of his non-fiction work, so I thought this book would be the perfect place to start.

The last book I grabbed because I have a weakness for clearance books. I saw the movie when it came out years ago and liked it, and you know what they say, the book is always better.

Once I get into one of these books, I’ll do another Currently Reading post. If you have any suggestions for books I should look for at my next bookstore trip, please comment and let me know!

February Update – Thank you!!!

I just wanted to post a quick little update!

First, and most importantly, thank you so, so much to my followers and everyone that has liked even just one of my posts. It always makes me feel good to see a notification after posting. I recently reached a small but exciting benchmark:

I officially have over 100 likes on my blog! It’s not much, but it’s benchmarks like these that really motivate me.

With Lent coming up soon, I hope to get some longer posts on here. In the Catholic Church, Lent is a very important time of year. It can jokingly be thought of as a second chance at those failed New Year’s resolutions, but in reality, it can be a time of great spiritual growth. Sometimes it takes a lot of work and guidance, but it can be an amazing time of year.

When I have a chance to sit at my computer, I will write in more depth about my experiences with Lent and what it means to me. This year, I plan to work on my gratitude, an often forgotten about virtue.

Again, thank you for being a part of this blogging journey with me! I hope my followers are enjoying the trip thus far. I look forward to hitting some more benchmarks this year!
