This is a bit of a journal-like and a reflective blog, based on my state of mind since the year started till now.

Life can be a lot sometimes. I’m learning to be okay with how it can flow in many different directions even when i’m not in control. Since the start of the year, life has been very testing a lot of moments that I did not expect nor plan. But I am still grateful nonetheless. To be honest I’ve not been inspired or motivated lately to do anything despite the amount of goals I have set for myself. It has been a few months of forcing an energy that is somewhat non-existent, the year so far has been a drag but inspite of that I am still hopeful things will turn around.

I’m sharing this to basically say that sometimes downtimes and hard times happen in life. You can’t have the good without the bad, the beautiful without the ugly, and the sun without the rain. I also have hope and belief in the fact that there are reasons behind why things flow as they do in life, even in times that we don’t understand. How to deal with these times? Personally I don’t have all the answers. I just feel you have to go with it and take things day by day and hold on to a little bit of faith. Get away from all the noise and all things that distract you so that you can focus on yourself. For me that was social media. Keeping up with posts on instagram and trying to drive traffic to my blog or put across messages, no longer fulfilled me. And mentally i’ve not been in the best frame of mind to write as much as i used to. I still don’t intend on stopping as writing is my passion but sometimes the time and energy for it is not always present or the urgency to put out something. Bottom line is, I will find my rhythm again.

Sincerely Yours

Darren Owen

  1. I’ll be here whenever you find your rhythm. I have missed you, was worried for a while. Always remember that these tough times won’t last and you will eventually bounce back better. Please take your time and rest well; physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ll pray for you. God bless you Darren.

  2. Beautifully written. This post really touched me. I’m going through so much and I’m not understanding why. I need to refocus on some things.

    1. Thank you Colleen I appreciate that. It’s a marathon with this life, in these times we don’t understand what gets me through is that in future all understanding will be revealed. Definitely refocus on a few things and take things in strides. Easier said than done


  3. Beautifully written. Take your time and be kind to yourself.
    We’ll be right here when you’re ready.
    Love always.


  4. I am right there with you. For the past month I feel like I have just been going with the flow and my motivation has been lacking. Especially when it comes to blogging. Everything feels like a chore, and it almost feels like I cant do it anymore. But then I get a comment on one of my posts and I am reminded why I do it.

    Taking time away and reducing my work load has helped alot, and I feel my mojo coming back slightly. Just know you’re not alone in feeling this way. Alot of us are in the same boat at the moment.

    1. Appreciate you Olivia. That’s exactly it! Hit the nail on the head! The key thing you’ve reminded me is remembering why we start as a way to push forward.

      I’m happy you’re getting back in your groove and mojo and I’m sure I certainly will get back into mine also. Thanks for reminding me, appreciate the support

    I feel you. It’s a tricky balance to maintain, and the motivation is not always there. I made a commitment at the beginning of the year to post every other day, and I’ve just about run out of steam already. I sat there for an hour today and couldn’t come up with anything to write. So what’s the balance between holding yourself accountable and waiting for inspiring to strike? Take care my friend.

    1. Most definitely and i hope your goal regarding your consistency of posts is working out well so far. Yeah it happens when we all have the best intentions then the energy isn’t always there. It’s a tricky one I’m learning at times to practice more patience. Thanks for your comment and you take care also Collette
