You Know Depression Sucks! Life seems to spiral out of control, and I can’t seem to get back on track. So for those of you that have been looking forward to my next blog post, this is where I have been. Depression has been eating at me lately as I watch life spin out of control, my mother’s illness, and more. I have been hiding and not being social. I have not been active with my businesses, and especially here. Instagram is about the only place I have been active. Follow @ odysseyswithlove Now that my mom is home on hospice, hopefully, things will start to even out that I have extra help with her care. I am slowly getting back into my business and following my heart, I hope! I will start posting again regularly after the first of the year!
My husband would say I have a very strange addiction to yachts here lately. I started to do research on them a while back because they really did interest me, and that interest keeps going. I follow a few yachts on Instagram, one even has its own youtube channel, but I follow a deckhand and a captain also.
I have posted on Instagram lately about wanting to go back down to Padre Island National Seashore a few times now. So I am now planning our next few trips that I want to take in the next year. I have also talked about wanting to save up for a trip to Disney World, and I finally found a way to start saving for that.
Lightroom to the rescue! I really love how you can catalog all of your images with Lightroom. I have a few different catalogs that I use, My photography clients catalog has been one that I have had since I started Megan Nance Photography several years ago. But, I have had a stock photo catalog for a while now, but when I had them all together, it bogged down my computer, so I had to seperate everything into their own catalog.
I know, it has been a few days since my last post. I really am trying to stick with my blogging challenge this go-round. I have a good excuse this time. I was working this past Saturday, and I was exhausted on Sunday. I got to photograph my friend’s wedding and loved every minute of it. Now, for yesterday? I was working on my computer. I have noticed that it started to slow down some and I wanted to figure out how to speed it up. I was also trying to print and I couldn’t print in color. It took a while to fix, but I am now working on getting my Day One Journal how I want it and also on my vision board. This post is called working on my day one journal, so why did I start off talking about my accountability? Day One helps me stay accountable for my journals, and I want to keep it growing just like I am keeping this blog growing. Let’s talk about why I love Day One so far, and what I am using it for. What Is Day One? https://odysseyswithlove.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/YADE6922.mp4 I will be writing daily into my Dream Life Journal for Scripting. I will be sharing more on scripting and manifestation in a post here soon, but this is where I write out the script of my life of how I want it to go. I have also noticed that there are a lot of other ways to use the journaling app including photos and videos. But my favorite is sending the journal entry from email. It lets me type the journal entry from my computer and send it over to the app quickly. Once I have an Apple computer, I will download the app for it and will be able to do that there.
I never thought I would say this, but I am a band mom. My daughter Skyler is a Clarinetist and she is loving it. I have also realized that I don’t feature her enough on here and on Instagram and I feel really bad about that. I can’t wait to start showcasing her more as I have a few ideas to show her how proud of her I am… But Why am I so proud to be a band mom and so proud of my clarinetist?
No one is perfect, and I am no exception to this. We had a lot of stuff going on and my internet was out for most of the morning. (I REALLY NEED TO GET ON TOP OF OUR BILL PAYMENTS). After the internet was restored, I went to pay the rest of the bills and went to get the items I needed to finish Skyler’s hair. I picked up a wig that I love (and the family hates), and like an idiot, I went and had my own hair cut. More on this in a minute.
I haven’t wanted to write anything in a while. We have been busy with things around the house, we haven’t done much fun around Mesquite or gone out and done anything really either. So, I was thinking about how to get my motivation to blog back and I think a challenge is just the thing. I am looking at Pinterest for different challenges to get me back into the mood of blogging different things. I will take one of the ideas from this board and blog about that every day for the next 30 days. While I am doing this, I am also going to be creating a blog post planning spreadsheet to get other blog post created for things around Mesquite and DFW.
I few weeks ago, I purchased my original domain name, megannance.com and I have worked on it off and on getting it up and running, but I am so intertwined with Odysseys With Love that I think I am going to just keep the new site as my photography site. I was going to move over different aspects of this site to the new one, but I just don’t think that would work for me. I love Odysseys With Love and the Odysseys brand. But you know what? Sometimes life happens and I have been very busy in other areas of life than the website, but things are starting to calm down, and I will be back here soon. With a complete new look and overhall of Odysseys With Love and so much more. So loyal readers, keep a lookout!
