I'm Struggling

Day twenty: Share something you're struggling with right now.

Roller derby.

I've lost some passion for it. Some. I'm struggling and feel like I'm not getting any better. I know I've gotten a lot better since I started over a year ago but I feel like I've hit a plateau.

I've decided to take a break to miss it. I don't know if it's the best option but it's a last resort. I'm going to work on outdoor skating, weights and general fitness. I'll still do drills once a week rather than two unless studying gets in the way with that too.

I had this week off and I already miss it. I feel like a teenager who's missed a party. It's not an enjoyable feeling but one that I need to work through, I'm (obviously) not a teenager and derby is hard work. It's supposed to be fun though and I'm not walking away happy. That's not what I want.

In six weeks I'll be back stronger and happier.


  1. Sometimes taking a break is the best thing to renew enthusiasm - at least, I know it works for me, with my blog for instance. Good luck!

  2. I hope you find the place you want to be in & the break is exactly what you need.


Just like everyone else I LOVE comments and they make me SMILE. I'll reply as soon as I can, but please know that I appreciate and read EVERY single comment. Thanks xxx
