Happy Monday babes! I apologize for the lack of posts on my blog over the past couple of weeks. I have been going through one of these…funks (I guess you could call it that). I would be lying to myself and all of you if I said that as bloggers we don’t go through these time periods of feeling un-inspired. I think it is important that as content creators we sometimes step away from everything for a little bit. As I mentioned, I have been going through this ‘phase’ over the past week or so where I was feeling very un-inspired. I felt like everything I was seeing on social media was just the same thing repeating itself and really wanted to do something more original. At the same time, I really wasn’t feeling inspired to go out there and create that original content I was craving – if that even makes sense! I know I am basically a walking contradiction at times.
I think it is important to do one of two things when you are feeling this way…
1) Step away and take a break from everything for a few days, a week, a month – whatever your mind needs to ‘reset’. When we take a step back from the day to day grind I think it gives our minds the opportunity to start fresh in a sense. Of course, we pick up where we left off, but oftentimes we pick up with a fresh new mindset that allows doors to open up that we didn’t even know existed before.
2) As I see it, the second option you have when you are feeling un-inspired as a content creator, is to keep creating and push through it. You might not be in LOVE with what you are creating at that moment but if you keep on going sometimes it allows you to feel inspired in an entirely other way. What I mean is, if you keep creating content during these times when you are feeling less inspired you might surprise yourself and create something you didn’t think you had in you. In a sense, I look at this as inspiring yourself. Kind of like when you have been working out hard and aren’t seeing the results you want. Then one day you wake up, look in the mirror and see the hint of your abs coming through, or your pants fit better, or you see muscle definition in your arms…. Seeing any one of these things could inspire you to keep on going because you are finally seeing the results from all that hard work!
The great news is I can totally feel myself coming out of my funk and I am feeling super inspired to go create new content for you guys! With the holidays coming up I know it is going to be a busy time to provide you all with new, fun, and interactive content!
In the meantime, I would love to hear how you guys get out of a funk when you are just feeling blah?! Leave a comment and let me know!
