I did this as a guest post for Katie this week and thought I would share!
My life revolves around creativity. I am a blogger (here), I am an abstract artist (here), we own an art studio for kids (here), my husband is a photographer and makes movies and I also do blog design (here). So being completely honest a lot of times I am just burnt out!
I am constantly creating.
So maybe the trick is to let ourselves have breaks…then in a moment we don’t expect it, we will be re.inspired.
A fresh tube of paint,
feet hitting the pavement on an evening run,
the first snow of winter,
a great song on the radio with the windows down,
a late night sitting on the kitchen floor talking with your husband about dreams.
These are the moments that I run and write out a blog post or grab my paintbrush.
But you know it’s okay to not feel inspired or creative all the time. That is exhausting. I say don’t force it. If it’s not there, that’s okay. And I say be true to who you are. For me personally, I am not so good in some areas- like recipes. So those I normally let guest posts have…I am not trying to be something I’m not. Sometimes we need to cut ourselves a break.
We will come back better, more creative.
If you have been in a rut for awhile I say get back to what you love.
For me I would go sit by a lake and watch the sunset, I would put a good song on the radio and dance with my babies, I would eat waffles on my back porch or look through pictures on pinterest…..then maybe somewhere along the way….in a moment you aren’t looking for it, aren’t forcing it or expecting it-
you will find it again.
