Uninspired

Uninspired. The word uninspired is defined by webster as “lacking in inspiration or originality,” which is 100% what I have been feeling lately. I love talking about being positive and being hopeful and I will never be uninspired in that zone of my life. The problem with posts that are ALL about being positive is that no one, no matter how positive they are, is that way all the time.  Everyone has bad days they have to get through, some are harder than others. Lately, I have been feeling uninspired without much reason. I am still having good days 90% of the time with the few 10% bad moments. Today, I want to talk a little about why it is okay to be uninspired sometimes. I think a lot of people who are under the assumptions that anyone who posts creative content, whether that be blogging, vlogging, instagramming, or any way someone chooses to express their creativity, has a brand new idea every second and does not have to work at it. The idea that creatives are never stricken with a lack of inspiration can be difficult to grasp. I realized that when I am not posting, I almost feel like I am doing something wrong. If other people can consistently put out good content, then I should be able to do the same, right? I am not different than anyone else so why I the only one who seems to be uninspired? I realized that I am not the ONLY one who goes through this. The world today is FULL of content creators. There are so many people who are expressing themselves and creating things for you guys, the viewers, that no one person will ever be able to see it all. I follow a multitude of different creators and they are not always posting. I have to learn to be easier on myself. I can not speak for everyone but I know I would rather see good, thought out content than something put up just to have it up. I am not someone who usually compares myself to other people. Lately, all I have been doing is comparing myself to other content creators and I have to stop. I always want to remember the whole reason I started this blog was for myself. I wanted to be able to document my life and my thoughts to be able to look back on. I appreciate anyone who reads my blog more than they will ever know and I truly believe anyone who is reading this has felt uninspired at one point in their life. You do not even have to be a creator to feel uninspired. You may feel a lack of inspiration in deciding on an outfit to wear or on what to write about for a school project. The most important thing to remember is that it is okay to not have it all together. I have never claimed to have it all together because I know I never will. I will be hit with writer’s block and a lack of inspiration so many times throughout my life. My main goal right now is to overcome these moments. I will acknowledge them. I will know they are there but I will not let them control me. I will continue to work on things I believe in and I hope that you are enjoying. Inspiration will come to you. Do not force yourself to find inspiration. My advice on finding it is simple. Use the internet. LOL. How original is that? Google things, use social media, let someone else’s story or outfit inspire you. Draw on other people’s experiences and see how you can apply those to your life. I always want to do the best for myself and anyone who reads my posts. I know it is not the fanciest setup and I am not using an excessive amount of photos but I would rather use my words to create for you. I love adding in pictures, which is a HUGE key to a lot of my inspiration. There are so many times I see a photo and like to share it with you because it has inspired a whole post. What I am writing right now is based all on a photo I saw on pexels.com that i am going to post below. I know this got a little jabbery along the way but what I want you to take away from this is that it is okay to be uninspired sometimes. Inspiration will come back to you. You will be able to create good content as long as you believe in what you are creating in your life, whether it is a blog post, a video, or even an outfit.  Create something every day. If you believe in it, share it. If not, try again. Inspiration comes and goes and that is okay. You are going to create magical things. I believe in you. I believe in me.

  1. Why is there only a like button I need a ❤!! Being creative, putting yourself out there and into something can be so draining and it is totally natural to feel this way from time to time. I have felt very uninspired to post on Instagram lately. I took a long break and feel ready to put content on there again. Sometimes a break is all you need to find inspiration. Forcing something is the biggest way to kill that passion/creativity. Everything will happen when it is meant to (unless you have a publishing deadline lol). Wonderful post as usual!

  2. I soaked up every word of this. I couldn’t put a word to what I have been feeling lately but you nailed it. “Uninspired”. I’ve tried to post positive quotes on Instagram to motivate myself but my blog has had nothing on it for a month or more until today.

  3. Great post! I think all of us feel this way sometimes. The biggest problem is “under pressure” feeling, so we try so hard to find a good inspiration. But the best things are coming unexpectedly. We should at least try to create, and sometimes an inspiration just comes somehow:)
