This post is brought to you by writer’s block. And if you’re wondering, yes, I did mean to type “Inspivation” and no, it’s not a typo. To me, inspiration and motivation are highly connected and go hand in hand; therefore, I found morphing the two words felt right. Motivation and inspiration are two significant pieces you need to complete the most mundane task or to create your masterpiece.
I’ll admit it – over the last week I’ve felt slightly lack luster in the writing and creativity department of my brain. Call it writer’s block or being stuck “in a rut”, my motivation was nowhere to be found likely because I wasn’t feeling inspired. Everyone can relate to this feeling, but not many people realize that this uninspired feeling is a good thing. It means inspiration is coming in one form or another – what goes up must come down, yes? I recently opened up a brand new cookbook and became entranced. The recipes, the beautiful photos, the stomach grumbling… I want to cook ALL THE RECIPES!!! And there you have it, I became inspired with new ideas. I suddenly became motivated to write, to make meal plans, to make new pieces; motivation came to me like a jolt of caffeine.
Feeling uninspired can lead to lack of motivation, but just remember – inspiration is just around the corner. Check out new blogs (I read A TON of blogs), new magazines, books, quotes, a soul-cleansing yoga session, photos of things you love, anything!
