I have been desperately searching every nook and cranny of my brain for inspiration. This has gone on for awhile. I love to feel inspired, and I feel like my creative juices have dried up, and all my brain power has been taken up by trying to answer futile questions like, “Why am I not pregnant?” and “Why do we have so many bills?” All of that is a part of my life, but man, how freaking depressing!
I was aimlessly hunting around online earlier today, and came across some beautiful journals on Anthropologie’s website. I stared at the pictures, and for the first time in a long time, I felt inspired.
I am considering starting a journal again. Not like the kind I kept in middle school. “Dear Diary, Today I went to school. Then I came home.” More like an unstructured collection of my thoughts, inspirations, snippets of life, recipes, etc. (Recipes. Did you catch that one? Bahaha!) Blogs can be journals, but mine really hasn’t been that way for a long time. Who knows? Maybe a written journal will help inspire some ideas for the blog.
It’s the beginning of the year which means I am still allowed to believe I can successfully integrate personal projects like this into my life, right?
Where do you find inspiration for blog posts? Where do you find creative inspiration for your life? Ever feel like you are caught in a creative funk?
