When You Feel Stuck

When You Feel Stuck

The last few weeks I felt extremely stuck.

I have felt stuck in my creativity.

I know that this happens but it was a hard time for me.

I haven’t blogged in a while, I just didn’t have anything to write about. I probably did but I couldn’t find the words or the passion.

The way I would describe how I felt was like trying to walk in thick mud, if that is even possible? The energy that is needed to just move forward was hard and it was draining.

I suppose it didn’t help that I was unwell and I didn’t want to take any days of work.

I pushed on, I did and I was okay about it.

I know that it is really important that when you are not feeling 100% to surround yourself with others that can encourage you.

To have other that can inspire you.

A few weeks ago I had a Skype session with my friend and mentor. It was so much fun and I was refocussed on some goals that I had set earlier on in the year.

Then last Saturday I went to a writing, blogging and publishing catch up at a lovely café.  It was so good to see what other people are doing and learning some new ideas about blogging.

Then on Wednesday I went to another café to meet with lots of creatives. Loved the night and also seeing what others are doing.

Now I am feeling inspired, I am feeling inspired to write, to work on goals, to take pictures and to just be creative.

What do you do when you find yourself stuck in the creative process?

Do you have friends that you can talk to, that can encourage you?

Will share more soon.

Breakout

The last few months I have felt a little stuck, stuck with creativity and stuck with where I am at in my life.

Don’t panic it is all good, I am okay. Yes really I am.

I love my career and I love what I able to do and all the people that I am able to meet and that I am able to journey with.

I think what I really needed was to rest, to spend some time at home on my own.

I have still been going out but not as much as I have wanted too.

The time that I have had on my own has been good.

I feel that November, that now is the time to-

Breakout

I want to mix things up a bit.

I suppose that I need a few new projects.

I have an amazing supervisor with my Chaplaincy and I am reminded of the questions that he asked me-

  1. What are you doing to replenish yourself?
  2. Are you getting time to exercise?
  3. Are you connecting into a church?

I am reminded daily about these questions and making the time to replenish myself.

I have also gone back to boxing and I am loving it.

I have decided to go to a friend’s church and just fellowship there.

I have to continually remind myself of these three questions daily to keep them fresh in my mind. Also to remind me that these are important things that I need to do to run my race.

So my challenge for November is to breakout to shake things up a bit and to catch up with friends.

I also want to get back to singing to make this a priority.

Stay Tuned November is exciting.

What is something that you can do to breakout this November?

I would love to hear your ideas?

Will share more soon.
