I think around this time every year I get to feeling a little bit stagnant. I get to feeling like I don't know what to share, I don't know what to blog about, I just feel a little less inspired. I don't know if it is the changing weather or what...but sometimes I feel like I need to just take a break.
So, I'm just writing this to say you may find fewer posts than normal on the blog in the near future. Do not be alarmed! I will come back to blogging. I always do! I have a few posts scheduled up and a few ideas I hope to see to fruition.....but there's just going to be a lot of silence here. So be sure to check me out on Instagram and Snapchat (both are @fivesixteenths) and my YouTube channel.
While I'm gone though, this is probably what I'm doing
Failing at a lot of projects
Whenever I feel less inspired, I always just make things. I make random things - things I'll never use, things that suck, things that don't work out. This helps me get out the creative energy I feel I have building up but can't execute. It clears way for more focused creativity.
I'll be thinking a lot about what I'm doing and why I'm doing it. This will lead me back to why I started blogging in the first place and it may lead me to a new change in the blog. I might come back with brand new ideas or I might come back with a brand new perspective. My main concern now is to make sure that I am offering diverse content that I'm proud of. I don't want to continually offer the same type of content over and over - there are a few different things I'm interested it....so I need to find that balance and brainstorm new content regarding the things I love.
Mainly I'll be trying to move Forward. My word of the year really comes into play here. I feel like I've been moving in that forward motion but I'm feeling myself slow up. So I just need to take a second, sit back, and see where I need to go next. There are a few things I need to do to get me back on track. I've got a ton of ideas in my head but they are being blocked by the energy to create and the inability to follow through. So I'll probably be taking some time to get my head back on straight.
