Feeling Uninspired

Feeling Uninspired

As much as I’d like to blame my hectic work schedule, being ill and my work load trying to get things done before December hits us. Feeling uninspired had played a huge part in me producing less posts recently.

The sad reality is not feeling inspired happens to everyone and sadly it’s been happening to me for months, having a hectic work schedule and work load has ways to work around that putting in late nights is that answer but by the time I get home all I want to do is get into bed and watch The Voice or whatever series I have. That’s me being very unproductive but the constant stress just makes me lazy and not want to do anything let alone think about the posts I need to get done and photos that needs to be taken.

Sometimes you just need to take a step back and think about why you loved to blog in the first place. This is something I am currently battling with,  Winter has seriously taken its toll of me and just recovering from being ill and out of work for 2 weeks I have decided to take it easy and let my inspiration and passion for blogging come naturally. I honestly don’t like this feeling at all, especially with blogging being the only escape I have and community I can relate to other then this I have no friends which is sad but true. Justin is my only rock but men can only take so much about you talking about makeup or girl things –  poor soul he tries…  There’s just this passion for writing about whatever I want that makes me feel a lot better a way to vent and to share things I like.  It’s important for me to try and focus on that to help me get over this rut I’m currently in.

    Hey Candice! Don’t feel bad. We all get that way. Sometimes I can blog for 5 days straight. Other times only 3 days (and that’s a struggle HaHaHa). Do what’s best for you in the moment.

    Oh Candice I completely understand how you’re feeling. I had a year off from my blog a few years back when I just felt so uninspired. But I promise it will come back to you and you’ll enjoy blogging once again without it feeling like a chore. Just don’t put any pressure on yourself or feel bad, we all have these phases xxx

        I did! I probably wouldn’t recommend a whole year as I pretty much restarted but it definitely helped me reset!

    I totally feel you. This post really describe myself. Im starting to blog again, after months of feeling uninspired. I have office work 8 to 5 so I feel mentally drained often.

    I had to sit down and think why I love to blog… why I started…. and fall in love with it again. I love beauty, travel, food… but the main reason is writing. I love to share my thoughts, not only on products or a recipe, but about life in general. Few months ago, I felt so frustrated about my blog. And, don’t get me wrong, I really, really, really love to review beauty products, skincare… im truly enjoy makeup, etc. But I realize that I want to expand more. Write about insecurities, feelings, experiences, happiness, sadness, what I love, what I hate; meaningful things for us women… write about life. My blog was only beauty oriented, so I decide to do a re – design, now its not only beauty, its a lifestyle blog.

    Don’t feel bad. Stress can knock us for a while, take a break to re fuel your mind and soul. Writing is your passion, so you will be coming soon! <3 Get well. Hugs from Panama!

    I feel you! Last week I was feeling the same so I took the weekend off. I completely took my off the blog and just enjoyed time with hubby and friends. Taking time off is crucial when feeling inspired. It allows our brains to reset and refresh!

    I felt uninspired recently 🙁 It goes away though and once it does you’ll feel a million times better!

      Thank you love – will try and do that to get my head clear

    Hang in there. I know how it is to lose sight of your goals, especially when it comes to blogging but sticking with it no matter what has been so rewarding. I try write down my goals so I’m constantly reminded. :]

    I completely understand! I go through phases of being uninspired and having no energy. Even if you love doing something, you need to take a break from it every once in awhile. It’s really discouraging when your in a funk and just can’t seem to do anything to break out of it, but remember that it will pass and inspiration will come again.

    I understand you, because I went through the same. Sometimes even do well to move away from a little and come back in force. I wait for inspiration soon. 🙂

    I feel you so much! It seems that everyone is going through an uninspired phase, I too was going through one, but went away on holiday and it done the trick. Hope you find something that helps you too! xx

    It happens, blogging is based on creativity and inspiration just as much as story writing. It happens. Before you know it the inspiration will come back. I personally pre-write A LOT of blog posts when the inspiration is high so even when i am not writing posts, i can still post up stuff during my busy/un-inspired times.

      Thank you Bernadette – I have been pre-writting when the inspiration does hit me

    It will definitely pass and being sick for that long is always hard! I’ve had a recent bout of lacking inspiration lately as well and I actually had to cut back on the amount of blogging I did. Cutting back actually made me want to blog on the days I was scheduled to and feeling less pressured made me love blogging again. Take the time you need to get back into it girl! XO -Kim
