For all my artist of every form out there have you’ve ever been creatively blocked? Like all of your creative juices are just running on empty. That’s definitely how I’ve been feeling for the past couple of weeks. I’m not sure what’s even wrong with me. I have been working a whole lot more than usual and, granted some days I am more tired than usual but, I don’t think that’s my problem either. I’m simply out of juice. I’m completely baffled because I’ve been eating better semi working out but all around I’ve been feeling pretty good. In the past 3 weeks I've started at least 3 blog posts and haven’t been able to finish them. I’m having this issue where I can't seem to turn my ideas into vision, I get completely stuck and that feeling is not okay with me.
The last time I remember feeling like this was in college when I would have multiple projects happening at once. Having to focus on so many things caused my brain into creative overload causing it to come to a screeching halt. This time it feels different because usually I could just stop what I’m doing and just come back to it the next day and a burst of creative energy would take over me and I was able to create something amazing. Lately my breaks haven’t been working so it was time to figure something out.
I figured maybe what I need is a clean slate. I needed to unclog whatever is blocking my creative juices from flowing. I started to mediate and trying not to think about anything but the present. So many times we have so much going on that we are weeks and months ahead of ourselves. I found that I do this a lot I’m always thinking about things I have coming up so much that I almost never know what the current date is because I’m already thinking about what I have to do tomorrow. I talk so much about living in the present and not trying to document everything single second with a photograph but, I didn’t know that also meant living for today and not thinking so far into the future. From now on I’m going to handle life day by day to avoid another creative block.
