On Inspiration (Or Lack Thereof)

September 25, 2017

Hey guys, as you've probably noticed I've been feeling pretty uninspired when it comes to the blog. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say that here since this is supposed to be a source of inspiration, but it's probably apparent to long-time readers. I don't know if it's because all of my energy is going into the wedding right now or because it's 90 degrees out when all I desperately want is crisp weather but I just haven't been feeling it.

You may have noticed that my posts have been fewer as of late and I wanted to let you know that will probably stay the same until after the wedding. I feel like I have a ton of stuff I want to share (bachelorette party, wedding planning details, fall outfits) but I just don't have the energy to make it happen right now and that's okay, I don't want to force it. My priorities are elsewhere at the moment but I just know I'll be bursting to get back into it with gusto after the honeymoon. I'm sure I'll be looking forward to my creative outlet here since I won't have a wedding to plan!

Anyway, this post is basically a brain dump, but I just wanted to share my thoughts. Another thing that's been on my mind a lot lately that has contributed to the lack of inspiration is comparison. Ugh, I know. I love following other bloggers but sometimes it's a total kick in the gut when you start playing that comparison game we're all too familiar with. When you see someone who appears to be doing it all it can make you feel inadequate. I see some bloggers with full time jobs and kids and they still seem like they have more energy to put into their blogs than I do. When that starts happening and you feel like you're falling behind it's easy to think "why not just give up?". It's hard not to give into those thoughts but I've just got to remind myself that social media isn't real. This isn't my full time job, I blog because I love it. It makes me happy and I never want it to feel like a chore. All this to say, I'm going to take it easy on myself and not feel guilty when I'm not getting three posts up a week for the foreseeable future. 

Well, that's all I've got to say for today. I will be back on Wednesday though to share the Things I Like! I already have a list stockpiled :)

Here's to finding inspiration and having a good week, friends!
