I’m a bit caught in an inspiration drought! And I’m just so happy it’s weekend. The weekend is important. It’s for getting some much needed rest, regaining strength, for getting your ducks in a row, and forget that you are a grown up and maybe just live a little.
I know that I have been exceptionally bad at posting these past few weeks. I wish that I could tell you that I have been super busy with exciting things that has kept me from updating you, but the truth is that I have been drowning in stupid, boring grown up things. My inspiration is nowhere to be found and is probably buried under job applications, deadlines and bills. I can hardly remember this feeling, and it’s not exactly uplifting. I depend so much on my inspiration, to keep pushing forward when my life is demanding, and I need to get it back. Last Monday I started an internship with Tellymo, working with motion design and editing, and this coming week my article with Less Magazine, about fashion and happiness, is launching, and it’s starting to feel like I’m getting my energy back a little. Leaving university and finishing off my master’s degree was one thing, creating balance and learning how to properly be a grownup, without the support of being, a student is quite another. Today I have been trying to collect the pieces of my life together, in an entirely new order. I’m excited about this huge change in my life, I just need to figure out how everything fits together now. I really need to dig out my inspiration.
Measures taken to regain inspiration/things that can make me more inspired and focused right now: Restart learning French on Duolingo, run whenever I want, make a new vision board, stake out my goals and ambitions, cut myself some serious slack, truly apply myself to the things i’m doing and be present with it without drifting, think less and live more.
But for now, it’s the weekend, it’s Sunday. And Sunday is the very best day of the week. Made for sleeping in, watching movies, drinking coffee, fresh air and cuddles. Too bad I’ve spent mine preparing documents, applications and teaching material. It’s not happening again. Wishing for french cheese and wine for dinner, great company and a little time off grownup mode.
