I haven't been writing for my blog recently because of a lack of inspiration to put it simply. I haven't been moved to write anything soul baring or anything that I feel would push me to be a better writer or to step out of my comfort zone. Honestly, I don't even know what I want to write about right now. I don't know what it is but my focus and energy towards my work, academic or otherwise, just isn't as consistent as it has been in the past. And I don't want to continue putting all of my energy towards extra projects right now if I'm slipping in other areas of my life. So basically what I'm lacking right now is balance.
I've tried a lot of things that I thought would help me find that balance again, most importantly going home, but it just didn't put me in the same mindset that I thought it would. I've been trying to do other things that usually help me find balance, but for some reason they just aren't working anymore...so I guess I'll try something different.
The reason I'm writing this is because I want my blog and myself, for that matter, to just be better overall. Everyone has to start from somewhere and learn and work their way up but, for me, the problem of my lack of motivation comes into play. I'm not passionate about the small things I have to do in order to be able to do the big things.
What I'm trying to get at is that I'm in the process of figuring out how to get motivated about the small stuff so that I can give my all to what I'm truly passionate about (once I figure out what that is). I don't know if it matters, but I just need to give myself the time and space to find the inspiration and discipline that I had before so that I can produce more meaningful and higher quality work in all aspects of my life. Every season of your life requires a different and better version of yourself and I guess I'm just trying to figure out what that looks like for me right now. Thanks again to everyone for the positive feedback on "WYS?", while I'm on this little break I have some ideas for future projects and blog posts that I'll still be working on so stay tuned.
