So today happens to be one of those days when I don’t feel too good about actually writing anything. I have started writing something about 10 times and hit ‘Backspace’ 10 times because I can’t seem to think of anything to say here today. I have no poem, no journal entry that I feel brave enough to share, no draft that I feel like working on— nothing. I just have other things on my mind that are holding me back from writing today and I just want to tell you that it is okay to feel that way sometimes.
I’ve had a couple of productive days so far, and I think I deserve a break of sorts. Part of my lack of inspiration today could be because I tried to take a particularly difficult and artsy photo and failed at it. Now, nothing feels good enough to me. I’ll be okay, I just have to let myself be sad about it for a little while. I guess anybody who has failed at doing something they really wanted to do has been through this. It’s nothing new. It happens to everyone at some point in time.
I am only writing this because I want my readers to know that I am not the highly motivated person full of good ideas that they think I am 100% of the time. I have days when I don’t feel like writing at all. It doesn’t feel like a burden or anything; it’s just that sometimes, we all need to sleep on an idea and go back to working on it when we are ready to do so. I had other things keeping me company today, when I wasn’t writing. It could be something else for you.
Take it easy on yourself. You don’t have to be productive all the time.
