Lack of Inspiration

Disclaimer: this post is total catharsis.

I’m very uninspired lately. I’m bored with my blog, my drafts are looking at me begging for love but I just don’t have it right now.

Whenever I get like this I want to escape the internet for awhile. Ha, escape the internet…when I’m the one actively engaging with it.

Not sure why I make such a big fuss about having a social media account, I always debate whether I want to have it or not. Facebook is really boring and I compulsively check out, I feel the inspiration draining with each scroll. I don’t stay on for long, though, so I question whether I need or want it.

The uninspired funk goes further, I’m even debating whether I want to continue this blog.

There are things I want to write about but they don’t fit here, on the Mama Equis blog. Like at all. And I’m not sure where I want to take this blog. Well, I have some ideas but I’m struggling with transition. Adaptable as I may be, smooth transitions aren’t always my thing.

So, maybe that’s where the rut is actually holding me. I’m kind of scared of taking a leap and changing my routine. As exciting as it sounds in my daydreams, reality is a place of inertia.

Maybe the devil is just trying to hold me from realizing my potential…that’s pretty much the story of my life. That’s the story of history.

I need to do some mental detoxing and simultaneously do some God-searching, I know I know. I know the solution, I do. I’m just dealing with the emotions first. Right now the inspiration to get moving is so low because I’m exhausted.

Guess I should take some of my advice, and get some rest.

Do you have some cheese for my whine?

I am a Hopemade Woman because I hope for the promise of life through Jesus. This hope is what drives me! I am a creative romantic with big dreams of successfully merging the homemaker life, the blogger life and a spicy dash of the entrepreneurial life. What can I say? I like to juggle and that is okay--I am learning at all times, as you'll soon find out. I blog to share this hope with other women and mommas.

  1. I’ve been feeling this lately too. About the only thing interesting I have done lately is turn to Twitter. I, too, am bored with Facebook. I’m not into doing duck-lip selfies, so Instagram is a waste too although I have an account. I have been in a bit of a funk lately, so the number of posts on here has limited too. It’s great to have a community of others who understand the struggles and encourage each other. I am trusting that you will arise from this state, and the joy of the Lord will flood your soul.

    1. It is so great to have community, it’s a blessing to know there are others who can relate and who encourage us. Thanks!
      Maybe we have some things to attend to in our current lives that require us slimming down on virtual time. I’ll be praying for your clarity and peace!

  2. Your life has just changed tremendously. You don’t have to feel compelled to write weekly.

    God and your daughter will enlighten your life in so many ways that you can write from sheer inspiration.

    Your readers will still be attentive with every chapter of your life that you wish to share.

    It’s okay and actually commended for you to enjoy every waking moment with the love of your life.

    You’ve brought us on your exciting journey with you. It’s okay to take a hiatus or end it here.

    Either way this Blog will wait for you or be happy to have lived through this adventure with you.

    New beginnings are always welcomed.
    That’s what the Good Lord intends for us. Renew your mind and Live, Laugh, Love all the way through it.

  3. Feeling some of the same things lately. Why write when no one reads what I’m writing? Likes on posts are as useless as money in monopoly, but why do they matter so much to me? Why do I have so many great ideas for writing but when I sit down, nothing flows anymore. Anyways I just thought I’d share that you’re not alone!

    1. Glad I’m not alone! I totally understand the why write question. For me my apparent lack of success means I’m doing something that needs changing which is fine. What gets me is that I’m not unsure of my audience and my definite purpose so my ideas flop.

      It’s a learning process, I see.
