Inspiration can be as elusive as Big Foot, Snuffleupagus, or the chupacabra…simply not there. And if we wait for it to return, we might be waiting for awhile. So what’s one to do?
One one hand, we might be convinced to push ahead relentlessly. There is a school of thought that says discipline – doing something worthwhile whether or not you feel like it – is how to move forward and for the most part I agree.
There are days you just have to do the next right thing regardless how you feel about it. It’s commonly called being an adult or as I like to call it – adult-ing. Not always fun and certainly not inspired but important nonetheless.
On the flip, often ignored, side there is the concept of rest. Of unplugging and resetting in order to see things straight again and for inspiration to return. As Anne Lamont puts it so well…Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.
I’d love to hear where you will live today? On the go go go no matter what side or the take a minute, or day, or week or two and regroup? No right answer – both serve us well – just at different times.
It’s Five Minute Friday… five minutes of uninterrupted writing…no editing. No overthinking. Just write! The exercise of writing for just five minutes is to help build a writing discipline and I thank you for tagging along as I work on my writing craft!
