What is your why?
This is an interesting question, because it makes me think about the reason that I do this. Initially, my answer was because I want to take others on this journey with me as I am doing it, but then I began to further ponder on the idea that maybe, I have a voice and this is my way of expressing myself. In that voice, there are others who are interested in what I have to say, and maybe they feel a kinship in what I am expressing.
If you don’t say what it is you want to say, how do you know that what you say won’t change the trajectory of someone else’s life? The pandemic has brought alot of opportunities for those who where “invisible” to be creative in spaces that were available, but largely unexplored. There were people who adapted and took the time to engage in creative exploration, are the ones who are thriving at this point. If anything, there are more people thinking about what they want from life at this point. That is a good thing, because before, it was more about the daily grind and not really getting anywhere when it comes to personal fulfillment and what makes you happy.
As far as inspiration, 2021 has shown us that it is closer than we think. Those that are most connected to us, provide those simple ideas, not famous celebrities, or youtube stars…..just the environment around you.
What is really amazing is that emotions can help fuel you in achieving your goals. When you take time away from distractions, this allows for you to tune into your “creative vibe.” During this time, I have started to epxlore the things that I am interested in and explore paths in favor of relieving my stress, which has helped me tremendously, to deal with the everyday stresses and even the unexpected or unintended stresses the pandemic has presented.
One thing I will definitely be looking to try is 30 Creative Ways to Spend Your Free Time During Covis-19.
I blog because it helps my emotional state and my focus. Why do you blog? Feel free to comment.
