Sometimes I have zero inspiration. Literally none. I don’t write my posts ahead of time and I don’t use an editorial calendar, so all these uh – gems of posts come from my happy-go-lucky, brownie loving, style obsessed mind right before you read them. So there are days where I just don’t feel inspired. Hmm, do I want to write about those really adorable cat emojis on Facebook Messenger? Would any one be genuinely interested in my current obsession with laying in bed with my sweatpants on and no bra and reading Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?” What about my love for smoked gouda cheese? Is anyone interested in that? My plans for world domination and to marry (simultaneously, of course) are unlikely to garner anything but skeeved out online glares.
On LACB, I really look to celebrate life through fashion, adventures and the little things. But sometimes, life isn’t particularly exciting. Sometimes you just have to grind through it. When I’m lacking inspiration, instead of sitting in my bed and crying with a large jar of nutella and wondering, “Why me?”. I try to take a somewhat less pathetic approach and just step away completely from the computer and the online world. I like to write (with an actual pen and paper – unheard of today, I know) and I also like to hike and binge watch the Food Network. Sometimes the best thing you can do is just take a break.
My absolute favorite ways to get re-inspired though? Spend time outdoors. Attend local events. Do something different. Hang out with friends and stay away from social media. Try a new recipe for those delicious double chocolate chip cheesecake brownies. Travel. Read a book. Read the newspaper. Read anything really (except those lame pamphlets that people always put under the windshield wipers of your car).
The key is to stop looking for it. It will find you again when you least expect it.
