Hi friends! It’s been an entire month since we’ve spoken so I hope we haven’t become too much of strangers!! Can it really be June already? To me, June always signified the beginning got summer and with the crazy warm weather we’ve been getting, summer is definitely here. And more exciting news: today is national donut day….so go grab yourself some donuts!
But let’s go back to one of my favorite types of posts: talking about goals for the month. In May. I was stuck in a creative funk and couldn’t get out of it. Thus the lack of blog posts. I took time out to complete tasks in my life and kind of put the blog on the back burner to really think about what I wanted to do moving forward. At all times, I have a whole list of topics to talk about and a whole album of photos to share, but I couldn’t get myself to sit down and put them together. I didn’t know what was wrong with me! I felt as if I had nothing valuable to share anymore. Somehow along the way, my creativity bubble had burst in my face.
So for June, I want that bubble back. Starting out, I am going to restructure how I want my creativity to flow. Usually I block out a chunk of time in my day to just sit down and think of a topic I want to write about and then add the necessary photos. Since I was still a student, planning was crucial and this was the only way I knew how to make time for this space. But it has led me to the stagnant period…which was not fun!
Starting now, I want to be more casual with my creativity. Restructuring my creativity bubble to make sure it doesn’t pop again ya know. And to start off, I want to be on less of a schedule and to write whenever it an idea strikes. Whether that be sitting down and writing it right away or just making sure to document the idea somewhere. Instead of focusing on what I must produce for ht blog, I want to create more content on whatever flows. Sometimes, it’s harder for me to write about an outfit than it is to write about life, which is tricky to navigate when I am trying to create a balance of material.
I’ve also made a conscious effort to stop looking at numbers in regards to growth, whether it be on this blog or on my connected Instagram account. So often I couldn’t really tap into my creativity because I was so focused on thinking about what I need to do to grow. There was a period of time that I was so focused on the numbers, I stopped interacting with you all as much and it was NOT fun. Genuine connections has really pushed me to continue what I am doing. This blog was created to fuel that creativity and I want to make sure I am going back to the beginning, where I wrote and posted what made me happy.
So I guess “restructuring my creativity bubble” means tapping back into what made me start this blog in the first place. To go back to connecting with like-minded people, to share what I find most exciting, regardless if I already wrote about it a million times, and to really let my creative juices flow whenever it calls. I think the transition back might be hard and I could fall into my habits again, but I am going to put 110% into this. I want to make sure this blog becomes my creative sanctuary again. I’m so excited for June and what’s to come and I hope you’re still along for the journey!
A million and one thanks for reading — until my next lil’ thought then!
