Feeling extra prickly and grumpy this Monday. The weekend went by far too quickly. It felt like I had a ton of time and no time at all. That doesn’t make sense, I know, but my brain rarely thinks logically.
I have a horrible habit of overextending myself sometimes. I commit to too many things, thinking I can accomplish them all. These past few weeks have been incredibly draining and it’s rather frustrating. I feel like I’ve had zero energy + zero inspiration, resulting in zero motivation. And the most frustrating part is, I really have no one to blame but myself.
While I’m quite comfortable wallowing in my own negative feelings and frustrations, I think it’s actually healthier for me to allow myself to ease out of this rut without being too hard on myself. I want to make this week a week of encouragement. Whether its a creative rut, a workout rut or just a general life rut you’re experiencing, I wanted to share some encouraging words that will hopefully inspire, encourage and help all of us get out of whatever rut we’re in. And if you’re not in a rut, these words are just an overall great reminder to keep on keepin’ on.
- “Quit looking for approval; give away love.” -Bob Goff
- When you are struggling

writing (creating) another.

- “Part of doing something is listening. We are listening. To the sun. To the stars. To the wind.”
- “Accept that not everyone will understand you, that every soul is its own equation. While you may appear as little more than senseless gibberish to some, others will need only a single look to get a grasp of who you are. Never dull, dumb down, or adjust yourself to fit somewhere you don’t belong.” -Beau Taplin
- “You are worth finding. worth knowing. worth loving. you + all your one million layers. always hold that close.” -Danielle Doby
Wishing you the very best week possible!
