Saturday Night Musings–Fighting for My Creativity

Leave a comment
Uncategorized

I’ve allowed life to pass me by and I’ve been stuck in one hell of a rut. I’ve lost my way–any sense of direction. I want to be creative again, even if it’s simple, small stuff. Even if I’m just scribbling doodles on a piece of scrap paper, I just want to be true to my artistic nature. I’m annoyed with myself from wasting so much time focusing on the wrong things in life. I […]

Hitting a Creative Block

From a creative standpoint, I have hit a block. Whether it be writing, drawing, or music, I have been stalled in the creation process. I think for the past couple of months, I have tried too hard. I pushed myself to write, paint, craft–create anything that I could come up with. I feel like a runaway train that has finally crashed, unable to will herself to move forward. I think a lot of it has […]

Hermit Saturday

Hiding from the world today, writing my heart out. These days are rare and I am thankful that I get even this one. Sometimes, writing is the only way I stop myself from saying or doing something that I truly regret. My anger can really bottle up, bubbles of rage that threaten to boil over. It’s not that I wish that people would do what I say or that things have to go my way. […]

I’ve always held this song from All American Rejects close to my heart. This has been a rough week for me–but I know it has been a tough one for us all.

We always think that we need wealth […]

My Vision of Success?

My last few posts have fallen on the negative side and I truly wish there was no need to travel such a low path. The reason that I’ve allowed myself to remain honest with how I feel is because I value emotional truth. I just don’t think that lying to oneself does any favors but suppress an uncomfortable sensation. For me, attempting to stamp out any unpleasant emotions does nothing but ensure a future explosion. […]

Attempting to Separate Myself from My Emotions…

The past few weeks have left me inundated with sadness. I have tried every attempt to cheer myself up but it has resulted in nothing but poor decisions and impulse purchases. I wish that shopping wasn’t such a cathartic experience because I just stack on my debt this way. Unfortunately, nothing but buying has been able to keep my mind off my negative emotions. I have tried and tried to determine what is causing my […]

Lost in Anxiety

I am not certain why each day has left me more and more anxious. I feel like I am doing everything wrong and couldn’t be more lost. There’s so many things that I need to change–to mend–and I can’t figure out where to begin. I don’t know why I struggle so much to figure out my life. I am a constant seeker of knowledge–running to the self-help books and guides with the hopes that I […]
