Do you ever experience creativity overload?
A million ideas running through your head but you are not sure which one you want to conquer first?
Lately I have been feeling this-
I have a list of things I want to do...several lists...scattered throughout my house, purse, craft room, everywhere.
I could be in the middle of something and an idea will pop into my head.
A great, brilliant idea!
This has been happening so often with my blog lately. So many ideas for posts. I want my posts to be intentional; not fluff.
But when I sit down to write, these ideas are gone. Maybe not the ideas because they are written down but the soul of the post. Does that make sense? I don't write just to write. My posts come from my heart.
I begin writing. I even get half way done.
And then I lose all motivation.
I sit down to create. I sit down to write.
It's always the same. My mind goes blank. I lose motivation. I get caught up in family life. I get tired from working over a 12 hour day. Sometimes I want to just lay on the couch in quiet. Often I just surf Pinterest.
Why do we lose motivation when we have a mind full of brilliant ideas? Is it fear of failure? Is it fear that there are other products out there that are somewhat similar? Blog posts that are similar?
I often forget that what I create and what I write is not the same as what is similar to another's. In fact they are totally different. My thoughts, my heart, my time, and personality is in all that I do.
I am my blog. I am my craft.
