Inspiration

Sometimes I feel a little lost, this is when I try very hard to not feel guilty for stopping for a while.  Putting the phone down and turning it off, not going near the laptop and to tell myself it doesn’t matter that I’ve stepped away from the technology for a moment.   I get a bit frustrated with myself that I can’t muster good ideas or create good images for instagram but I also get a bit scared that what if it never comes back; what if I’ve peaked.

I do try very hard to be mindful, working through some of the knots I’ve got my head into, I spend a lot of time reading indulging in my favourite magazines and interior books hoping that a spark will appear.   Taking time away from the screens is good but I do let myself browse through Pinterest, a happy place where colour and images bring moments of joy.  Putting together mood boards that reflect what I’m seeing and feeling helps too.

So today this post features some of these boards; calming images in colour palettes that I find inspiring at the moment helping me to work through my anxieties a little and hopefully a little spark will be reignited once more.

  1. The headspace of a creative! I adore everything you put out. If a pause is required then all to the good. It’s what you do do I notice, not what you don’t do x

  2. Such an inspirational and beautiful post. It is indeed a struggle not to feel like we’re committing a sin when switching off and stepping away, but I now realise it also feels deliciously rebellious to do so. I agree with the other comment here, it is the quality of what you put in, not the quantity, that we keep coming back to. So go ahead, step away and rebel! We’ll still be here for you 🙌
