Happy Friday Soberistas! 💗 I need your help!! I had a realization last night as I was driving to the store, albeit a very simple one... Life is BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING.
I’m young in sobriety but have already seen it’s amazing changes to my life and my overall happiness.
But let’s be honest... not all days are great, I actually have a lot of down days. I always try to change my way of thinking and focus on all the great things I have in my life but sometimes that’s tough when I think about how other parts of my life have taken the back seat to my sobriety.
Since getting sober I have done hardly anything to grow my business. If we’re being honest I haven’t worked at it nearly as hard as I was. I’ve lost my spark and I’m trying so so hard to get it back. But it seems like every day I am procrastinating and I keep telling myself “Oh I’ll get to that next week.” My question for you all is: have you ever been in this moment in your sobriety? Have you been so focused on your sobriety that other parts of your life suffered?
If so, I would LOVE to hear from you. Because I could seriously use some encouragement from someone that has been here. Maybe tips/tricks or motivations that helped you?
Leave a comment or DM me, please!! 💗💗💗
Being a creative doesn't necessarily mean always being inspired or motivated to work, but living in a performance based society has made us out to feel as though we need to be inspired and motivated through and through.
When it comes to staying creative I think it's important to recognize the balance between your subconscious and concious mind. In a perfect world they work together in harmony where your subconscious feeds ideas to the concious mind in an effort to translate it into something the world can experience. More often then not though our concious mind has an endless hunger and our subconscious runs out of ideas when its bored and unenthused.
I've found whenever I hit some kind of creative rut it's a direct reflection of being bored with my surroundings, almost as if to say it's the been there's and done that's of the adult mind... Where nothing appears to be new or fresh, but rather dull and uninspiring.
Everyone has a remedy that allows them to break free of this, but in general terms I've found that when I worry less, connect and learn from others and have a change of scenerey with going on new adventures, I'm happier, more inspired and appreciative of the present moment. And so I pose the question on to you...what do you do when you're in a creative rut?
Here's a few memories from a hike along the foothills this past spring around dusk. I love those last slivers of light that welcomes in the evening. I need to head back there soon to see what's happened to all those caterpillars 🦋🌄
I’ve seen @mumfordandsons play a giant field in Salida where I car camped by myself and drank moonshine out of a milk jug with some family from WalaWala, Washington. A small random bar on the side of a river in Salida with a cup full of that moonshine, and a few times at @fiddlersgreenco and they never disappoint.
Last night was the most fun I’ve had taking their photos and listening to them rock the amphitheater was great.
