Wouldn’t it be great if the words just flowed.
All the time.
Whether you write when you’re feeling creative or you channel your content, there are times where we just aren’t feeling it.
It could be because you’re sick, you’re just not in the mood, or because it’s a fucking Monday.
And that’s okay.
It’s okay to not be inspired 100% of the time.
It’s okay to feel what you’re feeling.
But even when we’re not inspired, business must go on. Content must to be created in order to be consistently visible. So here’s what to do when you just don’t feel inspired.
Don’t force it. #1 rule. It just won’t come from an energetically aligned place, and people can tell when you’re not in that right place.
Read or watch TV. Sounds counterintuitive but this works wonders. The reason is two fold: you’re no longer actively thinking about what to write and you’re not forcing things, and you just may see/read something that sparks some inspiration.
Journal or free write. If you don’t know what to write about, just write. About anything. Just put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard, whatever floats your boat) and just see what comes out. You may not get an entire post but chances are you will find something you feel inspired to talk or write further about.
Mediate. This works similarly to watching TV or reading. When you clear your mind of the busy thoughts and all the “shoulds” you are much more likely to channel some epic shit.
Revisit your mission. Go back to what you want to share in the first place. What is the big thing you want to share with the world? Revisit it to remind yourself, and start writing.
Use a prompt. When you’re really stuck, use a content prompt to get the ideas flowing.
If you’re continually not inspired, I want to invite you to explore that future. What’s the deeper reason? Maybe you’re not aligned with your message. Maybe it’s time to revisit what your big vision and what you want to create in the world.
We all get stuck sometimes. We all go through periods when we’re just not feeling it. And it’s okay. Just don’t let it become an excuse to not show up confidently and consistently.
Remember, content doesn’t have to be perfect or look a certain way. It’s more about you sharing your wisdom and magic with the world than anything else. So just share what you’re feeling called to share and trust that it’s the right message.
