Potentially Problematic: Uninspired and easily tired


Some days, you can look around and see the beauty in everything. Some days, inspiration surrounds you wherever you go. Some days, everything seems wonderful, frivolous, and perfectly flawed.
And some days, everything seems completely and utterly dull.

Having an optimistic attitude is a great way to go about your life, but there’s no denying it can get tiring. Everyday can’t be a perfect day and everyday won’t be a perfect day.

However, it goes further than simply having a “perfect” day. There can be beauty in imperfection, and having a positive outlook helps one to recognize that, to love it and accept it. But some days — regardless of which side of the bed you wake up on and how good or bad of a day it may be– you just cannot be inspired by anything around you.

Sometimes, you are overworked and far too exhausted to notice the masterpieces being painted around you; other times, there isn’t a thing that you have changed about how you go about your day. Un-inspiration can hit at any time, anywhere.

A piece of uninspired advice for those in the former category: sometimes you just have to suck it up and make it happen.

While some may be able to wait for the sun to rise and allow its light to illuminate their path, the rest of us are left wondering where we went wrong. It can be unbearably tempting to blame this on the world around you, to impress upon the world the same black and white vision you have been unfortunately handed. But blaming doesn’t bring back color. This, unfortunately, leaves one wondering how they could possibly find their mojo once again.

To that, the only advice I can offer is the same that I’ve been given an innumerable amount of times, though I would only begrudgingly oblige once it was the last option remaining: make a change. Whether it’s dropping something that you can no longer balance or switching up your morning routine so you can do yoga before brushing your teeth, make a change.

You don’t have to have something to say everyday. You don’t have to have an opinion on every subject. You don’t have to be inspired by everything you see and hear and feel throughout the day. But don’t blame the rest of the world for your own problems; make things happen on your own.
