The struggles of creating during lockdown

The struggles of creating during lockdown

Hey Guys, how you doing? How are you holding up?

So there’s a lot going on right now and it’s pretty scary. It’s also like nothing we’ve ever seen before, at least in our lifetime. Normally in times of trouble, I’d turn to writing or expressing myself in some creative way. But I’ve struggled with this so much. I’m finding it hard to create and it’s freaking me out! 

But I’m not alone, so many of us are finding the pressure to create with all this ‘spare’ time, crippling. Others are flourishing and putting out the most amazing content I’ve ever seen.

So how do you overcome or rather, make peace with not being able to create? Here’s how I’m figuring it out…

Hotel Series #Chapter 1 – Boundaries

Hotel Series #Chapter 1 – Boundaries

Hey everyone. I’ve been MIA. I know it’s terrible, but I’m back and talking about boundaries…

If I’m honest with you all, I’ve just not had the urge to write. My thoughts have been too garbled to be useful to anyone. I’ve been busy and tired, with a back page full of incomplete posts.

Today is different. Today, I sit in a hotel room not far from home finally ready to write. It’s approximately 5pm, the sky is murky but beautiful. I’ve come to talk to my fellow bloggers, and muse over life with my readers. It’s a fresh chapter to what I hope will continue in 2020. Chronicling my life in a bunch of random hotel rooms – an escape from the hustle and bustle. A place, totally detached from what I know…

How to take an ‘L’ as a young adult

How to take an ‘L’ as a young adult

Hey Guys? What’s new? How’s your week been?

Yes, I know I’ve been MIA – let’s just skim over that and get right into it.

So, I’m sure you’re wondering what exactly an ‘L’ is. For those of you not down with the lingo, an ‘L’ stands for a loss. And as young people the losses we experience as we ‘adult’ tends to take a bigger toll on us and perhaps longer to recover from. So, I wanted to talk about the various lessons I learnt from my losses and how you can too…

Why you don’t have to monetise your joy

Why you don’t have to monetise your joy

Hello Everyone! What’s new? How’s it going?

Now I should honestly hang my head in shame because I’ve been gone for two months. But I’m back and was recently inspired by an article on the trap of turning your hobby into a hustle. And it made me think why so many of us (myself included) are making our hobbies a source of income and not just something we enjoy.

How To Deal With Burnout As A Young Adult
Hi Guys! How you doing? What’s new? 

So this topic has only recently become relevant to me as I’ve been experiencing it a lot myself these past few months. And that’s absolute burnout.

The tiredness that comes with having had thrown yourself into everything and feeling so finished at the end. And so many of us go through this without knowing how to deal with it, especially as young adults.

Struggling to remain disciplined? Maybe you’re not committed enough…

Struggling to remain disciplined? Maybe you’re not committed enough…

Hey guys! What’s new? How’s your week been?

So I’ve been completely M.I.A. I know, I know. It literally goes against all the principles of my blog and my life in general. But I suppose that’s why I enjoy doing this. It shows me where I lack commitment no matter how disciplined I try to be. And it’s really important to know the difference, crucial to making anything succeed…

Why I stopped being so hard on myself

Why I stopped being so hard on myself

Hey guys! What’s new? How’s your week been?

So, I wanted to talk about how we can be really hard on ourselves, causing the very effects we are working to avoid. We end up experiencing more stress, worry and self-loathing, over failing to meet our goals. But in a world where doing more all the time is the norm, how can we treat ourselves with the upmost kindness and understanding…?

Help! I feel like I’m not doing enough…

Hey Guys! What’s new? How’s your week been?

So, I wanted to talk about feeling like you’re not doing enough when you can or should be doing so much more. Many of us young people struggle with this, especially in an era where you can create your own platform and opportunities. Yet, how can one overcome the sometimes debilitating feeling of not reaching your full potential?
