For the past few weeks, I have been bored and craving some form of change. Nothing has been really inspiring me anymore and I feel like my creativity has left me. Everything I have been seeing, I have already seen before and/or experienced it. For example, my Instagram feed bores me. For the most part, I just constantly scroll and double tap. There are a few accounts that inspire me and give me ideas. I want to revamp it but I am not sure how, it’s like I know what I want my feed to look like but I can’t formulate it into a hashtag or key words to search so I can follow new accounts. Another example is when I was in the mall shopping with my mom a months ago. While we were walking to the different stores I said, “I used to love shopping but now it is so boring. Everything looks the same and I hate most of these two second trends. Some of this stuff look like it doesn’t have any deep thought behind them.” It took me forever to find a few pieces I was excited about and fit my style. I like it when clothes give me a feeling, vibe, something. I don’t randomly pick clothes. Clothes for me need to tell a story (this could be the New Yorker in me).
The absent of my creativity could be the reason why I am craving change. I keep thinking to myself that I need a new experience or some form of change then I will feel creative again. The annoying part is I don’t know exactly what I want the new experience or change to be so I can’t ignite it. There is a possibility that an opportunity for a change could come my way in its own time but I feel like I would just be waiting. In the meanwhile I plan to do a few things that could possibility help me get out of this rut and boredom. Some of the things are the things that I wrote about in Ways I Jump-start my Creativity . One of the other things is practicing staying in the present moment so I can get a better feel of my environment and possibly more direction. I also want to connect with more creatives and talk about our work and experience their work. Maybe being around creative energy would be help bring back my creative energy.
