This week I’ve got nothing to write about. Believe you and me I wanted to be a bit more inspirational and inspiring than that but it aint happening this week!
Don’t worry I’m not in a bad place, stressed out or struggling to focus, quite the opposite really. I like to write my blog at the same time each week so in the couple of days leading up to it I start to think about subjects I want to write about and start planning things in my head. It got to today and there was still no flashes of inspiration, even taking the dog for a walk which usually helps failed to deliver any meaningful ideas.
So I thought – sod it, what’s the worst that’s going to happen if I don’t write anything this week? My blog will still be there and I’d rather not write something just for the sake of it.
Once I reached this conclusion, I instantly felt calmer, more relaxed, I wasn’t panicking about getting my thoughts down. AA Milne was right. There is a value in doing nothing – I’m an expert in it and today served as a reminder! So much so that it inspired me to write about nothing!
If something is causing you too much stress and anxiety, take a break, move away, do something that helps you switch off. Or literally – do nothing. Find a quiet space, chill, and empty your thoughts. Think about when you’re on holiday, how good does it feel to switch off, lie on a beach and chill. Take mini holiday’s in your mind and see where it takes you.
Hopefully next week I’ll be able to write about something but today I’m pleased to be able to offer you nothing! x
