27/365: Stuck

I’ve been feeling kind of stuck. Literally stuck, because 2 years ago, we really though we’d be moving soon and yet we’re still here. My wanderlust is real. But, I also feel stuck in other ways. Stuck because we struggle to break out of the pattern of being late for school every morning. Stuck because I couldn’t find a preschool that matched up with my schedule better. Stuck because there are a couple of milestones I’m eager to see my kids hit and they haven’t reached them as quickly as I hoped.

I’ve also been feeling stuck creatively. I actually think all of the above adds into how I’m feeling creatively. Stuck routine = no inspiration for creativity. And, the thoughts start… if only it was summer, if only we lived somewhere more interesting, if only the days were longer, if only I had more time to devote, if only I had xyz gear…

I am trying to break myself out of this thought process of making up excuses. I am trying to challenge myself to make interesting photos, even if I feel a bit… bored. To just keep pushing through the stuck feeling.

Today, I was happy with what I imported to my computer.

  1. Hi to all of you
    I know what your feeling in a sense as far as being stuck, with such gloominess out in the winter, and that stifles things without question.
    Where is it you want to move ?

  2. Some of the best inspiration, artistic and otherwise, comes from those periods of being stuck. Your brain is just busy coming up with new ideas. 🙂
