Various and Sundry Things: Reset Button


Lately I have been struggling with finding inspiration; this along with my crazy schedule as of late has left me a little absent. Melissa and I have both had several conversations on the topic of writing without inspiration and both agree that is tends to leave us/you with a sub par product. This past weekend we both left the confines of the hectic cities we reside in to the pleasantries of a slower pace of life. I have to say, you don’t really realize how much you need until you have these small opportunities to recalibrate yourself. A typical trip home requires me to continue to travel to a million different locations while I am there-it is exhausting. This past weekend I went home to surprise my best friend for her 30th birthday and didn’t tell a soul. It was so refreshing to go home and not have a thing to do except binge watch The Shahs of Sunset-coincidentally Reza passed me when we arrived home in JFK.

Moving forward I have decided in the future I will make more of these sorts of trips, excursions that are equally beneficial to everyone involved and not allow myself to feel any guilt if I don’t get to squeeze in a visit with someone. At the end of the day I am one human, and I am no use to anyone if I am sick, exhausted and cranky-ain’t nobody got time for that.

Now that I feel as though I am getting my footing again, I am making an effort to find  things in my everyday life that can be a source of inspiration for me. We all get the winter blues and sometimes it just helps to have those things that give you perspective. I look forward to pushing this reset button and sharing these things with you.
