Inspire Me, Damnit.

Have you ever felt the need to make a stunning exit?


Cue the last scene of The Breakfast Club; imagine yourself stomping outside, fist in air (possibly flashing an inappropriate gesture – well, maybe it’s appropriate), Simple Minds on full volume…

Maybe that’s how you feel when you didn’t get the results you expected?

Or when you have a frustrating encounter with an annoying colleague?

Perhaps, when you’re told that you, or your work, are not good enough?

Or even…when you get sideswiped by a cross-dressing Starbucks barista in your brand new 2014 Jeep Cherokee (no, I don’t want you to ‘hook me up with coffee’ dude…)

So, okay.

You’re all like “We get it, we’re pissed.”


But, how do you come back from such a traumatizing experience?

Well, if I were you, I would take a few deep, yogic breaths, and maybe a flow or two, and let it all go. Or, if I were you, I would slide into a deep pit of despair, also known as angry writer’s block, and lose all hope of anything remotely creative coming out of your brain for the next 5 months. Yeah I mean, I didn’t say I was perfect, so.

I definitely don’t have all the answers, but I’m pretty sure Google might.

So, what do you do when you’re at a complete loss of words? Well, I’m pretty sure you’ve got nothing to lose at this point. You can start by reading a wikiHow called “How To Get Inspired (Detailed Guide).” Just kidding! I can tell you from experience that it’s pretty lackluster, boring, and really uninspiring. HOWEVER.

YOU CAN do a few of these things:

> Change your Focus

> Go Outside. Explore.

> Brainstorm

> Pump up your Creativity (Pump it UP!)

> Pet a dog (Or, I guess if you’re a cat person, you’re a cat person. Meow.)

> Don’t be avoidant, face the matters at hand. (Real talk – Your issues? They aren’t going anywhere.)

> Talk to your friends (You have hopes, dreams, aspirations. Discuss them.)

> Join an Organization (Networking does a body good. Art Museums and Ad Clubs are pretty awesome too).

> Start a journal. A clear mind promotes possi vibes. (In this instance, word vomit is ok)

> Write a blog post about finding inspiration. I mean.

> Try something new.

> Let something go. (What no longer serves you? Say BAI.)

> Refresh, Re-brand, Rejuvenate.

Bottom line, I hope this can be of some inspiration to you. #payitforward. I’d say, if you can check a few of these things off your list – you’re probably off to a pretty good start. Hey, whaddya know? I’m writing again…
