Creativity Stifled

Looks like this blog has taken a back seat to life once again. Truth be told, things are pretty busy at work and I’ve been working weekends plus spending most spare moments with Matt when I can. It doesn’t help at all when I work about 38 – 40 hours per week of work, not taking into account the time it takes to commute to work (about 2 hours daily). Those 2 hours are not much but it’s nice to be in the car driving & talking to your boyfriend with nobody around 🙂


Last long weekend I ended up working 6 days but thankfully had a weekend due to the public holiday on Monday. Am so thankful I have a 4 day week this week with a 2 day weekend, but with moving into a new house, I’ve got heaps to sort out and unpack. Last few times I moved house, I didn’t unpack for 4 years! Yes, I have to do it a bit at a time this round to avoid that from happening again. An hour each day of cleaning house and unpacking does take its toll on free time! Now, if only I had a genie and it gave me a wish. I’d wish for there to be more than 24 hours in a day!


I guess the long and short of all this is I’m feeling a bit stilfed creatively. I’m not the most creative person on the street, but I do lash out every now and again. I haven’t written a fully comprehensive blog post or article in years and its been eating at me lately. Matt restarted his blog, which gave me the motivation to redo my blog but now have seemed to not be able to write a post the way I want it to read. It’s as if I’ve got the words all in a muddle in my head but can’t put them to pen and paper (or computer) in a way that would read well. And that frustrates me.


They say that the brain is neuroplastic and that with work and practice, things do come back and skills can be regained. I’m hoping that this will be a good opportunity for me to practive my writing skills once again and have a creative outlet once again. Here’s to a good, stable and regular creative outlet!
