Day 6 — Just Start — Thirty in Thirty

2 min readMar 16, 2017


Today was one of those days where I could not think of what to write about, or post, or photograph.

A completely uninspired day.

I know it is part of the creation process, to feel at a loss of words and thoughts.

Part of it is feeling overwhelmed between personal, work, and social priorities. The other part is being afraid. The only thing I am afraid of is failing. But, what am I going to fail? Nothing.

I have read so many articles about creative block, how to get out of a funk etc. etc. and the one thing to overcome creative block that comes back every time is, “just start”.

Start writing. Start Drawing. Start scribbling. Start singing. Start painting. Stop thinking and just start.

What you are currently reading is something that came from just starting. I didn’t want to fail, which, in this case would be doing nothing. This is better than nothing and I need to remind myself of that.

Today is a success. I felt the way I felt, took it in, and forced myself to write about these vulnerable feelings of not being inspired, creative etc. 100% of the time. I know this could easily happen again over the next 30 days, but at least I know I have a place to start, even if that place is nowhere.

This is part of my Thirty in Thirty series. You can read Day 1 here, and follow the links up until now.

Thanks for taking the time to read! If you enjoyed this post, be sure to 💚, follow, and share so others can enjoy too and if you want follow me on IG!
