MUSE ME #17

 NOW PLAYING:  La femme - La Femme

Oh, hello October, where the hell did you come from? Honestly I feel like I've been having one of those weeks months years. When everything is just all over the place and you want and need to centre yourself but it's seemingly impossible. Nothing goes bloody right, including the best laid plans. Everything feels erroneous and ideas are stale. Inspiration, the globe-trotting prick has abandoned me, extending his weekly vacation to monthly and preferring the company of cashed up Europeans over yours truly. He remains adrift, most probably overindulging in strawberry gelato, airy macarons and eclairs swelling with crème pâtissière and ganache.

Creative funks and blocks in theory are expected to relent sporadically, yet mine seem overtly comfortable by my side. How I wish they'd depart and free me so I could continue making magic. Urgh when does it end? So much for making August my bitch. How do you break free of those all consuming ruts? And anyone else feel like 2014 is panning out to be one of those years?

I suppose there is still adequate time for something fabulous to manifest itself; not all hope is lost just yet.

Kismet happens.

  5. Babe, do not worry. Creativity will settle back to your brain, try not to over-think it. I feel like we're stuck in the same situation, the block seems to sit comfortably by my side too and everything I do feels like a waist of time and space. Let's relax and accept it. Deal? Deal!

  6. No worries! The year will get better. Speak greatness in existence. Do not forget about the Chopard sunglasses giveaway ($500.00 Value).

  7. Your creative block will pass, I am pretty sure about that.
    I have one, too right now. I do feel creative, but I don't know
    where and how to express it at the moment (does this sound strange?). :)

    Nevertheless, the pictures are all amazing and so well put together
    (don't tell me you're not creative ;))

    1. Not at all. I feel like that sometimes too and I honestly don't know what is more annoying, not having an idea or having an idea and being unable to bring it to life. xx

  11. I know how you feel! This year has had it's ups and downs. I think with me moving 2,500+ miles away from a place I've always called home and finding myself as a person here in Hawai'i definitely contributes to the struggles but I'm hoping for better days! Wishing for better days for you as well!

    1. Thank you sweet Katherine. Moving so many miles can definitely put you a little out of whack so I hope you'll be able to find stable ground soon enough. And of course that all amazing things are headed your way too. xx

  12. Hey Sonia, I totally feel you! Recently, I haven;t been doing much of things I've planned. It is frustrating and the days are approaching just too quickly. October is my most hectic month workwise. We are organizing events at national public sector level. I hope for better days for the both of us. Hope that things go your way soon. *Kicks the October Bitch away*

    1. I can't believe it's already October. I'm like you, I plan away and sadly I realised that I hadn't even made a dent on that list of plans! Health-wise this year has been terrible and the root of my lackadaisical nature. I hope this month will be kinder to you too, and hopefully less chaotic, especially with all these events you have to plan xx

  24. hey Sonia, Aww, I'm sorry to hear you're having one of those years....and I've definitely been there in the past. I can't believe how fast 2014 has flown by and the best advice I can give during a bad week that turns into a month and then months to a year is to know things can only go up from here. And just work on your ideas (don't think they're stale) a little bit every day. Even if time goes by, eventually all the little things daily will start adding up to something big and you won't have time to worry about the bad guy either. ;) But seriously, time is flying way too fast.

  33. Hi Sonia, hang in there with me. you're not the only one honey:). I had bad September and seemingly October is the worse down hell for me too, believe me, we will be just fine, lets the time goes by and forget about yesterday and don't think about tomorrow yet either:). What else we can possibly do? not really. I wish you a fabulous oct:).

  35. Globe trotting prick?? Sonia I feel so bad, I don't know a thing about your love life! Share more. Well... from the write up of what he's doing.. European companions, macarons, eclairs...... I'd be there too if I could.
    Ruts are a nasty place to be. Join him - or go on your own adventure.
    On my blog my most recent post is introducing a number of travel bloggers who took the plunge and went abroad. They tell you how they went about it.. talk you through budgetting etc. You really shouldn't even CONSIDER it. Just go! You'll never regret it/ While you're young and have nothing holding you back - do it. One day you'll wake up and it will be too late xxxx


    PS I hope you feel better soon sweety, email me if you ever need to chat personally xxxxx

  41. I have to say, 2014 hasn't exactly been my year, either. Lots of health scares/near misses, stress, and general anxiety around formerly stable relationships (work, personal, all of the above). So crazy!

    Here's hoping we have a better 2015...? :)

  43. I love your writing, even if you feel like you're lacking inspiration you manage to create the best metaphors and interesting posts-- keep it up! I know October will be a good month for you, breathe in that crisp air and pumpkin spice and be inspired! Inspiration doesn't need to just be from travelling and being in beautiful places, you definitely have what it takes to take those normal moments and make them special. I always feel like I am expecting something ordinary when I read your posts but am suddenly am blown away by the originality of your writing and topic.
    If anything, I need inspiration from you!

  49. It's insane how fast this year went by, can't believe it's December soon! It's really scary. I barely remember what I did for the whole year, haha. Even now, seems like it's nearly mid-October, but feels like it's just yesterday when the month started. Uggghh =/ I hope you'll have an eventful month Sonia, need to make the most out of anything since time flies a million miles per hour, so insane! Have a great week! Adore your photo edits, as always <3

  51. ahhh no, being in a rut is just the worst. everything feels beige and you can't get your mind to work no matter how much you ask it. i always find just admitting defeat and letting yourself be lazy for two weeks always helps. that way you just destress and those thoughts will come aflowin' again. hopefully ;)

  55. I've had a healthy helping of what you're experiencing over past years, however thankfully I'm free of that. We are each individual and so advise that applies to one, is unlikely to apply to another.. however having said that, if you're feeling as though things have been all over the place for you lately, the best thing to do is to write down what it is EXACTLY what you want and from there figure out why you aren't experiencing that, or perhaps working towards it. Let me know how your temporary (remember, this is all it is) funk goes, Sonia! Good luck! :)

    I've followed you on Instagram by the way and hope we can connect on there?! :)
