Blogtober has been really fun so far but some days I’m filled with a special kind of panic if I’ve failed to pre-plan a post. It’s funny though, how you can start out a day with no idea and then be inspired by anything: a conversation with colleagues, a news report.
I was going to focus on a few feelings I have about some current news stories but you know what? It’s been a good, creative week and I’m not down for thinking negatively right now. Quite the opposite in fact.
On Tuesday, my podcast partner and I recorded a couple of new shows, one of which features our very first guest spot and it was so awesome I positively skipped home afterwards. (Not really, but I got a cab with a smile on my face). The next day and this morning, I’ve been carrying myself like Snow White, followed by woodland animals, smiling at everyone and just in love with life.
I’m in a weird position in work in that I’m flailing a bit creatively. I love my team and what I do, but it’s not an inspired role a lot of a time and I was starting to wain. In some ways the new injection of fun projects – the podcast and my blog, the collab with Jillian – have combated the stagnancy.
The podcasting in particular feels like an achievement. My friend and I talked about maybe trying something and now we’re actually doing it. Making plans and getting them down. It feels important and I feel more alert than I have in a long time. I have a new lease of life, and it feels fucking amazing.
I genuinely can’t wait to see where we go next.
What have you guys been up to? ❤
