Writing slumps

It happened: Everything was just fine and then boom there it was – my writing slump.

I knew this could happen to the reading part of me, but to the writing part? I didn’t know that. I suddenly felt like I ran out of things to write about. Like every time I started to write something it would just be nonsense, unimportant or simply not authentic. So I thought I would just give it a break and sooner or later it will all go back to normal. Here I am four weeks later and it’s still the same. But here I am: writing.

I came to the realization, that next to all the things that are going on in our lives, it is easy to cut of the things that we do just for fun, the things we do by choice. When life happens, those things are left out and its hard to include them in your daily life again once they have been excluded. So here I am writing. Still not entirely inspired but I made a choice: I chose to write even if I don’t feel like it. Because I realized: if I don’t write I’m ignoring a piece of who I am and what makes me happy.

So to who ever is reading this right now, who can relate – here is my message:

Do what you love and what you’re good at, even if you don’t feel like it, because it makes you who you are! And don’t worry, I’m pretty sure it happens to all of us!

When I first saw you I smiled a silent smile of admiration.

I watched you laugh and had to join.

I couldn’t keep from starring.

I even dared to take a picture of you – you the sunny turning point of my so rainy day.

A smile was all you granted me, a few questions and some small talk – well, at least something my day dream factory can work with.

I know technically I don’t know you at all, yes I only saw you once and barely talked to you. But let’s face it:

Most good stories start with strangers.

written thoughts

Words – a definition

Words are just words
But still they are what they are
Thoughts that had enough strength
to make their way out of the head
into the air
Where they linger and wait
For someone
To find their hidden meaning
