It’s not easy motivating yourself.

I have been struggling lately with the pursuit of my writing. I’m losing motivation and feel overwhelmed with the amount of ideas I have. It’s put me in a place where I can’t help but sit around and compare myself to others.

Here is my most recent journal entry I wrote to myself:

“Dear Journal,

I’m feeling so discouraged about my writing lately. Every time I sit down to write, I feel like I’m stuck in a rut. It’s like my creativity has just dried up, and I don’t know how to get it back.

I know that every writer goes through periods of low motivation, but it’s hard not to feel like I’m failing. I keep thinking about all the other writers out there who are producing amazing work, while I’m just struggling to put a few words together.

It’s frustrating because writing used to be something that brought me so much joy. I loved the feeling of getting lost in a story, of creating characters and worlds that felt real to me. But now, it just feels like a chore.

I’ve tried all the usual strategies for getting motivated: taking breaks, setting goals, seeking inspiration. But nothing seems to be working. It’s like I’m just going through the motions, without any real passion or drive.

I know I need to keep going, even when it feels difficult. But it’s hard to stay motivated when it feels like I’m not making any progress. I’m not sure what the answer is, but I’m going to keep trying. Maybe if I just keep showing up, even when it feels like a struggle, something will shift.

In the meantime, I’m going to try to be kind to myself. Writing is hard work, and it’s okay to struggle sometimes. I’m going to keep reminding myself that every step, even the difficult ones, are part of the journey.

Thanks for listening, journal. It helps to get all these thoughts and feelings out of my head and onto paper.

Until next time…”

I feel that showing this entry is the only way I can really display how I feel about the journey of writing I’m having at the moment.

I’ve been spending lots of time inside lately too and haven’t been out as much as I usually have. It’s a difficult push forward for me at this time of my life but I am thankful for having the right support system around me.

Thank you for listening and let me know how you all feel, have you ever felt like this, or struggled with your creativity?
