Happy = Uninspired

Isn’t it funny how you are the most uninspired to write when you’re happy? How whenever things are going your way, you just don’t feel like you have anything good to say? Or maybe that’s just me… But lately, my posts have lacked enthusiasm. I’ve been posting more pictures and videos than actual words. When I do post words, they aren’t very interesting. And I’m going to blame it all on being happy. As silly as that sounds, my best writing usually stems from aggravation, sorrow, or being completely irrate. Without any of those feelings… I’m left without much to say. At least on my blog.

It feels weird to say this, but please forgive me for being happy. Well, not for being happy, but for the lack of inspiration I have when I’m happy. But the fact is, I’m just so happy to be back in Chicago, living in my old apartment, hanging out with my roommates, spending more time with my family, seeing the skyline everytime I drive down Lakeshore Drive, knowing I have a nephew that will be here in just a few short months, excited to start grad school… and other things that I choose not to write about. I must be completely nauseating to everyone around me as I skip around the apartment, singing, and smiling about everything.

But I’m here, and I’m trying. I’ve been working on this post for about half an hour now hoping I would magically have really cool things to write about. But nope, not happening.

I’m sorry guys… but at least I’m smiling, right?

P.S. You will all get very sick of me repeating this for the next two weeks, but please enter my contest! You’d be doing my a favor. A HUGE favor.

You must never apologize for being happy! I am the same way: not having much to say when things are going good. But every once in a while it’s really nice you see people not complaining and having things go their way. And some times all you can say is “I’m really happy right now”. I’m so glad to see you happy!

I think I wrote the exact same post a few months ago. Sometimes, you are just content, and there’s nothing more to say than that.

Ah yes, I’ve noticed it’s harder to write personal stuff when you’re happy. It’s weird. I’m trying to overcome it; I’d like to be happy AND write well, if that’s possible.

you don’t need to apologize for being happy!

it’s your blog and you can say (or not say) as much as you want!

I can definitely relate to this… it’s always easier to find the words when you are unhappy but finding words when you ARE happy? So much trickier. But thank goodness you are happy, good for you lady!

To a certain extent you are spot on. At the moment, although I am “happy”, I am fuming about things around me. As a result I have 9 draft posts waiting to go out :D

As much as I love reading blogs…. I wouldnt want to wish unhappiness on you… smile, be happy - it comes way above blogging :)

That’s so great that you’re happy! I am also uninspired to write when I’m happy because life is too good…I should be out doing something fun..not writing about it! Haha.

That’s awesome. I wish it was the same for me. I too have been posting more videos and pictures lately. When I don’t blog and become uninspired, I’m usually sad and down. However, when I am happy, I have too much awesome stuff to do that I don’t have time to post and often forget to. It’s a lose lose for me.
