I love where ideas come from. I love how they randomly appear when you just allow them in. I love that I don’t always have to be on my game and productive to feel good about myself. I love that I can write a blog about essentially nothing. This is my non-blog.

It sounds random I know, but I am sitting here racking my brains trying to come up with a great subject to write about. Something that will inspire, something that will empower, and something that will entertain. Guess what I came up with? Nothing! I was just about to start berating myself for not being creative, productive, and proactive, which has always been my go-to, when I stopped myself. Why can’t I write a non-blog? I can, and I will.

In life we all go through phases. There are times when I am on-purpose, in-the-flow, and getting stuff done. There are other times when it all just seems like a bit of a struggle, and I feel like a bit of a non-event. I know this is not just me, even though I used to think there was something wrong with me when I felt this way. Now I know I am representing the masses when I say this. I want to remove the stigma of the flat-spots, the low-energy-space, and the non-productive moments. In fact, I want to celebrate the non-events with a non-blog!

If you have ever watched Seinfeld, you will know it is described as a show about nothing, and it is hilarious. Well, my opinion anyway. We spend so much time in our lives trying to be on point, on track, and on target, that we miss out on being on the couch and switched off. Sometimes being on the couch is exactly where you need to be. In fact, after I finish not writing this non-blog, I am going to have a nanna-nap on the couch.

If I am being honest, there are certain parts of my life right now that are not buzzing as I would like them to be. My creativity is feeling a little blocked; hence the non-blog. My energy is a little lagging; hence my desire for a nanna-nap. My motivation is a little lack-lustre; hence I am just about ready to wrap up this non-blog. With all these feelings, which in the past I would have judged and condemned, I am now open to and even celebrating. Why? Because it happens to us all and it is simply part of being a fabulous human being. Don’t fight it, embrace it.

I know it won’t be long before I get my mojo back. Until then I am going to enjoy my down-time, my lack of productivity, my lethargy, and my non-blog. I want to encourage you to do the same when it happens to you. When you feel fabulous, go hard. When you feel flat, give yourself a break. There is so much to learn in life. Every situation, every experience, and every feeling can help us accept ourselves for who we are and what we do, or don’t do. In my podcast this week with Danielle Matthews called, Post traumatic growth, we discuss learning and growing from every situation, even the low spots.

Enough from me, the couch is calling. Enjoy your non-moments, as I have enjoyed not writing my non-blog.
