I was talking to my bff today about being in a funk. We’ve all felt it- being stuck in a slump, writer’s block, being unable to create beautiful things. I decided there were two things we (all) need to climb out of our holes.

The strange thing, though, is that when we’re feeling uninspired it’s difficult to focus on any one thing. We often get lost in a maze of silly, scattered thoughts and end up digging ourselves deeper into that stupid hole.  I’ve found that looking at other people’s inspired work almost always leaves me with a sense of hope and a bunch of sunshine.

How many great things does this video make you want to do?

Go create something. Go explore. You’ll feel like gold (and glitter).
