Monday, Monday, Monday…the dreaded day of the week. Do you ever feel blue on Monday? I know I do.
What do I do to channel new thoughts to overcome the blues that block my blog writing?
I look up first. Pictures of the blue sky always make me smile. Doing so helps me realize I’m a small being, in a huge world, and things could be worse than feeling blue on a Monday morning. A change in perspective always helps.
And then I grab a cup of coffee to pump myself up – I am the boss of my day (until I get to work and find things directing me off my calendar plans).
When finding the words to write escape me, and my cup feels less than full, I find ways to move past the blinking line.
I imagine I’m far-far-away, where no worries mon happens, and I relax. I start looking for a golden egg in all of my pictures. And grab a drink? Well, sometimes.
Okay, I don’t do that on a Monday morning! Unless I’m on vacation, on a beach somewhere, watching sailboats float by, with the waves splashing, bow bouncing, people smiling and enjoying themselves. Ya mon.
Photos, memories, photos, memories, whether I’m alone or with others, my photos tell stories and are a conduit to thoughts I write about.
I get lucky sometimes and find photos that fit my thoughts or stretch them.
As I sip my coffee, I sniff through pictures to see if anything grabs my attention. I smile a lot as I remember all that I have seen and captured in photos.
Well, that sounds simple doesn’t it, why didn’t you think of that?
You did, you do and you have, I just reminded you of how easy it is to use photos to spark ideas. Let thoughts flow out from the shadows and fill the page with words. Let your fingertips type away and escape the blinking line on your computer screen.
Flowing, flowing, flowing on to the page.
Go grab a cup, two or three and write a post, about what you see. Before you know it, you’ll have overcome the blinking line and those dreaded empty thoughts.
You may not write something that is perfect, but you overcame the Monday blues! Now you can begin your week, guilt free from a blinking line that blocked your funnel to creativity.
There’s always tomorrow to write a masterpiece! Happy Monday to you!
